Variable-Speed Control for Fast, Accurate Cuts
A reciprocation saw mimics the back-and-forth motion of a handsaw that lets you quickly cut through wood framing, shingles, PVC pipes, and more. Plus a reciprocating saw fits into places where other saws can't go, making it a truly versatile addition to your professional tool kit.

A DEWALT cordless reciprocating saw helps you capitalize on all those benefits, thanks to the fast cutting speeds allowed by its powerful, 18-volt motor and big 1-1/8-inch stroke length. This saw offers variable-speed control for application-specific performance, and it is capable of operating at speeds ranging from 0 to 3,000 spm. When you're finished with a cut, the saw's electric brake stops the blade quickly and reliably.

Versatile, Convenient Blade Clamp and Shoe Design
For versatility, the saw's four-position blade clamp allows you to choose the configuration that best matches your application, and the blade clamp is reinforced with metal for long-term durability. This setup gives you the ability to make flush cuts and the ability to reverse the blade for cutting upside-down, and--regardless of which configuration you're using--the saw's pivoting, open-top shoe makes it easy to see what you're working on. The three-position shoe also makes adjusting cut depth easy and helps extend blade life.

Fast, Keyless Blade Changes
When it comes time to switch to a different type of blade or replace a blade with a fresh one, the keyless lever-action blade-clamp design allows for fast, easy blade changes--no special tools required.

Comfort Grip and Long Battery Life
Since comfortable handling contributes to better control and accurate cuts, this saw weighs an easy-to-maneuver 8.2 pounds and features a textured, anti-slip grip. The variable speed trigger provides consistent performance and improved user control in extended use situations.

A tool's only useful if it runs long enough to get the job done, and DEWALT XRP extended run-time batteries keep this reciprocating saw running at full tilt. They provide up to 40 percent more run-time than standard batteries, and any XRP battery can be used with any 18-volt DEWALT tool, which allows you to streamline your kit. In addition, the one-hour charger helps reduce downtime so you can get your task done quickly.

This 18-volt cordless XRP reciprocating saw kit also comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money back guarantee.

Style Name: 1-Battery Kit
DeWalt has another cordless winner here. Plenty of power. I have a corded Mikita saw that I have used for years and its great for the big, intensive use jobs. I wanted something for the smaller jobs that was cordless and not have to drag around an extension cord... quick out; quick to put away. I have a mix of corded power tool brands but settled on DeWalt for my cordless needs. I have half-dozen 18v XRP's and a couple of chargers through past purchases.

If you are in a similar situation with extra batteries and chargers...
Maxtools.com sells the 'BARE TOOL' at a good price (no batteries/charger are included). Amazon should stock the bare tools. The saw was $99 and comes with a 6" combo blade so that you can test the saw.

Be warned, my saw took almost 3 weeks to arrive, but, hey, the price is right for a DeWalt and the saw arrived without damage. However there was no owners manual which I thought was an odd oversight. But a few minutes fiddling with the front end and the blade change was figured out... lift the tab on the front right side of the saw all the way up and remove/install a blade. The button at the left front allows the 'shoe' at the front of the saw to extend/retract and lock in several positions. (If you are wondering about the moveable 'shoe', it allows for some depth-of-cut control vis-a-vis the length of your saw blade when needed for certain applications.) As for the rest, I don't need a manual to show me how to pull a trigger or change a battery. I am a huge fan of the 4-way blade clamp set up. There is a vertical and horizontal blade clamp incorporated into one head. Blade change is a snap and you can set the blade teeth to point up, down, right or left. The versatility of this feature is great! Gone are the days of contortions to cut sideways.

This tool is quite powerful and last a long time on a single battery. This was part of the DC6KITA. I have tested each tool and have reviewed some. This one is not exception. On a fresh battery and with the supplied blade I continually cut 2x4's until my hand was sore from holding on. The power is nice. It did not seem too bog when pushed hard through the wood. Battery life suprised me by never giving up. On a full demo job where cutting throught various materials is necessary it might show it's weakness in longevity.

Having purchased a 1/2 rebar to test the DC410 cut-off tool, I proceeded to test the DC385 with a 18tpi metal blade. It worked quite well. The power was still there. No bogging. Of course pressure was needed to help the teeth bite, but that is to be expected.

Also the adjustable shoe is a new feature. It does not have much range of motion but at least it is there.

For most all home projects this is going to be a wonderful tool. In owning many XRP batteries and having several chargers, I don't forsee buying a corded saw. This would be a solid 5 star tool, but there is only one thing that slightly bothers me. The blade is not centered in the shoe becuase of the 4 way blade clamp. Now I gave it the 5 because I would rather have the 4 way clamp than have it centered.

Growing up working for my father (contractor) I spent quite a bit of time using corded reciprocating saws. I would have never guessed a battery operated unit could hold a candle to its corded brothers. But you will be pleasantly surprised when you let this unit rip. I have pulled through all kinds of material and this bad boy hasn't slowed down once. But you will know when the battery has reached capacity... the saw immediately dies. I see this as a good thing, since I need full power for most work, degraded power would be useless. Just slap another battery in and don't worry about tangling your cord.

Put this saw to work as soon as I got it, There aer several trees on our property and they need pruning several times a year. I have been using a small gas chain saw. The DeWalt is lighter and just as fast on limbs up to 6 in. dim. Greatfor use on a ladder.

I haven't had this saw for very long, but it's already been very useful. It's powerful enough to cut through thick limbs, and versatile enough to use on small things. My only disappointment was that it didn't come with any saw blades, so I had to go to Home Depot to buy some. But once I had those in hand, I used the saw, and I had no trouble doing everything I wanted without the need for another battery charge.

First off - put the battery in the charger for a day before use. This ensures that the battery is primed and ready to go because this unit will suck the life out of it very quickly if is not a fully charged battery. My unit was shipped with battery installed and lasted about 5 minutes. Luckily, I had other 18v batteries for my Dewalt 18v drill and they got me through the first job. With that said, I have used the unit for cutting branches to feed in a 3" chipper/shredder and the unit worked very well. There was no watching where the power cord might be, of which cutting through one is the bane of ac-powered units.

The carrying case is the usual DeWalt quality. I had purchased a pack of DeWalt blades for the unit at my local big box store and I was able to figure a way to store the plastic case of blades within the saw case without too much problem.

The only reason that I gave the unit 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is a battery-powered unit. I also have a Milwaukee unit that will saw for a longer period of time - as long as I don't cut the power cord :>)

The Dewalt recip saw should serve most of your cutting needs. It is a worthy addition to your DeWalt family of tools.
