Rated 2 out of 5 by from The weight of the saw is nice. I was not pleased with the performance of this saw. I needed it for a variety of tasks, mainly demo work. It would shut off when it got hot after minimal use, I guess a safe guard for the motor, very frustrating. There’s nothing like being in the middle of a cut then pulling the trigger and getting nothing. Now having to drag out a cord along with a different saw to finish the job. This happened more times than not. Recently the saw has completely stopped functioning. The motor runs but I don’t get any action. When I called to see where the closest place was to get it fixed, it was over an hour away. I live in Louisville and never thought it would be this difficult to get it repaired under the LSA. Not worth my time to drive that far then wait for it to get fixed. This saw is perfect for someone who DOESN’T make their living depending on it day in and day out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product is not durable I own a Construction company and use tools frequently. The reciprocating saw stopped working due to mechanical problems. I sent to be repaired and it took 3 months to get back. When trying it out after it was obvious the repairs were not made and the saw has stopped working completely. If you are someone who needs there tools to function as I do I do not recommend this product. So now I have sent tool off for the second time witch means I will be without this tool for the majority of the year with no concern from rigid.

I'm a little confused on this specific tool, I can't seem to locate the Genx5 brushless reciprocating saw is this one brushless ?

It seems only the special edition tools are brushless
