Pro Tool Review

In this issue I have the opportunity of reviewing the Milwaukee M12 12 Volt Lithium-ion Hackzall Reciprocating Saw Kit:

 ​
Model Number 2420-21 
Item #: 1270-409

This easy to use tool from Milwaukee is a versatile reciprocating saw. It features a handy 11” body, which allows it to be used in much tighter spaces than other full sized saws. It weights only 2.6 pounds. The set includes the recip saw, a 1.5 AH REDLITHIUM battery, an M12 Lithium-ion charger as well as a contractor bag. 

Some of the features of this saw are the tool-less, keyless Quik-Lok blade clamp. A simple twist of the control and you are locked and loaded. Another good feature is the variable speed trigger, with speeds of 0-3,000 strokes per minute. Stoke length is an impressive ½”. There is a built in LED light and a battery gauge on the side of the body as well as a lockout control.

The tool is designed to be used with one hand in tight, awkward spaces. The tool offers the same ruggedness as the rest of the Milwaukee family, with non-slip handles and common sense engineering. The 1.5 AH battery lasts a considerable amount of time between charges but having a spare battery (optional) is my personal recommendation.

I tested the M12 on a variety of materials including drywall, plywood and PVC pipe and was impressed with the performance. All in all a rugged, quality product that works great for pruning, as well as a myriad of other reciprocating work. 

 Reasonably priced and ruggedly built, I definitely give the Milwaukee M12 Hackzall my TINTO recommendation (Tools I Need To Own). 

Until next time,
