    Default Black & Decker

    Has anyone ever used the Black & Decker Reciprocating Saws before? My department just purchased one. It is only 14.4 volts. Just wondering if anyone has ever used one for extrication or anything.

    I have not seen or used the Black and Decker saw but a 14 volt unit should be able to do a fair amount of work.I believe Black and Decker owns DeWalt by the way. Remember most if not all cordless saws are less powerufl than say a tiger saw. Tiger saws are 11amps and the 18 volt Dewalt equivicate to about 4 amps. It is not always about power, blade Stroke and Strokes per minute have a lot more to do with efficiency than actual power.

    thanks, we bought one for $40 and figured if it can't be used for extrication then we could use it for other things.
