I have been fighting some metal cuts and I didn't even think about my sawzall. Lenox Gold edge blades are what we have been testing for extrication at the FD. They work awesome. Get the 14 tpi blades though.

A sawzall is great for certain things..I love mine, but I also love my plasma cutter,torch,chop saw, and grinder. They all have their place in the shop...
