Mike bought a new Porter Cable 20V Cordless Tiger Saw reciprocating saw, and is looking for a carrying/storage case for it.
I recently purchased a Porter Cable 20v bare tigersaw.
Sadly there is no case that can be purchased for it.
I was wondering since you use a lot of L-boxxes and dewalt boxes and such,if you could suggest one that is of appropriate size.
While I do use a lot of L-Boxxes and ToughSystem cases (here’s a comparison of all my modular tool cases), that might not be the best option here.
The benefit of Bosch L-Boxxes and other modular tool boxes is how they make it easier to create a tool storage system. To buy just a single modular tool box probably isn’t going to be the best use of funds. Even so, if you’re set on using an L-Boxx, a L-Boxx 2 *should* fit most smaller cordless reciprocating saws.
I don’t think the small-sized Dewalt ToughSystem case will fit the full depth of a cordless recip saw, or possibly not without modifying the inner compartment, and the medium size case might be way too large.
My first thought for a dedicated cordless reciprocating saw tool box would be to look at Stack-On’s 16-inch and 19-inch metal tool boxes, which are both priced at around $18 each on Amazon. Without measuring out a Tiger Saw (which is said to be ~15-inches long), I can’t tell if it would fit comfortably inside the 16-inch case, but I believe it should. The 19-inch tool box would probably be my pick, as the extra room would be great for safety glasses, hearing protection, an extra battery, and a blade assortment or two.
Regular plastic tool boxes should also work well, and are also available in the $15-25 price range.
There’s also the option of looking around for a Sawzall case, but the prices of new ones without custom-fit molding is higher than for multi-purpose tool boxes and cases.
Does anyone have a better idea about what type of tool box or case would be best for a cordless reciprocating saw?
