Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

I use this tool mostly to cut down dowels and it does a great job.
We often run across fixtures that are corroded very badly and won't come off with a wrench without breaking something or busting a knuckle when it does break loose.
The M12 is very easy to use and control one handed, and is very compact for accessing tight work areas.

I bought into the Milwaukee M12 line of tools including the Hackzall, Inspector, Drill/Driver, Impact and Pipe Cutter. There were a number of features that sold me on these tools including ergonomics, product selection using this same battery, battery life indicator, LED illumination, 5 year warranty, opinions from other reviews, first hand testing, etc. Another guy I've worked with has a Hackzall and I've personally seen it dropped off counters, ladders and trash cans. This guy is a bit careless and is unnecessarily tough on his tools, but his Hackzall continues to work well and nothing was ever bent or broken on it from the far.

Based on my experiences, the Hackzall can easily be used one handed for cutting softer or thin materials, but I prefer to keep my right hand on the trigger/grip while resting my left hand across the top to provide more control, especially when cutting thicker and harder materials. The Hackzall is a useful tool for tight places and it easily cuts copper pipe, 2x4's, EMT, drywall, fiberglass, etc, pretty well as long as what you're cutting is not too wide (less than a couple inches and the thinner the better). Milwaukee has its own line of Hackzall blades that are recommended for this saw, but all the regular Sawzall blades will work in this as well. However, longer blades have a tendency to jump around on this saw quite a bit more than I'm used to with my other larger reciprocating saws (Dewalt, Hitachi, etc).

I was hoping to also use this tool to cut extruded aluminum tub / shower rails among other similar tasks and while it can do this task, it doesn't do it very well for me. There's just too much vibration to get quick clean accurate cuts unless the work piece is securely clamped under more ideal conditions.

Milwaukee quality in a tiny package. Very strong motor, almost as much power as my full-size 18V Ridgid cordless recip saw. Cuts copper pipe and PVC just as fast. If you look at the pictures above, you can see how it compares in size to my Milwaukee 6521-21. Cutting a 2x4 twice, a 3" PVC pipe, a piece of 1/2" rebar, a piece of 3/8" all-thread, ten cuts in 1 1/2" PVC, a bar of 1/2" thick brass 1" wide, and ten cuts in 1/2" copper caused the battery to drop one of four lights. It does cut faster with the Hackzall blades because they are a thinner kerf, but they aren't flimsy at all. It weighs roughly five pounds. As a service plumber, I can tell you this will make some of my jobs a lot easier, safer, and faster.
UPDATE: 5/16/12 - I still have this and use it several times a week. It has been repaired under warranty twice - my fault, I got it soaked both times. It takes a lot of abuse. The battery indicator quit working a while back and bits of the rubber overmold have fallen off, the labels are shot and you can barely read milwaukee on the side, but it still works. I bought an xc battery for the m12 radio and it breaths new life into this saw. It lasts twice as long as the original battery, which should be no surprise the battery is twice the capacity. That 18v Ridgid saw I mentioned earlier gave it up, before this did. It's not going to replace your corded or cordless saw, but it's a great saw to have for the little stuff - 3" and less. When it finally dies and cost more than half of a new one to get repaired, I won't hesitate to buy it again and keep the old one for parts.

I have been using this hackzall for about 2 weeks and am finding more uses for it every day !! It's typical Milwaukee quality, seems like it's built to last. You will not be satisfied with this saw if you don't use it for it's intended purpose, just remember it's NOT A FULL SIZE SAWZALL !!!!! It has a specific application, and it does it flawlessly !!!!! I LUV THIS LITTLE WORKHORSE, AND THE BATTERY LASTS FOREVER. This hackzall is not a must have ... it's a NICE TO HAVE.

Milwaukee 2420-22 12-Volt Hackzall Saw Kit
Although this will not replace my Delta Sawzall in the shop, in the garden it is invaluable for cutting 5" or less branches. Used in combination with the Skill "The Ugly" reciprocating saw blades, this saw cuts through branches and roots like butter! The 12v Rechargeable Ion batteries lasts a very long time and the ergonomic design of the saw enable the saw to be used easily with one hand. Its compact size allows for use in very tight places. I highly recommend this for any serious home gardner!

I own a lot of Milwaukee tools (and other brands too) and I really appreciate Milwaukee's quality and durability. As far as this tool is concerned I thought it might be a nice tool but I already had a Sawzall so I didn't think it was worth the money to get a smaller saw. Whenever I ran into a situation where my Sawzall didn't fit, I used a keyhole saw with a little elbow grease.

One day, I ran into a situation where I needed to cut some 4" PVC sewer line inside a wall in a very cramped area. To do it with my sawzall would have requied a lot of extra demolition just to get to the pipe (and then a lot more repair work). I could get my keyhole saw in place but with the difficult angles, I couldn't get any pressure on it. I don't think I could have cut through the pipe by hand if I spent all day on it. I was pressed for time so I went and got a Hackzall. I made two clean cuts in less than a minute and was very pleased. Just that one 60 second job was worth the money I spent for the hackzall due to the time it saved me and the demolition and repair it allowed me to avoid. I could have thrown it out then and been ahead.

Interestingly, I use it all the time now and my sawzall doesn't get much use except for big jobs. It is a great feeling when you buy something that not only meets your needs but also wildly exceeds your expectations. This is a very nice, convenient, durable tool and the battery lasts a very long time. It is well balanced and feels great in your hand. I wish I had bought this a long time ago.
