used to cut heater core hose and mate used coarse blade to cut few small rhody limbs. this is a nice tool. long, with plenty of leverage. comes with two blades:hacksaw and coarse cut. buy one.
Being able to use a reciprocating saw blade in this intrigued me and its a nice feature but a full size hack saw blade (10"-12") probably would be clumsy in this and 6" blades are kind of hard to find (******* has them)
Bought this to cut dowels and shims. I have a Craftsman multi saw but needed another multi saw so I don't need to change blades when I'm doing more than one project. So far so good.
