I am looking into buying a reciprocating saw and would appreciate advice on a suitable model
I can see from my internet search that there are many different models on the market and a large price range
I need something reasonably versatile and easy to use but not too expensive as it would only be for non frequent use for DIY jobs and light sawing jobs in the garden

I bought the Titan Screwfix one last year http://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb533r ... 240v/17639 It did the job I wanted it for cutting studs where I was repairing some wood rot damage. The blades are quite good and cheap enough not to worry about. I really do not think you need to spend more for a DIY tool.

Good choice, I think you will be impressed at what you get for the money. It is worth adding a pack of spare blades, there are loads to chose from at Screwfix for different prices.

Thanks again DWD for your recommendation - I am very pleased with the Titan - it suits my needs fine and very good value
I have used the Titan on several occasions since I picked it up from Screwfix on Tuesday
As recommended I bought a pack which included various blades from Screwfix
So farI have cut up some metal into disposable pieces to put in the refuse bin to save a trip to the nearest tip which is 7 miles away and I have used it to cut up some second hand timber which I had to make a square wooden slatted compost holder

Good you did not choose a JCB (B&Q) mine needs JCB specific blades otherwise they uncock, the JCB ones have a longer shoulder and though others fit they don't stay locked in, a right pain!
