HYCHIKA 18V cordless reciprocating saw with 2 batteries for 60,79€/$59.27
The manufacturer HYCHIKA could already impress us with the 18V cordless screwdriver. The range of the Chinese manufacturer includes even more tools, for example the HYCHIKA 18V cordless reciprocating saw. Once again, it offers a decent price advantage over Bosch & Co. But also the same performance?
- HYCHIKA 18V cordless reciprocating saw
With up to 2,800 rpm
For the fact that HYCHIKA is a rather unknown and new manufacturer, they consistently pull off their design language. The reciprocating saw is also visually reminiscent of the cordless screwdrivers, even if the combo of green and red is of course inspired by BOSCH. The reciprocating saw measures 40 cm in length, 18 cm in height and 8 cm in width, with a weight of 2.11 kg with battery. The dimensions are intended without the saw blade inserted. To insert it, you have to loosen the snap lock, turn the holder at the front counterclockwise, and then you can tighten the chuck again. At the front of the saw sits a button for length adjustment, namely the saw blade can be adjusted in four lengths.
In the scope of delivery there are two saw blades for wood, both with a length of 150 mm, and two saw blades for metal, also with a length of 150 mm. The HYCHIKA 18V reciprocating saw, can be used for wood, PCW or metal. For sawing, there is also an LED light above the saw, so that you should also be able to saw in the dark. The trigger is variable, so you can adjust the saw speed between 0 and 2,800 rpm depending on the workpiece. The Reciprosaw from HYCHIKA offers a stroke of 22 mm.
The scope of delivery includes two 2,000 mAh rechargeable batteries, so you always have a spare battery available. With the included charger, one charge takes one hour. To be able to estimate the battery status of the saw, the manufacturer integrates three LEDs on the underside of the saw.
Sure, HYCHIKA is no Bosch or Makita, but the enormous price difference still makes the devices very interesting. We were satisfied with the two cordless screwdrivers in the test, but we have not yet been able to test the jigsaw. Compared to a BOSCH cordless reciprocating saw with 18V and 2,700 rpm, we have a price difference of over 80€! With HYCHIKA, you also get two batteries and the charger directly, the established manufacturers deliver the saws partly even without batteries.
