Bosch Reciprocating Saw (Sabre Saw)What is a Reciprocating Saw?

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.

When to use a Reciprocating Saw

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.

How to choose a reciprocating Saw

At Kelvin Power Tools, we provide Makita, DeWalt and Bosch reciprocating saws. When deciding which recip saw suits you the best, you may want to consider these features:-

  • Motor: the power of the machine is very important to consider. Will you be using the tool very frequently for heavy-duty tasks? If so, look for a more powerful model.
  • Weight: depending on how often you use the tool and in what positions, you may need to consider how heavy it is. If you will be holding the tool up and cutting for long periods it will need to be lighter than if you were to be using it less often.
  • Blade changing system: the speed and ease of blade changing is important to consider, especially if you will be changing blades frequently.
  • Vibration levels: the higher the vibration levels, the less time you can use the tool. It is important to calculate whether you require special vibration dampening.

What about cordless?

Our sabre saw selection extends into our cordless range as well. Perhaps you will find what you need in a cordless version if flexibility is more of a priority than power. To see our cordless reciprocating saws just click here.
