Powerful Sawzall Alternative with Bosch Quality

Dec 14, 2009
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:- Power (11Amps!), Great fit and finish, and Excellent speed variability

Cons:Work light is dim, Blade holder tough to use with gloves

The Bottom Line: Overall, a good buy, especially if you can get it cheaper than the Milwaukee equivalent.


Purchased this saw after using a standard 6amp Milwaukee Sawzall for several years.  My reason for purchasing the Bosch model was past experiences with Bosch tools being high quality, price ($30 less than the comparable Milwaukee Super Sawzall), and innovative features such as a built-in worklight and power cord connection method (it can use any standard 3-prong cord instead of the Milwaukee proprietary power cord).

After 4-5 years of use I have had zero problems with the saw.  It is extremely powerful, I often use it to cut 1/4" steel barstock and 2" roll bar tubing and doing rough wood construction and demolition.  The construction of the tool is typical Bosch quality with excellent fit and finish overall.  Variable speed has a good range of speed and a good range of sensitivity.  Nice additional features include a built-in hanging hook and a feature to hold the cord in place and prevent it from becoming disconnected.  
There are two items which I am slightly disappointed over.  The worklight is on all the time and is dim (only 1 led).  It does help throw some light but would be highly improved with a brighter led or more of them.  I have also lost blades out of the saw on a couple occasions in tough material and they were hard to recover.  Also, the blade holder is hard to manipulate with gloves on, I do prefer the Milwaukee style release mechanism.
