    (verified owner):

    I am an electrician and bought this so I would be able to cut EMT while holding it in one hand and the saw in the other like my co workers who have the Milwaukee version do, I didn’t want to have to purchase a new .brand of cordless tool/batteries just to have one tool so I was thrilled when I found that Makita had a one handed sawzall , My mistake on assuming it would perform anywhere near the Milwaukee. It doesn’t even come close. It severely lacks power for an 18v tool, it performs more like a 12v. The box shows a picture of someone holding a piece of 1″ 1/4 conduit getting ready to make a cut but in reality it struggles to cut through 1/2″ with a new blade and a fresh battery… This tool would be fine for plastic, thinner wood and drywall etc. If you’re going to be doing any heavier demo or planning to cut anything metal stay far away from this tool, get the Milwaukee or one of the 2 handed Makita sawzalls, I have one of those as well and it’s a beast.
