    Sounds like a nice tool, I don’t know if it would hold up against my Milwaukee fuel though

    Why is that?

    I’ve had a chance to use both, the makita feels a bit underpowered compared to the fuel, plus the Milwaukee has the oscillating option. I only have the generation 1 fuel so I’m sure the one key model is even better, with a few added bells and whistles.

    @kswiss,

    The Milwaukee must be heck of a tool if you think its better than the Makita! I personally love mine, so it would take quite a bit to beat it. As for the oscillating motion, I don’t really know if I miss the feature or not. For lighter work (read: cordless tool!) it hasn’t been a issue. I still think that the next time I do much demo, I’ll be opting for the big 15A AVT Makita….but perhaps I’ll use the cordless and see just how useful the oscillation actually is.

    but I love their big corded avt reciprocating saw.

    That big 15 amp is the best on the market and has been for a few years now, That AVT is killer.

    I agree. Its a seriously powerful tool…and the vibration control is top notch as well.
