Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SuperDYIer A nice saw.
It works as expected. The blade change is easy and fast. Speed modulation via the trigger is easy. Low vibration eases accurate cuts. Reasonably lightweight. Feels like it should last. Very comfortable grips.

This sawzall is a really nice tool, and given the chance I would buy this again no questions asked. It is the perfect weight and size for my needs, mostly home projects. So far this has cut wood, metal, drywall and is great, plenty of power but not so much as to foul up/bend blades. And speaking of blades changing them out on this thing is so easy and quick about 2-4 seconds and your cutting. Milwaukee got this tool perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by j4327718 What a beast!
I was torn between the DeWalt, Makita and Milwaukee saws because they were at around the same price for a 12 amp. Reading online reviews and they all seem to be fine. This is a true work horse. I have cut trees and also pressure treated lumber with this saw. Using it one handed can get tiring though so just be aware of it. The description says 7 lbs but it definitely feels heavier than that (maybe 10lbs) I went to Home depot and compared them. I feel comfortable I made the right decision. I asked three different home depot employees and they all pointed me towards this. Generally you can tell how good a product is by the manufacturer warranty, 5 years versus 3 for the others.

Perfect recip saw for most every occasion. The short stroke helps make it so. Will do it all, unless you need a battery operated one for the times electricity is not available. Mliwaukee is the way to go, I've had many others in my life, but milwaukee makes the best

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woodman Excellent tool
I have owned and worn out several recip saws. This is the best one I have ever owned. I chose the short stroke because I wanted control and accuracy and this saw delivers that completely. I need a longer stroke saw someday, they are faster but for most of the work I do, this is fast enough and the accuracy and control is a good trade off. This saw with a new sharp blade will out perform a longer stroke saw with a dull blade. If you need speed and don't care about accuracy, the fastest recip saw is one with orbital action. That will be my next saw purchase for use as a companion to this saw,

An explanation: I returned the saw to the store because it was intended as a gift. The recipient was given an identical saw by another family member. It is a good tool, and I would buy again if there was need.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scottysmuffler Works well, priced right
The 3/4" stroke works well for our needs which is thin wall steel and stainless steel tubing under vehicles. The saw is pretty quiet and very smooth with a variable speed trigger that is easy to control. The only feature that in my opinion, keeps it from a 5 star rating is the cheap, flimsy foot. If you use this saw on a daily basis, particularly steel tube, it's going to fail. It's just not robust enough for the job. I've used other saws that had a great, strong foot, but it just wasn't as smooth operating as the Milwaukee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fritzcars Durable and plenty of power
Great product. Easy to grip with plenty of power for around the house projects. Blade removal and replacement is a breeze. Has a nice storage case that is well made. This sawzall exceeded my expectations.
