How hard is it to change blades on the Cordless Reciprocating Saw?

Simply push and hold the blade clamp release lever at the cutting head to open the mechanism. Remove or insert a blade. Release the switch to activate the mechanism to keep your blade secure.
ATTENTION: For your safety by preventing accidental starts, we recommend using the safety lock off switch and removing the battery before attempting to change the blade. Whenever touching the blade, we recommend wearing gloves to prevent injury.

Will a battery-operated saw be powerful enough to get the job done?
The 20V Worx MAX Lithium battery included with the Worx 20V Reciprocating Saw is the same battery we trust to power the JawSaw, and our Cordless Compact Circular saw, among others, like the Hydroshot and Switchdriver. Since the battery can stand up to those high-powered applications, you can trust it to keep up with you in your reciprocating saw.
Higher capacity batteries and additional fast charging options are available.
