Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ebrisse Good Saw but Crummy Bag
The saw itself is good and an old favorite in the market. But I will say that DeWalt is going cheap these days. They're now giving this ten cent cloth bag instead of the great tough cases they used to come with. I want my tools to last. That means keeping them in a well protected case. I'm very disappointed with this case as it wont protect my tool at all. The zipper is even cheap. Also the home depot description is incorrect for this tool. It no longer comes with the "heavy-duty case" that the description list. Type 1 and 2 used to come with that case, the stores are now being stocked with Type 3 of this model. I checked/confirmed this with the DeWalt parts website. Which by the way will cost you $24.67 plus shipping... that's something that USED to come with the tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MM4cooking Gift for DIY youngest son.
This was purchased by me as a gift for my youngest novice handyman son. His comments back to me are as follows. It's perfect! This saw was exactly what he wanted. Perfect size, balance and very capable of doing the job for which he wanted it. He likes the ergonomic cutting positions, enabling him to maintain a firm and steady grip with the saw while he's cutting. He likes the power and cutting action. based on his comments this reciprocating saw was everything it was described as in its advertisement write up. Definitely a great quality item for the price and a respected name of reliability.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Anyone needing a high quality, multi-purpose, high performance cutting tool should buy one of these
This is an amazingly versatile saw. It has performed beautifully on every job I’ve used it for. It has accomplished unbelievable tasks for me flawlessly from cutting lumber, metal roofing material, tail pipe, bolts and nails; to trimming trees, cutting firewood, and fabrication of custom steel parts from ¼ inch flat steel sheets for farm equipment repair. It will accept a wide range of blade types and changing blades takes only seconds and almost no effort. Anyone needing a high quality, multi-purpose, high performance cutting tool should buy one of these. The value received for price paid is excellent. This saw is a great investment that will save the user time and effort in completing many different types of projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birdy Dewalt Resiprocating Saw
My husband loved this exact saw for his birthday this past August. I was browsing for the perfect gift here on the Home Depot website and came across this Dewalt Reciprocating Saw and had to get it for his birthday. Make matters awhole lot better they were only $89 dollars. It was awhole new experience with this saw we are renovating our house and it was so much easier taking out the old nails by just sawing it and taking off the drywalland putting on a new one. Even with plumbing sawing the pipes. It was like a miracle! never saw anything like it! thanks to this website i found my husband a great gift. i recommend this powertool for everyone!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PeteW great saw for the price
i bought this saw when it was on sale for 70 dollars and for that price you cant beat it. this saw is lacking any features of todays recip saws ie. Brushless motor, adjustable shoe plate, Light, joist hanger. but for the price i got it at that is fine. the 4 position blade is great. after i bought this saw i used it to take down a big metal shed in 90+ degree weather and this saw didn't skip a beat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M477 Great Tool - 10-AMP RECIPROCATING SAW
Good tool to add to the collection for demo projects. Solidly built product. Bought this because I already owned a 18v battery model but wanted something for projects that required continuous power and no battery change. Have been happy with DeWALT products for many years. They have great customer service and quality products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aesch Like this saw.
Nice saw - big improvement over my old Skil Saw that needed an allen wrench to secure the blade. Blade insertion is easy with a toggle lever to secure/release - up/down/left/right, no issue. Variable speed and plenty of power - haven't stalled it out yet. Uses the same blades as my old Skil Saw, which is a plus.
Not sure if I like the case - fabric vs a hard case. Only thing that supports the case is cardboard, which I doubt will last long. But so far it works and keeps the saw and blades in one place.
