You must be talking about the old model of Makita corded. I have two of the jr3070ct and they are awesome. 15 amps and very little vibration. I have used Milwaukee and Porter Cable in the past but the Makita is my current favorite.Find an old Milwaukee Super Sawzall, they are the best, whatever you do don't get a corded Makita or Ridgid unless you like the vibrations....lol

Cordless? I could care less. We currently use the Dewalts by default. I have not been very impressed with the cordless models by any of the manufacturers.
If your Hilti rep can't get your saw fixed or replaced for you gratis, then you have a crappy rep.I have a Milwaukee and a Hilti......The hilti has a problem with blades popping out when the material you are cutting causes vibration (like sheet metal) so for me the Milwaukee is the best....Im talking corded sawzalls.
I also have a Dewalt cordless that is a POS and is only usefully for cutting 1/2" drywall and maybe some ABS plumbing pipe...It completely lacks power and battery life.
Yeah I need to try some of the newer Makita tools as every old makita I used was JUNK. Kinda like the new Milwaukee and Porter Cable stuff now.
If your last one lasted 15yrs, why mess with a good thing? Your own "hands on" would say it was a good tool, yes? Isn't that your answer, buy another.Sawzall just died, whats a good HD brand currently?
Last Tiger Saw lasted 15 yrs, was thinking Makita or Milwaukee.
