Awesome
Thus far, I love it. The fact that I can use it in confined spaces and using one hand to operate it efficiently, is a huge PLUS.

Wow, what fabulous customer service. Sorry about the previous review - would have removed it but was unable so I'm righting my previously review. With the customer support from the Milwaukee office, determined the issue. Though my batteries charge well, hold a charge and function my other M12 products very well, I overlooked the need for powerful batteries for this beast. Yeah, it's a small beast. As noted previously (see other review, I used this thing religiously and burned it out after a few years of productive use. During that time it was so dependable I apparently overlooked my lack of new supply of batteries after getting it rebuilt. Thanks for the great product support, you've reinstilled my faith in Milwaukee powertools. Thanks again for the assistance for the product proving its reliability.

Goes Where SAWZALL Cant!
I got this HACKZALL in a *non-FUEL* 5-piece M12 set and is worth its weight in gold. Not only is it small, compact, light weight and easy to use compared to a SAWZALL, when paired with a XC 4.0 Battery, it performs.

I've used it doing lots of yard work and trimming, as well as cutting through 2x2s and other wood during demolition work. Beware, this thing needs a larger battery pack so ensure you have a XC 3.0 or 4.0 battery to pair with it.

If you need more power, upgrade to the FUEL HACKZALL.

Impaled finger tips pulling battery out of tool
The saw works fine and I love the compact size compared to my much large Dewalt reciprocating saw, but I have small hands and the need to press inward while exerting downward pressure to pull the battery out sent my fingers sliding downward, on to the very sharp points on the side of battery case. I have taped over the points to avoid them, but you might want to redesign to avoid such dangerous sharp points. I would recommend your tool, but with a warning about the battery case.

Great little tool
Works great. I am a contractor, use this thing constantly, small, light, good power and acceptable battery life. Saves dragging a cord or using much heavier 18V. This is my 3rd one. First one quit after 3 years of use and abuse, 2nd one got stolen off job affer about a years use. Always get recon, cant tell its not brand new.

Great product!
As a plumber it works well outside when no outlets available. The compact design is essential for small spaces. I was impressed with the reconditioned quality. It looks brand new and works great
