I love the DeWalt blade change system; just pull out the lever, take out the blade, drop in a new blade, and let go of the lever. Light years ahead of the old Alan screw designs! You can also insert the blade facing back or forward, depending on the application. You can also insert it 90-degrees to the tool, making it a very versatile saws all.
The tool has plenty of power; I've bent and broken a lot of blades but never have bound up the saw where it stopped running. There is little to no play in the shaft, so cutting a true line is about as easy as you can get with a reciprocating saw. The foot design is very heavy duty and rigid. The fact that the foot doesn't flex could cause marring, but I seldom care about that since i use a sawsall almost exclusively for demo work.
Other than that, I've been using this to cut up a small tree that fell in the yard, and this thing has simply not quit. I stupidly am cutting up 8" sections of trunk and thankfully this recip. saw does not know the difference, and keeps on going.
My only recommendation is to wear cotton gloves cause it gets hot after 30 minutes of constant use. Hey, so do I ! 😏
Im a DIY-ER but I been using dewalt tools since thev18 volt was popular. When I first got into battery tools dewalt offered more tools than any manufacturer now today there are a lot of choices. I like to stay with the proven. All of dewalt tools that I own I will always give five stars to I like how the engineers look at and study how to build them to suit our use
Thanks for reading Mike
I bought this tool because I knew I would need something like this to cut through a wall under my steps to add more storage space (Drywall + Metal Studs).
But in the short term, I figured I could use it for another purpose .. cutting roots of bushes that I wanted to remove from a flower bed that was up against a cement porch. Trying to dig them out had proved impractical in the past, and there wasn't much leverage to get to them with other tools. Two weeks prior I had worn myself out working at it for hours. After getting this tool and using a low TPI blade, I made quick work of the roots in seconds! Definitely a back saver! While I figure this will likely be one of the least used tools in my arsenal, it's good to know that it can be counted on when needed.
As I said at the beginning, I don't have any other experience with this kind of tool. I did compare it to others at the local home improvement stores, and recommend you do the same as well. A few things drew me to this tool over others. (1) It's of a reasonable weight, and felt well balanced. I suspect this will be of significant importance to users depending on job length. You want something that isn't going to cause you too much fatigue - let the tool do the work, don't let the tool work you. (2) It's power was adequate for my needs. I opted for this corded model over cordless primarily because I knew I wouldn't be using it daily, but wanted to make sure I had constant power. It's 10 amps, which seemed to be in the middle of all the others I looked at, which lead me to believe it isn't too weak, and also not overkill. (3) The 4 positions for the blade is a feature I think could be of some use, maybe with respect to getting into tight corners up against a wall as otherwise the handle could be in the way depending on what your doing, or just as a matter of comfort for holding depending on the motion for side to side. The ability to quick change without having to loosen and tighten a screw holding the blade is nice as well. If you know that this kind of feature is important to you, you may want to consider the milwaukee instead for the rotating handle, but keep in mind that is just the handle rotating, and not the body. (4) The case is fairly decent. I like my tools in hard cases. De-Walt cases are usually pretty good in this area, especially with the closing hinges. The case on this one has adequate room for the tool, the manual, as well as blades, which you need to acquire separately. The DEWALT DW4892 Reciprocating Saw Blade Set with Case, 12-Piece will fit just fine and is a pretty good assortment of blades to get started. (5) The price was right. Getting what I believe to be a quality reciprocating saw for under $100 seemed like a decent deal to me.
This saw is a good example. It is light enough for someone without a lot of experience to use comfortably, and yet I have used this model for many years in my career. It has never let me down. There were rare occasions that I might have wanted a more powerful saw, but 99% of the time this saw was plenty strong. It is the perfect sawzall for pruning.I love the easy way to change blades! I would recommend this saw for anyone looking for a dependable tool for most jobs.

The seller was excellent (Big Red Toolbox) and it arrived in 2 days at a great price. The saw comes in a heavy duty plastic carrying case with instructions and a schematic diagram of the saw presumably for if ever it needs to be taken apart to be repaired. The case also contains a multipurpose blade for wood/metal although I had also purchased a spare set of blades (Bosch Keo) which are an excellent addition and can be stored easily in the saw's case. It has a 2 metres long mains cable which is a bit of challenge to squeeze into the case if you ant it to close easily.
Preparing the saw for its first use is simplicity itself. The instructions for fitting the blade are straightforward but worth reading for the sake of safe usage of what is after all a very powerful tool. The mechanism for fitting the blade is effective if a little fiddly to use. I read in another review that as the lever is plastic there's a risk of it breaking but I reckon you'd have to be pretty cack-handed to do that, in which case you ought not to be using a saw like this in the first place!
