Typical Applications

Cordless Reciprocating saws are also known as sabre saws and are generally used in demolition and construction industries, reciprocating saws don't provide the cleanest or most accurate cuts but allow for a quick and efficient way of cutting through materials due to the powerful push-pull action produced by the internal motor. Models with variable speed settings provide more control when cutting, allowing faster speeds on soft materials like wood and slower speeds for hard materials like metal. Thanks to easy blade change mechanism and a wide variety of blades available on the market, cordless reciprocating saws can be used for cutting e.g.:
• aluminum
• steel
• wood
• stone
• tiles
• PVC pipes
• brass pipes


We advise the use of personal protection equipment during application, typically safety glasses, goggles & work gloves.
