Craftsman Reciprocating Saw

Tackling The Toughest Demo Projects Around

Having a Craftsman reciprocating saw as part of your power tool inventory is a must these days.

No one really likes to have to use one of these types of power tools because of the nature of the work that is associated with it....Demolition!

The reciprocating saw, or "sawzall" as it is sometimes referred to, can be a rough piece of equipment to operate.Craftsman Reciprocating Saw

There is a lot of vibration at the very least and it can be a little dangerous if you don't respect this tool.

It is however an indispensable power tool when you do need it.

Nothing rips through wood, metal, drywall and any other sort of debris like a reciprocating saw.

  • Affordable
  • Plenty of power
  • Easy to handle
  • Quick and easy tool-less blade changing
  • LED worklight
  • Trigger safety switch is cumbersome and hard to reach

My Conclusion

This reciprocating saw is a good buy for the price. It will cut through just about anything you can throw at it.

Keep in mind that it is a cordless power tool and eventually it will lose battery strength. If you use it for intermittant cuts it will more than do the job.

If your looking for something with hours of constant power you may want to look into a corded reciprocating saw from Craftsman instead.

I use this Craftsman sawzall a lot and it has never let me down yet.
