Customer reviewsToo much vibration and noise.
I was working with a Milwaukee 6515-20 Sawzall 18-Volt and a 18v Milwaukee drill that are 8 years old. They are working fine the batteries were getting expensive. My solution was, to treat myself and to buy Dewalt that was on sale. I use the saw primarily for pruning trees. I love shade trees and managed to plant over 200 on the property, the down side is some heavy pruning every few years. I went to work with the Dewalt DC387 the first thing I noticed was the noise then the vibration. Thinking it was the 9 inch wood cutting blade, I removed it and ran the tool no change. I picked up my old 8 year old saw and was happy less noise and less vibration. One day I used the Dewalt without gloves, after an hour I had developed a blister on the palm of my hand.
