Milwaukee Sawzall Model 6519-31
Milwaukee recently introduced an all new version of the ever popular Sawzall Reciprocating Saw. The all new Sawzall models have been improved to cut up to 2x faster and last 2x longer than their older models. Considering the amazing reputation of these tools to out perform the competition over the years the latest versions are sure to continue that legacy.
Sawzall Model 6519-31 Features:
- 1-1/8” Stroke Length
- 12 Amp Motor
- 0-3,000 SPM
- Gear Protecting Clutch
- Large Quik-Lok® Clamp
- 7.3 lbs
- 19” Length
- Includes 6519-31 SAWZALL® Recip Saw, Blade and Case
We tested the all new 6519-31 Sawzall reciprocating saw with a 1-1/8″ stroke. This is our tool of choice for demolition work as it offers a very aggressive cutting stroke for quickly cutting wood, metal, plastic and misc debris.
Right out of the case the 6519-31 feels solid, well built and heavy-duty. This reciprocating saw has an average weight at 7.3 lbs with a very comfortable forward grip and trigger assembly. The long heavy-duty cord is a must have feature on this type of tool.
The Quik-Lok® Clamp is very easy to use making blade changes quick and painless. I definitely prefer this type of blade clamp over the lever type that are present on other brands.
I’ve been using Sawzall’s for years and it’s hard to find much to improve on them. This latest version seems to cut quite a bit quicker and more aggressive compared to older versions. Frankly that’s a welcome feature when demolition is typically a race against time in order to turn a profit. Honestly I can say there’s nothing I would change on this new version.
If you’re looking for a well built, solid reciprocating saw then the original Sawzall is still the tool of choice in my opinion. Check out the new 6519-31 and consider it the top of the list. Priced at $119 on average this is a great value and a tool that will last. These guys have been making the reciprocating saw since 1951 and continue to lead the pack.
