Handy and easy to handle
I bought the M12 Hackzall primarily to do light pruning on shrubs and trees. I thought it would be faster than using a traditional pruning saw for little jobs that are too small to use a chain saw. As it turns out it works very well for my intended purpose. I use a pruning blade for those jobs. Now that I have it I've also found myself using it for small building/remodeling projects (with various blades) in place of my full size reciprocating saw. My only quibble is a small one: the mechanism for changing the blade is a bit awkward. But that's a minor issue. All and all I am very pleased with this small recip saw.

Buy it.
Does everything my old 18v Sawzall could do.

Straight cut instead of orbital, which as a plumber, I like.

Much better balance than a sawzall

How much does the saw weigh? Is it the same size as the 18v version?
Giff on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is pretty light weight it I think around 3lbs without the battery 4 with the 4.0hr extended battery. It's noticeably smaller than the m18 version. I also chose this one after reading nasty reviews of the m18 version and I've become a bit of a fuel brushless odor snob as the m18 does not have brushless. It about 11inches tool only and the motor housing is smaller for fitting in tighter spaces. This was not a replacement for big demo projects requiring a full size sawzall but it has very successfully cut through wood and screws as well as pvc and conduit.
I would highly recommend this if you have smaller cutting project or working in tighter spaces like between floor joists, studs, or under cabinets as its compact and easily controllable with one hand.

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.
