      A Powerful Recip Saw
      Model 27224 is a tough reciprocating saw that can easily drive the longest and coarsest of blades. I have used mine for cutting the tops off of many 4X4 and 6X6 fence posts, and I have used it successfully for a non-conventional application: When excavating for fence posts or a sidewalk, use the coarse blades to cut the 2 or 3 inch roots that may be in the way - it beats only working with an axe or breaker bar. I have a small recip saw that I use for precise remodeling frame modifications. The 27224 has a rotatable cutting head (a scroll saw feature) that may be useful for specialized cuts, and it will clearly takeout essentially any conventional wooden structure,. With hacksaw-type blades, the 27224 will cut through nails easily. This is a large, well-built recip saw.

      powerful, but head tends to `spin`
      if performing a cut with alot of vibration, it pops out of the locked head position setting and the head will then spin independent of the body.

      Alright. Not Great.

      I needed a reciprocating saw after my ancient Black and Decker started smoking and tripping breakers. This seemed like a pretty good value for money, especially after I got it on sale for less than even the 10 amp Craftsman model. I have two main gripes: First, it seems kinda loud. It is noticeably louder than my cordless Milwaukee Sawzall (and not as powerful as my battery powered saw). If it makes all this racket, it should slice through just about anything, but it struggles to take apart pallets, which is the main reason I bought it for. Maybe I'm using garbage blades, but I've used quite a few different ones and the results are the same. Two, and the real reason I gave this saw two stars, is the rotating head. Due to the exceptional quality control at the Chinese factory, the switch that keeps it locked (which, for some reason, is the same switch that turns it from orbital sawing to regular) doesn't stay where you left it. So you're sawing along and turning the saw, and the head goes another direction, which you did not intend. I cannot fathom why anybody would want the head of their reciprocating saw to rotate. Nobody scrolls with a reciprocating saw. That's what a jigsaw is for. Aside from that, its not a bad value for the money. Even at full price, its still quite a bit less than a Milwaukee Super Sawzall. But there's a reason that people tend to call all reciprocating saws a "Sawzall."

      decent for price

      Has handled everything power wise. Blades that came with it are weak and dull quickly, bend easy. Carrying bag is good. I got mine 2 years ago and only used it a handful of times on household tasks. blade holder is now loose and is difficult to make a straight cut, because it wants to twist a little, even in the lock position, and the low quality blades don't help. Should have gone with the non-rotating version instead.

      saws all/360

      i recently bought the craftsman 360 saws all , i used it wice, only for a few minutes, the second time i used it , it broke, the head were the blade goes in snapped, and i had to use my finger to pull the spring back to get the blade out,  after one month of owning it, using it twice and it breaking , it also did not cut very good, very slow and no power , i have always been a craftsman fan , i do not recomend the 360 reciprocating saw , they are junk, they should recall them and build a better, more rugged one. i only bought it for the 360 option , in wich you rarely use, the best saws all is the milwaukie,  10 times better/stronger and doesnt feel like a toy, if someone needs a saws all, go with millwaukie.

      Review of Craftsman Professional Reciprocating Saw

      I have come to trust the quality Craftsman tools, particularly hand tools. With regard to Craftsman's Recipricating Saw I find the machine adequate for home and small worksite applications. I have a little bit of a hard time characterizing the saw as "professional" grade. I also have a Porter Gable RS and it is a true heavy duty machine. Of couse there is price, the Craftsman was around $100.00 and the Porter Gable was $800.00. So on the whole, I think I made a good purchase and as long as I don't expect more of the saw than it is capable of giving, I expect years of satisfaction.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
