Partial to Dewalt with blade quick release !

DeWalt handsdown

1) Fixed shoe
2) Quick blade relaese
3) Repair center is close

WHAT? Dewalt?
Go with the original - Milwaukee Sawzall (they are the only ones that can even call it that - notice Dewalt calls it a reciprocating saw)

Milwalkee all the way on this tool. Crude but very tough. I've never worn one out, something else always gets them first (stolen,water, dropped).

Milwalkee and nothing less.

Considering this thread is almost a year old I'm sure he's got one already.
I will say the Porter Cable saws are real nice, and VERY tough.
Hard to choose between them or a Super Sawzall.

Dewalt.

Hey hatchet, do you only by Cresent brand adjustable end wrenches?

Teetorbilt 02-25-2005 03:09 PM

Buy Craftsman wrenches, lowest price with a lifetime warrantee. Not all chromey and slippery like others.

When your buying that sawzall look at the AMP rating.
I've got a Milwaukee rated at 11 AMPS and it's a "work-horse." They have got sawzall going at 6.5 amps but you are going to be missing out on preformance with one of them.

Best of luck, rredogg

Amp rating and stroke length. I just tried a Hilti and it was a new experience in sawsalling. Pretty pricey. HS.

IHI 02-23-2006 05:26 PM

Yep, I like my sawzall (reciprocating saw) to be like me...long strokes:p because no matter what they tell you, it does make a difference:)

I've always had great luck with my Dewalt's, gramps had a 4 amp milwaukee when that first came out and the thing would not die, 16 or 17yrs later it finally bit the dust, but was used almost daily mon-fri. I hated it since the stroke was soo short. He has since bought the Porter Cable tiger saw? I think it's called, very strong saw and smooth too. in 8 or 9 yrs when this newest dewalt finally give it up I may look into a porter cable, they produce some powerful SMOOTH saws in all shapes and sizes.

Give the Bosch a try
 
The RS15 is a brute of a saw. Best blade clamp in the world, bar none. One handed blade insertion, so you don't have to hold the thing open to put a blade in. Just push the blade in and it locks shut. Turn the collar to release and it ejects the blade.

Thats impossible the saw doesn't exsist.
