Good Value
It's a hefty tool but the weight is well balanced. It's by far the heaviest 18v Dealt tool I own but I'm very happy with it. I've been committed to the 18v family since 1999 and haven't regretted it. Most other carpenters in my industry have the same 18v system so it's easy to share on the job site.

We're pretty tough on the gear and it's held up well.

You're only other option would be a corded saw but that may not be practical for your application. When doing Demo cords can be a drag and slow you down.

Great cordless tool.
I first used this product when I was on a kitchen remodel and the electrician had the power off so I couldn't use my corded sawsall. I borrowed the electricians DeWalt cordless and I was sold!

Very Handy, Well made
This was a replacement of a DeWalt cordless reciprocating saw that I bought 15 yrs ago on a junk table that finally broke. Tool is a bit heavier than older saw but works great. Really like the tool-less blade change feature. Read the other reviews about short battery life, What are you trying to cut a giant redwood of CA? Battery life seems reasonable if use proper blade and remember it is a battery tool, keep an extra battery charged and go for it. Used the old saw in the heat and air business as well as on the farm held up very well until case broke probably after something got dropped on it in the back of the truck. Best feature of all 18V DeWalt tools is the interchangeability of batteries both new and old style work on all tools.

Awesome saw
I bought this tool because I have a very old corded sawzall. It has problems staying on and I have a demo job coming up. I purchased this saw because I purchased a XRP impact driver last year, with 2 batteries. This is my only xrp system. Now I can get more use out of the batteries. Saw has a no tools needed feature for changing the blades awesome feature. Tons of power, I cut through cab grade oak plywood like it was butter. Highly recommended

This tool is essential when doing any home remodel and demolition. The cordless reciprocating saw makes getting to any project fast and easy. No looking for an outlet or an extension cord long enough to get to where you are working. Highly recommend this tool to anyone.

Will an 18v DC9098 battery work with this saw?
Jerry in michigan on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will. All Dewalt 18V tools are compatible with both the 18V Lithium Ion Batteries and the 18V NiCad batteries.
The NiCad batteries require the NiCad charger (the black one.)
The Lithium Ion batteries require the Lithium Ion charger (the yellow one.) These chargers are Faster to Charge and will work with both Lithium Ion and NiCad batteries.
Also, there is an adapter available so you can run your 18V tools with the 20V batteries.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
