I was in a jam on a forth floor condo last week. I was moving a trap out from under a tub to the middle for a shower conversion. The concrete floor was about 12" thick and I had to reach down through an 8" hole the builder made me. I couldn't get a decent grip on anything to cut it. A regular sawzall would have resulted in another trip to the stupidist thing I have done thread. I ran around the corner to home depot and bought it. It has become my side kick. It is nice because it is small and it is held in a position that is much easier to control it in tight areas. A knuckle saver if you will.

I bought the new milwaukee 12v small sawzall a couple weeks ago. There has been 3 or 4 times now where it saved me a lot of time and hassle. I also have the reciprocating saw attachment for a dremmel tool. Its even smaller and at times, its the only way to cut out some pipe...


I wish I would have seen the one you posted. It looks a little better suited for my purposes. maybe I'll locate one and see if it is worth adding to the arsenal.

That looks pretty good, they have an even smaller one, milwakee min sawzall, tell you what, I needed it the other day to cut off a couple widespreads.

Although lithium ion batts, I wish it was a plug in. Looks like the ridgid is a plug in, how long is the actual tool??
