Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garagewoodworker Strong and durable
Bought this in a kit with the radio and drill. The driver is compact strong and very durable. From screws to lag bolts this driver handles them all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bbyers Best thing since sliced bread
I originally purchased this tool in kit with the drill/ radio combo in December 2013 as I had used a buddy's previously and was initially impressed.. This tool is SUPER and has plenty of power to complete nearly all tasks asked. Have used to drive 3" screws in seasoned treated decks and new construction alike. You can go for a very long time on one charge. FYI--The bigger batteries really do last longer. Handle feels comfortable and no issues with function in 2 years. LED lights to shine on work area is very helpful if working inside. Have also used working on cars and compact size is great. So impressed with operation I have begun buying more in this line. Would like to see more individual tools and various kits available at the store. Big determining factor for me was the LSA and the interchangeable batteries. So far have not needed the LSA but piece of mind is well worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Apwillard1986 Great saw with usable power!
This saw is unique in my tool arsenal as it is the only tool that I bought independent of a project requiring it. I just wanted it and it has since proved itself to be invaluable. This saw is powerful and it is usable! I've used many reciprocating saws that where big, heavy, and intimidating. They make lots of noise and often vibrate things apart before they cut them apart. This saw is a winner because it is so usable. It stays where you put it and goes where you point it and makes quick work of anything in-between. You are going to want a high capacity battery to power it as it does use some juice but that is to be expected. All in all a great tool!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kellry2 Powerful aggressive Recip saw
I purchased this after returning the corded model. The corded couldn't hold a blade. This cordless not only holds the blade but cuts better and faster. I was shocked at how much better this saw finished the job that the corded saw started. Depending on the material you're cutting determines the battery life. Basic wood and nothing heavy the battery will last a good 30 minutes. Heavy material the battery is dead in 10. These are the 1.5 amp/hour batteries. If you need longer run time, then get the 2.0 or 4.0 Amp/hour batteries. This is an awesome powerful saw. You will not be disappointed with this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ashmccullough Tough enough
I'm hard on my drills. Drilling through block ,brick, concrete, metal. I'm the guy that pushes hard to get the job done. the only thing i get from the drill is that it wants more. It's great to have a tool that puts out as much a I give it. I've dropped it, kicked it, and put in battery after battery, working it as hard as i can. It doesn't overheat, it doesn't stop, doesn't drop the bits. It just keeps putting out. It sits great in my hand and is well balanced. It's not too heavy and it's got alot of torque. I enjoy the hammer option, drill option and screw option. All in all, this is a great drill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mvcforufc This saw is light and durable.
Got this saw for Christmas last year and have used it many many times. We build haunted houses all year round for charities, and this saw gets a tough workout every day. It is light weight and very durable. I got the large battery and would recommend it to anyone considering buying this saw, the saw is very powerful and needs a battery that will last. I have cut through just about everything this saw should be able to handle with no problems at all. Love this saw!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer I like the idea of Rigid giving a lifetime warranty and would like to see a combination of the drill, circular saw and reciprocating saw.
It is such a common kit assembly, it does not have as much appeal as it could if they had offered something different from every other small tool kit. I would buy if it had the circular saw and the reciprocating saw and then one of the other drivers. What about it, Home Depot?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alumidude lightweight and powerful
I finally broke down and brought this saw to install new double entry way doors and was extremely happy.I't took about two minutes to cut through the existing nails and screws they had holding this door in, and the door was out in no time. Great investment.I felt like a kid in a candy store. Great product!!!!!
