    Q:Can it cut through thick rusted lugnuts on a boat trailer wheel?
    by|Nov 9, 2021
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello Cutter Thank you for your contact. We apologize for any trouble or inconvenience in finding information. It would depended on the thickness of the bolts as well as the metal used. The saw can be used to cut both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Your saw has different metal cutting capacities depending upon type of blade used and the metal to be cut. Use a finer blade for ferrous metals and a coarse blade for non-ferrous materials. In thin gauge sheet metals it is best to clamp wood to both sides of sheet. This will insure a clean cut without excess vibration or tearing of metal. Best Regards Sherri C DEWALT

          Saw died on first use!
          Just opened the box, absolutely brand new saw, went to make my very first cut on a 2x4 and literally within 30 seconds - smoke came out of the motor and it stopped running. Now when you press the trigger all it does is make a buzzing sound. BRAND NEW and saw is DOA!
          by
            DOA within the first 30 seconds of use
            I got this saw right out of the box brand new, started cutting a 2x4 and it literally didn't get through the first cut before burning out. Smoke came out of the motor and now all it does is make a buzzing sound when you hit the trigger. I paid a premium for this saw expecting a premium product in return. Now I have to drive 45 minutes away to try to return it. Really DeWalt?

              Used to trim Pindo palm and Magnolia tree. Worked great. The ability to change the orientation of the blade was especially beneficial. Very happy with this purchase.

              Love this saw!
              I’ve tried multiple reciprocating saws for our farm and this one really impressed me. Combined a with a great set of dewalt blades I have easily cut any wood, pvc or metal I’ve come across in record time.

                MORE COMPACT THAN MY PREVIOUS DEWALT RECIPROCATING
                I liked the more compact size. It makes it easier to cut exactly where you want with less vibration. It's a little heavier than I thought it would be, but overall, I'm pleased.

                  Excellent recip saw
                  First used this saw with a Spyder wire brush attachment to clean foundation flakes before refinishing. It performed very well for over an hour to do this job. Also, I love the variable speed feature! All that at a great price and its ability to use the blade ifn4 different positions is an excellent feature..... Love it!
