Harbor Freight... you get what you pay for... I bought a sawzall it broke shortly after I started gutting my car. Ended up spending the money and bought a milwaukee. Thanks to the discount my wife gets a Lowes

We have the 18volt harber freight recip saw. Good saw for cordless work. We do central air and cut holes in floors every day. The ONLY saw to buy is Porter Cable. BIGG C

Hey 66jj how does the 14.4 work as far as changing tires? Not sure if I want to get it or the 18 volt.

John Deere also makes a cordless impact. I know a couple of people that have these and they well worth the $250 they paid for it.

If you use the Dewalt 14.4 you want to use it to tighten the lug nuts or sometimes it won't loosen the nuts.

We have a Snap-On 18v that works great. I agree with some of that Harbor Freight stuff, the recip saw I got from my wife for x-mass last year got tossed accross the shop (Monster Garage temper tantrum LOL) after only a VERY short time of use.
