Milwaukee 6509-31 12 Amp Sawzall Reciprocating Saw: Demo made easy

Jan 26, 2012

Milwaukee’s sawzall is so ubiquitous as the tool of choice in reciprocating saw arena, that like xerox,  everyone simply asks for a sawzall when they need to buy one. Over the years I have

owned a few of these, many have “magically” walked off my job sites when I wasn’t looking, I guess they are that popular.

Sawzalls are truly great saws. Hands down the best feature of this saw is the quick release mechanism for the blades. I have owned a Rigid as well as a Dewalt and both have a lifting lever that is made from plastic and without fail that handle seems to break on day 366, just as the warranty goes kaput. So, it is only a matter of time until that plastic piece breaks off.

Sawzall uses a metal rotating knob that is built to last and take a beating. Couple that with a 12 amp motor and a long 3/4″ cutting length and you see why this saw is such a workhorse. I have used it to demo out walls, cut 4″ old iron plumbing pipe, tear through PVC, and trim trees. There is very little this versatile saw can’t do.
