Let me start with the design of this saw. It doesn’t come with an out of the box design, similar design to other models. Nonetheless, the green and black color combination make it look really classy. There are more color options too, you can choose the one you like.

As you can see the image, the entire body is smoothly constructed, well-contoured curves and an anti-vibration handle.

With this design, you won’t get any finger ache or fatigue. This very reciprocating saw will allow you to work for a long period of time with no issue.


This Ryobi reciprocating saw can deliver 0 to 3100 blade strokes per minutes, the amount is really high.

The 3100 strokes per minutes are enough for the most cutting job, you can cut through most material (Wood, drywall, pipes, etc.) easily and smoothly with this Ryobi P514.

Comfortable grip

Unwanted slippage, fingers getting numb, sweating, these are common things that happen with most models when you work for longer periods. These things make it really uncomfortable and demotivating for people to work further.

But thankfully, those will not happen in this Ryobi 18v cordless reciprocating saw.

Because it comes with a molded grip which is specially designed for a long time working purpose.

The molded grip is so soft and will enhance the handling. And that means no accidental slippage will take place.

On the other hand, this grip will not lose its shape or become uneven with regular use. In short, this grip will uplift you overall cutting experience.

Adjustable Pivoting Shoe

In order to minimize the shocks and vibrations the could be experienced during cutting too deep, the Ryobi P514 Reciprocating Saw offers a pivoting shoe that is adjustable.

Which allows you to adjust the depth of the shoe according to the material you are going to cut through. Adjusting it perfectly would offer users to use this saw with less effort and will have super efficiency.

Variable speed trigger

One suggestion from my side is, if you are a newcomer, don’t pick a reciprocating saw that starts with full speed.

You’ll need time to adjust with the stroking speed of the reciprocating saw and most importantly, saws that start delivering faster strokes at the very beginning, establishing a cut is difficult with them.

And this Ryobi P514 starts giving slower strokes at the beginning which will help you an establish the desired cut and then you can increase the speed.

Easy blade changing

Changing the blade in this saw is very simple. Unlike others, this saw doesn’t require any tool to change the blade.

It comes with a blade clamp which holds the blade securely and when you need to change the blade you can easily lift up the clamp and change the blade.


This Ryobi P514 reciprocating saw is very lightweight. It weighs around 4 pounds without the battery. And 10 pounds after inserting the battery.

The lightness helps a lot to handle and control the saw during operation.

Because of the heaviness holding some saws straight is really tough and with this Ryobi P514, you don’t have to worry about such kind of issues.


Long corded saws make it difficult to work in different places, wherever you go, you have to look for power outlets first. As the name suggests, this reciprocating is cordless which will allow you to work anywhere you want.

On the other hand, as I said earlier, this saw is really lightweight so it will be easier for you to carry it in different distances.


This Ryobi P514 reciprocating saw comes with two different blades. One for metal and one for woods.

But depending on the materials you would be cutting, it would be better to purchase some extra blades.
