Item Description

This is the perfect recip saw for the home do-it-yourselfer. It’s priced attractively but doesn’t skimp on the features. For the price, we’re impressed with the 8.5 amp motor and variable speed, all the way from 0 to 2,400 strokes per minute–plenty for whatever your project needs. Also high on our list is the fact that it weighs only 6.8 pounds. If you’ve ever hefted one of the higher-end models, you’ll appreciate the light weight, especially noticeable when you’re cutting over your head and in other awkward positions. You’ll really be pleased with the tool-free blade-change system; it’s fast, easy and foolproof. When you’re cutting, you’ll notice that the ergonomic rubber grip and the cushioning on the front boot really cut vibration and improve your control. We can imagine putting this baby to use doing cutouts in drywall and studs for things like inset cabinets, cutting PVC for all kinds of projects–pipes during renovations, subfloors, joists, framing in a new door–you get the picture. A recip saw is one of the more versatile tools to have in your collection, and this one’s a great buy for the homeowner.–Kris Jensen-Van Heste
