Awesome saw
First time I used it was to breakdown a steel patio door and frame I replaced. This saw made the work a breeze, and I was able to quickly stack, load and haul away. I also use it regularly to cut PVC on swimming pool plumbing jobs I do on the side, making quick work of any project. Considered buying the PVC sheers, but no need, this saw does it all with the right blade.

Good tool bad packaging
I like the tool but the packaging for shipment was bad. The tool was in its soft case in a cardboard box with no padding and the box wasn't even taped. I'm surprised it didn't fall out of the box during shipping and get lost.

I've used several different brands of reciprocating saws. I like the Hackzall best because of its size and it seems to do everything the Sawzall does. I'm a 25 year Habitat for Humanity volunteer. This saw is volunteer friendly (beginners are successful & use this safely.)

This saw is easy to use but it has a short stroke length and the could use a bit more power (even though it is just 12v). The saw also loves to vibrate.

Good for small jobs.
The design is a little hard on the hand because it is hard to put down pressure on the saw. Works well on smaller items, pipe,, etc., but I do not recommend it for 4" sch. 40 pipe. I have used it, but it is very slow. It has its place: small work area and it's electric!

Milwaukee 2420-81
Bought this thinking it would be helpful removing some PVC pipe in a tight spot for a plumbing repair. Found it so easy and comfortable to use I used it to cut all the pipe going into the repair too. Like all the Milwaukee M12 tools I have, it's surprisingly heavy. I take that as a sign it's well built. I might have been able to do what I needed with a full size saw, but this was much more maneuverable. Won't replace a full size recip saw especially for heavy demolition, but it definitely earns a spot in my tool collection. And for the price, it is a cheap luxury.

Excellent! Performs and looks brand new. However, I have learned that maintenance is very important. Keep it clean and lubricated.

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 120 days.
