An unexpected breakdown of the blade in the available Kershaw folding saw forced to start searching and choosing a new one. Widespread folding saws of the famous Fiskars brand did not suit the price. In my opinion, unreasonably overpriced. In the end, at a very humane price, the Raco 4216-53 / 313C folding garden saw was purchased.
Folding Garden Saw Raco 4216-53 / 313С manufactured by Kraftool I / E GmbH, Germany, review and test.
trees with a diameter of up to 17 centimeters, and everything else that is thicker will make them more sophisticated and the sawing process will no longer be fast and comfortable. Since Raco has a collapsible design, if necessary, for example, in case of breakage or if it is just too lazy to sharpen the saw teeth when dull, the saw blade can be easily replaced with a new one.
The plastic handle of the Raco 4216-53 / 313C folding saw is quite ergonomic. Its dimensions allow you to arbitrarily change the position of the holding hand, thereby reducing the fatigue that occurs when sawing, and if necessary, you can saw by holding the handle with both hands.
Impressions after working with a folding saw Raco 4216-53 / 313С.
In the process of working, the Raco 4216-53 / 313C folding saw showed a confident, even aggressive, cut. It copes well with viscous and wet wood, does not wedge in the cut. According to subjective feelings, the effort when sawing wood of different hardness practically does not differ. The steel from which the saw blade is made does not even hint at the possibility of rust, despite the fact that most of the time it was operated in high humidity.
The hand of the saw does not rub the palm; ergonomics are on the level. The ability to quickly change the angle of the Raco saw blade right during sawing adds convenience. The locking mechanism so far functions without comment. There were no difficulties with cleaning the saw from clogged sawdust. In general, the instrument is quite satisfied. Good value for money and good performance. If there was also a protective cover in the saw set, then everything would be absolutely wonderful.
