Reciprocating Saw

For certain specialty jobs it sure paid off the last two years.
First, I had to cut every third wooden ballistre before doing a paint job on a wooden deck two summers ago. Sure saved time and money I would have paid to have it done. Paid for the reciprocating saw on that one job.

Then I started cutting branches of some decorative trees (yearly) on the property. Sure beat a chainsaw.
Even cut down a 5 inch thick dead tree for some showing off.

Bought one when I started to fix the house. Comes in handy. Daughter likes to use it to cut branches for the fire pit.

Useful for home projects, I also use mine to process deer, way faster than a hand saw. Very versatile power tool.

Kudos on not calling it a "Saws all"

Hunting hobby ended, now I'm a fly fisherman!

Great for splitting a deer carcass in half.

Re: Reciprocating Saw

With both wood-cutting and metal-cutting blades and rechargeable batteries, there isn't much small cutting that you can't do with one!

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Re: Reciprocating Saw

I really like them but I have to disagree with pruning. If I cannot get it done with hand pruners I like the chainsaw first then the reciprocating saw second.

Re: Reciprocating Saw

LOVE our cordless one...LOVE IT.

It is in my truck all the time...take various blades. Use metal blade for deer processing, woodblade for cutting saplings when making/widening access access trails, just use it to fresh cut the stump of the Christmas tree, work on camp projects...LOVE IT!!
