Owned this for 5yrs. Used other models but this gets in between studs, cut at any angle and power. Used it in remodel , outside for fence,tree stumps. this is the most versatile saw.Far greater stability when in your hands because of the grip. love this saw.

I've had this saw for about 6 months and I really like it. The compact size makes it easy to fit into tight spaces and the multi position blade clamping mechanism is super handy.

I got this as a gift for Christmas last year. I work in construction and it’s perfect when you get in those tight spaces. Plenty of power. Very handy tool.

Bought it 3 weeks ago and it hold its own. I have been using to cut tree roots and the power delivered is tremendous. Too bad some one hasn't made a sawzall blade that performs like this electric saw.

Was a bit apprehensive but purchased it anyway. Glad I did
First of all, l happen to love Dewalt tools and I have a bunch of them. I am also a home hobbiest.

I didn't think twice about purchasing this until I happened to read the reviews. Needless to say, I was very surprised about all the negatives on this unit. How could Dewalt let me down like that? I bought it anyway and here are my observations:

I love the pistol grip and the design.

One reviewer wrote that the blade cut was not very accurate and he was right about that. The way the blade is designed to fit in the mechanism makes for some inaccuracies. This too me is not important, but for some, it could be a deal killer. I only experienced this with a long blade - will give more detail below.

Absolutely love the four position blade design. This works great.

I wish it had a variable speed knob instead of a variable speed trigger.

You can make flush cuts to the wall or floor very easily!

Now to the meat of this thing. Lots of reviewers stated the main shaft kept breaking and this made me quite nervous. I have used but never owned reciprocating saws before. It is my belief that those people who have used these before, may have really torqued down on it while in use (this is just my thought).

I had an old dryer drum that I cut in half using a 5 inch metal cutting blade. It was cutting so fast that I initially thought I was doing something wrong. This thing wants to work. It is heavy enough to just let the weight of the machine do the work. You don't have to force it.

Then I decided to put it through a fairly tough test and cut up an 18 inch Eucalyptus stump. This is hard wood and I used a 12 inch wood cutting blade. It took me about 10 to 15 minutes as I figured I could probably easily break the shaft. Even though I had to force it, I still didn't put on a lot of torque. I have seen people really push hard on these saws when they are being used. You cannot do that with this saw.

Only time will tell if this holds up, but I think if you are a bit gentle with it, it should last a very long time. The motor is powerful enough to do most anything you like.

This was a refurbished unit and maybe the replacement shaft is of a different design. Who knows.

Hope this helps.
