Answer: 
It's actually a 4 in 1. It transforms into 4 different configurations to allow certain ease and access. It is actually sitting on my table now as 2 seperate saws each with it's own handle. How great is that.

Answer: 
You can use the saw in 5 different configuratios (jab saw, 45 degree blade, long reach, high tension, low profile). I uploaded a picture of the packaging that explains it. I just used it to cut through a closet rod.

Answer: 
It changes into 5 different saws by removing/adjusting the blade and saw pieces. It's somewhat like a transformer saw that you can cut wood, metal, drywall, pvc etc... I have some picture posted on my review below to help show the different configurations.

Hard to tell and I can't find this info anywhere. In order to use as a jab saw, do you use the blades from the dewalt reciprocating saws?

12 in. 5-in-1 Hacksaw is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but too heavy to use. Check if the top part slides off before leaving the store. Comes with no Instructions on how to use it. Slightly heavy to use with prolonged use. I had to return mine for a different saw when I couldn't get the top part to slide off to use as a jabsaw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Versitile hacksaw Versatile hacksaw with more features than I even knew upon purchase. I have not been able to use other features but as a hacksaw, WONDERFUL! I love the adjustment of the blade tension. Allows a good solid and straight cut. You can feel the quality of build.

When I bought this I was impressed with all the different ways this saw could be used and felt it was worth the higher price to get the flexibility I might be able to use one day. The deadly flaw is there is no instruction sheet. I thought it came with one but I no longer have it. Searched their website and could find nothing. I seldom use the saw and most often it is in the normal mode so I do not even remember everything it can do. I called Customer Service and sat on hold forever. They claim there is no instruction sheet. They suggested I watch a video on youtube. Well if I am working on a project the last thing I want to do it watch a long video to get one question answered. I know how to read and find a manual or quick guide can generally explain something such as rotating a blade very quickly. This is the most stupid thing I have ever heard. Sure I understand a normal saw may not need a manual but this thing is complicated when you put it into all the different modes. So as of right now I have paid a premium for saw features I cannot use.
