When it comes to Reciprocating Saws, this one easily takes the cake as the most powerful one I have used to date. I have several models from a wide range of manufacturers, but this Skilsaw wins out for its power and overall comfort.
There are distinct advantages to this tool, such as its electronic sensors that respond under load for ideal power and reduced wear. Additionally, the Buzzkill technology gives this saw its namesake by providing a virtually vibration free use. This is something I have seen a lot in saws from other manufacturers, but never quite as effectively done as in this model. Additionally, the soft start is a huge plus in this tool, something users will greatly appreciate as they use this tool.
This saw is a solid saw, reminding me of classic tools that would last a user twenty plus years. The overall construction is incredible, with features that users will appreciate. The corded power supply provides a distinct advantage to this power-hungry tool, giving users great value for a saw that will give unparalleled performance.
