  • Sawzall blade recommendation for cutting 4x4 PT and round fence posts?

    can anyone tell me what the best sawzall blade would be for cutting the above mentioned wood? I ordered some of the Ugly blades for pruning but not sure they are good for the posts above. If they are, good, b/c i just ordered one but if not what do you suggest? thx

      A demo blade will last quite a while and if you hit earth and dull the blade it will be cheaper than re-sharpening or replacing a chain saw chain.

        Can you just run a circular saw up one side and down the other? I prefer a rip blade for PT, and I REALLY like the Teflon-coated blades. If you're going with a reciprocating saw, I like a 6 tpi blade, but I don't like a variable pitch blade for PT. It's too slow and it can hang up more than a fixed-tooth blade.

          I have used the pruning blades a few times for this work. I have a bunch (50+) of PT landscape timbers used as edging around flower beds and they need to be replaced every few years. I use my cordless recip saw with a pruning blade, works fine. I have also used my cordless circ saw but battery life is not as good. I get more cuts out of a battery with the recip saw.
          "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
          John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
