Default Sawzall blade follow up

Hey all, those that got the free Lennox blades several years back, and anyone else using a sawzall regularly,
Are the Lennox blades the way to go for cutting up cars? If not, what brand do you recommend?

Between the 'honey do" projects and my own I use a Sawzall a lot. I've had the best luck with Milwaukee brand. The blades for cutting metal hold up well and they are available about anywhere, including my local hardware store.

yea, milwaukee for any expendable tooling. i generally use the 1/16" diablo cut off wheels on a 4.5" ryobi grinder for most of my car cutting up stuff. cleaner lines than sawzall.

I only recently bought a Milwaukee sawzall.. it came with a blade and I bought a pack of Diablo blades because they seemed to be the best Home Depot had on their shelf.. so far no complaints, but all i've cut is a 35 year old exhaust from a Datsun..

Diablo and Milwaukee blades (The Torch is the Shiznit)... for cutting up cars... I've done a fair share of cutting up VW's that had no parts left of value...

For what it's worth, I've done a ditch of cutting, and I like Milwaukee sawzall blades and Diablo circular blades (low speed wet chopsaw).

Thanks guys! I won't be using it too often, but there are spots nothing else can get to.
