    I saw a few days ago that amazon.com should get in stock and it would be ready for shipping on 08/06 but it changed again to 1-2 month shipping.

    Its a great powerful tool – I was able to test it out at World of Concrete.
    Bosch might calls it compact recip saw in comparison to the regular style of recip saws.

    But I will definitely add it to my arsenal 😛

    It makes the 12V look like a kids toy. 😛
    Be nice when it does actually hit the market.

    The grip style looks very handy. I don’t normally use a recip saw but that looks worthwhile to add to the tool chest.

    The Bosch 12V pocket saw has the same style grip and it is really nice. Looking forward to getting the 18V version for more power.

    I really like the 12v saw, but it’s underpowered…obviously a downfall of the voltage available. While I’m sure this one will be much more powerful, I’m not sure I’d buy this one over a full sized reciprocating saw.

    I was going to buy the 12v version soon. Wanted it for trimming drywall and small stuff. It’s not underpowered for that stuff?

    you are right with that. it does look like a toy.
    and it cuts like a toy compare to the 18V brother 😛
    I did test cuts on a 2×4 and its day and night between those two in cutting speed.

    pretty sure it will do just fine for it.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    I have 2 of the one handed smaller recip saws. One has a power cord on it and one has a 18volt battery. I should sell the corded one, I never use it.
    I do find them useful for smaller jobs.

    #552854

    nice, it does look like a beast of a machine.

    A beast huh? That’s a bit of a stretch I think. Isn’t it supposed to be a “compact” saw, meaning less power than the full size reciprocating saw?

    LOL, Wrong saw, now that teal one that Kevin owns the beast. I still want to see that in operation.

    It’s perfect for drywall and PVC pipes. In fact, that’s about all I use it for. I mostly reach for it when I need a small tool to do the cutting or don’t want to go the manual route. I really wish it had an orbital function..this would make it cut faster, but I don’t think it is powerful enough to support it.

    For me having this option fits. I have the full size one but really enjoy the small powerful tools as well.

    That’s good to hear. Last week we were setting panels and kept needing to cut a few little things here and there of the backer plywood on the wall. We kept grabbing my 18v big sawzall jokingly saying it was the finish sawzall, errr recip saw, but this thing actually is like a finish recip saw.

    Exactly which is why I want one.

    Who doesn’t! I’d love a smaller saw that still has power, but it usually doesn’t work that way.

    It’s mostly the convenience of only needing one hand. I already have the 12v and full size 18v so don’t really have a reason to get this, but if I didn’t have the 12v, I’d jump on it.

    The 18V compact recip saw is on my list but I will also grab the 12V pocket saw in the next few month

    I have a 18 volt mini recip saw and see no reason to get the 12volt. With the variable 2 triggers I can do very small work with it.

    In your case Dirty I agree. Packing in multiples of the same tool just to fill a niche adds to the weight and time to get everything on site.

    Awesome congrats. You should write a review on that being one of the first to get one.

    This would be handy for really tight areas. Not sure how quickly it would cut through square steel.

    The band saw would be a much better option for square steel.
