Questions & Answers


How many ball bearings does this have?

Asked by Nick March 28, 2021

Did they ever fix the collet issue where the bits were falling out?

Asked by Rob March 3, 2021

Has the collet issue been fixed yet?

Asked by Greg November 30, 2020

No not yet and no one can get a straight answer from Milwaukee. Reportedly the generation 3.5 has been fixed but it's impossible to tell the difference on the retail box as to which generation you are getting.

Has Milwaukee fixed the problem with the collet? The collet doesn't seem to retain it's bit at ti...

Asked by Gingee96 October 13, 2020

No it still hasn't been fixed and Milwaukee hasn't been transparent on this issue. Supposedly the fix for the collet is adding 2 ball bearings and that is the being called the generation 3.5, but there is no way to tell the difference on the retain box between the version 3.0 and the 3.5.

Asked by Jose August 22, 2020

There is nothing in the Operator's Manual that mentions a fence. I suggest you call Milwaukee at 1-800-729-3878 or go online to www.milwaukeetool.com for a complete listing of accessories for this model.

A must have for any trade
This is simply a must have for any trade I am a plumber by trade and a carpenter by hobby and I use this impact both on and off of the job, and it handles both perfectly. I love the variable speed where if I am using it with drill bits I have a higher speed setting and if I am using it on a fastener on wood I have a slower speed so I don't split the wood. The ergonomics on this impact are so good that this feels like it was made just for my hands. It's so light and small that I can carry it around my belt and it's not a burden and it's small enough to get into tiny spaces but doesn't lack any power. This impact does pack a punch I've pulled lug nuts off of cars with just this tiny impact and it's durable as well, I've dropped it from multiple ladders and it's never let me down. This really is the best bet if you're looking for a new impact driver.

Thankyou so much!!!

With the 5.0 battery, the jigsaw is on the heavy side. But it is very precise and powerful. I prefer to run it with a 2.0 battery because of weight, but that is just my preference. The added led light helps out a ton to see what you are doing and to keep a straight line.

Overall a great product made for the harsh reality of the construction world. Within a day I dropped it ten feet off a ladder straight down to a concrete slab and it was light not happened, other than a few surface scuffs of course. But overall Nothing beats how compact and power this impact is. And the adjustable speed control is awesome.

Another great cordless tool from Milwaukee. I have a few of these tools that are powered by the M18 series batteries and they are both powerful and long-lasting. This cordless jigsaw feels good in your hand both in weight and balance. little features like the LED light and quick change blade lever are nice touches. Probably the best feature for me was the variable speed trigger which really works well and offers almost an infinite number of speeds. Highly recommend.

This review is for Milwaukee Tool Cat. No. 2737-21, M18, D-handle jig saw kit, a new product. This saw kit includes a tough, high-impact plastic case, the jig saw, one Milwaukee REDLITHIUM 5.0 amp-hour battery, a M12-M18 charger, one T-shank metal-cutting blade, dust collector attachment, transparent blade cover and an anti-splinter device. The Operator's Manual is very clearly written. This is a feature-laden and innovative product from my perspective. It has the advantage of using high-quality T-shank blades. Installing blades, changing the shoe angle, changing the orbital setting, changing the dust blower setting and installing the dust collection attachment require no tools. The shoe angle has detent settings of 0, 15, 30 and 45 degrees, both left and right. I found the soft-grip handle comfortable during use. I own two corded jig saws, neither even approaching the cutting power of this product. The cutting speed, especially when working with wood and other soft materials is especially fast. I expect that the orbital action setting that I used during such work is the primary factor in fast cutting as it facilitates clearing of the cutting area of sawdust, an important part of preventing blade overheating. Because of my satisfaction with this tool, I will donate both of my corded jig saws to a charity. This tool includes a limited 5-year warranty. I have used my local authorized Milwaukee Tool warranty service shop for service in the past, finding it outstanding. This is a very welcome addition to my tool collection.

