How I Came to Love the Reciprocating Saw
I wasn’t always a member of the a handyman craft. Oh sure, years of building things around the house started me on the road to a little side business, but those appointments, which could keep me busy during my downtime, or render decent living, could only go so far toward achieving the most extreme DIY missions.
I can’t remember the last time I needed to break a cement block with my bare hands, but I can recall the last time I needed to power my way through metal flashing, roof sheathing, and a pallet needing an attitude adjustment.
Though my hands are strong, when it comes to DIY, I prefer to use my DEWALT cordless reciprocating saw. Let’s talk stealth for starters. Can you see me dragging a cord and looking for an outlet when I’m advancing on an enemy or clinging to a roof? Not gonna happen. Cordless is the only way to go.
And what about one-handed maneuvers in potentially compromising positions? I can change a blade on my DEWALT saw, with either hand, in the dark, with my eyes closed, while hanging from my fingernails at the top of a 79-story elevator shaft. Let’s be brutally honest here. There are not many tools you can say that about. Well, and okay, the shaft was only 34-stories high, but still…
Is there anything more annoying than pulling the trigger on that power tool and hearing nothing but a whine or a whimper? That is totally unacceptable during a life or death home renovation crisis. Haven’t had one of those yet? Oh, you will. That’s when you will be the lone survivor because you packed the extra charge of DEWALT 18-volt batteries.
I would never buy a tool that didn’t come with all the right accessories. I not only want my reciprocating saw to look good when I’m wearing black, but I also like the option of changing things up for many different do-it-yourself events. You will find DEWALT has you covered. Whether you’re looking for a reciprocating blade that is just a bit more sleek and sexy, say for when you’re trying to impress #MrSilverScott, or you are just sick and tired of mowing down a wall with that bland white blade, no worries. Go ahead and treat yourself to a bright, shiny yellow accessory. Hey, yellow looks good on you.
