The M12 REDLITHIUM XC 4.0 Ah Battery Pack (Sold Separately) provides more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than competitive batteries. The dual gear counter balance mechanism significantly reduces vibration, providing faster starts in metal and reduced user fatigue.

tight space sawzall
Lighter and quicker to use than even my cordless sawzall. Its a good in between a jab saw or hacksaw blade holder and a full sized reciprocating saw. It's funny looking but is very comfortable to use.

Pleasantly Surprised!
I was looking for something easy to use for pruning but wasn't sure about what to buy. I already had a Milwaukee M12 Drill/Driver so started browsing tool forums and ended up with the M12 Fuel Hackzall. After deciding on a Hackzall I debated on whether to purchase the Fuel version or not but I clearly made the right decision. I had read the regular M12 sometimes could bog down on certain size limbs but the M12 Fuel pretty much cuts right on through.

I'm so glad I bought the M12 Fuel Hackzall it cuts through good sized limbs without a hiccup just what I was looking for! It has so much power much more than I expected when used with a 4.0 battery. I'm now wishing I would have purchased the Fuel version of their Drill/Driver and now plan to buy their M12 Fuel Impact Driver.

Highly Recommended!

Cuts to the root of it!
I bought this because I hate trying to use a jug saw to cut everything. Recently, I had a project where the jig saw blade was just a smidge too short on the upstroke and violently sent the tool flying into my hand and bent the blade at a weird angle. It was a near miss for sure. I was not impressed with the blade that was included in the box because it is very short on the upstroke and not useful for things that a sawzall would be used for over a jig saw. So I went out and bought some longer blades from Diablo and Skil and others. My first project was actually for my wife (to justify the purchase of course!) and use my new "pruning" blade to cut some dead limbs from our Crepe Myrtle. At first I was using the RL 2.0 battery and it was doing fine, very little motor grunt, but I decided to try out the bulkier RL 4.0 battery with amazing results. There was almost no noticeable motor stress. It made the tool too bulky and unwieldy in my opinion, but it just sliced through those trunks like they were butter. My only complaint is that the Fuel version is noticeably heavier than the non-Fuel version and bigger on top. Probably not a detractor for most projects, but I have read reviews that say the non-Fuel version has adequate power as is. This one is seriously powerful and I imagine would handle just about anything the M18 version would.

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.
