Best is that the blades are replaceable unlike some keyhole saws. So no worries if I use it to cut roots in the dirt.
Highly recommended. No one else makes one as nice as this one.
What makes the saw excel, however, is the versatility. Changing the blade is simple, quick, and never compromises the sturdy feel. I purchased this saw with the blade kit (Milwaukee 49-22-1129 12-Piece Ultimate Demolition Sawzall Blade Set) and I have used it to make easy and controlled cuts through, wood, metal, plaster, dry wall, rigid foam, etc. I have also since purchased the Milwaukee Sawzall which can utilize the same variety of blades, increasing the value.
The other day after a snow storm, I had to perform some emergency pruning on a tree with branches leaning against my neighbors house and blocking the drive way. I remembered the threads on the end of this job saw and attached it to an old paint roller handle. Changed the blade to a long wood cutting blade, and was able to easily prune the small/medium sized branches in the tree. Perfect example of this tool's ease of use and versatility. Never thought I'd need it for that purpose, but there you go....5 stars.
Even if you aren't familiar with brands or tools, the moment you hold this saw you'll instantly know this is a quality tool.
I purchased it with some extra blades, then went and looked for things to cut.
I cut down 3 shrubs in my yard, with approx. 10-12cm wide branches.
The saw made short work of them, and cutting a green trunk full of sap is not an easy job.
The blades are heavy duty and very sharp, they're about 1mm thick and 15mm + wide, so they don't bend or warp like cheap brands.
Even the paint hasn't come off from 3 branches, they still look new!
The blade locking mechanism is very solid and effective, you simply turn the collet anti-clockwise, insert or remove the blade and release.
It really is that simple.
The collet is made from metal and plastic, and it grips the blade extremely well, I never had any concern about the blade not being secure.
The ergonomic handle is soft-grip, comfortable and has a bit of weight to it.
At the end of the handle is a hollowed thread for screwing on a broomstick handle.
I haven't used this feature, so I can't comment on it's effectiveness or how sturdy it is.
However, considering the quality and the obvious thought that went into this tool, I see no reason to doubt this feature's performance.
In summing up, this saw is a bit expensive, but it's a quality tool that should last a long time.
It uses reciprocating saw blades (Sawzall), and replacement blades are readily available.
