M12 Hackzall Mini Reciprocating Saw Review
The Milwaukee M12 Hackzall delivers power-tool performace to tedious handwork without sacrificing accuracy
This little tool felt as if it were converting every drop of juice from its small 12v battery into pure cutting power. The offset motor truncates the 2 1/2-lb. saw, keeping you close to the work and creating a pommel that allows you to push the tool against the work to reduce vibration and to increase accuracy. The tool’s sightlines are excellent from every angle. Blades are changed using a conventional twist collar, but pinching and turning the collar a full 90º to release the jaw isn’t easy, especially when wearing gloves. With power and balance, this saw’s parts work in harmony.
