  • Sawzall choice?

    I have 3 dewalts .(2) corded (1) 18v cordless..(I) ridgid mini fuego..Really like the mini but it is puny @ 4 amps..Haven't used a milwaukee in yrs. Too heavy and they blow everything you are cutting right back into your face

    I've had good luck w/ my older sawzalls! A 18volt hatchet w/ orbital and a 1998 6527-21 9.5 amps! I agree the newer ones are heavier!

      If you don't own a Milwaukee then you don't own a Sawzall.

        Milwaukee 13A with the rotating handle. IMO, nothing comes close to a Milwaukee Sawzall.

              I've owned Milwaukee, DeWalt, Porter Cable, Craftsman probably half a dozen others over the years. They all are just about disposable IMO.

              Always seem to go back to Milwaukee just because they are easy to repair and can get parts pretty cheap.

                  On paper the new ones are almost too strong! 13 Nd 15 amps require heavy ext cords! My old 9.5 amp 6527 from '98 is plenty strong!

                    Agreed. Lower Amp. cheapie DeWalts work fine for me.

                        we're talking reciprocating saws.

                        the important thing to keep in mind is the blade stroke. with plumbing and working in a closed wall, you want a short stroke / 3/4''.

                        when working in the open, like new construction, a longer stroke like 1.25'' is great.

                        now who needs a dewalt reciprocating saw

                        i have 10 brand new ones waiting to fly off the shelf. 75.00 plus shipping.

                        over the years i've used everything from makitas, milwaukees, dewalts and the cordless dewalt and milwaukee hatchet.

                        i consider them all disposable unless it's a cord. the cost of repairs is more than 50% of new for the most part.

                            Probably like some I know. If there's a pallet of them for $35.00 to $45.00....load 'em up.

                              charlie, haven't you figured it out yet, if the price is right, it's sold.

                              how about the 7 ridgid gas air compressors i bought last month