I own a number of Milwaukee tools and found them to be excellent performing tools. The Milwaukee Model 2737-20 jigsaw cuts faster and cleaner than previous corded jigsaws I owned. The jigsaw comes with a number of excellent features- It has a LED light to see the cutting area better; a blower that keeps the cutting area free of sawdust; an anti-splinter device that helps stabilize the workpiece and reduce workpiece splinter; an adjustable shoe that can be tilted up to 45 degs. in either direction and a dust collection attachment. The saw weighs about six pounds with the battery. It has a viable speed trigger and three orbital settings when cutting various materials. Installing and ejecting blades is a snap using the Quik-Loc tension lever. Only T-Shank jig saw blades can be used with this saw.

**This is a very powerful, high-end jigsaw that comes in an excellent kit. Highly Recommended.** ...
**This is a very powerful, high-end jigsaw that comes in an excellent kit. Highly Recommended.** A brand new model from Milwaukee. After using it extensively, this has got to be one of the most powerful jigsaws I’ve ever used. Corded or not. A few thoughts on what's included with the kit: The large carrying case is made of heavy duty plastic with strong locking tabs. Everything seats nicely and ensures safe transport. There's also a hole for a lock. I usually don't care for hard cases but it’s nice here. For me a jigsaw is a tool that gets stored away for extended periods until needed. A multi-volt rapid charger is included. No negatives here. The included 5ah battery is a newer-ish model and while Milwaukee has since added larger capacities this one seems a good fit in regards to overall size and runtime. Additional accessories include an anti-splinter attachment, a blade cover, a dust collection attachment, and a bi-metal blade. The anti-splinter piece worked surprisingly well and there was a noticeable reduction in tearout. The blade cover is quite flimsy and will break if abused although it functions fine. The included blade is not just a throw away, and is still as sharp as ever after much abuse. Build quality of the jigsaw itself is excellent. Do note that this saw is fairly large(approx 10 ¾ in. long with a battery). Rubber overmold and plastics used are top notch and the D-handle feels comfortable in the hand. Trigger, safety lock, detent arm, blower, and orbital switching are all smooth and functional. Blade install and eject are solid and I like that it shoots the blade out when you are switching. This saw has a built in light, it works just fine. The included no-mar shoe is of a thick plastic and impressed me when cutting softer materials, it glides. The shoe itself is of a thick, high grade metal and bevels with the release of a swing arm. Detents were precise and there are numerical indicators when beveling. This saw was square to the blade right out of the box. Should yours not be, a hex key is hidden on the shoe for further adjustment. A few things missing that I would have liked would be a trigger on lock and it would have been nice if they included an edge guide. Performance wise this saw was incredible and is a dream to use. It sped thru cuts regardless of the material and dialing the orbital up resulted in even more speed and aggression at the expense of cleanliness. It’s hard to overstate the power here. Softwoods, hardwoods, aluminum, plastics, and steel, whatever it is, this saw will cut it, fast and with little effort. Precision is important and this saw is definitely a precision tool. With orbital off and when I took my time, precise lines as well as shapes and curves of all sizes were no trouble, and I’m terrible when it comes to jigsaw skills. Variable speed works very well and let me control the speed of a cut nicely. I experienced almost no blade deflection or wander throughout testing of the saw, regardless of the material. Vibration was noticeable, as is the nature of the tool, although not much more than any other jigsaw I’ve used. It is fairly loud so make sure you have hearing protection. This saw can get hot when running for extended periods. Nothing too extreme and I attribute that mostly due to the brushless motor. Dust collection worked better than I anticipated. When set to blow out the front with no attachment I ended up with quite the mound of sawdust, as expected(do note that visibility in this mode is excellent). Switching that off, adding the cover/attachment and hooking it all up to my shop vac there was a large reduction in the amount of sawdust being put out. You're still going to have a cleanup, but for those that need it dust collection definitely works well here. Milwaukee puts right on the box that the included battery will give you up to 105ft. of cuts. They specify particleboard but for my runtime test I used a mix of ½ OSB, ¼ ½ and ¾ ply, 2x4 pine, and some hardboard. I can confirm that I was able to get well over 105 ft. of cuts with juice to spare in a single charge of the included 5ah battery. Additionally I had some 4ah batteries lying around and in testing them saw little to no difference in power/performance. This jigsaw all in all is very efficient with the battery and runtime was more than satisfactory. It can surely be attributed to the brushless motor and the electronics in the FUEL branding. I would wholeheartedly recommend this jigsaw. I think for a woodworker it would be a great pickup due to the build quality and precision that's possible. Likewise I think this tool would be great for any contractor/job site type due to the extreme power and overall rugged build. Even a DIY type that doesn't mind the premium would certainly enjoy this saw. Which leads me to a final note. This has to be one of the best jigsaws you can buy right now and is certainly priced accordingly. If you take the time to do some research though you will find that there are actually limited offerings as far as brushless jigsaws go and this tool and its kit overall are priced competitively. I found no faults overall with this kit and believe anyone eyeing this tool would not be disappointed in their purchase. Highly Recommended!

