I have a soft spot for small reciprocating saws.These saws are mini-chain saws and come with all the fun of usingone.

DeWalt DW304PK Reciprocating Saw Review
by Lorenz Prem on 09-11-2012 2:16 pm

The DW304PK is the smallest of DeWaltreciprocating saws. It lacks a few of the features of its biggerbrothers, but it is still a very powerful and capable reciprocatingsaw.

I have the DW303, the predecessor to the DW304PK. Its nearlyidentical to the new DW304PK. Let's take a look at what makes theDW304PK work.

The Design

The DW304PK has a fixed, metal head married to a 10amp motor.It's clearly a tool for demolition rather than the finesse. Theblade can be mounted either vertically or horizontally

Recent Reviews
"Drill/driver OK, reciprocating and circular saws are junk. No torque, circular saw won't cut thru a 2x4, reciprocating won't cut a 4x4 without bogging."
"Indeed, this one is the best 12V driver. Get it. You will not be disappointed."
"I use this one for heavy work. It can do it all. None better."
"Love this Router"
"Great driver with only minor issues. App is limited. The last gen is almost as good, yet a lot cheaper."
"This saw replaced a Delta Unisaw in my shop. It's rock solid, powerful, and well made. Fence rivals Biesemeyer or Unifence. Worth the price, IMHO."
"Excellent performance but tough to use at high speed with soft wood, tends to drive too deep before impact kicks in."
"This is my only true drill. The key-less chuck works flawlessly as does the power/speed switch which is handy for drilling various density material."
"A quality sander that performs well day in and day out. Not the best dust bag, that's minor for me. Fits well in my hand and no fatigue with prolonged use."
"A good option for those looking for their first saw, or those looking to upgrade from a "portable" job site saw. Buy a decent blade and you'll be happy."
