Hilti WSR 18-A CPC

About $450, 8.2 pounds; Hilti

Got a gut reno on your hands? This is the saw for you. Big, brutish, and with the longest battery life, this saw is built—and priced—for pros who need corded power where cords can't reach.

The battery gauge is easy to spot, and the pivoting shoe has the smoothest action of the bunch. While we prefer a lever to release the blade, at least this collar is rubber-coated, so it's easy to grip with a gloved hand and won't burn your skin if the glove is off.

Fine print: Up to 3,000 spm, 1-inch stroke, 19 inches long, two 3.3-Ah batteries
