Single-Handed. For situations where you have to operate a recip saw with just one hand — because the other one is holding on to the material or a ladder — Milwaukee's new 18-volt 2625-21 Hackzall may be just the ticket. Although it comes with a full-size XC lithium-ion battery, this model can also use the brand's compact 18-volt battery. Its short 3/4-inch cutting stroke and relatively large size help it cut more smoothly than some lighter one-handed recip saws we've tried. The one-battery kit costs $210.
