You've never used a recip saw like this!

Sears sent me this one-handed reciprocating saw back when the snow was still on the ground and to be honest I just don't have much of a need for a reciprocating saw. My corded one has been out of the bag maybe three times in the last five years.


But yesterday I got around to fixing a small platform (deck) at the back of our property. This platform sits under a huge elm tree and it makes a nice quiet seating area to just enjoy the wildlife. Last fall I added a 4 foot by 8 foot section of used deck to my small platform and I just needed to fill in and trim a couple of missing boards.


Now, I never use my corded reciprocating saw because (one) it's too noisy, (two) it's too heavy, (three) the blade fits in upside down from what I think it should be, (four) it is full speed or nothing. It usually does more shaking of the wood I'm trying to cut than cutting. I hate the thing. I grabbed some cedar decking and ripped it to the width I needed to fill in the gaps using the table saw in the shop but I forgot to measure how long I needed the strips. I grabbed a hand saw and then before I got out of the garage remembered I had this cordless reciprocating saw in the basement. I was already taking the Craftsman 19.2 C3 Impact Driver with me so I already had the battery I needed. Why not? Let's see if this saw is better than my old corded one.

Watch the video to find out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYyHsxc3qWs (Cut and paste this link into your browser)

Yes, this saw works great. I like the variable speed. It will go slower than any other reciprocating saw I have used. It's quiet ... much quieter than my old corded version. I like the weight and balance. Even with the triple capacity lithium battery attached the saw was well balanced and could easily be used with one hand. And most of all it's powerful. After I finished my deck I used it around the property to prune a bunch of limbs off of trees in the back yard. It always had enough power to handle my 10 inch pruning blade!


In summary: I like this saw a lot more than the 11574 C3 cordless saw that comes in the 19.2 volt combo kits. When your 11574 quits (and it has a history of not lasting too long) I highly recommend that you replace it with this saw.


I like it a lot more than my old corded reciprocating saw. I particularly like the smooth variable speed and the ergonomic grip. It is powerful enough to do all the tasks I need it to and lightweight enough that I can use it all day.


I highly recommend this saw. I know I will buy one of these for myself soon. I will use this saw a lot more than my old corded version.


Need To Know:  19.2 v C3 Reciprocating Saw. This is an add-on to the C3 line. It does not come with a battery and charger. Sears assumes you already have a 19.2 volt drill or another tool that came with a battery. If you don't have any of these 19.2 volt tools and want this tool I suggest you purchase the 19.2 v C3 High Capacity Lithium Battery and 19.2 v C3 4 Port Charger. There is a cheaper way to get a battery and charger for this saw but once you own it, I know you will quickly add on more C3 tools. In the long run buying the triple capacity battery and 4 port charger now will save you money later on.

NO BATTERY INCLUDED - EXTRA $80 FOR BATTERY & CHARGER
This item comes with no battery and the battery and charger are an extra $80. NOT A GOOD DEAL!

Great Tool

Already owning a DeWalt corded recip saw, I wanted to try the one- handed 19.2v from Craftsman. It's solid and well built. Much less vibration than the 2-handed 19.2v recip saws. Smooth and positive variable speed trigger, fast when you need speed. Precision cuts. Have cut 3+ inch tree branches with pruning blade with ease. Makes fast work of steel stakes and PVC pipe. One of the best 19.2v tools from Craftsman!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

One of my favorite tools...

Have owned this for over a year--love it. Works great--hope Sears keeps this in their line-up for when this one wears out. Use it for all kinds of projects. Cuts well (with the right blade for the project). Decent battery life. Would highly recommend this.

Nice cordless electric saw for cutting metal and wood

This came in handy for me when I tried to replace my old basketball backboard and rim with a new one I bought from Sears. This saw will actually cut through those old rusted bolts and nuts without requiring specialized equipment to open them. And it works great with the rechargeable lithium ion battery also available from Sears so you don't need to run those long extension cords to where you need to get the job done.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Handyman's saw

This is a great saw for doing odd jobs around the house. Enough power to prune tree branches and cut 2x4's. Good balance to use one handed on a latter..

I would recommend this product to a friend.

worth purchasing

after reading the reviews from otehr users, this convinced me to finally purchase this. I am glad I did. easy one handed use. Using the 19.23 lithium battery gave this saw plenty of power for what I needed (trimming medium size branches)

I would recommend this product to a friend.
