What a great tool
Just can’t live without this tool on the job we fight for who will have it to work with.

Holy mother of power
I’ve had this for about a year, after contemplating spending the extra cash for the Flexvolt version. I am glad I did. The 20v max batteries are great, but the 60v Flexvolt lasts FOR-E-VER. The power is unmatched and the reliability is second to none. The saw itself is very comfortable to handle and considering how fast the blade reciprocates, vibrating is minimal. If your on the fence about spending a little more, I guarantee it’ll be worth it in the long end.

This could have been DeWalt's best reciprocating saw EVER, but they skimped in the engineering & design. Instead of evolving, this model devolves: 1)It's a longer design than the DCS387 (17.72" vs. 14.5"). 2) It lacks a 4-Position Blade Clamp. 3)It lacks a Telescoping Shoe. If someone offered me a free upgrade to this model, I'd stick with my DCS 387...

A little one the heavy side but what would you expect from something this heavy duty!? The weight definitely helps keep the vibration to a minimum. I’ll take this saw any day over my 20volt reciprocating saw.

This is just what I ordered. It arrived on time. It is a comfortable saw to use. I will need to acquire more of the new 60 volt batteries.

Good overall
I've burnt out a few 20v versions with moderate use and haven't yet this one. Not much more you can say about this tool , it either works or it dont , and this does its job.

Cutting Cast Iron Pipe
I had a cast iron drain pipe(sanitary tee connection corrode and begin to leak inside a wall. I cut out the portion of the wall, and needed to cut above and below the damaged section of the pipe, as well as the horizontal section, which was a relatively tight space. I purchased a separate carbide blade meant for cast iron. It cut through the pipe as easy as it would cut through wood. The .saw was easy to handle, so the cut was straight, which was essential for replacing it with a new piece of pipe.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
