Comments about 360 Degree Rotating Handle Orbital Super Sawzall Reciprocating Saw:

This is a typical Milwaukee product. I first used a sawzall about 30 years ago. It was a Milwaukee and I thought it was awesome. The quality and power was great then and it still is, now.I wouldn't buy any other! My first cut was through a 4X4. I went through it like butter. Finally buying this saw just made my day! It's fantastic.

        Milwaukee's back!!This thing's a beast.This thing will cut anything you put in front of it,and then some.I've only used it to demo walls in a house,so far.I only used half the speed and no orbital action,because,I didn't need it.This saw is like a dragster on a quarter mile track.It will cut as fast as your capability of controlling the unit,will allow.Do you have an armored tank to cut in half? If so,this is the tool fr you.Best design,I've ever used.

          Comments about 360 Degree Rotating Handle Orbital Super Sawzall Reciprocating Saw:

          CPO customer service is 100% top notch and our company will continue to purchase tools from them. On the other hand, Milwaukee products have seemed to slip in product quality.

          Switch design is poor quality based on experience with two units tested. Both had bad switches which should be sweeping variability within a range of 0-3000RPM. …USA components??

          Starting from 0, startup controllability is unpredictable. Sometimes it starts smooth; sometimes it ramped up to full power then back to slow speed. At this point, having a tool jolt from the high torque doesn't aid in precise cuts. What if you're cutting a piece of aluminum trim which require slow start cuts so not to grab the material or distort it? Forget using this tool if that is the case. For demolition, sure it works, so does a chainsaw! On a positive note, the tool seems stout and appears to work well for general cutting (which is probably most tasks it would be used for).

          Spoke with tech (which appeared attentive to my concerns asking to hold the tool before sending it back to CPO after viewing the video, he may want to take it in for further testing).

          After tech viewed video, a few units at Milwaukee were tested of which he noted he experienced the same "control" or lack of. NO sense in exchanging for a "working unit" at that point since it will exhibit the same results. Video is located at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl8ncnmN38Q

          Tech stated that the tool is not meant to be a precision controlled tool and did not have an answer as to how to rectify the problem. He was taking up these issues with "Engineering". My comment was why have sweepable variable control? In addition, a fine-tune control to adjust speeds to a smaller band (which is usually for more control). Furthermore, tech commented that these are the same switches used in other D-handle tools such as their drills. I commented surely those drills are used for precision. He did not state whether those tools had the same problems that we both experienced (he did not test any of them at the time of our phone discussion).

          Based on feedback and noting I would not be able to have a tool which operated correctly; my decision was to abandon this tool and purchase a Makita JR3070CT. I am also hesitant to purchase further power-tools from Milwaukee which use these controls. We use in our shop about 10 other Milwaukee tools which are older in design but work fantastic. It's a shame that I can't rely on their products anymore.

          So you may feel after reading, I'm just a disgruntled buyer. As with all responses take mine with a grain of salt, hopefully your purchasing experience is better than mine. I'm actually quite attentive and attempted to work towards a working solution as I really wanted to stay with the Milwaukee name as we've used their tools for years without problems.

          I am awaiting a response from Milwaukee Engineering as to if this problem has been overlooked for some time, or if it's a "lot" (production run) of poor quality control from the switch manufacturer. My background is Mechanical Engineering; I would revisit the switch design/manufacturer and attempt to rectify the apparent inherent problem. Hopefully, Milwaukee's Engineering department listens to suggestions and considers more testing before a tool as such is approved for production.

          Questions & Answers

           

          New Vs. Reconditioned

          Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

          • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
          • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
          • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
            New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
