Milwaukee hackzall 2625-21

About $200, 5.6 pounds; Milwaukee

This one-handed saw is just the thing for work in tight or tough spots, like between studs, under cabinets, or overhead. The unique orientation of the motor keeps the saw short, giving you greater access in exchange for slightly less running time than the bigger tools. The motor's housing doubles as a forward grip when you need two-handed control. We appreciate the LED, but we'd like to see a blade brake and a pivoting shoe.
