Excellent Product
Per previous warning about the blade not clamping into saw I took the care to make sure it inserted correctly. The clamping is different as it twist around but was not difficult to get blade in. It was used to trim some branches before the cold settled in for the Season and worked very nicely. Very well made and seems to have the quality Sears is so well known for.

Hazard!
I had the same problems with blades falling out. I just bought this today, and it took less than 2 minutes to have problems with it. I thought other people writing the bad reviews were just putting the blades in wrong - no, this product really has problems. Not only does the blade fall out, but one time it flew up and almost hit me. This is not just a piece of junk, this is a hazard and should not be sold!

Decent Reciprocating Saw for the price

This reciprocating saw is decent -- it has OK power and is relatively light weight, however there are other good options out there as well. I had gotten this for a very good price however normally you can spend a few more bucks and get something else with more features (like a 12A reciprocating saw, rotating handles, etc). The ergonomics of this reciprocating saw aren't the best -- a pistol style grip works much better.

easy to use, works great

I have been using this saw to cut the branches off my trees and it has worked wonderfully. The blade is really easy to install and lasts a while. I use a long extension chord to reach my tress and have had no problems.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Design flaw - blade pops out.

Like several of the other reviews mentioned, there is a design flaw where blade pops out while in use. I saw the other reviews prior to purchasing and thought other folks might have gotten a dud. Long and behold, it worked fine at first cutting through 1-2 inch tree branches and a fiberglass panel. Once it got to something heavier duty with more friction on sides of the blades like cutting wood embedded nails on a door frame, the blades pops right out every 2-3 seconds. Tried it with 3 different blades and the same problem occurred. Quite disappointing, but luckily Sears took it back for a full refund as it was under 30 days.

Saw for easy handling

I purchased this saw to cut small branches and trees in my yard. An older person is able to handle it with little difficulty. It is better than a chain saw and better chances of not getting injured especially people who are taking a blood thinner such as I.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good deal for the price.

Decent unit for the price. Perfect for minor jobs around the house. The only negative is that it is heavy and the unit vibrates a lot... but overall a good machine for a homeowner for moderate use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So far ok...

I have only used this once since purchasing. I trimmed 1-2 inch branches on a tree. Worked good. As others mentioned, the blade came out 1 time. The blade is hot to the touch after use. Don't get burned. Hope to use again on larger branches soon.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
