Ridgid R86447N

Price: $170; ridgid.com

Highlight: Works with both nickel-cadmium and lithium-ion batteries.

My two cents: "My least favorite cordless tool because it felt completely unbalanced, with all of the weight behind the trigger. It has plenty of power, and cut through the hardest materials with ease, but it's not a one-handed tool."

Specs: 18 volts, 4.12 pounds, variable speed up to 5,000 strokes per minute, ½-inch stroke length, built-in LED, lifetime tool warranty.
