I bought this saw for a remodel job I was doing on an apartment. It did okay at cutting the first plaster wall open, but was a bit hot when done, and the wall wasn't big at all. Second day, second wall, the saw made it half-way through the job before the blade holder failed. The nifty spring-loaded mechanism that holds the blade in multiple positions (a feature I loved when it was working) had loaded up with dust and debris and jammed open. No amount of blowing the dust out or cycling the mechanism freed up the movement. The saw was returned 72 hours after purchase. If DeWalt could find a way to make that device able to withstand the environment a recip. saw is in, it would be a gem. But as is, a turd.
