By Stephanie Lai
June 27, 2013 – Dewalt introduces its new reciprocating saw (DWE357), which features a compact configuration to help provide control and balance. The reciprocating saw weighs 6.8 lb. and is 14.5 in. in length. The DWE357 features a 10A motor—with 2,800 strokes per minute and a 1 1/8-in. blade stroke length—designed to help professionals work longer and experience less fatigue, says Dewalt. The DWE357 includes four-position blade clamp and fixed/pivoting shoe, which allows users to position the blade in horizontal and vertical positions. The pivoting shoe provides the leverage necessary to complete different applications, making the saw versatile particularly in flush-cutting applications. The saw also includes a keyless blade change feature that allows users to replace the blade more easily.
