Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PRGBR Excellent so far
Used this to cut away a rotten door jamb. The hacksaw is well built and does a solid job. The fun part is being able to use the main blade at 45 degrees or use the little jab saw to get into tight spots. You can cut out sections that would otherwise be inaccessible which is a huge plus. You can also store extra blades in the top compartment. I think this will have an important spot in my tool box for some time to come.

How can you get excited about a Hacksaw.....Read On!!!
In the beginning of my tool investment career, my tried and true simple metal frame hacksaw was a workhorse...but always with problems. Getting and keeping tight tension, snapping blades, poor blade control and sore hands due to poor ergonomics all too commonplace. I kept looking for a better mouse trap, but alas none I looked at seemed worth my hard earned $$$.
Then the DeWalt DWHT20547 was born, going way beyond a superior hacksaw (aka:better mouse trap)! This 5 in 1 multi-purpose tool Excels at its primary job with Superior control, comfort and speed in cutting metal(all I every really wanted). The quick release and fine blade adjustment is a snap to set and allows for precise tensioning, giving me smoother, more accurate cuts. The smooth ergonomic grip of the main assembly is solid and very comfortable...No more hand cramping! But, it doesn't stop there. Dewalt has a few other quality features that are sure to come in handy.
Keeping with the 12" blade set, securing the blade to the "45 Degree Pins" assist in creating smooth flush cuts. Then, sliding the head off allows attachment of the 12" blade to the tip of main assembly, creating a "Low Profile Saw" for precise tight control. Also in this main profile configuration, the 12" blade can be secured into the main body head, creating a -short to long straight reach- "Tight Access" saw to meet minimal clearances. Finally, the removed head ergonomic grip will accept a short to long blade for "Jab Saw" rough cutout activity.
On top of all this, the main assembly head can hold an extra 12" blade and 4 other shorter blades for all kinds of projects. With all of these high performing feature sets in one lightweight tool, a reasonable asking price and a DeWalt Lifetime Warranty, guess I have another 35+ years of trouble free projects to tackle!!!

This Dewalt hacksaw is great. I haven't had a chance to configure it in more than the main configuration, however the blade is tight, easy to cut a straight accurate cut. easy to change blades. Good value for the money.

This is by far the best hacksaw I've ever owned. I'm glad I lost my previous one and replaced it with this one. The sturdy frame and foreward grip makes it very easy to control the saw while citting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndrewLD Nice options!
Works very well as both the hack and branch saw. You are getting 2 saws for the price of one. The release on the hack blade is poorly designed and the instructions are lacking. As for the material and functionality, it is excellent.
