"DEWALT's Atomic Hand Recip Saw is making a name for itself"
DEWALT has always been a respected brand in my eyes and not much has changed with this DEWALT one handed reciprocating saw. Today I am sharing all the ins and outs of this saw, hopefully I can answer any unanswered questions you may have.
The Dewalt One Handed Reciprocating Saw comes packed with the DEWALT reciprocating saw, a belt hook and two saw blades. Battery is not included with it but the reciprocating saw is compatible with the 20V battery series.
Testing out the Dewalt Reciprocating Saw
This tool review was super exciting to do because I had a helper to help me out with testing it out. My dad wants to give her a try, so I thought why not review it together.
My dad had an older corded DEWALT model that he used, so we decided to compare the two and see which one he liked the best.
With the saw being one handed and compact, it was really easy to maneuver when cutting. This would be a great tool for someone with smaller hands. Compared to the older model, you can really tell a difference in the torque, the blade doesn't slow down during the cut and it really is a powerful little machine.
I wouldn't replace this with a full size reciprocating saw, but for quick jobs or jobs in small spaces, this compact saw would definitely be my go to.
We cut through some 1/2" plywood and also cu through some metal nails and it cut smoothy. My dad was very impressed.
Another feature I liked that I don't see often with reciprocating saws is its ability to stand up straight when sitting on the battery. Most reciprocating saws don't have the ability, you have to sit them on the side which sometimes results in them falling over, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this DEWALT Atomic Recip saw was different. Kudos DEWALT.

I really like the size of this tool. With it only 12.5" from front to back, it is easy maneuverable and easy to use with one hand.
Quick Change Accessory System
The quick change accessory system allows you to put the blade in seamlessly. Theres no guessing with this tool.
This seems to be becoming standard on most tools, but the LED light is always a great addition to help illuminate dark work spaces.
How It Could be Better?
I couldn't think of anything that I would want to see differently on this tool and that doesn't happen often, so I'm giving this DEWALT Atomic Reciprocating Saw a big thumbs up. I definitely love my new addition to the shop.
