Cordless Reciprocating Saw


Coming soon from Ryobi is the PSBRS01B, which is a one-handed, cordless, brush-less reciprocating saw that is 31% more compact and 24% lighter than the company’s P516 model that has a brushed motor. The saw runs at 0 to 3,000 strokes per minute and has a fairly aggressive 5/8″ stroke length so it can handle most materials. There’s an on-board LED work-light, a quick release button for easy blade changes, and an adjustable pivoting shoe. It comes with a six-inch wood cutting blade and a three-year warranty. No word yet on when it will be available (or the price, although we’ve seen mention of $99 for the bare tool), but they usually announce new tools within a few weeks of release.
