Good info but this was the same price for the last two weeks with the shop your way points. I've been watching this to see if the price does in fact jump back up.

I ordered it for 3 days and just picked it up. I had $15 freecash and $5 off coupon. With paying by Sears card, price came out to me for $29.79 included tax. I am not sure its quality, but it is good enough for me to do job around my house with the price I paid. I also got $4.xx back in point.

Good eye. I also noticed their oscillating multi-tool is half price at only $55 but I'm too lazy to make a post for it. I paid $80 for it a while back and thought that was a good deal...

So here is my situation I got some roots from years that were torn down to cut out if I were to dig the roots up could this handle the cut? Are there longer blades I could use for a thicker diameter root?

This could work...just buy Diablo's longer blade...I have another company's electric one on which I have that blade and did something similar...
On the other hand...if you are wasting money on this(50) and the longer blade(~10) then why not get a cheapo electric pole saw or something similar...much faster to do cutting of branches or roots which are out and above ground

she said she recently inherited an older B&D skill saw. it had a patched 2 prong cord that she took off and put a heavy duty plug on. then the blade was on backwards as if they last cut sheet metal with it.
Who is she?

Gah,
- I redeem $20 in Freecash points and the total goes to $31. Yippee!
- I click "Review" and the total goes to $51.
- I go back and unredeem points and see the Freecash points available again, so redeem them again, same result of $31 changing to $51 at Review. Log out and log in, same thing.

I choose to click "Review" rather than "Place Order" because I've been bitten by this before (on a different PC), and it took a long painful call to Customer Service and speaking to the supervisor to get it resolved, with an unpleasant overtone that they didn't really believe me (they wouldn't let me send a PDF of the payment page showing the lower price).

I give up.

For those who don't know. Craftsman power tools are very poor quality. Most of them are made by ryobi. If you want a power tool and this garbage fits the price point, look first on CPO and find yourself a reconditioned one from bosch Milwaukee dewalt or makita, or go to bigskytool and get a reconditioned Hitachi. Any of thkse tools.will run miles around Craftsman

Their power tools have gone down the hill in the last several years. They are NOT like they used to be anymore. Even the hand tools.
Lucky for me that I have enough collection of Craftsman tools that can last my lifetime.​
For power tools, I recommend Rigid for home use. Why? They have lifetime warranty.

Except for their higher end offerings, I'd put most modern Craftsman power tools below Ryobi, maybe down closer towards the B&D and Chicago Electric end of things.

"Scrolling" LOL, so I guess this is perfect for making jig-saw puzzles!

Most of times I've needed a sawzall, the last thing I wanted was a "scrolling" effect.
