The Milwaukie 6519-31 provides tough competition to entry-level, high quality reciprocating saws such as the DeWalt DW304PK. There are differentiating factors however between those saws besides the price.

The Milwaukie’s 12 amps of power is respectable, but it may be more power than needed on a daily basis. Like the DeWalt, it lacks a speed limit control, but does not include a 4-position blade clamp nor an adjustable length shoe.

The DeWalt’s 4-position clamp may not get used often, but in tight or obstructed situations, you will find it indispensable. The non-adjustable shoe of the Milwaukie saw is a relatively minor deficiency, but during demo work when you are getting blade bounce, would you rather adjust the shoe or change to a shorter blade?

Otherwise, you do get some nice features in the Milwaukie for a little more money. The blade clutch improves the life of the saw and increases operator safety. Especially if you perform cutting jobs that last more than 30 minutes, the anti-vibration technology is a must and adds to the cutting power of this reciprocating saw. The metal body is a trademark design of Milwaukie saws and does add to its aura of quality besides being able to dissipate heat better than plastic.



  • Nearly the power of Milwaukie’s more expensive models
  • Gear assembly clutch to avoid blade bind damage



  • Non-adjustable shoe
  • Lacks speed limit control
  • Blades must be purchased separately
  • Case too small to hold extra blades


Our Verdict

This is a reciprocating saw that is aimed squarely at the mid-range market with a set of serious features that extend confidence in the Milwaukie Company and the Sawzall brand. If you are a serious DIYer who seeks quality but are not quite ready to pay for a commercial saw, this tool is a great choice. That is not to say that the Milwaukee 6519-31 cannot stand up in heavy deconstruction work. It can but it lacks some features of a top-end saw.
