Milwaukee announced today the release of its new M12 Hackzall.  This is a reciprocating saw that is compact and lightweight.  It is designed for small spaces.  This Hackzall is powered by a 12V Lithium Ion battery and will cut over 80 pieces of 1.5″ PVC on one battery.  One nice feature is this Hackzall looks like it utilizes Milwaukee’s Quik-Lok feature, so you know the blade will stay in place.  The trigger is a variable speed trigger, so you can adjust the speed for the material you are working on.

Some of the spec are:

  • SPM 0-3,000
  • Stroke Lenght – 1/2″
  • Weight – 2.6lbs.

We are trying to get our hands on one to test this tool.  Take a look at our power tool reviews to see what we have tested so far.
