Summary: This is the first reciprocating saw that I've owned or used, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. However, I bought a Hitachi blower over a year ago and it has been very reliable, so I thought that this saw would at least be well made.
I have 3 Hitachi products. They are excellent. The only thing I dont like are the cases for the tools. I especially don't like the latches.

Summary: I own all Hitachi power tools. I have a reciprocating saw, a circular saw and a cordless drill. I have nothing but great things to say about all 3. I just purchased a house and I use my cordless drill every day. I finished my attic using my circular saw and was impressed with the product.
Summary: Bought the reciprocating saw to take down a rusty old chain link fence in a house we bought last year. I had never used one and the instructions were good and after the first section came down, it went very smoothly and quickly.
Summary: I bought this for home use and I just replaced the leaf spring hangers on my work truck and used this to cut the old ones off. I used it hard for a couple hours and six blades, it never let me down and worked very well for this purpose.
