Product Description

Since Milwaukee came up with the reciprocating saw in the first place, we have very high expectations for every model they put out and this one does Milwaukee proud.

At the heart of this saw is a rip-roaring 13 amp motor that does not hesitate no matter what you’re cutting, whether it’s studs or large diameter pipe. Despite the awesome power, it handles beautifully, with so little vibration it’s remarkable, and the weight of the tool is balanced perfectly for minimal user fatigue. And in the interest of ergonomics, probably the best innovation on this saw is the handle. It rotates a full 360-degrees and locks in at 45-degree intervals, so you can adjust the angle to whatever odd situation you might find yourself in, and it saves tremendous strain on your body.

The speed control dial lets you set a range, and the trigger pressure gives you variable speeds within that range for absolute control. At full speed, you’ve got 3,000-strokes per minute with a 1-1/4-inch stroke length, and you can choose between orbital action, which gives you fast, aggressive cuts, or straight blade movement, which delivers a surprisingly fine cut.

We like Milwaukee’s Quik-Lok blade clamp for fast, easy blade changes. And we love the flexibility of installing the blades with the teeth facing up or down, making your job even easier. Just twist the collar and insert the blade all the way in; release the collar and a spring-loaded mechanism locks the blade in place.

And talk about flexibility: Even the shoe adjusts, and without a tool. You can move it effortlessly both forward and backward into six positions, letting you use untouched parts of the blade for longer blade life, and it’s great, too, in awkward positions.

--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

I just took delivery of the beauty pictured below. I'm not a professional, I'm just a tool-obsessed DIYer.

I have only used one other reciprocating saw -a Craftsman 2-speed unit. This Sawzall is, to say the least, a world apart from the Craftsman. First of all, some things I really like about it:

1. SMOOTH. The counterbalance on this thing is amazing. There is very little vibration when it's running free. In orbital mode you can feel a slight vibration owing to the fact that the vertical component of motion is not counterbalanced. Nevertheless, even in orbital mode this saw transmits less vibration into my hands than my truck does at 65 MPH on the highway.

2. The "Cord Lock" feature. I didn't really think this would be worth much, but it turns out its quite convenient. You insert and remove the cord by twisting it to lock/unlock it. Plus it comes with a 10' cord; much longer than most power tools.

3. 13 amps of destruction. That's a ton of power. Note that Makita makes a 15-amp model now, so it's only a matter of time before Milwaukee upgrades to 15 amp (probably about a month after I've had the one I just bought :rolleyes.

4. Clutch protection for the drivetrain. If you suddenly lock up the blade the clutch protects the innards from grenading.

Things I don't like (so far):

1. The plastic shoe adjustment lock (noted in the second picture). This is very thin plastic. Fortunately it's also very flexible, so it's not brittle at all. But I feel this part would be better in aluminum. I've written Milwaukee to suggest this.

Things I'm neutral about:

1. Extensive use of plastic. This thing only weighs about 10 lb, which is great.

Does this saw live up to the Milwaukee heritage? Oh yes, and then some. Looking to get a Sawzall, I looked at many manufacturer's saws at the box stores, and began closing in on a more powerful saw since I would be looking to do some house renovation as well as some steel work. It came down to the Bosch RS20 and the Super Sawzall. In the stores, these two don't even compare. Hold the Milwaukee, and you will see its weight is placed very well between the 2 grip areas. The 360 rotating shaft is a great "detail", and one I thought was the final selling point besides the Milwaukee quality name.

I was not proven wrong. Less that 30 minutes after I received the saw, I was out cutting down fenceposts with the Milwaukee. As it turns out, the 360 "detail" is not a minor detail, but a very usable facet to this great saw. At 13 amps, it didnt' hesitate cutting through greener posts, and the saw felt great and stable when doing the job. Not a lot of vibration either. When that happened, I rolled on the speed, and the vibration from the fencepost settled down and the cutting tended to go quicker.

If you need to use a saw regularly, or you're the type who buys tools to last a lifetime, you at least need to consider Milwaukee tools. My father was a tool and die machinist who swore by Milwaukee tools. I have nodoubt that these tools will outlast me and not even be slowed down by the home improvements they'll help me with.

To start I have no bias in this review whatsoever, I am in construction and I run a crew of guys who work for me daily. My interest is in finding the best and most reliable tool. I keep multiples of most types of tools on hand and they are all used regularly. I usually buy the "best" of what is out there because the cost of downtime and replacement is not worth the time/cost to me.

I bought this tool from Amazon a few weeks before this review date. At the same time I bought a Makita 15 AMP and Hitachi 13 AMP. The other 2 saws are still working the SawZall is not. I was initially put off by the fact that the Makita was made in China, but it cuts very well and is very heavy duty. The only thing that is weird with the Makita is the mechanism that holds the blade is a bit flakey - but works - you just have to jiggle it sometimes to get the blade in. Also the rubber boot that covers the blade hold mechanism disitegrated quickly and is totally off. The Hitachi is holding up well but has not been used as much as the others to this point, but so far so good.

The Sawzall no longer works. The blade reciprocates in the air but when you try to cut something the blade stops despite the motor running and does not cut anything. The Sawzall it turns out is also made in China, but assembled in the USA. I have an old 11 AMP Sawzall - all metal that has lasted well over 20 years so far - this new unit is not that - nor that quality. The cutting seemed fine when it did work briefly (I am writing this about 40 days after we received the saw - it was used maybe 5 times). Also the blade holding mechanism is better than the Makita.

I called Amazon to exchange the unit they would not saying it was after 30 days.

First my one complaint - the lid to the saw blade compartment in the blow-mold case is a little difficult to operate. It'd be nice if it had a real lid with a metal latch. That's my very minor whine on the subject.

There's a reason Milwaukee has the reputation it does, and why the word "Sawzall," is name every other manufacturer strives for. The combination of balance, power, ruggedness, flexibility (adjustable orbital action, speed-dial *and* variable speed trigger... are you kidding me?) and now a rotating handle is amazing. It's like they read our minds on what could possibly be done to make the Super Sawzall better.

I decided to bite the bullet when I moved into a 100-year old house needing major rennovation. If you are remodeling, even one room of a house, this is a worthwhile investment. I can't express how convenient and fundamental to ease of use, the rotating handle is. When you're tearing apart a room, cutting through old studs (they are hard!) and nails is no problem with this baby. The rotating handle not only eases fatigue, it enables you to keep cutting in tight areas without having to contort your body.

I didn't have the problems of tight switches and sliders, that other reviewers did. I like that the blade lock mechanism is beefy enough to operate it with gloves on. Also, the removable cord is a clever idea, and reduces strain on the cord when packing away the saw.

This tool is a classic example of the old adage - Buy the best, and cry only once.
