Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JackOh You get what you pay for on this one!
This is a typical DeWalt tool - well-built and functional. It's 5 saws in 1 although I use some configurations more than others. Comes with a hack blade and reciprocal blade. I've used it to cut PVC pipes, conduit, and threaded bar and the high tension provides straight cuts. This saw is expensive relative to other saws, but when you factor in that it's a 5-in-1, it's competitively priced. It's a bit heavier than your average hack saw, but comes with a Lifetime Warranty.
Hey DeWalt - we're not all geniuses, so please include instructions in the packaging. It took me a while to figure out how to transform the saw based on the pictures on the packaging. For those who don't want to figure it out on your own, type the model number into Youtube (the guys of "Tools In Action" were kind enough to provide video instructions with their review).
The reason I'm giving this 4 stars out of 5 are: (1) the lack of instructions and (2) the screw for the tight access configuration (aka, pad saw) was so tight (a bit 'soft' too) that the head stripped when I was trying to loosen it. I will contact DeWalt for a new screw.
Overall, a great saw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fasteddie The Dewalt three position hack saw
Needed this saw to cut an axel on a cart wheel. It solved the issue and demonstrated the quality of the product. Would have appreciated instructions as to how the blade is replaced, but I guess the manufacturing center didn't think it necessary, Somewhat disappointed that it was made in China.

For the woman who had almost every man-tool. This is one nifty piece of equipment. Just another fun toy to add to my tool box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenske Great ergonomics and versatility
The "5 in 1" concept is not a gimmick, it actually replaces at least 3 different hacksaws. Ergonomics are great, it has a thick, rubberized grip. The saw is easy to reconfigure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmill Your actually buying four saws!
This is by far the best hacksaw I have ever owned. Transition between the different configurations are quick and easy. You can see 8n my pictures how many ways this say can be uses, and it even comes with a wood and metal blade so you can get started right away. The saw is a bit heavy, but it's solid and built well. There is no bending of the blade or saw while sawing like others that I have had, and the blades last a good while. I hands down recommend this saw!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Dewalt 5 in 1 hacksaw is great
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.
