Being the consummate "Do It Myselfer" I wanted a tool that would match my zeal for doing the hard jobs. I had observed my professional counter parts utilizing a demolition device that ate up lumber, nails, rebar, stucco, and virtually anything that stood in its way. I had to have one in my tool armory. I bought a Milwaukee Sawzall. Not the battery powered model but the one requiring the good old American power source, a power cord. Do you note that we do not use the word "power" in front of Lithium battery do you? I, like Tim the tool man Taylor love power!

Turning to my computer I immediately sought out the Milwaukee Tool site for information on my quest for power. Reading the reviews only increased my desire to own the Milwaukee Sawzall. The next question would rival Shakespeare inquiry, "To cord or not to cord, that was the question? Despite the many uses of the words "almost equal to it's corded counterpart" or Milwaukee's efforts to make "this cordless model to get as close as possible to the same power as its corded offerings", I knew what I had to do. For real power it had to be corded for me.

The MSRP of $185.00 did not deter me from my purchase. I was on my way to real demolition and construction. I became Super Sawzall Man. I purchased the tool for real man. I bought Model MILWAUKEE 6536-21 Orbital Super Sawzall Reciprocating Saw, a 13 amp handheld powerhouse. I was ready to demolish the world.

Changing the blades is a snap with the quick flip of the lever to replace a broken or bent blade. It is fairly easy to bend the longer reciprocating saw blades but it does not always require a new blade as all I had to do was bend the blade as straight as possible and continue work. Cutting out a wall is so easy with the Sawzall but a word of caution, check placement of electrical, television, phone wires and plumbing runs as well. The Sawzall will cut through all of them with equal ease.

Other than the fact that ear protection is required, as it should be with most power tool operation. my experience with the Milwaukee Sawzall has been a pleasure. While it is fairly loud and noisy and offers a ample amount of vibration, especially when cutting metal like 16 penny nails when removing a wall it is a tool that no home shop should be without.
