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.Read more ›
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.
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!
Vibration IS pretty crazy at top speed but with this much power and portability, something had to give and it certainly wasn't the quality or construction of the tool. Fortunately it's not a continuous thing. At lower speeds it's quite stable but around 75% on the trigger it starts to shake a bit and I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable using anything but two hands on it at top speed. I don't think I'd like it for repetitive use at top speed for long periods of time, but that's not really the kind of work this tool is meant for.
So basically, if you want a finer cut, or decent control when cutting one-handed, you'll have to take it down a notch. If all you care about is making two pieces where there was once one ASAP, however, the option to go full bore is there and it cuts faster than I had hoped at this speed and still smoother than the B&D. I've used it do a plunge cut through an inch of pine and I'm looking forward to trying out the wood scrolling blades when I get the chance since I can't really afford a jigsaw at the moment and the cuts seem pretty smooth at lower speeds.
Which is the only really negative point for me. I like it just a little bit too much to give it up but I didn't really need it. I'm psyched to get that impact driver via the rebate and I love my subcompact drill/driver but as incredibly handy as it will come when I actually do have a use for it, there's other tools that would have been a better choice for me personally. That's more of a knock against me than the tool though and I suspect I'll feel less ambivalent when I start my first rehabbing project.Read more ›
