    I bought this saw to cut up a hot tub that died on me. I really didn’t want to take it to the dump so I figured if I bought a recip saw I would be able to cut into smaller pieces and put it in my regular garbage can and send it on its way over a couple of weeks time. When I opened the box it came in it looked very sturdy and we’ll made. I love the ease of being able to change the blades so quickly and easily. Also being able to aim the blades in 4 different directions is really nice. Being that it’s a 12 amp saw it is able to work at a good pace for quite awhile without getting over heated. When I cut apart my old hot tub it tore threw it very easily without any hesitation. It has rubber iKey areas for you to grasp on to when cutting. I will use it to cut down some dead abravitive shrubs tomororw. That shouldnt pose any problems for the Dewalt Recip saw. So far I love the saw and plan on using it on any and everthing around my house. Pick yourself up one and make your life easier. 😉

    This thing made my top 3 tools list behind my John Deere tractor and my power washer! I cut apart an entire Infinity G35 using only 5 blades for a Vaydor car conversion kit. (for more pics go to: @carolina.vaydor on instagram)

    A previous owner of my house installed a large built in refrigerator and then remodeled the kitchen around it. The refrigerator failed for the 10th time and would not fit out any doors or windows and weighed almost 700 lbs. I had a HVAC tech remove the Freon. Then I cut the steel refrigerator in half using this saw. It went through like butter! I used a demo blade and it didn’t even slow down. Very impressed with how tough and rugged this saw is.


    The new home I just purchased used to be a very cheaply remodeled rental. What I found in this house was one step below painfully icky contractors grade material. To that end the closets had hanger rods that were literally pulling out of the walls with the slightest use. That’s right hang up a few leather jackets and watch them drop to the floor along with the clothes rods. It was that bad.So I wanted the new closet system rods to be anchored into the wall studs with solid hard wood. To accomplish this I had to open up the walls to reveal the studs so the wood braces could be installed. Using this DEWALT DWE305 12 Amp Corded Reciprocating Saw made doing so a breeze. This saw cut through dry wall like it was butter. I needed dust protection but the cuts were straight and effortless. The tool did most of the work I guide input guidance.I like corded versions of tools because I don’t like recharging batteries and the mostly expensive issues they bring. I am not at a job site without electricity so the battery power option is not something I must consider. The blades were sharp and install easily without a fuss. I took a star of for maneuverability because a rechargeable tool free of the code gives more range of motion. This is not a flaw just a fact so the missing star does not affect my overall rating. This is an easy five star review.

    Our 59 year old small fixer upper needed work to make it more functional And updated. The Dewalt sawzall was a necessity for this big DIY project. We got rid of a dusty old shelf By cutting into the wall to the garage and installing a pantry. (See pics)We pruned our trees with it, we cut old metal pipes, cut old floors. You name it, we cut into it. It was easy to use too. Just turn it on and cut. Two years later our renovation project is done and the sawzall was a champ. There were times I was sure it would break due to the pressure or difficulty of the job but it never did. I would buy this again and again.I’m a woman and while the sawzall wasn’t the lightest tool I’ve ever used, it was definitely light enough that I could use it throughout day.

    Was planning to buy a much more expensive chainsaw for pruning/trimming but was recommended this tool instead. This was a much general multipurpose tool for general projects and demolition around the house, with a great selection of inexpensive blades for every need. While this is an electric tool, it’s very powerful and had no trouble cutting through 4×4 pressure-treated wood, and a quick blade swap made short work of tree pruning. It’s worth noting that the blades are very easy to replace and adjust, and can be affixed horizontally or vertically to meet various requirements. The tool itself feels sturdily built but isn’t terribly heavy, though this does mean the user needs to be careful to maintain control at all times (common sense, but I feel that it’s worth recognizing). Safety gear (gloves and goggles) are a must as this tool will throw some chips/dust around, but it tends to feed downward so this is typically at a minimum. Overall, an incredibly useful tool for the price and I have very few complaints.

  7. Jim/Channell

    For the price of one more replacement battery for the stupid cordless saw, this thing gives an infinitely better experience. More power, quieter, easier to change blades, etc.The blade retention mechanism is actually really great. The release is very easy to work and blades latch really easily compared to earlier DeWalt saws of this type. No more wrestling matches and beating up your fingers trying to pry the release up. The initial movement to get your fingers under the blade release is easy, and about halfway through the stroke the effort increases as you actually release the blade. You can mount the blade for different directions and it’s no harder than just changing the blade, takes 5 seconds.As far as cutting ability, blows through metal and wood really quickly, no seizing, no problems of any sort.

    I put this reciprocating saw to work as soon as I got it. I went with the corded version because, with this type of tool, you want maximum power! DeWalt’s version delivers it!(DeWalt’s cordless version is great too if you need to go where there’s no electricity. However, research your battery life!)Two notes:First, this is JUST the saw. You must order the blades separately.Second, this is JUST the saw. You must order a case separately. The first case I ordered was 17.5 inches in length. It did not work. If the saw was cordless it would have worked. Not so for this one. You need at least 20 inches to accommodate the cord.Otherwise, no complaints!I highly recommend this DeWalt 12V corded reciprocating saw.
