Re: RIP Super Sawzall


I have owned almost every brand sawzall made, the only one that has ever lasted over 3 years is my Hilti, seven years so far.

Re: RIP Super Sawzall


I bought a new Bosch a couple months ago after I got sick of my gutless Dewalt. I forget the model but its the bigger one of the bunch. Its a beauty.

Yep, the Dewalt is a joke. Mine keeps going though and I don't treat it gently.

I've got 2 Bosch RS7's on my trailer and they have both been through hell. Very good saws.

Not a fan of the Makita. It's too big and heavy with too much throw for smaller more delicate work.

Re: RIP Super Sawzall


I think I have 4 or 5 working recip saws. Makita is my go to for most things. Ryobi for cutting roots in post holes (with a pruning blade). Delicate cuts and tight places I used to use a HF one they don't make any more - all orange. Compact, lightweight, short throw. What they have now isn't as compact and light weight.

I hate it when I try to kill a tool I don't like and it won't die.

I took that pathetic excuse for a tool back and got the corded Milwaukee. I did only get the 13amp version.

Re: RIP Super Sawzall


I've got the same super sawzall I've had for around 20 years and it's still going strong.
Did a demo a couple of years ago of an old factory.Bought three DeWalts at Fastenal because they were on sale.None of them lasted 2 weeks but my Millwaukee is still hanging in there.Those were the only Dewalt tools I have ever bought except for a compound miter saw.Not real thrilled with it but it's held up well.

Funny you say that. I hated mine since I got it. After a few years I started trying to burn it up, I abused it as much as I could, It would get so hot you could barely hold it but it would keep on running.

I gave up on it and bought a new one anyway. It was just to underpowered.
