Dewalt DW309 reciprocating saw (Power rating


Hi:
I notice that the Dewalt DW309 reciprocating saw is listed both as 11.8 Amp and 10 Amp on Ebay, depending on which auction item you are looking at. Dewalt.com lists it at 11.8. Have they changed the saw, or the way power is measured?

Yes DeWalt changed the saw last year IIRC. Smaller, not so darn humongous any more and hopefully they have addressed the, "eject the blade while you are sawing feature". ;~) to keep up with the Jones family the larger amp rated saw is probably the latest one.
