This saw is used for more arduous tasks like demolition work. It works with an up-and-down (reciprocating) motion. Some saws have a back-and-forth (orbital or pendulum) action that cuts more easily and quickly, minimizes blade wear, and aids sawdust removal from the cutting point. The blade and orbital setting changes vary by saw.
