Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by reciprocating saw DeWALT Found this product to be straight foreward and easy to operate,left or right handed.Could be balanced better.It was helpful on little jobs and confined spaces, and really shone on tree trimming. All tree trimmers should use this instead of bulky dangerous chain saws.All in all a good product! August 28, 2009
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eats batt. This saw has lots of power, chewed through everything with no problem, just have a few batteries on hand if you want to use if for a long time. It only lasted at full capacity for about 6 min. March 26, 2009
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 18v Reciprocating Saw Good power, easy to operate, uses standard blades. It uses batteries like nobody's business so keep several batteries around if you have a few hours worth of work lined up. November 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reciprocating saw Ordered this saw for use when electricity is unavailable. Works great an good battery life. October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lightweight and Easy To Use I have never operated a reciprocating saw before. Sure wish I'd bought one of these years ago and saved myself a lot of labor using only an axe, pick and handsaw. Works great for removing old tree roots and pruning bamboo. October 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beast of a tool!!!!! I don't know how anyone could break this tool. I've been using it for awhile and just this week I used it to cut 1 inch conduit sticking out of the ground and a piece of 1/2 inch rebar(solid steel) and it worked great. People do need to understand that some materials can't be forceed, just let the tool do it's job. You also need to use the proper blade for the material you're cutting. April 21, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful saw, but does drain batteries This is an extremely versatile tool and I use it all the time. Most recently I used it to help me chew through some very large roots in the way of a trenching project I'm working on. This saw is tough and works well in even the most extreme conditions (such as covered in mud from my trench!). It does eat batteries, so it would benefit you to have an extra battery on hand to sit on the charging station for quick swaps mid-project. Also, a very sharp blade will use FAR less power in the long run because the cuts will be so much faster. Keep a good stock of new blades handy and swap them as they dull. A dull blade does nothing but burn through whatever you're trying to cut and takes far longer to work than a new, sharp blade. I personally like the diablo blades for this saw. This saw is a bit heavy and using it overhead for any length of time will wear out your arm. But the weight is due to the fact that this thing is built like a tank! This is my go-to saw for any quick cuts in difficult to reach places. I've used this saw to cut through metal, wood, plastic and drywall and for both demolition and general construction. It continues to take beating after beating and still performs very well. Great Buy! January 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is great As with all DeWalt products it does exactly what the manufacturer says it will do, no muss no fuss. Great time-saving product. August 13, 2013
