Had the old cordless B&D recip saw for years, that used the old cylindrical NiMH batteries that are no longer available. Loved the old saw & needed a replacement. Searched the web & this one appeared ideal. Have only used it once so far, for small dead tree branches & it worked fine. Had trouble at first finding the blade release lever (instructions weren't clear enough---for me), but once figured out, worked fine. Also nice that it uses almost all of the blades that the old one did (interesting that the instructions say "...accepts T-shank blades only." but box says "Accepts all standard jigsaw blades."), so I didn't have to buy new blades & I'm "back in business" at a reasonable price. Unable at this point to evaluate battery longevity but generally impressed with other Lithium battery-powered tools.
this is the second one we have bought. We install custom AV systems. Needed a small power saw to cut drywall & wood quickly. Used to use a Makita but it really was not very powerfull. This works great and holds a charge for quite a long time.
Warranted for two (2) years from date of purchase. This warranty does not cover damage resulting from negligent handling, misuse or lack of reasonable maintenance and care. (Proof of purchase maybe required).
"This is my third purchase from CPO and I have been very satisfied all three times. Excellent delivery time, excellent price & the reconditioned tools looked and worked like new. A true value." -Ryan A.
