This the second of these saws we have purchased, our first has been battered with use, we had that one for about ten years, so it is really good value, we use it for logs for our fire and small/medium boughs etc. A great product.
This is my 4th Scorpion, for me the best saw on the market. Solidly built, solid performance, excellent clean cut on thick wood & logs, adaptable for many uses, just perfect for me. I always have one handy, use almost daily in a wide range of tasks & it has never let me down. 10 out of 10.
Black and decker are a good trusted name and this item is no different.
Had one before so entirely meets expectations. Handy saw for diy
Great Service in these difficult times. Good communications. One of the few sellers on my save list . Thank you
Perfect for cutting thick branches
Very pleased with Scorpion, better than expected. Cut through 4x2s and decking planks effortlessly. Door plates and metal framework presented no problem. Strongly recommend.
Had one of these before & they really work well. I did a lot of heavy duty stuff that it probably shouldn't have coped with. Impressed with the range of things it can do but never used the jig saw element as I have one anyway. Easy to change blades & not heavy to work with.
Well built and flexible with many different blades. Perhaps a touch under powered for outdoor applications.
Useful saw with decent cutting power. Better performance than some others I’ve tried. Handy set of interchangeable blades for wood and metal. Power is limited on really thick wood but good value for d.i.y. use.
Delivered on time. No complaints up to now.
Husband wanted this as a replacement he was really pleased with the fast delivery.
Borrowed my neighbours Scorpion saw and was really impressed. Product arrived very quickly. A well made product. It comes with extra blades. Easy to charge. I have used this saw for sawing wood of various thicknesses and also cutting down small shrubs/tree stumps.
pleased with product delivered as promised more heavy than I thought but no problem thank tj.
I used this in the garden to cut back some large shrubs, very pleased with the product.
This electric saw has been so useful already. High quality workmanship and easy to assemble blades and use. For me it’s just the right product.
Excellent value for the price does what I need it to do.
This is the third Scorpion that I have purchased over the last six years. The previous two certainly performed well sawing up waste wood and small logs for firewood. For the price and performance it was worth purchasing a third.
Product as described
Good little saw, great for cutting wood for the burner and doing small DIY projects about the house.
Brilliant tool does just what I wanted it to do. Great value and quick efficient delivery
Really pleased with this item. It was the most competitively priced I could find. Was delivered early and it is robust for what it is. I was looking for something to take branches off but don’t feel safe using a chainsaw and this is excellent. Perfect for the job and easy to use. Not too heavy to hold. Easy to get replacement blades for it too when needed.
I would recommend this product 100%.Very happy with my purchase and will be shopping here again . Thank you so much tooled-up !!!
Excellent product and fantastic next day delivery
Just used it lining my shed- perfect.
Bought this as a present for my husband, he loves it and wishes he had got one ages ago and kept going over all the jobs in the past he could have used it for.
fast delivery don’t expect to slice though logs in any fast way you still have to work at it. But saying that it’s a very useful tool
This was a replacement buy. Was very happy with old one which served me well. Have been using new one and fingers crossed will feel the same. !
Bought it for my dad, he is very pleased with it
a sturdy and useful saw easy to use
Good all-round saw. Purchased it so we could cut down with minimal effort, some trees in our garden, and then cut up into logs. Good price, on time delivery, what more does one want?
easy to assemble, very good to work with, does a very good job, would recommend this item, good value for money
Totally satisfied with this product
A complete newby to power tools being of "mature years" but I found it so easy to use. It is straightforward to put the blades in and remove, following the recommended safety guidelines I was soon carrying out tasks I needed to do. Definitely recommend.
Great saw which does what it says. The larger blade is a bit flimsy but cuts well. Easy to use
A replacement last one 30 years old
This saw is ok for the price but dont expect it to last very long. Ive had them before and the motor packs up after a while. Its also tricky changing the blades
I was disappointed with this purchase. It arrived with only 2 blades included. Because I was in urgent need of the saw I had to pay £10 to get the blade I needed. So in this case I was disappointed with the purchase.
Very handy little saw, does the job perfectly, small enough for the wife to use. Will cover most jobs around the house with ease. Excellent value.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Does this saw come complete with blades?
A : Hi Emily, yes - the Black & Decker KS890CEN is supplied with a starter pack of blades
Q : The bl, never any problems, but now it keeps dropping offde keeps falling off, I have had it for over a year
A : Hi John, the KS890ECN has a 24 month warranty from point of purchase so as long as it's not been used for commercial purposes you will be able to contact the dealer you purchased it from to arrange a return if it needs servicing or replacing
Q : I like this little saw, but am concerned that the blade is becoming very slack. This happened once before and the blade fell out while in use, but it was still under guarantee then. Is this likely to happen again.
A : Hi Maureen, I'm afraid I can't say if you are likely to experience this issue again, although all machines will inevitably start to fail in one way or other after they have been used for long enough - however it does seem like quite a few users find that they have trouble fitting the blades correctly on these tools, so it may be worth watching a few videos online to see if there's anything you're missing when doing this? (apparently the manual doesn't make it very clear)
Q : I am interested in the maximum size of log it will cut. In one post you say it will cut a branch up to 229mm but in another you say it is NOT suitable for cutting a branch of 60mm??! Can you please clarify. Many thanks.
A : Hi Rebecca, I'm not sure who wrote the reply about it not being able to cut through 60mm branches but it was obviously a mistake! (maybe they were thinking 60cm?) As stated in the other reply you mention, with a blade of 239mm and taking into account the 10mm reciprocating action of the tool, you should be able to cut through logs of up to around 229mm diameter.
Q : I am considering buying this saw to remove some dead branches from a small tree in my garden. I read the answer below that the saw is not suitable to remove a branch of 60mm. Can you tell me what thickness of branch it is suitable for please?
A : With a blade length of 239mm, the maximum branch size this saw will cut would be about 229mm.
Q : Does this saw come with plastic carry case as I know purchases a few years ago came with case?
A : This saw does not come with a case, however, the KS890EK does come with a case.
Q : is the scorpion saw suitable for cutting 100mm square fence posts
A : When combined with the X29961 Wood & Plastic Cutting Blade. This saw will be capable of cutting through 100mm square fence posts
Q : How many blades come with this saw. Is this saw suitable for cutting tre branches 60mm thick
A : I can confirm this Black and Decker Saw does come with 3 different blades and it is not suitable for cutting tree branches of 60mm thick.
