what's your experience? which one do you like best? I dont want to spend more than 100 bucks on one.

i was going to say a sawzall (milwaukee) but thats out of your range. I would check out Ryobi. I have no first hand expierence with them but my angle grinder by Ryobi has held up great over the last 3 years of non-industrial use.

the sawzall is one of two i have had expirience with. the sawzall is at least 15 years old. the other one was a craftsman, it lasted almost a year.

Porter Cable Tiger Saw. I've built houses (rough carpentry.) Porter Cable Saws work well and last long. I've also used Milwaukee Sawzalls. They're good too, but I'd take the Porter Cable.

Im a framer and i think milwakee recips suck ass. They have a short stroke and dont cut very fast. In the garage they rock though because of the same reason. You can make more precise cuts and they dont wanna jump around so much.
For wood the bocsch rs sereis kick ass and are tough. For metal cutting. Pipe tube fenders and shit milwakees are better. The milwakees also have all steel gears. That's theyre selling feature. In 10 yrs i have never had a prob with platic geared recips though..

I bought my Sawzall 17 years ago, used. I've beat the hell out of it and it refuses to die.

You can get a nice 10 amp dewalt for $89 at amazon.


My last Dewalt just died after 10 years of major abuse. Motor still runs but it keeps jamming.
