Sawzall Pruning Blade

You use your Sawzall all day on the job, so why not finish the yard work with it, too?  With Milwaukee’s Sawzall pruning blades you can, and you can actually do a good job. Chuck these blades into your Sawzall or other brand of reciprocating saw to prune trees or saw green wood.

Milwaukee makes these flexible blades from high-carbon steel. They space the fleam-ground teeth — no, I didn’t just make that word up — five teeth per inch, allowing the blade to cut aggressively through green wood. The 1/2″ universal tang fits all Sawzalls and most other reciprocating saws.

A five-pack of either the 9″ or the 12″ pruning blades will run you about $20.

    My dad gave me one of these blades (a Black and Decker brand but same basic tooth setup) for my recip saw when I had my first yard-work season 4 years ago. This thing is a beast. I’ve used it for pruning the trees and cutting down weed trees. The only thing I didn’t use it for was cutting up an entire 20′ Blue Spruce that we plowed over with a Bobcat.

    Match this up with a cordless recip saw and you have a great tree trimmer. Also to the hunters out there, this combo is great for clearing shooting lanes in the woods and around your tree stand.

    I’ve used a Sawzall with a coarse demo blade for cutting out a stump. It was right on top of a gas line, so it couldn’t be dug out. It was also a spruce, so grinding it was pretty much out of the question if we were going to get a good lawn.

    After realizing that my chainsaw was going to get dull super quick by cutting sand-covered roots, I hauled out the trusty Sawzall. Worked like a charm.

    Awsome saw…..

    Sounds cool, but I just used some regular wood blades on my Sawzaw to cut out roots and they were fine.
    Most recently I got a Black and Decker GatorLopper and it can do anything. The only problem is you have to use two hands to operate it. Once you amputate a hand it is worthless.

    This thing looks awesome. Oddly, I never even thought of using the reciprocating saw to do pruning but it seems like a great idea.

    Also would seem to eliminate the problems that go along with using those blades in a pruning saw (they always seem to loosen and twist in the middle of a big cut.

    I bought a lowe’s brand of this blade. Seemed to work pretty good.

    I cut down, cut up and basically got rid of a rather large piss elm with my Sawzall and 2 of these blades. The tree was about 30′ high and had a 30″ circumference trunk. Yeah, the tree was dead, but most people would have said it was a job for a chainsaw.

    Interesting enough, Skil has one just like this known as the “UGLY”… Comes in a couple of lengths and has worked perfect for me trimming the branches of the trees… even got through Pressure Treated 4×4’s without issue as well…


  10. Andy says:

    I intended to get an UGLY blade after pruning the first few annoying branches the previous owner had neglected for a decade…I really did mean to get the blade. I still haven’t though, and aside from taking twice as long to get it done the OEM coarse blade that came with my 24v recip saw worked fine.

    The stopper was getting stuck in a mental loop debating the single pack vs the 3 pack that cost maybe 2x as much vs the assortment for $20+ but in a different (less-trustworthy) brand. I could justify one for PT 4×4’s though.

    this would be perfect for speeding up Xmas tree hunting.
