18 Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Electric Compact Portable Band Saw with 3 Blades (Tool-Only) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love it but.... I would give this five stars all day long if the blades would be better. I am a 10 year electrician and 20 year carpenter so needless to say I know how to use a bandsaw. The blades are impossible to find and the ones that came with my saw were absolute junk. This is coming from a extremely devoted Bosch professional.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from blades never available We purchased some for our company. We had to buy an other brand because no one , including the company , has blades in stock.  Also those blades are less than the quality of other brands... We have useless tools in the shop...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good little band saw but needs a few improvements. I purchased this tool nearly a year ago and it works well, but it needs some modifications, first, the band saw blades themselves are the worst part! I break them often, and the cost of band saw blades can add up quickly! the blades simply need to be more durable, that said, I use this saw constantly! It has excellent battery life, with large amp hour batteries I can go 2-3 days easily on a single battery charge but that's probably also because it's a little slow, I'd like to see a few more rpm's for some faster cuts and lastly for the changes, why is this tool sold with an accessory handle? It really needs a hook hanger instead of the handle, I can't think of a scenario where 2 handed operation of this tool would be necessary. I would still very much recommend this saw, as stated earlier, I use this thing every day, and make a large number of cuts with it each day, but what am I cutting? I'm an electrician, I cut emt conduit, large copper and aluminum cable, steel studs (the carpenters love me!) as well as all thread, steel cables, bolts and anything else I can get my hands on, this saw eats through everything I give it! it's also tough, it's fallen off of several 12' ladders onto cement, it's gone out of a man lift and in all has really taken a beating with nothing more than some scrathes. I like the feel, ergonomics and balance of the tool and its small size makes it great for getting into tight spots but does not affect it's cutting ability or the size of material it can cut as it is on par with other cordless band saws. Aside from the three changes I mentioned, this tool is excellent and has done me very well, just like the rest of my Bosch tools!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from a big disappointment I use it for a week, but the problems do not end.Every day a broken blade and one blade is $ 10. Catastrophic!!!Very poor engineering solution. After a few cuts, cracks appear on the blade and then breaks.I am an electrician for over 15 years and until now I've used milwaukee band saw that somebody stole

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Hand I use this saw to cut all of my Unistrut and threaded rod for hangers. I work in hospitals and actualy cut the rod right in the hallway instead of going all the way back to my vice. Also take it into the ceiling to Easily cut stuff out of the way and cut off rods. One handed and Light weight. Love it!!!
