After watching Milwaukee's demo video of the Sawzall on youtube, I decided to spring for the tool, and I have to admit I am really pleased with it! It is adding another M18 powered tool to my tool chest and giving me the capability to saw wood and metal pieces that was a gap for me in the past. I will start by discussing the M18 battery on this tool.
I have been increasing the number of Milwaukee power tools that I have, and the interchangeability with the batteries on all these tools is an AWESOME feature. Furthermore these batteries can easily last all day, and if you are concerned that you've been working all day and might be running low, there is a battery light indicator on the front of the battery. I have heard there are slim-line batteries available, which are a little bit smaller than the regular size batteries that came with the unit, but this is something I need to research further as a possible upgrade to the set. These batteries are fantastic and they do not compromise on performance.
The tool itself is great. It is very powerful, has a great size and feel to it and does the job when needed. We used the tool to remove an old wooden shelf at my neighbor's house, and this thing worked like a dream. The rubber grips at the middle and back of the tool kept the tool very sturdy in my hands and did not slip. For as strong as a motor as this thing has, the vibration level with this Sawzall was surprisingly low, I didn't lose the feeling in my hands after average use, like other Sawzalls! The LED light is very bright and was great for the back darker corners of the shelf (see pictures.) The kit I purchased came with a battery, a charging station, and an awesome hard-shell case. The tool also has a clip which can be used for hanging. I have yet to use this tool to cut materials like metal or rebar, but based on its use so far, I am very happy! With regards to its cost, this is one of the higher-end sawzalls and you are getting what you pay for, just note it does not come with a blade. With the better power, longer performing batteries, and the over all longevity I expect to get from this tool, I think it is money well spent... Great job Milwaukee!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Heraldo This is an excellent saw!
This is actually my first SawZall. The battery lasts quite a long time. I used it to cut down some brush in and around the back yard. Now that I have one I see its usefulness and don't plan on going without one. I have all the other fuel tools and Milwaukee has some quality products and it by far and above the leader currently in technology for cordless tools.
I have one complaint, but I think it might be an unreasonable complaint. It is heavy. But quality tools that are going to last are heavy. It may be light in comparison to the other tools on the market but I haven't used those.

I own most of the Milwaukee 18v tools. Had the need to pick up an extra circular saw to increase production on a job site.
Noticed right away that the Fuel tool was able to cut way more per charge than the regular tool. It was also lighter, they say they will out last the regular tools also but that has yet to be seen.
I now have the fuel grinder kit, sawzall kit , drill and impact kit along with the circular saw kit. Will be buying more Fuel products as they come out. Also just picked up the new Job site Radio it works great.

I ordered this saw sight unseen. I was really pleased with the heavy weight and durable feel ot this saw. My first use confirmed my feelings.
