The gold standard of recipocating saws
Do not own one of these, but have used a friend's. I own a similar saw in another brand that I bought before using my friend's Milwaukee and now I wished I'd bought the Milwaukee instead. The two saws have roughly the same: weight, power and cutting capacity, but the biggest difference between the two is the amount of vibration each produces, which may not make much difference to you if you only have occasional use for a saw like this. If you have to use one for any length of time though, believe me, you'll want the one that doesn't beat you up as much. The Milwaukee's got an anti-vibrational design that seems to work because it's a lot kinder on the joints than the saw I've got.
