What other people say:

“I charged the battery then cut the lower part of a small tree, it was pretty hard.
My previous B & Q reciprocating saw just couldn’t cut it, pathetic! My De Walt powered straight through the stump even! Yes, it was tough and I had to change batteries after the fourth cut, but it was all so easy.”

And another:

“I decided it was time to move from mostly corded to all cordless tools, So I spent a lot of time reading reviews about all the different makes, I have never been a fan of the yellow peril DeWalt but was talked into buying the 18V XR Li-Ion 4 Ah Reciprocating Saw, it is without a doubt a great bit of kit and does exactly what you would expect and want from a tool and more!, it never seems to struggle with any tasks asked of it and the batteries have a great working life span between charges, I was so impressed all my tools are now from the 18V 4 Ah XR range.”
