I have a milwaukee hatchet sawzall. It has a 3/4 inch stroke and orbital. It runs on v18lith or 18 volt Nicads. I rarely use my milwaukee 9.5 amp super sawzall. Runtime is very good.NiNe O said:I nominate batt recips for the garbage pile.
The LiIon I have for the Craftsman one is not 3 Ah. It's the older 2 Ah battery. I know this because I just got the new 4 Ah battery this weekend and it's double the watt hours.If your cordless saw can cut around four 2x8s before exhausting a 3.0Ah battery, won't it be able to cut like five or six 2.8s on a 4.0Ah battery? I do not think that will make a very big difference to most circular saw buyers. It will be helpful for other tools, but saws need a really big improvement in battery technology which will take time.
i use to have the makita cordless 18v, want a pile!! i got the ridgid cordless and its a great little saw with more power then any other 18v cordless i ever used. its great for going jobsite to jobsite and great for jobs with no power and the large ridgid batteries last forever.
