Reciprocating Saw Brand Recommendations


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello, I want to buy a reciprocating saw. 

There are many models and brands on Lazada. Most of them come without the battery and charger and are around B6000.

The largest battery I see is 18v, some sites seem to say 20v but I think the batt. is 18v.

Anyone have a recommendation? Thanks.

Do you want to use it for a few days or years?

And do you have or intend to buy any other tools with battery.

 

Personally I have Bosch tools with 18V. And any new tools I will likely buy from the same brand where I can use the same batteries and chargers. And depending what I buy maybe I buy just the tool without any battery because I have them already.

 

Obviously there are other good brands. And for above reason it is a good idea to stay with one brand.

 

And just in case someone things about battery powered tools as maybe not so strong. By now they have very strong battery powered tools which are lite and easy to use anywhere.

My power tool usage is light, just small projects like building shelves, benches, etc.

I have bought several "INNTECH" brand battery powered power tools (Sabre saw, drill, grinder) from Lazada and they have held up well.  Batteries seem to have held their capacity and output over the 3 years I have owned them.

 

Were I building something like a large shed or remodeling a dwelling, I don't think they'd be up to it.

Horses for courses.

I have all mains equipment. no charging, no pre planning to use

( charging issue again),  initial cost, just for DIY work.

works every time, no need for spare batteries, way more consistent power

for the duration of the job.

Plug it in,  is the way to go, for DIY around the house and garage.

Do people have battery powered welders !!!!!!!!!!!,

9-14 inch grinders,  table top saws. ?

If you can't plug it in,  ok get a battery or a motor on it for the job.

but bet they are few, for the DIY, guys.

Probably you won't use these powerful tools for DIY.

But the fact that they exist, and that professionals use them, should give you a good idea how good and powerful those tools are now.

I need no advice from you as i have used many power tools in the working environment.

That's why i understand the difference and needs for industrial work and DIY.

But feel free to not except my original post.

More fool you and your money and time.

you and others have been conned for many years as DIY boys.

Plug it in the mains, it works and is cheap.

Good day.

Very handy for odd jobs round the house. :coffee1:

I have brought it home on the weekends to do some metal repairs on my gate and fences.

 

So yes, very handy for odd jobs around the house.

I like battery tools  but I would not buy a battery powered reciprocating saw. I would buy corded, something like:

 

MAKITA JR3051TK เครื่องเลื่อยไฟฟ้าแบบเตะ | Lazada.co.th

 

 

Thanks for switching me back to those horrible power leads getting tangled up. But considering how much I'll use it, I think this one will do fine.

Thanks.

About Bt150,000.

 

Its good for small quick welds but for anything serious I drag out my MIG welder.

Got one of these,  does all for home use. very cheap and plugs in.

no expensive tips, no birds nests with wire feed, no gas bottle.

Plug and play with rods.

But does require a good skill level for the fag paper steel, they mostly use  here. :jap:
