handy for smaller spaces then the sawzall
Pros: Handy saw. Like the one handed use. Beats doing it by hand. Light. Good for overhead use. Vibration isn't bad. Blade changes are easy. Good price.
Cons: Wish the shoe had the tilting surface. Maybe a little more saw blade movement. More small saw blades in the carbide flavour would be good too. Also would be nice to see some official training/safety vids from Milwaukee on this one.
The only problem I have, it is DIFFICULT to remove the battery, The red catches do not clear properly, I have to have it running to remove the battery, sure would like to correct this situation
I’m a professional plumber. Just know I “use” this tool, I say that because it goes in most places that most people wouldn’t even go. It has been a great tool so far had it less than a year but I took it to a supply house today to have it sent in because it only works some if you hit the blade with your hand to give it a jump start. I believe the brushless version might be better. Just a side note as a plumber I have only used cheap tools until last year when I bought all Milwaukee tools because they have quality tools. I do have the brushless grinder and it works way better than the other tools I have that are not brushless. I will still buy more tools and I hope to have my entire truck stocked with more of the Milwaukee products. I love the packout it’s been great and keeps me organized.
I work in a residential apartment complex with over 450 units. I purchased a combo mostly for the hackzall itself. The kit came with a hammer drill impact drill hackzall flashlight three batteries and a charger. I have had the set for over 3 years and wouldn’t think of purchasing any other brand. The m18 hackzall has all the power you need and more. I have used it to cut flooring casings wood and metal studs copper brass cast iron steel and this saw gets the job done every time. It has been dropped covered in dust dirt and has gotten wet all while delivering the same amount of power as the day I got it.
