From the manufacturer
The 15 AMP Heavy Duty Reciprocating Saw delivers rugged, dependable performance unlike any reciprocating saw you've used before. Patented BUZZKILL Technology stops vibration dead in its tracks.
The full-frame, linear counterbalance stops vibration at the source, instead of moving it around and shifting it to the user, as other saws do.
The 15 Amp motor powers through the most demanding work, while Constant Response Electronics sense the load and immediately increase the power when you need it. That means comfortable, controlled cuts that don't wear on you or your tool.
Variable speed dial sets tool speed for cutting specialized materials.

Easy to handle, powerful but smooth, easy on forearms and body.....Loved it !!
2nd day we made 2 cuts in stainless steel table with Diablo Carbide blade. Again saw worked great. We were so happy with the saw we couldn't stop talking about it. ....
30 Minutes later when I picked up the saw to make 3rd cut, saw had no life, it was dead.
We checked extension cord, plug, wires everything I could check ..yet no luck. I end up driving to local HD and bought
Dewalt 12amp saw for 89.99 to finish the job.
Later that day when got home I plug tested the saw in my garage still no luck. I called SKIL customer service and make them aware of the issue but person on other end wasn't not helpful.
Luckily I am able to return it to Amazon for a small loss.
I want to buy this saw again just to give it a second try...but I am afraid to get Screwed.
SKILL please reach out to me.
But I have to ask, what took so long?!?!? I have a VERY old (40+ years old) Milwaukee recip saw with a 3/4" stroke that has been to heck and back. Have bought newer Milwaukee saws as well as other brands, but they "ALL" had too much vibration. EVERY - SINGLE - ONE of them!! For YEARS I've been looking for a decent replacement saw. So thank you Skilsaw, for making this old man's wish finally come true.
To Potential Buyers: GET THIS! If you're looking for a low-vibration saw, this is it. It isn't the most aggressive, nor the most powerful, nor any number of other things. But it IS the lowest-vibration reciprocating saw I've ever had the pleasure to hold. My ONLY complaint is with the blade lock. On the last saw I got, you could open the tool-less blade lock and it would stay open, effectively allowing a one-handed blade change. With this saw, a one-handed blade change is still possible, but takes practice.
Skilsaw has a big brother to this coming out soon, but I'm not interested. It'll be fine for demolition, I suppose, but I "build" things, so I need a --smooth-- saw. And at 13 amps, who really needs anything more? I've cut rear tractor tires (LARGE ones!) as well as steel, but not yet used it for wood. I have no doubt it'll perform flawless, but then I want a nice cut; not a 'rip job'.
Updated JAN 2020:
I've had my saw for about 1 1/2 years now. It is, hands down, the BEST reciprocating saw I've ever had the pleasure to use!! I've been tempted to try the slightly-more-powerful 15 amp model, but am too happy with this one. Besides, this saw does everything I need. Still have my older saw when I need to tear stuff up, but this one's a dream to use. Virtually zero vibration.
I have to assume the 15 amp saw is just as good, and honestly I can't see how much difference those 2 amps would make, but the extra 2.3 pounds of the heavier model can certainly take its toll over a lot of use. So my advice is, don't discount this model if you're looking for a great tool.
Again Skil, thank you for finally getting back in the tools game with such a winner as this!
Moved to the Raleigh, NC area, and this property has a lot of brush and trees: Pine, ironwood, dogwood, and oak. I can cut the oak saplings with a standard lopper, but not so easy with the larger branches and saplings. I have a hand saw, to take out the saplings at the far edges of the property. Then I can drag them closer.
I'd thought about a chainsaw, but the "chain" doesn't cut as well, given the teeth placement. Plus, the chain can break. I need to get all around the property, and an electric chainsaw doesn't last more than 20 minutes or so on a charge. This SKIL reciprocating saw, though, is still AC power cord. So I got a 100-ft extension.
The rating is about 7.5-Amps, and at 100 feet, we're going to lose only a small bit of amperage with distance. I was a bit worried, but no problem: The saw runs perfectly, no overheating, and no loss of power. It's got a variable speed trigger, and comes with a 6" general purpose blade. (You can buy other types of blades if you're using the saw for plumbing or metal.) With the 100-ft cord, I went indoor/outdoor, 15-amp, and the 3-hole grounded connector. This saw uses only a polarized 2-prong plug, but it works flawlessly on the cord. A 12-guage cord is just too heavy, so I went with 14-guage. Again, a little worried, but no problems at all. The cord stays cool.
The only problem anyone might have is that the unit is a bit heavy. I could have gotten maybe something lighter from Walmart or Harbor Freight, but those saws actually are less amperage -- the amperage determines the power, so the 7 amps of the SKIL saw make it more powerful. It's not THAT heavy, just it'll take a bit of arm strength to use it one-handed. It's 7lb-4oz, about the weight of a 7lb bag of cat litter. If you can use both hands, like branches on the ground, then no problem. Plus, this is an American company with some history. Not sure where other brands come from.
The maneuverability, speed, and solid blade make this an all-purpose, utilitarian saw for all sorts of home projects. Try cutting a 4" ironwood sapling by hand! Yikes! It took the saw longer than with maple or oak, but it was pretty quick. That stuff doesn't even burn all that well! The saw got a little warm, but the manual said that's normal.
Finally, the big test was a fallen pine tree from last winter. This was partially rotted, and about 9" diameter. I was able to drag it to the driveway, then went ahead and tried cutting it. I started at the upper surface and cut down about 2 inches, to where the end of the blade was about matching the trunk surface. But then I started continuing that cut down the back side, then moved it up and around the front side. Like cutting a pipe. That got me about halfway through. At that point, I was able to turn the saw upside down and cut up from the bottom. Met the cuts from the top, and Wah-Lah!...done!
It's very easy to put the blade in, with a simple lever that lifts up -- slide in the blade until it stops, then release the lever (pulling on the blade to make sure it's locked). Very much like putting beaters in a hand-mixer. I could have taken the blade out, flipped it upside down, and put it back in the saw. It'll go in either way -- cutting downward, or cutting upward.
The cord is about 7 feet, I think, which makes it easy to forget it's there, and hit it with the saw while cutting. Best idea is to coil-shorten the unit cord, then tie the extension cord around your waist and plug the saw into the extension. That way you don't have black wire wandering around close to your work area. Otherwise, just pay attention! The cord is permanently installed, so if you cut through it, you'll have to get it repaired by SKIL.
UPDATE: 1 year later -
Still working perfectly! I'm going to buy an 8" blade for larger pieces, but we've had a lot of big wood to clear. This place was a jungle, after 40 years of no maintenance. WARNING!!!! DO NOT TOUCH THE BLADE until you allow it to cool down, after using it!!! I was an idiot, and noticed a bend. I didn't think and went to take out the blade after 5-minutes of steady cutting. Instant second-degree burns! Blisters and all, with numb finger tips. LET THE BLADE COOL! It gets hot!
