Overview

Editor's Review: Reciprocating-Saw Showdown

review date: October 1, 2005

Although they are similar in most ways, the 304PK stands out from DeWalt's other saws we tested--the 307MK and the 309K--because it offers the choice of mounting the blade at 90 degrees for flush-cut applications. It is among the quietest saws we tested, and it is not too heavy or bulky. An external cam lever makes changing blades a snap. The area for gripping the front nosepiece gets too hot to handle after only a minute's worth of heavy use, so gloves are essential if the saw will be used for an extended period of time.
