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!

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.

Design flaw - blade pops out.

Like several of the other reviews mentioned, there is a design flaw where blade pops out while in use. I saw the other reviews prior to purchasing and thought other folks might have gotten a dud. Long and behold, it worked fine at first cutting through 1-2 inch tree branches and a fiberglass panel. Once it got to something heavier duty with more friction on sides of the blades like cutting wood embedded nails on a door frame, the blades pops right out every 2-3 seconds. Tried it with 3 different blades and the same problem occurred. Quite disappointing, but luckily Sears took it back for a full refund as it was under 30 days.

Worth every penny

My husband and i are new homeowners and we are trying to get some much needed tools,without breaking the bank. This purchase was an excellent value and it happened to be near fathers day. He used it right away,and loves it. I recommend it to anyone.

Saw for easy handling

I purchased this saw to cut small branches and trees in my yard. An older person is able to handle it with little difficulty. It is better than a chain saw and better chances of not getting injured especially people who are taking a blood thinner such as I.

Good deal for the price.

Decent unit for the price. Perfect for minor jobs around the house. The only negative is that it is heavy and the unit vibrates a lot... but overall a good machine for a homeowner for moderate use.

So far ok...

I have only used this once since purchasing. I trimmed 1-2 inch branches on a tree. Worked good. As others mentioned, the blade came out 1 time. The blade is hot to the touch after use. Don't get burned. Hope to use again on larger branches soon.

Good Buy!

Excellent buy. I was looking everywhere to buy this item and for the right price, and what do you know? Sears had it in store for me. I would recommend it to any customer.

Great Saw!!

All my tools are Craftsman. I know when I purchase one, I will get quality with a guarantee. This saw is just what I needed. Already used on a project and have many more ahead.

Saw

This is a great little saw, I am a weekend warrior and this was perfect I had a cordless one but just didn't hold enough of a charge that I needed. So I went with this and used this a few time worked great.

A great deal for the price!

This was a Xmas gift for my dear friend who also does her own yardwork. We are the Medicare yard ladies and find this the perfect size and weight and price for the yardwork we have to do

Get some pruning blades and make quick work of the shrubbery.

Good light to medium duty saw, the included blade is rather wimpy, but you should buy quality blades anyway. Great price!

absolute trash!

Junk. hardly works for what it is intended. lasts just past the warranty end. I can not believe how far down hill craftsman has gone. this saw is made in china under the name craftsman. not a true craftsman. Wish i could get my money back.. when i bought this saw it came with a 2 year warranty. now it is one year parts (90 days to return it) THAT IS SOME RIDICULES standards for craftsman which used to actually stand behind it's products. I for one have realized that craftsman is nothing more then a name and quality is NOT important.. I will no longer be buying craftsman for ANY tools

Good saw

Good saw for home use. Like light for saw area, lightweight for this type saw and shape makes it well balanced and easy to use. Quick blade change works easy
