Smooth and balanced
I bought this over the past summer to replace a very economy priced house brand reciprocating saw that I had before and that one worked as well as the lowest price $39.99 reciprocating saw would be expected to work. This is a night and day difference. Sorry, I don’t have any stories about demolishing a house with this. I actually got it to make trimming shrubs easier. Being able to turn the blade in any of four directions makes getting into tough spots easy. Plus, the multi position blade clamp allows for the balance to be maintained better than turning the whole saw to get into a different angle.

Found in Woods
About 5 or 6 years ago I was cleaning along the side of a road for a school community service project, and found a corded DeWalt reciprocating saw sitting in the woods off the side of the road. I was very confused as to how it got there, but I picked it up and brought it home. I plugged it in and it worked perfect, I went to Lowe's and bought a set of blades, and I still use that saw to this day. I am very impressed with the tools power, and the fact that it still worked after probably sitting in the woods for a couple days or who knows how long.

I've had this awhile and not used it ,so one day I needed one and I picked it up and used it. I've used others but this one was the smoothest running I've ever used. cuts good and has different positions for the blade.

Does this saw come with blades?
Kathy on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't. But credit DeWalt for selling you a quality tool, not hyping the package with a couple of cheapo blades.
Does this saw come with a carrying case?
