"We use a dewalt, but remembering it is there, and actually needing to use it doesnt come around that often. Thus we lose battery life. Todays exotic metals are making it more and more difficult to use the tool and we rely more on the jaws. But…"
"Corded Milwaukee.Have had it for years and have not had any problems with it.Works good with operator running the saw and another person spraying the blade with lube of some sort as you cut.Can get a long life out of a blade doing that(usually)."

For me, too many cons-
- loose metal fragments/splinters

GIve me a set of hand tools (sockets, spanners, etc) or the jaws any day...."
"Old school sawzall - reliable and works - keep extra pieces for the chuck or convert it to keyless.
Cordless milwaukee was awful (bad keyless chuck and poor battery life)
Cordless Ryobi - light duty, didn't last
Cordless Dewalt with AC adapters…"