This is a great product, cuts very cleanly. This lost a star from me for a few reasons.The dust extraction, tool free blade removal) and the guard around the blade (I was expecting a hard plastic material but this is a flimsy piece of plastic that I have to be extra careful with to make sure I do not break it). What put this jigsaw on my radar was the included dust port. I am always working with MDF and anything that will help reduce the amount in the air is a good thing. The fact that the dust port is in the back minimizes the amount of dust it collects, it should be near the front towards the cut line, to get it at the source. This has a tool free blade change but it needs to be reworked. I say that because I had the saw upside down, with the battery out, and when I pushed the lever to remove the blade , the blade flew out of the saw, not very high not even an 1" or 2" but nonetheless I was not expecting it to eject like that. I figured the tool release would just release the blade not chuck it. The LED is very bright and lights up the work surface well, I was in a dimly lit room and I was able to see the cutline perfectly. The non marring base is great also, it is nice and smooth and allowed my saw to slide across the MDF without scratching the surface. At first I thought this saw was pretty heavy, but the only time I noticed the weight was when I first used it. Now I barely notice it, or it is not an issue I should say. This has a variable speed trigger and even the low settings deliver enough speed and to get the job done) I used it when I was working on 1/2" thick MDF)

This is an outstanding brushless jigsaw from Milwaukee with many great features. This model supports the M18 battery system. The kit includes the jigsaw, case, blade, blade cover, anti-splinter device, shoe cover, 5Ah battery and a charger that handles both 18 and 12 volt batteries. Blades are held by a quick lock mechanism which requires T shank blades. You twist a lever to open the mechanism, insert the blade and let go of the mechanism which locks it into place with spring loaded action. The removable shoe cover can be used to protect surfaces from being marred. The shoe is adjustable with multiple angles. It has detents for 0, 15, 30 and 45 degrees in both directions. If you want an angle between those spots simply set the angle and lock it in without engaging the detent. A dust blower shuttle allows settings for blowing air out the front or out the back with a dust collection system attached. The tool also features a four stage orbital setting (0-3) with 0 being no orbital and 3 being maximum orbital. The manual includes orbital setting suggestions based on material type. The trigger can be locked easily and the speed is variable between 0 and 3500 strokes per minute (SPM) based on trigger pressure. The tool can even plunge cut on soft woods. I tested the jigsaw on a piece of laminated shelving. While the tool is heavier than a corded model, it felt sturdy on the work surface and was able to make tight turns with ease. Cutting at a 45 degree angle was just as easy as cutting with no angle. I enjoyed the battery model more than my corded model. Not only was the Milwaukee cordless more powerful than my corded model but it also cut easier and turned quicker and tighter. This tool may be more money than a corded model but the convenience of a cordless model makes it worthwhile.
