We used this saw the other day and it is a great saw. I have always been a fan of the Sawzall, but this has sold me. Obviously it doesn’t have the power the V28 Sawzall has, but I love the blade change system. When the blade is in place, it stays in place, even if it binds. If you want to take it out, it will come out very easy. The best thing is you can change the blade with one hand. The locking system will lock into place and allow you to insert the blade easy.

Besides the blade system, this saw has pretty good power. Once nice feature is the balance in your hands. Oh yeah all most forgot, very low vibrations.

Agree completely. Never thought I would need a cordless sawzall but mine came in a kit when upgrading to Lithium Ion. Love mine, plenty of power when a cord is just too much hassle.
Good review.
