Jeff, try cutting a tree next to any gravel road (within 20 feet of the road) in Wisconsin. You'll find sand all the way up the tree. The reason? Snowplows in winter, and just regular gravel dust the remaining 3 months of the year.

In a while, Chet.

I suggest using a bag or a condom with a slit in it over the blade guard
Where did that come from??? Too funny...

Rob Keller I've cut up many many cars & even more metal with a sawzall {reciprocating saw} .

Use a pruning blade like this{watch you fingers!}

Mustangsally I will trade you straight up my makita {plus another parts one both with cases}for your Milwaukee! mine always spits out the blade

Most likely the chainsaw got dirt in the chain & ate up the blade.

I also use my cordless to trim limbs I keep that in my truck.

What size is the stump?

Smittydpd Will work fine, just keep out the dirt, very bad juju!

Mustangsaly I have a milwake and a makita electrial sawsall. I'm a electrician, but beeing disabled I don't do much. but I've cut about anything a sawsall will cut. awsome tool. ooh yeah I like the makita much better. I think its the stroke. I bought my grandms car when she quit driving, it was a 77 Plymouth Fury III and the chrome rear bumper was bent. I got a replacment bumper, but could not get to two of the bolts the way the bumper was bent. so I cut 1/2 the bumper off "quickly" with the sawsall. gota love em ! ! !

SuthnCustoms Ive used my Milwaukee Sawzall for the same thing 3 years ago removing tree stumps in my backyard..worked great with a long big toothed typed blade.
As far as dirt in the motor,just blow the housing out when done with an air compressor,mine's still cuttin away after 3 years of serious abuse in dirt..grease..etc.

onebadmerc It will be ok if you keep the dirt out of it, if it gets into the housing your sawzall will have a short life.

forestrytodd Why not just go to the local u-rent type place and rent a small stump grinder. Here in the south their cheep by the half day and does a fast clean job. Then you have mulch for the wife's flower beds. And brownie points to boot!

TorkMonster400 You can cut anything with one thats why I love'em ,I suggest using a bag or a condom with a slit in it over the blade guard I did this trick while working on a jeep in waist deep mud
