Rated 5 out of 5 by Professional reciprocating saw First, the description doesn't mention this sawzall as orbital, but it is in case you may be wondering. Anyway, this reciprocating saw is a serious professional tool, for contractors or serious professionals. A far cry from the 10amp "default" brand saw I had previously. I use mine daily from everything from lumber to nails and bolts, to pipe, even masonry and tree limbs with the correct blades. Mostly demolition but with the correct blade and steady slow cutting can make some fairly detailed and accurate cuts for a saw designed to demolish building materials quickly. This saw will not disappoint you, just ask any contractor or tradesman and they'll tell you the same thing. August 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Tool Easy to use. Easy to change blades- literally seconds. Plenty of power. This saw cuts through wood like it is butter. I have also used it for cutting screws and some nails and it cuts beautifully. Once again you can change from wood to metal blades in seconds. I wish I hadn't waited so long to buy one I would have saved myself a lot of unnecessary work over the years. It was a little on the expensive side but I don't like buying cheap tools and regretting it. This was a great investment. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Its Orbital... Hot D amn Okay nowhere on any product review or specifications does it say this baby has orbital cutting stroke, its even better than that, has a slide adjustment from straight cut, for fine cutting, and slide up to orbital cutting for hardcore ripping and cutting fast .. i bought this to cut thru some deep tree roots i had to get thru to trench electrical conduit.. this thig ate it up.. I all my milwaukee tools. this thing is a BEAST.. glad i went with this one vs the cheaper one.. December 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent - Best on the market in this price range... maybe the best PERIOD. When other saws had bogged down on serious cutting I decided to try this one. This is the most powerful reciprocating saw Milwaukee creates. I've had it a few years and it never showed any signs of not being able to handle the task at hand. It has performed flawlessly for me. I'm now interested in checking out their "FUEL" cordless model for those times when portability is a priority. Milwaukee invented the first reciprocating saw and they still know how to do it. By the way, the one I bought was Made in USA with Domestic and Foreign parts if that makes any difference. I believe this model is still made that way - which is nice for a change. November 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tool Good power. Easy tool change. Storage box does not have a lot of room for extra blades. August 12, 2014
