Customer Questions & Answers

is the battery and charger included?

Asked by: christy
LOL at HD associate response. Battery and charger are not included due to this being a "power" tool you plug in, not a cordless tool.

15 Amp AVT Reciprocating Saw is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets. I own this saw and the Milwaukee 15 amp super Sawzall. Both of them are absolute beasts. Comparing the 2, the Makita has less vibration and has a larger, metal case. Milwaukee cuts slightly faster in orbital mode, but vibrates more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big disappointment I am a teacher that teaches a high school auto shop class. This saw is mostly used for cutting plastic and metal. It's light, and is powerful (1.8 horsepower). It's also reliable, EXCEPT that the shoe button easily falls out of the shoe release lever. This is what I consider to be a deal breaker. The pin holds the guard on the front of the saw. So, since you need the guard, you need to have the pin and the button. In their proper places. And working. The shoe release button is made of plastic. Plastic can be very robust, wear-resistant, and abrasion-resistant, but this one flexes easily, or breaks easily, and out drops the shoe. Where did the pin go? If you work outside, and do pruning or related work, or as I do, in dirty environments with (say) motor oil and grease everywhere, you will have LOTS of trouble finding the button and pin. Good luck ordering replacements. Most part stores are out of stock. Guess why? Probably because lots of people are having this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very strong, efficient, cuts iron like butter I use this daily for hours a day, it's a very strong saw. Nothing compares, no battery or power saw comes close to the speed and strength of this saw. I highly recommend it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Only bad thing about this tool is that it don't come with not even one blade. But other then that it works as it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very powerful and feature-packed tool This is one very powerful tool. It will destroy anything! Overall, this is an excellent saw. The variable speed is a very useful feature as it allows to use the saw in less demanding applications. Otherwise, any user would find it to be too powerful. The saw feels a bit heavy at the beginning but once you start using it, it does not feel as much. I did not feel any vibration so the AVT feature must really work. The blade changing is bit difficult as you have to apply a good degree of force to remove/replace the blade. Metal case is sturdy and professional looking. But a plastic case would have probably been a better choice as the metal one could get banged and dented. It's not a cheap saw but you do get what you pay for. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best recip saw i have used Good saw, rips through anything. You need this saw if you are doing renos. Quick release blade mechanism is nice and works well until it rusts. When mine locked up I just sprayed it with some silicone (WD-40 works too) and it freed up immediately. It’s a bit heavy but I cant complain. If you don’t want vibration, go with the AVT. Because theres no vibration it cuts much faster than a normal recip saw and its easier to be accurate with your cuts too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Reciprocating saw on the market I'm a contractor and have used almost all reciprocating saws. If you want the best this is it. This saw cuts extremely fast without beating you to death in the process
