21November 2021

ANDREW: Today on Stuff We Love we're talking
about a cordless hacksaw from Milwaukee. Josh, why do we like this… JOSH: "Hackzall," Andrew.
ANDREW: "Hack-zall" JOSH: Not "hacksaw" JOSH: You got 'er. There's a lot of things that I
like about this, you know I'm a huge Milwaukee fan if you've been watching
the shows, but this tool I've been waiting for because it literally acts as
a corded sawzall with a battery. With the short stubbiness of it you can
ANDREW: It's tiny! JOSH: Yeah, 16 inches on center feel how lightweight it is. I mean that's a
five volt battery on there. One-handed operation, and I… for me one-handed
operation I like to do light plumbing and electrical at my house and when I do
that, I'm cutting a pipe you know it's hard to do with the sawzall when you're
two handing would and use ANDREW: Right, you just hold it
JOSH: something like that, yeah, PVC ABS, JOSH: so you could cut metal
ANDREW: Very cool with this thing if you wanted to.

branches. I'm sure you got a lot of trees on your property
ANDREW: That's actually what I use my my recip saw most for is just taking out a few
low hanging branches JOSH: No, it totally works out, you can cut really deep
with that. 3000rpm. 7/8" stroke on it. And what I like about the
short stroke is when you're actually plunging into something…
ANDREW: yeah you can be accurate JOSH: Yeah, more accurate, and then you're not jabbing that other piece ANDREW: Right, right
JOSH: you know, and that's not good on the tool to do that so with the shorter stroke that's
why I like that on there so and also it's got the variable speed trigger on
it, so they had a different version of this but this one is more heavy-duty
it's got the nice grip on top and it's got four times less vibration so, and it
cuts 50% faster and all of its competitors out there.

ANDREW: Alright, uh, so what
does it cost? JOSH: $149, bare tool.
ANDREW: Okay, bare tool. And you can go on there's a bunch of people selling the tool, so this is to add to
your collection, ANDREW: Right, your massive Milwaukee colleciton. JOSH: Yeah, so, I don't need any batteries
ANDREW: Very cool. Let's give it a try Throw on ear protection here.
JOSH: Uh, safety glasses. ANDREW: don't worry I'm always safe. ANDREW: Ready?
JOSH: Yep. ANDREW: Very cool. I like the uh, I LIKE THE
JOSH: Yeah, yeah ANDREW: I like the adjustable shoe JOSH: yeah it tilts back and forth, it doesn't tip. It's not depth-wise but you're right it's adjustable from
forward to back, yeah. It's a nice collection to add so it seems like
do you know if they're old one wasn't brushless is that part of the weight
reduction here no I don't know that honestly if that one was I was paying
attention to mostly this one here but something I do love about Milwaukee tool
