FREE SHIPPING - Milwaukee Reciprocating Sawzall - 12 Amp, 1 1/8in. Stroke, Model# 6519-31
one of the best recip saws i have ever used, the quick change blade clamp is among the easiest to operate, the only thing that would make this saw better is a tooless clamp to move the foot in and out

30 years commercial use and still going
I am a firm believer in buying tools that will hold up under typical working conditions. I bought this saw for my husband after several cheaper brands failed after little use. He used it for 20 years in the HVAC trade. Since his death, I continue to use this saw for numerous jobs around the farm. There are some jobs that just need more power than a cordless can give. Milwaukee continues to be the best in our house.

Never Quits ALTHOUGH I WISH IT WOULD
I have owned this saw much longer than I care to remember and maybe that's because of what I do with it. To give you an example. I am remodalling an old grainery into a woodworking shop that sits on some farm property, it is attached to an open garage type structure for farm equipment. To make a long story short, as I began the project I discovered that the grainery walls were built out of the old wide 2"x4's and get this, the 2"x4" walls were constructed with the 2"x4" laying flat, stacked more that 8' tall upon one another.In side the grainery cross walls were built every 12' the same way. Now imagine cutting thru these walls with huge spikes everywhere to hold them together. 6 windows where cut in,3 doors were cut in and the 4 cross walls inside had huge openings cut in them also and where headered off to open it up.
Guess what tool cut the 100's of feet of opening thru the flatt 2"x4" walls with spikes everywhere. AND THIS IS ALREADY AFTER MANY RELIABLE YEARS OF OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE DOING TORTURING WORK LIKE THIS.
You guessed it--- THE MILWAUKKEE 12 AMP RECIPROCATING SAW.---I don't know if I'd rather be it or be me using it!!
DOES ANYTHING ELSE NEED TO BE SAID ABOUT THE QUALITY AND SHEER GUTS OF THIS TOOL AND IT'S MAKERS?

Additional support for vehicle extrication
This saw along with the metal cutting saw is being used by the volunteer fire district for extrication of trapped people in vehicle accidents. The first saw ordered was received and it never even tried to start. Northern Tool exchanged the saw and varied their policy since this was a critical item and shipped the replacement prior to the defective unit being returned. This replacement saw works very well and it is especially nice to be able to purchase blades designed for it that are specially made for extrication purposes. The normal metal cutting blades work well, but the extrication blades are better for the fire district use. The saw works very well on our small generator and is very rugged. The extra cutting length of stroke makes this unit special for our use.

We have only used this a couple of times since receiving but it reallly came in handy! Had to cut a counter top and it went right through it like it was butter! Can't wait to use it again!

Milwaukee Reciprocating Sawzall
I have had this tool for several years and it has always done the job. An essential tool for the home handyman.

I have used a lot of reciprocating saws over the years, but I never had one as good as this Milwaukee. I have been using this model almost everyday for five years and have never had a problem. I have used other brands,some alot more expensive and never had one last over two or three years.Ihave not even had to have the front end regreased on this one and usually I had to have the others worked on in the first year. So when this one finally gives out I know what saw I'll be looking to buy!!!

Flaws not recognized
The trigger switch began to malfunction early at it has dead spots. My Milwaukee shop saw also had switch problems. The service shop that repaired both of my tools said this was a very common problem with this brand but that they were not admitting it was a problem so they did not have to provide new replacement switches. I have already gone through two Milwaukee switches and my aftermarket switch I found has proven to last longer than the OEM. Milwaukee should guard their reputation by paying attention to what is being repaired the most at service centers so they can make corrections and keep customers happy and willing to buy more Milwaukee products.
