Battery is better
My first use of this sawzall was to take down a small tree that had died in my yard. It made it through the process without issue and on one battery. It has plenty of power as well as torque it definitely did NOT disappoint

This Sawzall is awesome. It cuts great, easy to handle, not too heavy, battery lasts a good amount of time. have used it for all kinds of applications since I bought it; trimming trees, cleaning up unwanted materials, even cutting wood for my wood working projects. Great tool. I love the Milwaukee fuel line of products. Wish I could afford to buy them all!!!!

I use it to cut my metal fence posts , cut wood posts , roots . Works great . Love how I don’t need cords and generators to run it in areas that are hard to drive or pack stuff in . I hate how easy it makes my jobs look and customers want a discount since I’m in and out ..

Solid tool
Works like a charm - built a deck, trimmed a bunch of trees, even cut a few ~12" trunk diameter pieces into logs to save getting out the chainsaw. Great tool.

Great tool “Sawzall”
So far this tool is what I used to dismantle an old 8’X8’ jacuzzi in my backyard. It ate through the wood, fiberglass and metal like a hot knife through butter with 1 fully charger battery. When the battery was put in the charger, there was still over 1/2 life left. I love this tool!!!

This was a replacement for a worn down predecessor. It only sees demo and ditch work where the band saw just does not fit. So far it has done it's job pretty well. Complaints the stall and temp shut off points seem rather low.

This is my 2nd one! Both work great!
Upgraded at work a few years back, from a corded competitor, to this Fuel M18 Sawzall. This tool is tough! If it can last three years (and counting) in this industrial application, it is sure to last a lifetime at home for personal use. A+

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.
