Reciprocating saws, or sabre saws, are ideal for making quick, rugged cuts in the early material processing stages of construction and demolition work. These heavy-duty power tools can be used on a variety of materials, including wood, brick and metal, provided that the correct blade is used.
Recip saws use a large blade similar to that of a jigsaw, 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 great for making quick cuts in wood.
Cordless technology has made great improvements over recent years, allowing these cordless sabre saws to get closer and closer to matching the performance of their mains-powered counterparts.
These cordless power tools provide excellent mobility and do not rely on mains power, making them ideal for use on work sites which have reduced access to electricity. There is also the additional safety feature of no trailing cables getting in the way of movement, which can pose a serious risk.
We also stock mains-powered sabre saws at 110v and 240v from Bosch, DeWalt and Makita. These versions might be a better solution if power output is a key priority.
