Our Conclusion ?

Once again we think that Dewalt has come through on this power tool.

Most of the complaints that we and others have had are due to the duration of the batteries.

Considering this is an 18v power pack I don't think it is that big a factor.

Reciprocating saws really consume power...considering the job they do...we aren't going to hold that one against them.

We are going to give this Dewalt cordless reciprocating saw an over all thumbs up.
