Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect size..Too much vibration I bought this saw and kept it less than 24hours. The size and weight is terrific! The down side is it vibrates tooo much. Though it was bigger, I had to go back with the original,The Milwaukee Sawzall,less vibration and good balance and feel. October 26, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really great saw My only problem was that after giving it a vigorous first time use, I got a blister on my right thumb, even wearing leather gloves. With a long pruning blade, it did a super job of cutting roots (with the blade often in the dirt), & removing some old tough oak tree stumps, about a foot in diameter. A real workhorse. It saved hours from what I had started with a hand saw & shovel. Even though I bent the blade a few times, this saw never hesitated a single second. I am really pleased with it & will be using it to cut up & remove a cracked bathtub, in the near future, the reason I initially bought it for. February 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like it! the tool's design is a different point of view. Gets the job done and in tight spaces surprisingly easy! September 26, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding product This is an outstanding product. I’m a do it yourself home owner type, so when it comes to choosing tool to get the job done I want the quality of a professional grade tool, but I shop for the product that rides the edge in terms of price, (complicit with quality), versatility and uniqueness. The biggest driver in choosing this model of “saw’s-all” for me, was its ability to be used with one hand. Like many people, I am usually working alone and have limited workspace. If I need to cut something I also find the need to be able to hold it (piece being cut) with the other hand. The compactness, power and ergonomics of this model offer the best balance. Conventional reciprocating saws are long, making the fulcrum point far from the leverage/holding point. Having the saw engine set at a 45-degree angle allows more precise control coupled with less strain on my hand and arm. The 10 Amp motor holds its own in terms of torque, RPM’s while saving weight compared to the 12 and 15 amp models. Great buy! Only down side is that I could not find this model in either of the 2 Home Depot stores near me. Thus, getting that warm fuzzy feeling before taking it home was not available. I ordered it online, and after using the chat feature, interfacing with customer support, (and competitor pricing I found online) HD matched the lowest price and offered free shipping, so use the online chat, it works.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It was a great gift for my husband He just keeps repeating "Its' Great!" We are in the middle of remodeling our kitchen and this tool is helping with the details of tearing apart! February 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice, compact recip saw I've only had it a short time and have only used it for smaller jobs in tighter places but so far it's been great. Blade changes are easy and I like how you can insert the blade in many different orientations. April 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect size... Instead of a bulky tool, the size in this product is very convenient....feel solid ...just vibrates a little too much...that will be the downside..... April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a durable product Because of the handles shape and designed with this product it makes it difficult to reach in awkward spaces. Other than that, I have no complaint. January 19, 2014
