Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good demo saw Have used this for a few small things but recently had to do a lot of pruning and small tree removal. Worked really well, especially compared to by hand. Was even going at roots under the soil. Its brushed so went through quite a few battery swaps but for the price... well worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Base Saw This is a base reciprocating saw that DOES NOT have the on/off orbital action as described in the product description on homedepot.ca. Saw seems to work well (new).

Where is the orbital/oscillating on off switch? I see nothibg

Asked by: The Reverend
Hi There, Thanks for reaching out to us regarding the 18V Lithium-Ion Cordless Reciprocating Saw. I do not believe the R8646B has an on/off orbital switch, and that feature is only available on the brushless models. For further information, please contact RIDGID Customer Support at 1-800-474-3443. Thanks, RIDGID Canada Team.

It says in the description it has on or off Orbital Action. Is this a typo or how do you turn it on or off?

Asked by: Anthony
Hi Anthony, Thanks for reaching out to us. This 18V Lithium-Ion Reciprocating Saw has a switch located on the top of the tool. This switch can turn off or on the orbital blade action to provide endless cutting options on a large variety of materials. For more information on this product, please contact 1-800-474-3443. Thanks, RIDGID Canada Team.
