A beast that tackles any job.
First, like other CPO reconditioned tools that I've purchased, this one arrived looking and performing as if it were brand new.

After buying and returning the 11-amp Sawzall because it was underpowered, I should've known better and strapped on seat belts before using this random orbital, variable speed monster. My first job with it was breaking down an old saw horse, made of 2 x 4's, particle board, and 3 inch nails. At 2/3 power, orbital mode, the saw sliced through a composite layer of
3 two by fours (complete with nails), as if it were a hot knife through butter. The only con to mention is that, like its 1/2 Magnum drill cousin, until one is used to it's power, hold on tight and be alert. I find this the perfect saw for any rapid demolition work, although I'm certain that in straight-cut mode, it probably does a decent job in routine metal-cutting, wood cross-cutting, etc. Just be sure to purchase a good variety of high-quality blades. The saw almost overpowers the cheaper ones.

Great Product and the Price is RIGHT!
I was very pleased with the product I received. It was refurbished, but looks absolutely new. [...] This is my 2nd Milwaukee tool, and this is definitely the best source for the right product at the right price.

Outstanding, I love it!!!!!!!!!!
Replaced 22 windows in my home. Cut the old nail fin and caulking like hot butter. Can't believe I didn't buy this saw sooner. I was worried about this saw getting the job done. It took the work out of this project. I love the power this saw has. I would pay full price for this saw and not think twice about it, knowing what I know now.

Someone wanted mine worse than me
They must be darn good because this is the second Sawsall they've broken into the shop and stolen. I'm getting another 15 amp Super Sawsall, because I can use it for a chain saw, metal saw, remodeling, enclosing the old screened front porch, and lots more. You need the correct blade for the job, so you'll soon have $60+ worth of blades, but excepting concrete, rocks and glass, this beast will cut anything. Get used to the power and speed of cutting. No other recip saw made has as much power and cutting speed. The 15 amp model isn't light, but it vibrates less than 10 amp models of other brands. I can't afford to be without one, especially the reconditioned models which save lots of $$$. I am tired of them being stolen, but that's because even crooks know what they will do, and they can turn them in 5 minutes. With the scroll blade, this monster will do some "jig-saw" work where the jig saw won't do the job. If you're planning on remodling an old house, you need a Sawsall. Other brands of recip saws just aren't a Sawsall. It DOES Saws All.

Great Product!
I bought this to replace an old Milwaukee Saw-zaw and this one makes me realize how badly our old one needed to be replaced. This saw has plenty of power and a great feel in your hands. The only draw back for the power is the weight. All in all this is a great tool.

BEST ANSWER: Orbital refers to the handle having the ability to be rotated.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
