The blade that comes with the reciprocating saw will cut wood and PVC no prob. I cut 4X4s and more with it. Recently I had to cut a stainless steel pipe and it did absolutely nothing. I bought a 3$ blade for cutting metal and it chewed through the pipe in about 3 seconds.

The small lithium battery that comes with some of the tools may seem like a ripoff, but it's actually much lighter and I love using it on my power drill, makes it easier to use, but yeah it doesn't have the same lifespan. For my uses, it's still plenty.

I recently added the 10in one + saw and I love it. By no means is it for heavy tree-felling or large logs, but for taking down branches, shrubs and small trees it is perfect. I recommend the p108 high capacity lithium+ battery with it and any of the saws as it lasts much longer and improves performance. I've yet to have it die mid task yet and I have used it with the chainsaw extensively.

Last weekend I bought one of their weed trimmers. The wife loves it- I do too
One problem though, the battery is bad. It won't charge any more. Started with a full charge, then a couple more times- now nothing. I'm going to see if HD will swap me batteries

That's the downside to lithium ion. Most work fine and their performance is great, but bad ones tend to just be all out bad and there's usually nothing you can do to "resurrect" them.

The one that came with the weed eater is the P105- never used this model before.
HD did exchange battery and charger for me- they opened a new weed trimmer box and pulled out the new ones. Mine probably went back in the box and on the shelf for some other poor guy....
