    After a lengthy search of reciprocating saws I choose the following DeWalt model: DEWALT DCS380P1 20V MAX Lithium Ion Reciprocating Saw Kit I gave this unit a 5 star rating after using it for several days around our acreage cleaning up old brush, trimming trees, etc. While the unit is fairly heavy, it is obviously well built and durable. I purchased some “pruning blades” at Lowe’s and when installed on this unit, it literally cut like a knife through butter without exerting tons of down force. If it’s not, it means you have a dull or bent blade and you should change it out.I put about eight total hours of sawing action on this unit and it never flinched. Only changed and charged the battery once. It only comes with one battery so if you want to cut non-stop, I suggest you get a second battery:  GERIT– Dewalt 20V 4.0Ah Max Premium XR Li-Ion Replacement Battery for DCB180 DCD985B DCB205 DCD771C2 DCB204 DCS355D1 DCD790B DCB200 My wife used the unit pruning back some bushes and I doubt she will ever go back to clippers. That said, this unit is heavy but not intolerable to use. I love the feel of a well made, durable product. I highly recommend!

    Very powerful for battery operated. Have used the saw to remove very large tree roots from our yard. Tops of these roots have risen above ground level and inhibits mowing. Found some really rugged and tough blades and this saw easily goes right through the roots, allowing one to then pop sections of the root out. The battery (came with the saw) will run for a roughly about 30 minutes of continuous heavy sawing before needing recharging. When doing work such as this a second battery makes sense (even though very expensive). One can charge one battery while using the other….batteries will mostly charge in that 30 minute window. Be aware, however, this saw is quite heavy and could be a monster to use for anyone that is lacking in strength>>>this thing can generate a modest amount of vibration with certain cuttings and is not a toy.

    I’ve used this for so many different things already – its an awesome tool. Good and strong for a battery powered unit. The one weakness is the battery life is a little short with my standard batteries that I have (probably just need to buy a larger capacity battery). I like that the head allows for mounting blades in multiple angles – and the quick connect feels really solid while still allowing me to change blades quickly.

  4. Richard S.

    This is my first cordless sawzall. Very pleased with it. The only problem is battery life. Really should have two battery’s if your going to use it a lot. As I found out, if your using it for some serious cutting, the battery will last about an hour or so. I was cutting 4×6’s for a ramp and wasn’t able to finish the job with out recharging the battery. Other than that, very powerful and capable of handling hard jobs. Really wish it wasn’t so expensive for another battery. That is the only down fall of this tool. It should be sold with two battery’s

    This is a rugged, well made tool, with excellent features. I use it with the 5mA batteries, and it lasts through several hours of work. Being able to place the blade at several angles in the holder is very useful. It is certainly NOT as powerful or rugged as my previous Milwaukee corded model, but it gets the job done and is far more convenient.

    After doing a ton of research on several 18V reciprocating saws, I stumbled across this 20V Dewalt DCS380P1 saw kit. My 64 year old right elbow gave out (tennis elbow) after using hand saws exclusively to cut down Brazilian Pepper trees in the wetlands surrounding our Southwest Florida home. I haven’t used any of my chain saws because the vegetation is so dense, and the footing so uncertain, that I didn’t want to chance having an accident with such a powerful tool. Lots of things can go wrong with a chain saw when used in tight quarters so I decided to be safe rather than sorry.Even though I read some raving reviews about how good this saw kit is, I decided to order two additional 20V batteries so that I would have plenty of power to get a lot done before running out of juice. I also ordered a 5 pack of highly rated pruning saw blades in order to have the best set-up possible. On with the gloves, boots, long shirt, work pants, sunscreen, insect repellent and UV hat, and then I started to cut my latest path into the wetlands.First off, let me say that this saw is well-designed and balanced, and a real pleasure to use. I made cuts at ground level, waist level, and above my head. I cut pepper trees and limbs down that ranged in diameter from 2″ to 10″, all of them much more quickly and easily than with my high-end hand saws. There was no strain on my arms and I always felt stable and confident. This is one lean, mean cutting machine! But the biggest surprise was the battery. The last battery powered tool I owned was a standard power drill that maybe worked for about 10 minutes before losing its charge. Because of that I really wasn’t expecting the charge to last very long with this saw.But boy, was I surprised! This thing just kept on cutting. I would have to pause on occasion to move some of the limbs I cut down and I was constantly picking up all the debris deposited in our wetlands from Hurricane Charley in 2004, but I had to force myself to keep working until at least the first battery gave it up. It is very obvious that battery technology has expanded by leaps and bounds, helped no doubt by the development of more efficient batteries for cars.I wish that I had investigated buying one of these saws about six months ago. The wear and tear that I would have avoided on this worn out body would have been greatly appreciated. It only goes to show that there is always a right tool for each job–you just have to find out what it is.

    This saw is more powerful, lighter in weight, and far more versatile than previous generations of the Dewalt line of Sawzalls. I owned the 18 volt old school version and it was alright. Still had lots of power. But this thing is a beast. Buy quality blades and you will not even have to own a chainsaw if you live in a residential neighborhood. I took down 10″ wide trees and sawed them into sections, cut up thick brush, and still had life on the battery. Buying the P1 kit is well worth the money. You get the 5Ah battery and a charger that handles the 12v and 20v max batteries. Most solid cordless tool I’ve owned to date. And I’ve been in the skilled trades and construction industry for 20 years almost.Tip: These saws only cut as well as what blades you put into them. Use name brand blades meant for the task they are labelled for. Long pruning blades for cutting trees and bushes, arched thick metal blades for cutting any kind of metal. Lenox and Bosch make the best blades on the market in my opinion.

    Although not quite as powerful as a chain saw, I decided to get this instead and avoid the storing of stinking gasoline and mixing of 2 cyl. oil. Glad I did, man up when you use this baby, guys. I’ve gone through 6″ tree limbs and maybe a little bigger. Like I say, not as powerful or fast as the same size chain saw, but, no stinking or mixing of fuel, no smoke or fire hazard, and no sharpening of chains. Re-charging a battery and replacing a blade much more convenient. Replaced my gas powered hedge trimmer with a DeWalt trimmer also, – no more gas for me.

    Now I own another great Dewalt tool. I purchased this to level 4 stumps in my yard and it is working great so far….I’ve got 2 of them done. Stumps are 3 inch diameter, 5 inch diameter and then two 10 inch stumps. I got the 2 smaller ones done and am working on the other 2 … still on the one battery charge.I love how I can put the blade into the saw in 4 different directions instead of just one or two because it made it so much easier to get close to the ground. And it isn’t too heavy for this 62 year old woman

    I am not mechanically inclined and I don’t have a lot of upper body strength in my opinion. I purchased this item on the recommendations of guys I worked with. I need something that can cut through some pretty hard wood in my yard which according to my brothers is not the typical use for this type of saw. For me this worked great! It cut through the salt bushes (virtually impossible to kill weeds) like butter and trees too. The saw is not very heavy and the battery lasts a long time. Much longer than a cordless chainsaw I purchased several years ago. Additionally if I buy more Dewalt cordless tools the battery is interchangeable which I really like the idea of. I have several cordless tools and their batteries are not interchangeable although they all look alike to me. I did need my son to show me how to put the blade in because I wasn’t grasping the directions. Again, I’m not mechanically inclined by any stretch of the imagination. This saw is lightweight and powerful but not hard to handle. Definitely a great purchase for me!
