Great sawzall
Had this saw for over a year and use it pretty frequently and it has handled every task I have asked it to. From breaking various metal/wood things down to trimming the ends of heart pine beams which is a real torture test this saw has been great.

Good but missing a couple of features.
I own a cordless saw (from other manufacturer) and was not interested in owning a corded saw until last month that I was working on a project and needed to make several demolition cuts of pressured treated 6 x 8”. I was only doing 1 cut per battery charge so decided to purchase this corded model because it had good reviews and price was close to $100.
This thing performed really well. I made around 90 cuts of 6 x 8” PT wood paired with Diablo blades. It has plenty of power and I like that you can change the blade orientation so it allow you to do almost flush cuts.
This saw is missing 2 features that would be nice to have:
1. Blade adjustment to save on blades
2. Oscillating motion for faster cuts.
Overall I think is a good value and the tool feels like it will last a long time.

great features, smooth running
I've had this awhile and not used it ,so one day I needed one and I picked it up and used it. I've used others but this one was the smoothest running I've ever used. cuts good and has different positions for the blade.

A good value
I heat with wood and am self-sufficient in that on with my rural acre. I have cordless units for where extension cords don't reach but consider it poor economy to use them where they do (batteries wear out. For several years my only corded unit was a 6A unit from another manufacturer. It was a good saw but finally froze up and likely isn't worth repairing. Sure is nice to slice with twice the power--saves not only time but wear and tear on my back.

Not to mention, I paid the same price for them!

I haven't had it long so I have not rated durability, but given warranty, reviews, and brand reputation I expect it will last longer than I do.

Yes, it's heavy. So are tanks. For what I do with it that is actually advantageous.

Does this saw come with blades?
Kathy on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't. But credit DeWalt for selling you a quality tool, not hyping the package with a couple of cheapo blades.

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.
