The kids gave me my old Dewalt reciprocating saw back. I think it was probably a 12A. It had been my dad's and then I inherited it when he passed away. It wasn't that old or terribly sentimental, but I thought it was cool that I was getting it back. They'd somehow managed to kill it. No idea how. They never mentioned that it was dead. They did tell me how they'd managed to saw through a 6" branch with a 12V Milwaukee which seemed weird to me (now I understand why).

Well, I went whole hog and got a Milwaukee 15A saw with orbital action. I took it out to the new home today and while I was there, I used it to clear/trim some live trees and shrubs. The biggest thing that I took down was a 6" pecan tree (holy moly that trunk was heavy, must be really dense wood). I can saw that the saw laughed at what I threw at it.
