Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best tool Compact, light weight and power. Easy to use and to interchange blades

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and versatile. Very powerful yet lightweight tool that makes short work of sawing metal livestock panels into shorter pieces. Any brand and type of blade that works with a Sawsall will work in this tool. The lighter, more compact size makes it more versatile than a regular Sawsall and less tireing to operate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It gets it... Its got more power then you think. Does well with demolition work. The only draw back is anything less the a 5.0 battey is going to die quick. Awesome saw

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute, but thats where it ends.... First let me say I've been a makita guy forever and thats not changing, and this little saw has all the quality I've come to expect from makita but if your expecting to do sawzall stuff with it then keep looking, it may be ok for pruning or some light specific cuts for plumbing or AC installation but thats it. I actually returned this saw because the cutting performance was almost non existent while the vibration and shock in the hand was greater than any full size recip saw I've ever tried.

What is the blade cutting depth min. and max? And does it come with blades? If so, what lengths? I need to cut through 3/4" particle board under my sink, but I don't want to cut deeper because I don't know what is under there.
Asked by: Monica
The Makita oscillating tool TM3010CX1 Multi?Tool Kit is a better choice. Nice and easy to control. A plunge cut with a reciprocating saw would be jumpy and difficult in a small, confined area.

Does this saw come with a carrying bag?

Asked by: Billy
No bag. The 15" zippered husky bag fits nicely. No hard case like my older 18-volt LXT cordless drill and impact tool. My Makita reciprocating saw came inside a small cardboard box and comes with instructions and papers and 2 blades. No battery.

Can this sub-compact saw be used with 1 hand like the M18 Hackzall

Can this sub-compact saw be used with 1 hand like the M18 Hackzall
Asked by: DB22
Its a 2 handed reciprocating saw. Its approximately 3.3 lbs lighter than my 13 amp corded reciprocating saw.

Can you use long blades on this saw? What is the longest blade length that can be used?

Asked by: RG
I use a corded 13 amp reciprocating saw for longer blades. To prolong any tool's life and prevent premature failure. Use high quality sharp blades and use the correct TPI for the material being cut.

what length of stroke.

Asked by: Sunday
It has 13/16" blade stroke and 3000 strokes per minute Just an opinion or theory. The 13/16" blade stroke seems to produce less vibration than 1 1/4"
