Excellent Product

Per previous warning about the blade not clamping into saw I took the care to make sure it inserted correctly. The clamping is different as it twist around but was not difficult to get blade in. It was used to trim some branches before the cold settled in for the Season and worked very nicely. Very well made and seems to have the quality Sears is so well known for.

Hazard!

I had the same problems with blades falling out. I just bought this today, and it took less than 2 minutes to have problems with it. I thought other people writing the bad reviews were just putting the blades in wrong - no, this product really has problems. Not only does the blade fall out, but one time it flew up and almost hit me. This is not just a piece of junk, this is a hazard and should not be sold!

Junk

Purchased Just over a year ago along with the blade set. Blades do fall out constantly. Used this maybe 10 times and it completely quit on me yesterday when I needed it. Of course the warranty is 1 year so I am out of luck.
Would not refer anyone to purchase this.

Junk

Broke after second use. Motor runs but wont reciprocate. Was over 30 days so I can't return. So I got about an hour of total use out of it. Got 100's of hours out of my old Dewalt and that still runs. $40 out the window.

Excellent Product

This products is very easy to use for my weekend projects around the house. It has strong power and is light weight which makes it usable with very little effect. Very fair value for this type product. Highly recommended.

Poor quality, an unsafe product

|

With the exception of a gutless 5.5HP lawnmower (handled like it had 1.5 HP) , I have never had any major issues with craftsman power tools.

Light use - 2X4's, 2 X 6's, even a 1.5 inch square piece of wood causes enough friction the blade comes out. I would say that maybe the friction is too much, but some of these I pulled out with my bare hands. To show the folks at the store, I left the blade in the most recent piec of wood, cutting through it with an old hand saw more quickly than I did with the power saw... because any applicaiton of pressure causes the blade to come out.

With the power and 2700 RPM cycle this poses a serious hazard if you are doing tree limbs, on a roofe, or ....well... almost any working situation. The blad sort of "clips" in, not screwed in with an allen bolt like higher priced (and higher quality) products.

This is what I get by trying to save a little money.

Good for the price and my use

|

I bought it for use to trim tree limbs in the yard. it works well for that purpose. This is not meant to be a commercial all day use, for bigger limbs and trunks, I would have to let it cool down in case it over heats. But it is able to cut limbs down in 5 to 10 minutes that if done manually would have taken over 1/2 and hour and lots of work.

Not bad for small projects

|

This is an alright saw. I'd recommend over battery equivalents, but wouldn't for any heavy duty work. Good to have around if you get it on sale. Nice ergonomics.

poor craftsmanship

|

The worst craftsman purchase ever! Put blade in and pulled on it to make sure it was locked-in and it stayed in. But everytime I went to cut with it the blade would come out. I was really surprised with it being a craftsman product.

Decent Reciprocating Saw for the price

|

This reciprocating saw is decent -- it has OK power and is relatively light weight, however there are other good options out there as well. I had gotten this for a very good price however normally you can spend a few more bucks and get something else with more features (like a 12A reciprocating saw, rotating handles, etc).

The ergonomics of this reciprocating saw aren't the best -- a pistol style grip works much better.

easy to use, works great

|

I have been using this saw to cut the branches off my trees and it has worked wonderfully. The blade is really easy to install and lasts a while. I use a long extension chord to reach my tress and have had no problems.
