PORTER-CABLE PCE360 7.5 Amp Variable Speed Reciprocating Saw

$36 at Amazon and Lowes. Most Lowes are pout of stock but amazon matched them and still has it for now.

I know I'm gonna takes lot of flack, but I'd rather buy the Harbor Freight reciprocating saw with rotating handle for $20 after coupon.

Less money, easier to swap out/return if it breaks, great reviews, etc.

This PC saw is middle/lower end and amazon returns are far more difficult than HF (if one nearby).

Spend the savings on a nice Diablo blade.

Good question to be honest. Looks like its falling into the same middle range now on average.

But some craftsman is just basic Chinese junk with their name on it while others are top of the line.

So I don't think they have a solid plan for craftsman now so be careful what you buy with that name on it.

I agree, and with 3 (or more) concurrent ~20v battery platforms, the brand is especially iffy. However, I did see one tool tear down on a new higher end Craftsman impact driver, and it has the same guts as a higher end DeWalt. I'd expect the guts of lesser models to be the same as Porter Cable or even Black&Decker (as was seen in the Matrix/Bolt-On).

Can these be used to put thick branches (2-4")? It's all dependent on the blade, right? Or are tree branches too wet?

Shouldn't be an issue with proper blade

Really? Every time I go to HF there is a giant line and the wait is about 15 minutes. Amazon return I just drop off at a locker or have UPS pick up...

I bought this from Lowes a couple of years ago, for a touch less. Solid saw, robust, no complaints.

Bought one of these the last time it was on sale. So far so good. Used it to cut out three aluminum windows so far. One more window and two sliding doors to finish up eventually. I got mine at Lowes.
