Almost great
This is the third reciprocating saw that I purchased in a short amount of time. The other two went back. The Bosch is powerful and comfortable, and has worked well for a few months. The other saws were returned because they weren't well designed (usable, comfortable, etc.). I like the ergonomics and function of this saw-it was decidedly better to use than the others. I am mostly happy with the purchase and use.

The downside: This saw doesn't have adjustable orbital action. It's always on. It makes for aggressive cuts, but it also makes cutting metal challenging at times. If you want to just rip things to pieces, the saw is great for that. There are times that it would be really helpful to be able to turn off the orbital action though.

It's variable speed, but there's no speed set dial. That would be nice at times too.

There's a 'lock on' button above the trigger, sometimes that gets engaged accidentally, and the saw keeps going after releasing the trigger. That's a little disconcerting when it keeps going and you expect it to stop. Nice when you want it to 'just go' though.

The bag it came with is OK. Zippers don't seem to hold up very well in the long run, especially when they're regularly exposed to dirt and sawdust.

Nothing terribly negative there, just small annoyances. I am happy with it. I did purchase another (non-orbital) sawzall to work around the aggressive cut issues. I think if I were looking to purchase another saw right now, I'd probably check out the Makita pallet saw or even a Hilti-they both look ergonomic enough, and have speed and orbital adjustments. (incidentally, the high-end Milwaukee was one of the returns-because it was so uncomfortable to use)

Wife bought this for me for xmas. Already used for cutting cabinets and performed amazing. Easy locking blades made changing a snap. The weight of the tool helps with stability as I made horizontal cuts for a dishwasher. You can see and feel the quality. Great carry bag with plenty of room for extra blades. Be sure to get the Bosch blade assortment!

Accurate and Ruthless
I have had my Bosch Sawzall for probably 15 years. It obviously has the power and ability to do any demolition type work, but what has surprised me the most is how accurate and careful you can actually be with this saw. I have actually (I don't recommend it, but I pulled it off cut openings in lath and plaster walls with this saw that looked like they were done with a razor. If you hold it right and go slow, you can be very accurate and delicate if needed. I have abused this saw over the years. I have attacked huge tree roots in muddy holes out of frustration, when I couldn't get anything else to get a large stump loose. As well as every other task you can ask of a reciprocating saw. It's well balanced, strong, and never gives up.

Heavy (Weight wise) duty
It is a very heavy reciprocating saw. It works well on metal and wood. The variable speed trigger is hard to control the speed with, basically there are low, medium, and high speeds.

Great saw
I bought this saw to replace my 24V Dewalt. This saw is much smoother and powerful. I would recommend this to anyone.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
