You're not going to get any sawzall to cut straight. I use this for demolition of any metal, wood. If you want precision, better off with another piece.

Great little tool. Does a good job in tight spaces and genuinely cuts well. But it will vibrate and shake the crap out of your arms much more than a larger sawzall would. I am satisfied with my purchase.

I own several different 18 V saws all ‘s. I don’t know if it’s the fact that it’s a Dewalt or the fact that it’s 20 V but this thing is very impressive. I really like the LED. It makes finding cut marks or fine lines Really easy. Also, if you’re an electrician and you’re constantly using these things one-handed it’s nice to have the full size brushless motor in the smaller form factor so that you can get your trigger hand closer to your work peace. Much better control.
