The best reciprocating saw on the market
If I could give this six stars I would. Absolutely positively the very best reciprocating saw on the market. This specific model is perfect. It's a 20v tool and will increase output with a 60v. (60v works in all the tools but on some only offers longer run time) This model increses power with the 60v and run time. Let's talk just the 20v battery. It's the most powerful saw in it's class. No opinion. No assumption. Don't believe me watch for yourself on project farm. DeWalt was far and away #1 saw in his testing and that was with a 20v battery. If you need a reciprocating/sawzall this is the very best you can get.

    love this skill saw!!!
    I got this on a steal of a deal! got the 6ah and a 4ah 20v batteries and thus saw for 200$! I do home remodels, and have been slowly growing my tool set so I don't have to share with my buddy. this saw cuts like butter! one of my gavorite purchases! Haven't gotten the flexvolt battery yet, but I'd still reccomend this saw either way!

      Just one more Cut
      LED is worthless, I DIY evenings and with days getting shorter a LED light is needed. The LED doesn't project out, because of bevel rail is in the way while cutting 2x. Would suggest moving the light to brace handle thumb location to help light material.

        Awesome Upgrades!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like the new blade lock making it quick and easier to switch out/take off blades. Another great feature is the addition of the light, very helpful being in dark places and needing to make some cuts.

          Packs a punch!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This saw packs a lot of power within it. Strap on a big battery and get to work, there's things to saw. This tool has a really nice rubberized grip that makes handling it a breeze. It has your standard safety switch as well which will lock the trigger in place to make sure nobody has an accident when not intending to use it. Most saws come with a quick change blade system now, and this is no exception, it has an easy to use lever on the side that makes switching out blades fast and easy. The large lever paddle sits flush with the tool to give you peace of mind it wont be getting snagged on anything. The guide on this saw is nice and sturdy giving ample platform for guiding your cuts. Working around with this saw has been really fun, it almost feels like an extension of the arm when using it, since it does have some weight to it. It will definitely make you want to start another project just so you can use it again.

            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Doesn't matter if I'm breaking down pallets or chopping down 4"x4"'s this things got what it takes to make it happen. Fits good in the hands without feeling like I'm going to lose control. Very comfortable and powerful enough to get you through the job at hand!!

              A huge ADVANTAGE to 20v!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been waiting to test this Flexvolt Advantage Reciprocating Saw for awhile now. The ability to pull 60v power in a 20v tool is huge. More Power and more runtime when used with a 60v battery. This tool would be a great addition to everyone's power tool collection.

                POWERHOUSE! Great power!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] an amazing saw great noticeable difference in power when changing from 20v to 60 volt batteries, this saw is incredible. from cutting nails, to anything i cut down decent trees to little brush with a good wood blade. its seems like a sturdy construction, the quality is there and it feels nice weighted, if you don't have this and thinking of grabbing it, get it.

                  Technology built in
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I did not expect this saw to be this good .... to my surprise it was extremely easy to set up pull the yellow lever up marked with an lock on it insert the blade close lever . Simple enough right it gets better this saw tool has a dedicated lock on top of the handle this comes in handy especially if you have kids or are forgetful DEWALT has taken the worry out of simple task, I had some wood and metal in the backyard this saw handles all of those task without fatigue to the arms or hands it feels heavy initially when taking out of retail packaging but once you start to use it you forget the weight factor it cuts fast,did not overheat,very little vibration from the blade I only had to use of the 5 blades in my pack to get the job done.Hands down I believe this reciprocating SAW TOOL ONLY BATTERY NOT INCLUDED will pay for itself by your second job it was great to use oh yeah get a strong battery I have the FLEXVOLT 20v DEWALT battery with only 25% charge no lag no hesitation I’m truly surprised and the LED LIGHT on the top of the saw was a nice touch DEWALT thanks for considering customers in this pandemic and being affordable and reliable quality also ......

                    Great Saw, Missed some good Features
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Let me start by saying that this saw is a beast!!!! You can feel the quality of the tool by the weight (this baby is heavy), the metal chuck, and the smoothness. So if you are looking for a great quality saw, look no further in this reciprocating saw. Let's start with the pros- 1. Heavy, durable, robust tool 2. Very smooth action, when compared to my other reciprocating saws, the vibration is minimal on this tool. When using my DCS367 recip saw, I feel like my arms are going to fall off!!!! Compared to that one, this thing feels like there is no vibration at all 3. The ergonomic feel is very comfortable, and using this all day was not cumbersome. 4. Durability- this tool didn't take very high drops, but it did fall a handful of times from about 4 ft up to the ground off the joists, and no issues with use after each drop In short with the pros, if you need a durable robust reciprocating saw, this is the one to use. I used this for demo on some exterior joists and framing, and the smoothness of the action, and the durability makes this thing a great buy. 5. Honestly, this saw runs so smoothly, any battery that I tried in this thing except the standard 5 amp batt ran almost all day. The motor and internal workings must be crazy efficient Now why are there cons.....here is why 1. Unlike my Dewalt 20v XR DCS367 having a 4 way chuck, this only has the old school single chuck to hold the blade. I must say the I grew fond of having the ability to rotate the blade in all 4 directions depending what and where I was cutting 2. I really liked the shorter length of the DCS367 due to being able to fit between 16" O.C framing. Not a deal breaker, but made the function of the saw better for me For me this is a solid 4-star saw, only losing the perfect rating because of the cons that I prefer. If the 2 negatives are not a deal breaker for you, then you have a rock solid 5 star saw that is crazy durable, robust, and worth every penny!
