Hitachi's CR13VBY 12 Amp reciprocating saw features a patented technology called UVP (User Vibration Protection). The adverse health effects to a user from vibration produced by power tools is a hot issue being addressed at this time. Hitachi's UVP technology reduces the overall vibration produced by the motor and therefore drastically lessens the vibration transfer to the user of the tool. A counterweight mechanism reduces full-load triaxial vibration by over 65%. A swing cutting mechanism located near the blade lessens the "rebound" effect that is normally created from a traditional orbital action cut. In addition to less vibration, the CR13VBY produces a faster cut in steel and wood as compared to competitive models.
  • User Vibration Protection (UVP) technology incorporates a counterweight mechanism that reduces full-load tri-axial vibration by over 65% significantly reducing vibration transfer to the user
  • 12Amp motor provides aggressive power thanks to 1370 Watts, resulting in a faster cutting speed and higher efficiency on the job
  • Variable speed dial and trigger allow the user to adjust the cutting speed optimally for the application for less waste and more control
  • 2 mode cutting mechanism- straight mode and "swing" mode that produce significantly less rebound effect as compared to traditional orbital action for a more efficient cut in wood materials
  • Tool-less blade change with a simple press of a lever for quick replacements
  • Stroke length of 1-1/4" at 0-3,000 SPM resulting in rapid cutting performance
  • Constructed with a triple seal design to protect from dust and debris generated during use- also protects from water waste when cutting into pipes
  • Durable front cover is made from double molded elastomer and plastic to protect from heat and prevent slippage
  • Ergonomic shape and slip/heat resistant grip are easier to handle and make it easy to use all day

    Saw was in good shape, although it came without any blades. Case was a little abused. Great value, great saw.

    I have used the saw several time and have found it easy to use and powerful and rugid enough to do what I need. I have been hesitatn about purchasing reconditioned products but so far this one has proven to be all that I wanted and would expect in a new saw.

    Very good saw with nice and easy blade release. I have never liked the case Hitachi supplies it bends the cord too tightly and has no place for the blades to be confined to, so I basically throw it away and use my old metal TIGER saw case that has a compartment for blades and is easier on the cord.

    This saw is tough as nails! It takes the sweat out of tear out work and when needed can be a precision cutting tool.

    Saw cuts very aggressively. But the blade wobbles side to side when trying to start a cut, and the shoe(the part you hold against the material) tends to fall out on occasion. The UVP works excellent though!

    The saw itself has good power but I don't think that the UVP system really makes any difference. The blade release system is small and sometimes difficult to use. Compared to the Dewalt and Bosch recip saws I've worn through in the past I think it is a superior saw.
