MilwaukeeMilwaukee Tool continues to expand its award-winning FUEL offering with the introduction of its most powerful 12V Reciprocating Saw.

Delivering more run time, up to 70 percent faster cutting and 6x longer tool life, the M12 FUEL HACKZALL recip saw has a compact, lightweight design for one-handed operation in tight spaces, and features reduced vibration for increased control and accuracy, the company says.

As with all M12 FUEL products, Milwaukee says the new HACKZALL also delivers superior power, run-time and durability with three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations-the Powerstate Brushless Motor, Red Lithium XC4.0 Battery Pack and Redlink Plus Intelligence Hardware and Software.

“This increased performance opens up an application range that 12V recips have not been able to perform in the past,” says Tom Simeone, group product manager for Milwaukee Tool Corporation. “It will handle some of the more challenging cuts in which users would have once had to switch to an 18V tool, such as cuts through dimensional lumber.”

The HACKZALL also lives up to Milwaukee’s durability with an all-metal gear case and dual gear design, the company says. The saw will be available in May.
