The 6538-21 SAWSZALL is an extremely powerful, versatile reciprocating saw. It serves many purposes and tasks -- but does all well. It is well-balanced, comfortable tool that is never challenged in completing the task at hand. The tool will challenge the operator's ability to hold on to the tool before it will stall on the job -- nothing is too much for it, but it also works quietly comfortably at low RPMs doing small tasks as well. The tool is not lightweight, but the balance is so good that the weight doesn't impact its usefullness except for long periods of continuous work. Milwaukee pioneered in this technology, and the company contines to offer the *absolute* best tool in the world for this purpose. Like many DIY folks, I've tried several other top brands, but none fully compares with Milwaukee, and certainly no tool made by any company is comparable to the 6538-21. This is an outstanding product in every respect.

      Comments about Milwaukee® Super Sawzall Reciprocating Saw (6536-21):

      Very powerful and great control with the orbital control. The tool is a little heavy but the power makes up for it as lighter tools in the same class are less powerful. The blade release is textured with nubs on the sides and on the forward edge of the collar so you don't have to have the blade plunger in the forward position in order to change blades. The orbital control is a slider for dialing in variable amounts of orbital action for different applications and that is my favorite part. I typically go for a more refined tool than just for power and this has plenty of power and as much refinement as you could ask for in a reciprocating saw. Being able to easily adjust how far the shoe extends is another big plus, especially when cutting metals because it allows you to use several different areas of the blade as the cutting edges dull.

        WE USE THESE SAWS IN DEMOLITIONS AND REHAB WORK AND I FIND MY SUPER SAWZALLS LAST LONGER THAN OTHER BRANDS. YES THEY ARE HEAVY BUT THAT IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU NEED POWER AND DURABILITY. IF YOU WANT A LIGHT WEIGHT SAW USE THAT ON HOME PROJECTS ONLY.

                  Powerful, sturdy, and fast. It is a tad heavy, but you won't have to hold it very long to slice through whatever it is. I've yet to find anything on the farm that it can't handle with the right blade and good technique (up to and including 2"X6"X.25" steel structural tubing).

                    I used a sazall 20 years ago and hated it, to heavy and to much vibration and it was hard to cut a straight line. Milwaukee Sawzall has come a long way.

                    I've been remodeling a pourch on a 1930's house, and there have been a lot of rotted wood and hard 16 penny nails, the Milwaukee Sawzall buzed through them quickly and with very little vibration. Cut through a 5 x 8 solid beam with ease, and a very straight line. Wish I'd gotten one sooner.

                        A very powerful saw and very durable. I use this saw. For general construction. It's even been used to prune trees and cut Tree roots. You can feel the difference of and in the power. It's a bit heavy but to be expected with something of this size. A must have for any professional.

                        Comments about Milwaukee® Super Sawzall Reciprocating Saw (6536-21):

                        The 6538-21 SAWSZALL is an extremely powerful, versatile reciprocating saw. It serves many purposes and tasks -- but does all well. It is well-balanced, comfortable tool that is never challenged in completing the task at hand. The tool will challenge the operator's ability to hold on to the tool before it will stall on the job -- nothing is too much for it, but it also works quietly comfortably at low RPMs doing small tasks as well. The tool is not lightweight, but the balance is so good that the weight doesn't impact its usefullness except for long periods of continuous work. Milwaukee pioneered in this technology, and the company contines to offer the *absolute* best tool in the world for this purpose. Like many DIY folks, I've tried several other top brands, but none fully compares with Milwaukee, and certainly no tool made by any company is comparable to the 6538-21. This is an outstanding product in every respect.

                          This tool gives you a comfortable hand position when the rest of you isn't. You can always maintain a good trigger position which is always safer. I've demolished whole structures with this tool and I've never lost the handle or had to compromise position to finish the cut. This is a quality tool that will outlast you for a very reasonable price. I also recommend their blades. I find they last longer and cut better, saving you time and money. I've bought many other Milwaukee tools based on this one and I haven't been disappointed.

                          This saw will cut through anything with the correct blades! Blade chang-out is fast and easy. It's not good for very tight awkward situations but it wasn't made for those. Mine has a twist-lock cord that detaches at the handle butt; saves time pulling up cord to disconnect.

                            I used it to cut 4x4 posts. Made a hard job go by fast. Loved the rotating handle. Shame I rented it. I am trying to find one to buy but cannot find it :(

                                I am using it for sawing away at the stump of a decent-size arborvitae shrub that died. It is easy to handle, easy to guide. So far I have used it just for cutting wood.

                                It is definitely one of my best tool investments.
