My girlfriend loves it. I've tried to teach her how to use various tools, and she always goes for this one.

CJ---If you have a working saws all, you will find it very handy and soon wonder how you ever got by with one---

However, You are absolutely right---there are other ways to cut wood--

I do not own a cordless one yet----I do see the use of one--but my tool budget is limited so I only buy what I really need.

Every tool has to pay for itself in time saved on a job-----
I have several corded Saws Alls--the time dragging cords is not enough to justify the cost of a good cordless Saws All to me---Yet---Mike----

Cordless is certainly easier to tout around but this type of saw does burn through the juice quite quickly.

If you are planning on using it for any extended period of time, have back up batteries or go corded.

Sounds kinda foolish if you haven't even found use for this one.

My corded reciprocating saws haven't been out of the case in a couple years. The cordless does everything I have ever asked of it. I don't find it to use a battery any faster than a cordless drill. If you use either hard they can go through a battery quick, but most of the time a cut here and there is what I need. If heavy cutting is required I have several packs and a couple chargers, I just pop on another pack and go for more.

In the first post he said that the blade holder is broken---a gift I am guessing---so he has never been able to use it.--M---
