I bought it for use to trim tree limbs in the yard. it works well for that purpose. This is not meant to be a commercial all day use, for bigger limbs and trunks, I would have to let it cool down in case it over heats. But it is able to cut limbs down in 5 to 10 minutes that if done manually would have taken over 1/2 and hour and lots of work.

This is an alright saw. I'd recommend over battery equivalents, but wouldn't for any heavy duty work. Good to have around if you get it on sale. Nice ergonomics.
The worst craftsman purchase ever! Put blade in and pulled on it to make sure it was locked-in and it stayed in. But everytime I went to cut with it the blade would come out. I was really surprised with it being a craftsman product.

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.
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.
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.

My husband and i are new homeowners and we are trying to get some much needed tools,without breaking the bank. This purchase was an excellent value and it happened to be near fathers day. He used it right away,and loves it. I recommend it to anyone.

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.
