Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Recently purchased this as a backup for my 10+ year old reciprocating saw from my original Ridgid kit (which is still running). There is a NOTABLE increased difference with both the power and run time of this saw vs. the original. The saw has what I would describe as a soft start feature which reduces saw blade teeth catching and slapping the material around. The increase in power lets you make cuts in tight areas where you have to bend the blade for access without bogging down the motor due to binding. It is evident that customer feedback played a role in the design of this model. The addition of the cut line light is great for working in tight/dark corners and the blade holder/release mechanism seems less likely to bind with dust and debris over time. Overall, I think this is a great tool.
