R3030 Mini Reciprocating Saw Review
The Ridgid Fuego Sawzall R3030 mini reciprocating saw is good for speeding up handsaw tasks but is too powerful and fast-cutting for really precise work but performs tasks that exhaust many other corless saws such as sawing easily through nail-embeded framing and 3/4-in. subflooring
This corded saw is a little too jumpy for low-resistance work like cutting drywall, but if you lean on it to do the work of a bigger saw, the power is available. The wire cage around the nose of the saw doesn’t block the view of the blade, yet I wish there were more than a wire cage as the barrier between me and the saw’s armature. The work light is the best of the group, and blade changes are standard. This 4-lb. saw might be designed for one-handed use, but it’s powerful enough that I almost always kept a second hand on the front, which left me wishing for a second grip.
