Great saw for the weight and price
I've used this saw for cutting old construction lumber, tree branches, plastic pipe, and metal. It works like a champ. Surprising amount of power for a cordless.

One of the other reviewers noted that the blade falls out after a while. I asked a Makita rep about this and he said that sawdust can get into the blade opening (sawing overhead) and this prevents the blade from going in all the way (even though it seems secure). I have noticed this, but blowing it out with compressed air makes it as good as new. The blade mounting style is superior to my Milwaukee sawzall. On the Makita you rotate the blade lock 45 degrees and it clicks open and stays there. Then you insert the blade with one hand and it automatically rotates back to lock the blade in - so much nicer.

Yes, it uses all the standard blades.

Well worth the price.

almost as good as the corded
this is a good tool. I own a corded makita reciprocating saw and it has a bit more power but for a battery tool it's close.I have a friend that has the dewalt sawzaw and the makita is a better tool

Will not hold the blade
I have owned Makita products for years. I would like to say several, but due to the fact they last so long you do not need several. One last for years. I still have an ald 7.4v drill that still works, though the batteries are weak. What do you expect for a 8 year old drill. It really bums me out to have to give this saw only one star, and that is only because it is a Makita. Battery is great, light weight, durable, but will not hold a blade for squat. After it first use the blade kept spitting out. I returned it to a Makita sevice center. This is a nother reason for only one star. After 3 months, I finally got it back. No difference. It still will not hold a blade. I am completely disapointed with the quick change blade holder. My saw came with the kit. If you are looking for a kit, get one without this saw and then go buy a different brand reciprocating saw, perhaps Hitachi. Until Makita gets a clue and fixes this flaw and perhaps do a better turnaround in the service depatment area I will have to look elsewhere for a reciprocating saw that will hold a blade. But I will still buy their drills, impacts, and circular saws.

A+++ Way to go - Great Portable Saw
First off, if you put this side to side with a corded super Sawzall, the Sawzall will win hands down. For what it is, the Makita is a truly amazing product.

Some quick points / comments:

Never had any problems with changing the blades and I regularly get mine full of mud using it with a long blade to cut out tree roots.

The Batteries last about 12 minutes if your using it really hard, and they get very hot and take 30-40 minutes before they are charged again, due to the additional time required to cool them. If your going to really use this saw hard on a regular basis, buy more batteries.

I used this saw with a 12" blade in it to cut down a 47 year old spruce tree when my chain saw wasn't available. It was over 15" thick. Took the saw a while, but it did it.

I've cut metal, plaster, metal lath, 4x4's, lots of conduit, lots of tree trimming / pruning, etc. It's really worked well on all of it.

One suggestion, you get what you pay for in terms of blades. I think the Bosch blades are some of the very best. Lenox blades are also very good, but tend to warp from the heat during heavy use more than the bosch blades do. The Milwaukee blades are pretty decent.

It likely won't replace your super sawzall for really heavy demo work, but for everything else, I think it is just an amazing tool.

Nice saw with one major problem
I've owned many cordless reciprocating saws over the years and this would definitely be at the top of the list if it weren't for the fact that after using it for a short time the blades fall out while sawing! At first I thought I just didn't have them locked in properly, but I tried again several times, each time making sure it was completely locked in and it keeps falling out!!! This is exremely frustrating. Apparently I'm not the only one who's had this problem. I've tried different blades, but it just won't hold them. Otherwise it seems great! Good size, not too heavy, work light and plenty of power. I'm going to try to contact Makita to see if they have any suggestions.
