    Great reciprocating saw for the smaller jobs…., December 7, 2005

    DeWalt has another cordless winner here. Plenty of power. I have a corded Mikita saw that I have used for years and its great for the big, intensive use jobs. I wanted something for the smaller jobs that was cordless and not have to drag around an extension cord… quick out; quick to put away. I have a mix of corded power tool brands but settled on DeWalt for my cordless needs. I have half-dozen 18v XRP’s and a couple of chargers through past purchases.

    If you are in a similar situation with extra batteries and chargers…
    Maxtools.com sells the ‘BARE TOOL’ at a fair price (no batteries/charger are included). Amazon should stock the bare tools. The saw was $99 and comes with a 6″ combo blade so that you can test the saw.

    Be warned, my saw took almost 3 weeks to arrive, but, hey, the price is right for a DeWalt and the saw arrived without damage. However there was no owners manual which I thought was an odd oversight. But a few minutes fiddling with the front end and the blade change was figured out… lift the tab on the front right side of the saw all the way up and remove/install a blade. The button at the left front allows the ‘shoe’ at the front of the saw to extend/retract and lock in several positions. (If you are wondering about the moveable ‘shoe’, it allows for some depth-of-cut control vis-a-vis the length of your saw blade when needed for certain applications.) As for the rest, I don’t need a manual to show me how to pull a trigger or change a battery. I am a huge fan of the 4-way blade clamp set up. There is a vertical and horizontal blade clamp incorporated into one head. Blade change is a snap and you can set the blade teeth to point up, down, right or left. The versatility of this feature is great! Gone are the days of contortions to cut sideways.
