If the guys commentating about quarterfinal matchups are called Sportscasters, what’s my title if I have the call for the tool version of the quarterfinals, a Toolcaster? I’ll have to think about that. In any event, over the last few weeks, I’ve been telling you a lot about our own Elite 8 – a shootout […]
Milwaukee recently introduced the newest addition to its M18 lineup with the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Metal-Cutting Circular Saw. Like its M18 siblings, the new metal-cutting saw features Milwaukee’s PowerState brushless motor, RedLithium battery, and RedLink Plus electronics which communicate to prevent overload and overheating. The saw is designed to cut a wide range of small […]
Since this year’s World of Concrete, Makita’s done a nice job of building the mystique of the forthcoming Makita 18V X2 Brushless Rear-Handle Circular Saw, which the company claims is the world’s first cordless rear-handle circular saw. It’s a 36V tool that runs on Makita’s 18V LXT platform, meaning it uses two Makita 18V batteries […]
DeWalt recently announced the new DeWalt XR 20V Max Compact Recip Saw optimized for use with forthcoming XR Reciprocating Saw Blades.

The Makita XRJ06M 18V X2 LXT Brushless Recipro Saw won our recent cordless reciprocating saw shootout, but it wasn’t without competition – even from within the Makita brand itself.

Back in 1951, Milwaukee Tool invented the first electric hacksaw that would be able to saw through anything and hence named it the Sawzall. A lot has changed in the past 65 years, but the concept is still the same – use electrical power to move the blade back and forth quickly and replace the […]
In the past several months, Makita has released two new brushless reciprocating saws. The larger model is on their two-battery 18V X2 LXT platform and was the winner of our recent cordless reciprocating saw shootout.
