"We have chosen the Milwaukee 6521-21 Super Sawzall as our top reciprocating Saw for it's usability, comfort, options, quality, and price to performance ratio."

Choosing a Reciprocating Saw

HIW Rating: our rating 9.5

What can you say besides if you are a professional - "it's the only reciprocating saw to own".  Actually the Milwaukee 6521-21 Heavy Duty 11 Amp Super Sawzall is a Orbital Action saw, although we still refer to it as a reciprocating saw.  It will cut through anything from rebar and galvanized piping to tree limbs and everyday demolition work with ease.  The only other brand of saw that I would even consider is the Porter Cable.  After owning one of these saws you won't trade it for the world.  They are so smooth you can use them all day without the shock, vibration, and fatigue usually associated with a reciprocal saw.

Orbital action has been added to the Milwaukee 6521-21 Heavy Duty 11 Amp Super Sawzall reciprocating saw for even more aggressive cutting applications in wood. The orbital action selector allows the user to set the degree of orbital action for faster cutting in thick materials. This Sawzall incorporates Milwaukee's patented gear protection system which absorbs high impact forces caused by sudden blade lock-up under the most extreme cutting conditions. The counter balance system makes the model 6521-21 Super Sawzall the smoothest operating, most vibration free saw we have ever used. The trigger speed control allows you to match the speed of the tool to the application or material. It also offers the new heavy duty steel Quik-Lok™ blade clamp system which enables you to change blades fast and easy without the use of a hex wrench.  You also get their quick-disconnect power cord with this unit.

I'll admit this may be a little more than the average do-it-yourselfer needs. If you would like most of the options and smoothness of this saw you can always look at the Milwaukee 6509-22 10 Amp Sawzall Reciprocating Saw for about $60.00 less.

Tip: Always keep the shoe of your reciprocating saw firmly against the material you are cutting.  If you purchase bi-metal blades (as you should) they are easily straightened should they become bent
