Summary: It is surprising to me how powerful this tool is. It will cut anything and the battery last fairly long. A second battery is a good idea. A dead battery will charge before a fresh battery expires.
Summary: This Sawzall is good for cutting pvc. I'm trying to think what else it would be good for but I'm at a loss. Cannot cut galvanized pipe, steel, etc. I tried to cut a 1¹¼" galvanized drain line before and it took me about a half hour and 4 fully charged batteries to do so.
