My wife bought the R3030 Reciprocating Saw for pruning, after the sales people at Home Depot recommended the saw for that purpose. However, we noticed the manual says not to use it for pruning, and not to use pruning blades with it. I've seen many, many posts throughout the Internet from people saying they have used a reciprocating saw, including the R3030, for pruning. So, what's the deal? Why does Ridgid say not to use it for pruning? What are the dangers involved? How likely are they to occur? Should we ignore the warning in the manual and use it for pruning anyway?
