The Milwaukee M18 Fuel Reciprocating Saw Kit isn’t like your typical cordless reciprocating saw. The tool features Quik-Lok blade changing mechanisms that uses a spring loaded slide that can rotate to the front of the tool.
This allows you to put the blade in forward or reversed, although you cannot use it sideways. This mechanism is pretty substantial, which means you don’t have to worry about the blade releasing accidentally while the saw is in use.
The saw runs off of a 4.0 Ah battery, which when fully charged, you will be able to make upward to 80 consecutive cuts (if cutting a 2x4) with an aggressive blade. The actual number of cuts you’ll be able to make on a single, fully charged tool will depend on the material you’re cutting.
The tool features an adjustable foot that pivots that you can control with a lever that is easily accessible on either side of the tool.

There were a few people who were not impressed with the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Reciprocating Saw Kit. These people commented that the battery takes too long to charge, and it doesn’t hold a charge after using the tool for a month.
Some people commented that their tool did not come with the hard plastic tool case, but instead came with a bag. One customer reported that their tool would hesitate or shut off completely when trying to run the tool at full throttle.
