The slim design makes it a good choice for use in tight spaces such as cabinets and ceilings.
Design and build
Right out of the box, you will notice how heavy the Milwaukee 2621-20 – At a weight of 7.4 lbs, the mini Sawzall is a bit heavy. But the good thing is that this weight helps it to deliver more power. You don’t have to push it too hard.The small sawzall features an ergonomic handle that makes it suitable for use for long hours.
The cordless saw comes with an all-metal housing that is strong enough and can stand against a lot of abuse. The tool comes with a hard plastic casing that makes it sturdily-made and durable. The fact that it’s cordless means you will not need to keep dragging a tool around.
The tool has pretty good battery life. It will not run out of power in the middle of a project. When you buy this battery-operated sawzall, you get a case and a multi-charger.
Like many other tools from Milwaukee, this sawzall is driven by a brushless motor. This motor ensures longer run time, cooler running, and a durable motor. Being on the heavier side, this tool has no vibration. The tool also features an adjustable shoe that enables you to adjust the blade stroke distance. It also enables you to vary the position of the blade in a different and sharper part.
The tool also uses an elliptical motion providing you with an option between the elliptical or straight reciprocal. The latter is a bit more aggressive and enables faster cutting. However, it can jerk you a bit when cutting tuff materials such as steel.
The sawzall tool comes with a QUICK-LOCK blade lever that ensures the fast-changing of the blade. However, the one area where there seems to have a problem is in the holding blades. When using the thicker blades, these will at times pop out.
The RedLink intelligence feature can efficiently manage power consumption and prevent overheating, for safer work. To ensure that a sudden shutdown doesn’t occur, the RedLithium XC battery will show you how much power is remaining. The saw also comes with a counter-balance feature that helps to reduce vibration.
The Milwaukee 2621-20 Reciprocating Saw features an 18 V motor that can operate at a maximum speed of 3,000 SPM to complete many tasks fast. The saw comes with a pruning blade that will easily blast through a wide range of materials used in construction, fast demolition, and landscaping work.
The tool will easily cut materials with a diameter of 3. However, it will be a bit slower when cutting those with a diameter of 4 to 6. No matter what you cut, it will power through it easily. You will regularly need to ease off on the trigger to control the accuracy as the saw will cut through the wet pressure treated, something that the normal reciprocating saws don’t do.
The small reciprocating saw will deliver a faster cutting speed and last longer as compared to the competition. The POWERSTATE brushless motor has more cutting power that is almost equal to that of a corded tool.
• Gear locking clutch. The tool features a gear locking clutch that minimizes wear and tear of the tool. It also has a debris protection seal that ensures unwanted materials don’t get into the gear housing.
• Adjustable shoe. This ensures an extended sawzall blade life and better access to the different parts of the blade.
• Led light. This helps you to easily work in dark areas.
• Rafter hook. Enables you to hang the tool when not in use
When it comes to the power of the cordless reciprocating saw, the Milwaukee M18 is among the best. With this small sawzall, you can easily climb the roof without worrying about tripping over a cord. This is even though you will get the same power as you would get in a corded tool as it performs the same as the corded tools. With an adjustable shoe, you don’t have to worry when the shoe pivots as you can easily adjust the shoe length.
The manufacturer would have done better by including orbital action. However, when you consider the many great features in this tool you understand why this isn’t a deal-breaker. While its price is on the higher side, overall, this is a great sawzall that that is worth the money. Therefore, if you want to buy a reciprocating tool, this is an option that is worth considering.
