Milwaukee Double Duty Upgrade Sawzall Blades

Milwaukee® Announces Double Duty Upgrade™

Milwaukee Double Duty Upgrade Sawzall Blades . . . boy that’s a mouthful.  What does it mean?

The folks who brought us the Sawzall reciprocating saw have recently upped the ante on their reciprocating blades.   Called the Double Duty Upgrade™ these new blades promise to deliver 2X more life than Milwaukee current generation blades.   Two types of blades are coming out: a thin kerf profile blade for fast, flexible cuts and a demo blade profile, known as The TORCH™, for tough, straight cuts.

Milwaukee Double Duty Upgrade Sawzall Blades:

Milwaukee engineers have come up with several new to the world approaches to making their sawzall blades stronger at their weak spots.  One feature is a new stamped honeycomb pattern throughout the body of the blade called Grid Iron™.  This pattern increases blade rigidity, making it the a much stiffer metal cutting SAWZALL® blade.

Both of the blade profiles feature a deep stamp design in the tang of the blade, where it connects to the tool, appropriately named Tough Neck ™. Engineered to protect against breakage.  All of the blades I’ve ever broken happen at the tang so I’m looking forward to seeing this in action!

These Milwaukee Double Duty Upgrade sawzall blades are sure to be a hit at the job site!  I plan on testing a few of these blades out over the next few months and will let you know what I find out.
