    I am curious to see the power difference between the Bosch 18 volt and the Bosch 36 volt .Also how much longer the 36 volt battery last over the 18 volt .

    Is the 36v sawzall much bigger than the 18v? It’s kind of hard to tell from pictures.

    what about a quick video of the 18v vs 36v cutting through something?

    Not really. The size difference is nominal. The 36V though is just slightly enough bigger where it won’t fit in an L-Boxx 2 where the 18V will.

    I’m not sure if the 18v will fit into an l-boxx2. Mine came in the L-boxx3

    Oops maybe it is the 3 then. Either way the 36V is a bit bigger than the 18V one and will not fit the 18V tray.

    The 18v does not fit in an L2 – at least, I have been unable to find any position for it to fit in an L2.

    Do you have a picture of the insert available? Does it fit at an angle or flat in the box? Just curious how the insert looks.

    I agree that the brushless is now key in any 18volt tool. Just so much more runtime.

    I don’t have a picture but it fits in diagonally with a ton of extra space

    There’s one thing we agree on. Maybe. You want to stay viable in the pro market when it comes to cordless, you need to offer a wide line of brushless models.

    After getting the bosch 18v sawzall I just wanted to share my thoughts on it here. First of all, it is a really big tool. It will take up a lot of space in your tool bag/box for sure. While I like that it has two speeds, the mechanism to change speeds and lock the tool feels pretty cheap and it’s in kind of an awkward position. The non adjustable shoe sucks because it is set really far out, which means you can’t really use the super short blades. You also have to get used to changing the blades because they kind of shoot out of the saw when released.

    One thing that I did appreciate was the smoothness of operation. It has a decent amount of vibration control, way better than the dewalt I was using before. It’s hard for me to guage battery life right now because I’m just using the 2.0 batteries. Overall I like the saw it just feels a bit underpowered for the size. Feel free to ask any questions you might have. I’m still thinking about doing a full review if there is much interest.

    Only thing I would change on your review is the blade eject mechanism. I like that it kicks out the blades. Comes in real handy when changing out hot hot blades.

    I don’t mind that it kicks out, it is actually kind of a nice feature. I just didn’t really expect it the first couple of times.

    Lots of good info on the 18v Reciprocating Saw
    here. My Reciprocating Saw has become obsolete and I need to sell it off. This Bosch recip saw looks to be a great option.

    I like that feature also. Comes in real handy and makes blade changing a snap.

    I thought that you were more into Makita for your 18v stuff?

    my sawall is a older one that won’t take the smart batteries and their new one is not brushless yet. I’m really digging the Bosch batteries with the power gage on it.

    Yep those can come in handy. Especially to see how much charge one has out of the box.

    Do your newer Makita have a battery gauge on the tools, I thought I heard someone say that they started putting the battery gauge on the tools for the Makita??
