After doing a ton of research on several 18V reciprocating saws, I stumbled across this 20V Dewalt DCS380P1 saw kit. My 64 year old right elbow gave out (tennis elbow) after using hand saws exclusively to cut down Brazilian Pepper trees in the wetlands surrounding our Southwest Florida home. I haven't used any of my chain saws because the vegetation is so dense, and the footing so uncertain, that I didn't want to chance having an accident with such a powerful tool. Lots of things can go wrong with a chain saw when used in tight quarters so I decided to be safe rather than sorry.
Even though I read some raving reviews about how good this saw kit is, I decided to order two additional 20V batteries so that I would have plenty of power to get a lot done before running out of juice. I also ordered a 5 pack of highly rated pruning saw blades in order to have the best set-up possible. On with the gloves, boots, long shirt, work pants, sunscreen, insect repellent and UV hat,...
This saw is more powerful, lighter in weight, and far more versatile than previous generations of the Dewalt line of Sawzalls. I owned the 18 volt old school version and it was alright. Still had lots of power. But this thing is a beast. Buy quality blades and you will not even have to own a chainsaw if you live in a residential neighborhood. I took down 10" wide trees and sawed them into sections, cut up thick brush, and still had life on the battery. Buying the P1 kit is well worth the money. You get the 5Ah battery and a charger that handles the 12v and 20v max batteries. Most solid cordless tool I've owned to date. And I've been in the skilled trades and construction industry for 20 years almost.
Tip: These saws only cut as well as what blades you put into them. Use name brand blades meant for the task they are labelled for. Long pruning blades for cutting trees and bushes, arched thick metal blades for cutting any kind of metal. Lenox and Bosch make the best blades...
Excellent tool for so many jobs. I bought it to cut 4x4 fence posts I had installed on my 5 acres. It handled the job easily. I was worried before I got it because some reviews said the tool was heavy and hard to handle. Well I am a 50 year old woman and I had no problems at all. I have sine used to demo my wood shed and prune larger trees. Absolutely love this cordless saw.
