I have this saw. I like it a lot. You'll need to use p108 batteries with it.

I also have a $200 Milwaukee corded Reciprocating saw. The Milwaukee obviously has a lot more power, but I'll usually reach for this for the convenience of not having a cord.

Definitely agree with you. I first saw this tool on a youtube channel called Real Tool Reviews, where the reviewer went in depth on usage and battery life. No doubt the Milwaukee makes work like a cakewalk, I think for the layman the performance/price ratio is pretty good. If anyone is a Makita fan there's a recip saw XRJ04Z on Ebay that goes for about $65 after the 15 off 75 coupons that have been coming out monthly. Pretty much the same tool spec wise, different "color" obviously =] .

I purchased one of these when HD had the 50% rebate a few years back. The thing is indestructible. I use it with pruning blades to try to keep my bottom two acres mostly cleared out (flood plain), and have cut hundreds of bushes/small trees up to six inches across. Mostly I use it on brush between 3/4 and four inches (it's not really meant for things six inches across but that was up in a tree cutting an overhanging limb, and I just don't like ladders and chain saws). I've actually shredded the outside black gripping layer I've used it so much. Big Grin

What's the general usage for this for a typical home owner? As far as I know reciprocating saws are meant to rekt stuff and demolition

Post above yours also mentions cutting branches and bushes, basically filling in for some chainsaw or pruner uses. If a home owner shops online a lot they may also find it useful for carving up larger boxes for easier disposal.

Depending on how powerful the saw, the general applications [familyhandyman.com] can be suggested by blade type:

Quote :
For cutting through metal pipes and nails, use a fine-tooth blade resembling a hacksaw.
When cutting through wood, use a coarse blade.
Use the coarsest-tooth blade to cut through plaster.
Some blades are toothless. They're coated with tungsten carbide abrasive grit; use them for cutting stone, ceramic tile and cast iron.

I've used this saw (and a similar one) to trim trees and cut down small ones, cut off iron brake rotors that were rusted to the hubs, remove rotten wood garage trim, cut angle iron for a metal fab job, cut holes in wood wall paneling, drywall, and plaster walls, and cut old nails that would have been hard to pull.

They can be used for a wide array of tasks, and overlap with a bunch of other types of saws, in terms of functionality. They don't cut with great precision but they are versatile. Not something everyone needs, but you may come up with lots of unforeseeable uses for a recip saw. Don't buy one if you can't think of a single way to use it, but if you can come up with one use you can devise a ton more eventually.

Thanks, I have a jig saw and a chain saw already so I'm not sure if I should stock up on another saw. Would be nice to add another Ryobi One to my collection but probably shouldn't get it if I don't have a use for it in the near future.

Not a bad deal for the tool itself, but if you don't already own Ryobi tools you will need to spend AT LEAST another $50 for the charger/battery combo. I would also buy the 4 Ah batteries to go with this. That's another $100. Just something to consider if you don't already own at least one Ryobi 18V battery and charger.

I use this thing all the time for cutting up branches that are too big for my loppers It's not the greatest thing ever, but beats sawing by hand. Using a diablo wood blade. Other than some wobble, it's cut just about everything I've put it on.

The target customers for bare tools such as this are people that already have other tools in the line and don't need more batteries or chargers. They can get another tool in their arsenal without the expense of a kit that includes yet another battery and charger that they don't need.

If you don't already have a battery and charger, they do offer it in a kit that includes those: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-.../301404321

Don't forget the 11% rebate match for in-store purchases in areas with Menards stores: https://www.homedepotrebates11percent.com/#/home (should update with new dates in a couple days)

when they say "new lower price" does that mean that this is now the regular price? I want this but don't need it now. maybe next month when I begin my project.

Ryobi+ HD is usually pretty good. I can't speak for this exact item, but if you are 2 years into a 3 year Ryobi warranty, they sometimes just tell you to pick out a different tool from the store (provided it's legitimately broken due to a manufacturer defect type issue and not run over from a truck).

HD's extended warranties seem pretty good too, and usually aren't too much.

I think personally though, i'd rather pick up that $75ish dollar Makita and grab a generic extended battery off of Ebay (one with decent reviews).

I'm waiting for Amazon to do some more tool sales. Or maybe Prime day. Amazon told me it's coming soon!!
