I heard a bunch commotion the other day from a few friends that have the new flexvolt recip saw that it stalls during wierd shit like cutting through wood with large nails or straight sheet metal then I saw this.

 

 

I think I can see exactly why this happened, it's clear from the video...the vibrations on the Dewalt is so great the battery was flopping around like cowboy in a rodeo, probably interfered with the connection long enough to stall the motor. 

 

Either way that was painful to watch.

yeah but i think dewalt could have done more with flexvolt, to me its just a recip saw, tbh most recip saws vibrate like hell, if it was losing connection due to to flopping around thats a very very big miss for dewalt. It might just be a faulty tool but im a but yeah im at a loss for words.

I was thinking the same thing, but I just can't imagine it being that poorly designed.  Battery contacts should always have enough pressure to maintain contact under vibration.  Dewalt does tend to have very loose batteries compared to others but that was really flopping around.  It's almost like the connection wasn't designed to handle such a large pack.

 

@wildroamer @MikeyB Toolpig did some comparisons of the Fuel, Flexvolt, and Makita on periscope but it was just random tests of a couple pairings on a different materials.  I think we all want an Oz Tool Talk review with splitscreen though :)

Has there been a comparison of the Mak with the Milwhacky?

Here's the URL for the scope:

..

It should play on PC but it probably works best on the app

Sounds like a bad tool or bs test. The nails are the easiest part on the saw and hardest on the blade.



I love seeing Milwaukee kick the pants off of yellow but this guy's a biased red user, used to watch his videos but he has such a boner for Milwaukee I can't take anything he does seriously, I mean he reviews their screw drivers for 10 minutes, I love my Milwaukee tools but they're not going to be the fastest at everything

Hahahaha though I would agree with Jimbo. The problem with those types of videos is it's easy to make a biased video and show skewed results. I'm not saying he did this but like every other one of his videos, I tend not to take them too serious. At least he got rid of that porn star intro.

Do you remember the Aerosmith video where they show the guy talking to a chic on the phone with a really sexy voice and he hangs up and they show her and she's a big old swamp moose?

Sorry but that sparky video was quite possibly the most obnoxious thing I've ever watched. I get it, it's like your being a sports announcer. Never again. I don't think anyone was really expecting a DeWalt to beat the original king. We were all hoping, but our hopes were not that high. That being said the 20v reciprocating saw and Bosch 18v cut apart exhaust systems just as quickly as a fuel so they can all go eat a burlap bag of
