Great Tool to have
This is a very well designed tool, top quality and handy to have around. One wonders why it took so long for such a tool to show up? Is that not always the case. Very, very happy with this purchase.

12V Cordless Hackzall
When a short tether line is added on it is light weight enough to attach to my tool belt when working high on metal girders etc. It has enough power to do medium type jobs. Its size and desigh is convenient to use in tight places. Good Job!

Pros
Easy To Use
Small tool, many uses.
The Milwaukee M12 series Tubing Cutter is the reason i bought into this cordless system. The Hackzall at first seemed like a great tool, but I found out quickly that it was underpowered. (Once again, the supplied batteries run out too quickly; I had to get the larger batts, and then the tool would work well). It's a go-to tool in that i don't have to break out a full size sawzall for most cuts (EMT, Copper, threaded rod, etc.).
But... I was disappointed with it at first. It wasn't well constructed, the first one I got (yes, there have been a few) failed about a few months later, one of the leads that connects to the motor broke off, I imagine due to vibration. I was careful in using the tool, but with any recip saw you will get vibration at the tool from time to time. Milwaukee repaired it at no charge, but then i wondered how useful it would be considering that i had to be gentle with it.
The tool had to be sent in a second time (this time for water damage). I had to cut a piece of copper out that had some residual water in it; nothing that i haven't done before with a larger cordless sawazall or a corded one for that matter, and it seized on me! I tried to oil it to get it going again, and it just locked out. (Mind you, I clean and lubricate my tools after heavy use.)
Millwaukee wouldn't repair it, claiming that I had misused it! it didn't pay to fight them on it, and that didn't stop me from buying another one, though they seemed to be making them a bit better now. It's so handy that i can't do without it.
My suggestion with the M12 series is to buy the bare tools (or one kit, to get the charger) and then purchase the larger batteries. You shouldn't have to do this, but those smaller batteries are worthless. The one tool they are good with is the Mspector camera; get that if you need it and the the bigger batts for the other tools.

I use to cut conduit and it does a great job. It does everything a heavy cordless sawzall does but fits in bag and is not a lug. I carry this in my tool backpack all day. No, need for me to go back to the heavier one It does everything I want it too. Hold battery life really well have not had to use more than one battery in one day while cutting and hanging conduit. Would buy it again.

Great for use in tight spots where a sawzall just won't fit. Compact and lightweight, easy to carry around in your tool bag. The bade will wear out before the saw does!

Nice little pruner
I bought this as a bare tool along with the 12" pruning blades to do non-commercial light pruning. The saw happily chews through up to 2" branches - I haven't tried larger but it appears that it would be up to the task albeit with a bit of patience because of the short blade stroke. It has comfortable one-handed operation with either the standard or XL batteries - easily handled by Mom which is a big plus. With the 12" blade it offers a pretty long one-handed reach. The Milwaukee pruning blades make a clean cut with no bark shredding. No complaints at all - gets the spring cleanup done with ease!

what batteries should i order?

BEST ANSWER: The manufacturer produces a 12V Lithium Ion battery which is compatible with this tool.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
