More than once, my husband has said that our next tool purchase would be a reciprocating saw. We bought a lawnmower instead, and its rechargeable batteries (lithium-ion) are surprisingly lightweight. That got me wondering about cordless reciprocating saws.
The FineHomebuilding reviews are so old (2001 and 2005), I doubt they are all that relevant now. I'd like your opinion on reciprocating saws. Are they useful for DIYers?
I assume that cordless saws are less powerful and heavier/bulkier than corded. A bulky cordless might be less versatile than a corded saw, but of course it's a question of degree. Would you recommend cordless over corded?
