I tried this tool out on a 12"x3"x1/4" steel I beam. It had plenty of power and cut through it about 5 minuets on one 3 amp hour battery which I thought was really good. This Hackzall would give my corded 50th anniversary Milwaukee Sawzall a good challenge. Great tool!
So I go thru them regularly, and I abuse the crap out of them. I do plumbing for living, and their ergonomics are hard to beat. One hand operation, very decent amount of power. They are averaging about a 1 year of service, but I beat them like a drum and I cannot be happier for what I am getting for the money. If you are more of a service/electrician/do things around the house type of guy, you will easy get 2 years plus out of it. I do all 2x4/6/8, double wall plates, plywood, pvc/steel, cast iron piping, sheetrock, plaster, literally every single thing that comes to my mind. I only would use wd40 after some wet copper piping demo so they will not rust and seize overnight (something I had happen once, I left one of those soaking wet in the truck over the weekend and it took me a whole day of tricks to get it unseized, afterwards it still ran for few more months)
They are awesome. They are so affordable that I literally look at them as "disposable" and i still get more than a year out of every unit. Funny enough they last me longer than two of the brushless models did, I think they are somewhat more prone/sensitive to mechanical damage (yep, I do drop them from 6-8 foot ladders too, it just happens on the job)
