  • Power Adapter for R884 Dual Voltage Reciprocating Saw

    Is there a power adapter for the R884 Dual Voltage Reciprocating Saw? I use the saw alot and sometimes find that I use up both batteries quickly. It would be nice to have the option of just plugging it in and using it.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    It's not particularly practical. Look at one of the plug-in AC power adapters for any one of your 12V household electronic gadgets... you'll see that they're typically rated for 1 to 3 amps. A cordless tool under full load can require 15 or more amps. Now think of how big the adapter and power cord would have to be.

        Pickup the better+affordable corded Milwaukee recip saw which typically runs 99 which is stronger and more cost-effective than building your own power adapter. Switch between either saw depending upon workload and available power supply.
