A reciprocating saw, or sabre saw, is a heavy duty power tool that is commonly used in construction and demolition work. It has a large blade that resembles a jigsaw blade, which is moved in a pushing and pulling motion. Some recip saws also have an up and down motion, called “pendulum action”, which creates an oval shape that is good for making quick cuts in wood.
A reciprocating saw, or recip saw, is appropriate for cutting many materials including wood, brick and metal, provided the correct blade is used. They tend to make more quick and rugged cuts, and are therefore better for larger tasks earlier on in the processing of the material.
