Very good deal on the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Hackzall (2719-20). This tool is regularly priced @ $159 so you're essentially getting the battery for free (which is a $70 value). I believe this is a web only price so you won't be able to do the "turn in" trick at a HD B&M store to get the tool cheaper.
Can also get this same deal @ Acme Tools:
(final price is $3 cheaper since there's no tax but you do pay for shipping; currently OOS but you can still order)
If you want it cheaper and don't want the battery you can save some money by getting it at Amazon (though Amazon is not an authorized dealer so you won't get a 5 year warranty, you'll only get a 3 year warranty):
- POWERSTATE Brushless Motor: Increased cutting speed and power throught the toughtest applications
- REDLINK Plus Intelligence: The most advanced system of cordless power tool electronics; provides optimized performance and overload protection using total sysem communication between tool, battery and charger
- REDLITHIUM battery technology: Superior pack construction, electronics and performance deliver more work per charge and more work over pack life than any battery on the market
- 1-Handed design provides superior control and versatitily over standard reciprocating saws
- 7/8 in. stroke length removes more material with each stroke resulting in the faster cuts
- Pivoting shoe provides constant contact with the work-piece resulting in smoother cuts with less bucking and vibration
- REDLINK PLUS intelligence and POWERSTATE Brushless Motor combine to provide up to 3x longer tool life than competitive one-handed recips
This tool gets good reviews across the internet and compares very well to other leading hackzall tools.