Eager to give it a go I fitted a wood cutting blade and tried it on an old piece of 2 by 4 I had lying around. "Hot knife through butter" is the phrase that comes to mind! I also quickly appreciated that this is a powerful beast and if you don't handle it properly you could easily detach yourself from a finger or two in the blink of an eye. So safety is the watchword here.
I then set to demolishing the climbing frame which consisted of 6 inch diameter uprights, metal rungs for the ladder and nailed planks. I changed the blade to a metal cutting one and went at one of the rungs. it went through easily at first and then met a bit of resistance. But it wasn't until I had cut through the whole thing that I realised that what I thought was a hollow tube actually had a threaded bolt running through. It made short work of that however.
Some of the timber planks were close to a fence which made it a little difficult to get close up to with the blade. But this is where the ability to position the blade in one of 4 settings came into its own. I thought that this facility was just a bit of a gimmick but it's actually really useful for cutting in awkward spaces. I used an all purpose blade which sliced through the timber and the nails in no time at all.
As I said earlier this is a powerful machine which was amply demonstrated when at one point it gave me quite a kick back when I hadn't positioned the blade correctly on the piece of wood I was about to slice up. I ended up bending the blade a bit - easily bent straight again - but be warned.
So all in all I am more than chuffed with this Dewalt saw. It's solid and therefore no light weight so can't be used one handed (not that you should do this anyway) It's well built and the yellow colour means you're unlikely to lose it! And it comes in a very handy carry case. With proper handling this saw should give years of service.
Very well made, easy to operate, takes a variety of blades & makes very short work of any materials.
Blade fitting is a piece of cake, much easier than comparable models from other manufacturers. Just flip the yellow pad & insert blade, simple.
One bit of advice, rather than spending a fortune on DeWalt dedicated blades, use either Bosch or Irwin reciprocating saw blades.
The fit is universal, the quality is the same as DeWalt, but the price is far lower.
In recent months I've managed to burn out two recip saws, one Bosch, & one budget (Lidl).
Don't waste your money, buy this tool & you can totally depend on it. I use it to cut logs & firewood for a woodburner, but also for metal cutting, plasterboard, light demolition work & first fix timberwork, & it excells in all departments.
You really won't be disappointed with this beauty.
I've used this mainly for breaking pallets down to size, using a both metal blades to get in between the slats and slice the nails, and using a combi blade to go through both wood and nails when I needed to. I've also cut a couple of steel oil dums and the tool wasn't phased in the slightest.
The quick release / change mechanism of the blade is great. It's possible started to get a bit stuck (meaning you have to lift the flap the whole way to release the blade) but that might just be the mechanism getting clogged with saw dust. It hasn't bothered me enough to check it yet.
The blade provided with the saw was ok, but I bought separate wood, metal and demolition baldes (240mm) which work much better - the extra length really helps when trying to cut in areas where the saw needs to be a bit further from the cutting area (i.e. middle slats in some pallets).
I've yet to try it in the garden for pruning but I suspect it will eat whatever comes in its way. I've used it for up to 2 hours at a time and overheating didn't seem a problem.
Great tool that I'm sure will be used for years to come.
The fact that the blade can be turned to cut all 4 directions is what made me buy this saw. There's a variable speed trigger which makes it a breeze to cut through anything.
If you're thinking of buying a reciprocating saw, I'd highly recommend this one
Another problem was with the relatively short mains lead, necessitating lugging a mains extension reel up the trees, and connecting the saw in from there. Overall, I'm satisfied - despite these issues - because the saw has saved me a great deal of time and effort compared to using a handsaw.
Why only four stars, not five?
Well it's more to do with the nature of a reciprocating saw. It's limited in it's application. It vibrates the work piece and has a limited reach of 150mm. This model came with only one blade with limited suitability for many applications. Addition purchase of metal cutting blade struggles with hard materials, ie some steels. The vibration could have better suppression. However, on rigid, softer work pieces, it works a treat, knife through butter. Horses for courses and on that basis I would recommend.
However, I would not suggest the metal blades much from my experience as they seem to bend very easily.
The saw itself is etremely powerful and I have used it for a lot of things, from demolition to construction.
The build quality is very robust and you can tell it is made well.
It is also 240v
I've had this a few weeks now and it's tough and durable. The blades are expensive but you can get the Bosch ones that fit perfectly.
I use it every few days to chop up logs for the wood burner, it's gone straight through all the logs I've shown it so far!
This is also a great price for a Dewalt product, I've seen this same model going for £240 on other sites!
My new favourite toy!
I bought the dewalt saw and some bi-metal blades (DeWalt DT2353QZ ) in a pack of five. I only need 1 blade this thing just sliced the tank to pieces though the rivits, corners - may as well have been plywood. Brilliant and the blades are a doodle to put in and take out.
Comes in a sturdy plastic case.
