.. a brushless cordless recip saw is one of those tools you can really use especially if you live in a house and have to care for a yard. I've used a circular cordless saw on trees they are good for some things but nowhere near as versatile as a recip saw is. The advantage of a circ saw is the blade spins one direction instead of 2 directions the recip saw does which on smaller limbs you have to hold onto the limb with a good grip else it will shake it out of your hand.
Quick followup on my DeWalt compact recip saw; Used it Monday evening with a carbide nail embedded wood 9" blade (6/9 TPI)
All I can say is that out of all my tools, not including my Stihl blower __ it is the most useful tool I own.
Was able to get into overgrown areas and just have at it :devil: & put waste to some things that needed to go away.
True joy in doing what could have been a real hassle.
It slots perfectly between a chain saw & bladed brushcutter = FTW
