Kelvin Power Tools has a wide range of cordless reciprocating saws on offer, manufactured by professional brands like Bosch, Makita, DeWalt and Metabo. Reciprocating saws are also know by a variety of other names including saber saws, sabre saws, recip saws and recipro saws, and they are commonly used in construction and demolition work.
Saber saws have a large blade that resembles a jigsaw blade, which is moved in a pushing and pulling motion. Some reciprocating saws also have a back and forth motion, called “pendulum action”, which creates an oval shape that is good for making quick cuts in wood. There is a wide variety of blades available, as sabre saws are appropriate for cutting many materials (including wood, brick and metal).
Advances in cordless technology mean that cordless saber saws are getting closer and closer to the power of their mains-powered counterparts. They are ideal for sawing in awkward spaces or when there is no easy access to a power source; some are manufactured with the sole purpose of being a miniature version of mains-powered recip saws. Features worth considering when choosing your cordless sabre saw include the motor, weight, grip areas, blade changing system, ease of use, and vibration levels.
