Porter-Cable Finally Develops An 18-Volt Clampsaw Reciprocating Saw

Back in January 2011 I reviewed the Porter-Cable 12-volt Clampsaw and really liked the Clampsaw feature. I liked the feature so much that the Clampsaw was chosen as a ToolRank Editors Pick. The tool did have its problems, but I suspect Porter-Cable took their time to address these for the 18-volt version (PCC475B).

Nobody likes the kickback that can occur when the blade of a reciprocating saw snags on the material, the Clampsaw eliminates kickback by clamping the material between two jaws on the saw. This is a great safety feature as well as a great time saver. One of the things I didn't like in the 12-volt version was that the clamp required an Allen wrench to extend/adjust the clamping jaw, but it looks like the 18-volt PCC475B has gone tool-less.

The PCC475B carries over all of the other features that the 12-volt version has, including a pivoting handle, an LED light, tool-less blade change, and rubberized grip.

Look for the PCC475B (tool only) to hit stores shelves in September, and retail for around $90.
