As soon you pick this tool up you know it will be up to the job. At first I thought it felt quite heavy, but after prolonged use this isn’t a problem, in fact the weight seems to make cutting easier! Nearly every saw you need all in 1, removing the front end of the frame and attaching a hacksaw blade to the remaining part of the frame is particularly useful when cutting off pipes in tight spaces for myself being a plumbing & heating engineer. Another quality product from Stanley!

My First impressions was this saw is a bit on the heavy side, if anything the sleight extra weight helps with the cutting, very easy to go though all the extra functions but watching the video made it a lot easier for using it for the first time .

As soon as u pick this tool up you can feel the weight and quality of it. It's my preferred hacksaw by far even though I haven't used any of the other functions. Good comfortable grip and really accurate!

Although heavier than what i'm used too its strong and very well built converts very easy from one function to another the low angle comes in useful so many times i found the weight a bonus dont get me wrong you dont have to be popeye to use it but when you first start to cut you dont have to force down on the blade and use the weight of the saw amd control the cut excellent saw

What a great tool. First impresions i thought its a bit heavy but when compared to my others theres not much more init. And the fact thats its an all metal constructed frame means that as i foumd out today you can drop it off a scafold and still be ok with the exception of a blade. The on board blade storage is really handy and all the other saw functions means this is a one for all saw. No need to carry a few diffrent frames for odd jobs. On board pad saw conversion is a good idea. Not had a chance to test that out yet will leave another review when i have done. Although all the other functions have worked out very usefull for me. I didnt find it to hard working them all out just looked at the pictures from the packageing and itkind of fell in place from there. I really like the quick blade change and tension mechanism. Its a really cleaver design. Much better then a wing nut my old one had. All in all a good universal saw that will get you out of many sticky situations.

A strong well built hacksaw with a high blade tension for greater accuracy. I've never been a fan of multi tools as they try to fit too many needs they usually miss the primary need but this tool can easily be converted into four other saws without too much fuss and becomes a good tool in all variations.

So pleased with this hacksaw, its built rugged and ready for work, it feels good in the hand and copes well with the riggers of building work. Handy blade storage so no searching around in the bottom of your tool box looking for spares. I have found the 45 degree flush cut very useful on several jobs. I'm liking the fat max range and would definately recommend

This feels from the second you pick it up like a professional quality tool. Its well made with a good weight to it. Setting aside the 4 other functions that it performs as a standalone hacksaw it really is difficult to beat. There has obviously been a lot of time taken on the ergonomics and the handle positions. The grip sections have rubber overmoulds and these really aid grip and also keep your hands a tiny bit warmer when working outdoors. Blade storage is on the top of the frame and is easily accesible. When it comes to setting the saw up for the other functions you do feel a little bit like that fella in the Day of the Jackal assembling a sniper rifle out of his crutches! All the functions work great but you do need to sit down and play around with it for a bit to puzzle them out! All in a great hacksaw with the other functions as a real bonus.
