Sorry WOOT, it’s few pennies cheaper on Amazon if you want the blade kit (Free shipping vs. $5 on WOOT). “Ships and sold by Amazon” is a plus too.

The reviews are OK

Bosch RS7 + RAP10PK

Oh hey. I own this :smiley:

I didn’t want to go the battery route with such a tool as I wasn’t going to be using it every day, but somehow keep stumbling across situations where I’d find a use for one.

With my infrequent use, a battery powered one (although awesome because or portability and speed of setup) would be dead before I got any miles out of it.

This one can sit in it’s case forever and be woken up when I need to massacre something.

It’s fine. No frills. Plenty of power.

This saw does a good job of cutting.However, prolonged use will be uncomfortable on your hand that holds the handle and trigger. Ergonomically it is poorly designed. I have to wear a leather palm glove to keep the handle from digging into my hand.

Yeah, there’s a reason why you see gloved hands in all of the photo shoots for almost all reciprocating saws. These things are brutes.

Rob.

Good reviews as I would expect from a Bosch tool. However, price wise this is not a great deal. It’s 99.00 at Home Depot with free shipping and if you have a coupon, buy on certain holidays or are military you’ll get it at 10% off. Not to mention that if you have an issue, the Home Depot return policy is hassle-free… I can say from experience that is not the case at Woot and I do buy a lot of items here. Likewise, if you can deal with a factory reconditioned product, you’ll find them available for 69.00. Nice tool but not a nice deal.

Seems to be the case far too often these days on Woot. If you’re not a ‘brand’ person and don’t care how long the thing lasts, you can pick up one for a third the price on Harbor Freight.

You might want to think about the task for the tools from Harbor Freight. The mini-router I used broke in 10 minutes light use, the Dremel style diamond bits are a real waste of money, the letter punch kits are brittle and spray chips at me occasionally. Other tools like pliers and even some breaker bars are good values for me.

The real thing to look at on a reciprocating saw is if it has an orbital setting. The orbit is fantastic for any wood, and tree limbs. Much faster, and that can be real nice when you are extended to reach something high or far away.

6 amp is meager for most any job. I’ve burned through two 6 amp

6 amp is meager for most any job. I burned through two 6 amp reciprocating saws from Sears (bought for the same reason - because they’re cheap) before I learned that lesson.

One needs to wear gloves when using most tools. I’ve owned several brands of reciprocating saws in my time and find that all of them are not the most comfortable tool to use. Consider that the only alternative is a simple hand saw.

By the way, every reciprocating saw I ever owned has long since found it’s way to the trash pile…except the Bosch. I bought my Bosch when I had hair on my head and it’s the only reciprocating saw I’ve ever owned that still survives today.

Agreed, woot needs to sweeten the deal especially for Texans. I’m going to have to pay taxes and shipping and not get it in two days and I’m 120 from the distribution center?!?!? Come on man!

I have this. It is easily in my top five tools I’ve ever picked up. I’ve cut through exterior and interior walls of my house with far more accuracy than the price indicates. If you’re looking for a reciprocating saw, this is a great choice.

What’s going on with Woot. This is no bargain at all. The same saw is currently selling at Lowe’s for $79. I feel bad for the suckers who look at the inflated MSRPs and think they are getting a deal. The Woot I use to know and love is no more. It’s just Amazon.

It’s one of those tools that you don’t really feel you can justify buying…until you own one. I have used it so much (& loaned it out) since I’ve owned mine. I’m a small size senior woman & I have no problem at all handling it. Metal blades, wood blades, multi-purpose blades — be sure to get them all!
