Milwaukee M12 HACKZALL

Price: $130; milwaukeetool.com

Highlight: Battery fuel gauge

My two cents: "Sailed through softer materials, like wood and plastic, never bogged down when it hit a nail, and even handled black gas pipe. The weight of the motor between the blade and grip with the weight of the battery behind your grip feels good."

Specs: 12 volts (10.8 volts under load), 2.65 pounds, variable speed up to 3,000 strokes per minute, ½-inch stroke length, built-in LED, 5-year tool warranty.
