Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FireMech Great tool
heavy duty saw, the rotating handle makes it well suited for fire/rescue use along with the orbital selection.

Tool paid for itself with the removal of two large decks and demolition of large hot tub.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danny Excellent tool
Fantastic having all the options on one tool! Quick change, variable speed, orbiting blade, swiveling handle, depth adjustment, long cord, nice case, strong, longer 1 1/4" cut, study. All this together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TOMAGIGANT Best sawzall ever
Had one for ten years. Finally is time for retirement. I have problem with cord connection and is noisy so I decided to order the same one new. this is the most powerful sawzall ever. I have now a lot of heavy cutting. the rotating handle is the best idea ever made ! Does the job ! This is killer. Hardly recommend for heavy construction.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Renovationguy Really Great Tool For Renovations
This Sawzall has been really useful in renovating my 100 year old bathroom, I had to cut through really thick cast iron pipe, and had to also cut out some sections of the wall, all of which this machine did really well. I was worried that 13amp is a bit weaker than the newer 15 amp model, but there's nothing to worry about. The 365 degree spinning handle is (which is only available on the 13 amp version) has been extremely useful at making cuts sideways, up and down. I am somewhat disappointed that this feature is no longer available on the "newer" 15 amp model. All and all a very powerful tool that gets the job done well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RalfS Had to return it
I bought this saw at homedepot.com to use it to demo a wood deck of about 300sqf. The saw made a solid first impression and we made a few cuts until we noticed that the 'orbital function' could not be turned off. Turning the blade around (upside down) turned it off immediately and the saw blade just oscillated as expected. However, in the standard position the bladed orbited irrespective of the position of the sliding switch (orbiting on/off).
I called Milwaukee, customer service, to inquire about any remedies and they recommended returning the saw. No problems with the return at Home Depot, I ended up with the 15Amp model.
Overall, the saw performed well, felt solid and the cuts were made quickly and without any issues. I believe my saw was just an outlier and I recommend this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stew Product does not work
We purchased this for our work. When we placed it in service, it would not operate correctly on lower speeds. It would only operate on 5. So we are sending it back. I would have expected a tool from Milwaukee to go through some sort of quality check before it was shipped out. What a disappointment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kjack Better than expected
The sawzall was delivered almost next day and it works well beyond my expectations. I got it for my dad a plumber who had an older one and his work van was broken into and it was stolen. He told me he can barely get it into the third setting because its so powerful. He said the adjustable handle definitely helps instead of hold a powerful machine while off balance.
