Overview

Editor's Review: Reciprocating-Saw Showdown

review date: October 1, 2005

This saw easily won our speed-control and trigger-action test. It has a large dial mounted on top of the saw that quickly changes the cutting action between straight and orbital. The twist collar used to lock the blade takes more effort to turn than others, but the result is a tight fit with no slop. The engineering for the adjustable shoe on this saw should be a model for all other saws. This is the only saw tested that has a safety on the trigger, which we found annoying.
