Bostitch Orbital Reciprocating Saw Review – BTE360K

I can’t say I have a lot of experience with Bostitch power tools.  Really the items I have used over the years have been the nailers and compressors.  When it comes to compressors and nailers, I am a fan of Bostitch.  I found out these are being sold through Amazon and Walmart.  I am not knocking Walmart, I am just having a real hard time picturing professional tools being sold at Walmart.  I have always associated Walmart with selling no name tools and Black & Decker.  With that being said, I do know a lot of people buy power...

KOBALT 12 Amp Reciprocating Saw – K12RS-06A

KOBALT is relatively new to the power tool arena and the Lowes house brand is looking to take on Ryobi and RIDGID.  We got a chance to check out the Kobalt 12-Amp Keyless Variable Speed Corded Reciprocating Saw K12RS-06A. The 12 amp Reciprocating saw has a variable speed trigger that produces up to 2800 SPM with a 1 1/8″ stroke length.  For our tests we used the saw on some decking and general pipe cutting and it did the job just fine.  The saw weighs 9.3lbs and was able to tear through 4×4 posts with ease, especially with the 4...

Porter Cable Tigersaw Review

I love hearing Dan tell me how much work he can do.  I always joke around with him when he brags about how much he works.  I always tell him he can do the work of three guys, which the first time he was very excited about this comparison.  Then I had to tell him he can do the work of three guys named Larry, Curly and Moe.  I guess the reason I thought about this is because we are doing a review of the Porter Cable Tiger Saw model PC85TRSOK and this is designed for work. Porter Cable has...

Milwaukee Sawzall Power Tool Review

    Specifications – Milwaukee Sawzall Model – 6521-21 Amps – 11 Watts – 1,300 Volts – 120 Stroke Lengths – 1-1/4 in. Strokes Per Minute – 0 to 3,200 SPM Cord Length – 10 Ft. (Quick-Lok) Weight – 8.9 Lbs. Other Features Ball and Roller Bearings Orbital Action Linear Counterbalance (Reduces Vibrations) Tool Free Blade Change Adjustable Shoe Carrying Case This is one of my favorite power tools and that was one of the reasons we did a power tool review on the Milwaukee Sawzall.  I truly love everything about this and can not find one item to complain about.  The Milwaukee Sawzall is a power tool used to destroy, so it is even more important to buy a good quality tool as more accidents happen during tear down.  The body is put through more stress during tear downs, which can cause fatigue quickly without the right tool!  First impression when picking up the Milwaukee Sawzall power tool is “Solid”.  It has some good weight to it, but not to much, (8.9lbs) which helps in this type of application.  The rubber grips feel nice in your hands which means your hands will stay in place and not slide around.  The variable speed control is on the lower part of the “D” handle which is nice because your not going to accidentally change speeds.  Another item we noticed from...
