    Selecting the best saw for the job

    Published on 16 April 2019, Tuesday, 4:59 AM

    Whatever your next DIY project is, there's a good chance it will call for a saw. Make sure you're choosing the right tool for the job with these handy hints.

    Chain saws

    If you've got a green thumb or have lofty landscaping ideas, a chain saw is the way to go. Garden DIY is much easier when you have the right tools on hand, and chain saws make cutting stubborn branches quick and easy.

    If you've got hedges or overhanging branches that are just out of reach, try a pole pruning saw to optimise your safety. It allows you to reach high spots while both your feet remain firmly planted on the ground.


    Most DIY experts will require a jigsaw at some point in their job. It's a precise variable speed saw designed to accurately cut through timber, light sheet metal and composites. It's a handy tool for both the trade and home environment.

    Brick saws

    For those of you who've been tasked with a DIY job that involves bricks, it's likely that you'll require a brick saw. The tool is designed to accurately cut through bricks and pavers, and has an integrated water recycling system to make your job that much easier.
