Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flatfinish Great tool!
Very powerful and great control with the orbital control. The tool is a little heavy but the power makes up for it as lighter tools in the same class are less powerful. The blade release is textured with nubs on the sides and on the forward edge of the collar so you don't have to have the blade plunger in the forward position in order to change blades. The orbital control is a slider for dialing in variable amounts of orbital action for different applications and that is my favorite part. I typically go for a more refined tool than just for power and this has plenty of power and as much refinement as you could ask for in a reciprocating saw. Being able to easily adjust how far the shoe extends is another big plus, especially when cutting metals because it allows you to use several different areas of the blade as the cutting edges dull.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RDBillings Quality Sawzall!
Bought this saw to replace a Craftsman unit that literally "blew up" in my hands. I have a number of Milwaukee hand tools now and have no conplaints. Circular saw, drill driver, impact driver and palm sanders... all good quality!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike This things a beast
Bought and used it this weekend to cut down several Palms, and Pepper Trees.
Went thru the Palms like butter, and went underground to cut the roots out like a badger going down a hole. Impressive.
Next up, cut thru many, many Pepper Tree trunks and branches. These trees are hard wood, and again it had no problem attacking them.
The only issue I had, was I wish I'd bought this years ago!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 4400 I hate Sawzalls
I have spent 1/2 of my adult life doing construction work, in particular carpentry. I hate sawzalls & cat paws. Both are used in demolition or to fix mistakes. If I have to use this tool then I am glad to finally have a good one. It is so much better than my 20 year old Makita (which I gave to my son-in-law as it still is operational). Changing blades could not be easier. The variable speed is controllable, it makes using my least favorite tool a lot better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Clark Blade doesn't lock
I bought this thing today and when I got home, I found out that the blade lock was installed backwards! That's right, when I look down into the blade lock, I can see when I twist it the pin that holds the hole in the blade move across, but when I release, it retracts which is the OPPOSITE of what it's supposed to do to hold the blade. I'm going to try one more, but if this is the quality I can expect, then I'm abandoning the Milwaukee brand forever.

First off I will start by saying Home Depot has an awesome service policy. I am thankful for that because I have went through 3 of these in less than a month. 2 of them the front guards broke and the 3rd one won't hold a blade for more than 15 seconds. I went with Milwaukee because 20 years in the fire service using Milwaukee sawzalls never had an issue. This one is heavy but easy to use

Takes everything I throw at it. I do wish changing blades was a bit simpler—I’d have to take my gloves off half the time to even access the dial.
