For this post, I have put together a collection of the best reciprocating saws currently available.
UPDATED: May 15, 2020.
MY TOP PICK:
If you are looking for the best overall, I recommend the DEWALT DCS367B because it offers compact cordless design, a keyless clamp for quick blade changes, and four blade positions allowing for flush cuts.
A reciprocating saw is a tool that uses a push-and-pull motion that creates the desired cutting action, similar to a jigsaw. The "foot" of the saw can be rested on the cutting surface which helps to control it when in motion. Depending on the model, most saws have a variable speed that is controlled through either the trigger or a dial on the side of the unit.
Another feature in many reciprocating saws is the use of oscillation, which moves the blade in an elliptical action, allowing for faster cuts. Reciprocating saw blades are typically designed to either cut wood and/or metal, depending on the tooth and size configuration. These tools are so versatile, with the right blade, it can even do the work of a small chainsaw.
The standard method of power is either corded or cordless, so depending on your portability requirements you may want to go with a cordless option. Also, if you already have a cordless drill you may want to pair it with the same brand of saw so they can share battery packs. Check to make sure it is indeed the same battery, as it can differ even within the same brand.
