Any option of a good battery powered reciprocating saw for home owners use. I have a corded DeWalt which has been good for many years. The battery powered equipment is pricey.

I use Milwaukee M18 Fuel stuff but in the past have had a Performaxx set from Menards that had a recip saw. It had lower amphour batteries so they got used up fairly quick but overall it was a good tool at a cheaper price than the Milwaukee stuff. Menards has changed their cordless tool lines since then but they still look like a good item.

Milwaukee has a 9 and a 12 amp 18v battery now.
If you're going to buy online look up Jersey discount tool co.

I bought a set of Porter cable drills , 1/2" and 1/4 impact because they were on sale . Since I had those batteries I bought a reciprocating saw . They have two models , one with a horizontal motor ( like most corded models have ) and one with a vertical motor , which looks bulky and odd .

I bought the horizontal type , just so I would have one when I needed to make that one cut to finish a job . I needed to make some spacers out of 2" 14 gauge square tubing . With a new blade I cut 8 pieces of tubing a few inches long with no problems or battery run down . I use it more for cutting low limbs . Cutting PVC pipe would be a good use for it .

The Porter Cable 20v tools are OK for hobby work or occasional light work. The 4 1/2" angle grinder is pretty good , the 1/2 impact was a little less than I had hoped for , would not break most lug nuts . I would not want to depend on Porter cable 20v's to make a paycheck , but if your going cheap they are OK .

I use a DeWalt 20v Reciprocating Saw at work and I am not impressed with it . The Kobalt has a lot more power but was hard to hold still to start a cut .
The DeWalt 1/2" drive impact will take off a lug nut and the Kobalt 1/2" drive impact is awesome .

I do not purchase ANY battery powered equipment,unless 12 volt.

Usually I can take along a mower battery, long enough wire, and, most importantly I can saw, drill, etc. long time before recharging the mower battery with my truck system.

Most likely an estate auction with lots of older, better quality 12 volt equipment without the orig. baggery pack or charger. Bid price.....box lots, $1.00.

What battery powered tools do you currently have and use?

If you have battery tools that you use regularly, you should stick with that brand because you're already invested in batteries and chargers.

I have a 20v Dewalt. Like it fine, with one exception. It drains a battery much faster than the impact driver or drill. So next time I'll go for higher capacity batteries.

Makita would be my first choice, after that Dewalt or Milwaukee, maybe Bosch. NOT Porter Cable, Ryobi, Skil, etc.

My vote would be a Dewalt 20 volt,I bought mine when they first came out and have used it a lot on tree trimming and the battery lasts a long time.

me and son inlaw both have the sets made by milwaukee, both the sawsalls would deplete the battery in 30 seconds. they pulled the batteries so fast it ruined them. also have a friend with the same saw and loves it. i would not recomend one.

I have an 18-volt Dewalt a fellow gave me but my Dewalt stuff is 20 volt so I bought the adapter to use the 20-volt battery on 18-volt tools. That thing works like a champ

I have the 12volt Milwaukee Hackzall. I can easily use it one-handed on a ladder. It came with two batteries, and has become one of my favourite tools. unc

I've damaged a lot of batteries with my 18v Dewalt. Shakes too much. I use my cordless right angle grinder with a cutout blade more.

My silly old blue ryobi 18+ is great, I even let the 7yr old use it on firewood. I was impressed when it went through 1/4" thick 2x2 angle with no issues!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I've had an 18v Dewalt for a long time. Doesn't get used much, but never had a problem with it.

I have experience with 3 brands and the order of my preference is:

#1 Rigid

#2 Ryobi

#3 Craftsman

Of course they are at 3 different price points.

Most brands offer them but if you have Ryobi from H Depot would be good for homeowner use.

I have a ridged that I have had for around 15 years and still works like new. It is an item I may use a lot then it sits for a while. I also have a corded Millawkee that is much older but I like the cordless one better

Buy it once, buy it good. Take a look at the Milwaukee 18V kits. The Milwaukee saw is modeled off their corded unit.
