Product Overview

The Milwaukee 4-1/2 in. Hole Dozer Hole Saw features Rip Guard teeth that were built with more steel behind the cutting edge for added strength. They give you enhanced productivity on the job site as well as better hole quality. They're also backed by a limited lifetime tooth break warranty. The Hole Dozer comes with a Plug Jack, an all-access slot design that allows for full access during plug removal. The Plug Jack enables access lower into the cup for thick material and higher toward the teeth for thin material. With multiple positions to apply leverage and better plug access, the Plug Jack eliminates wasted downtime between holes. Pair this hole saw kit with universal quick-change arbors for fast, tool-free change-outs (model numbers 49-56-7210, 49-56-7240, 49-56-7250 and 49-56-9100 - sold separately).

The hole saw did what it was designed for I bored 10 holes in 3\4 thick cast iron plates with only one hole saw I completed the job under the estimated time which equals profit They are good for those who know feeds and speed run them a slow rpm and they will last many jobs down the road

I purchased this exact size from Harbor freight in a 3 pack with variable sizes which is $10 less than this bit by itself. The generic bit made 5 recessed lighting holes with ease through lathe and plaster. I assumed if I spent a little more money it would get one that lasted longer and cut faster. I was completely wrong! This bit went dull after cutting two holes and I even pre-drilled the holes with the dull cheap bit to avoid the lathe from eating the teeth. I am sure this is good for cutting balsa wood at best.

I used this with a quick change center drill bit arbor from Milwaukee and this was an excellent hole saw through my roof for a new attic fan vent. Makita 18V LXT 1/2 drill in higher torque mode was sufficient to cut through without flaw or trouble, maintaining light pressure and letting the saw do the work. A heavier duty drill would have provided even more torque, and with a handle mounted I think this saw would have drilled through quite rapidly. Excellent quality, excellent performance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for metal! I recently got this hole saw to cut two holes through some stainless steel sheet metal. And I must say that I am VERY disappointed in its performance. These bimetal hole saws are sold as being capable of cutting through metal (including stainless steel), but it looks like they are fundamentally a woodworking tool that just cuts metal as an afterthought. I specifically tried cutting the steel at as close to the recommended 80RPM as my drill would allow and used plenty of cutting fluid. But it was slow going all the way. And the tool ended up becoming uselessly dull in the end. And at $13 a pop, that's pretty expensive for a tool that is not going to last. Granted, if you are into woodworking rather than metalworking, this hole saw will probably serve you well. It might even be OKAY if you use it to cut aluminum. But it is clearly not meant for cutting steel (and should not be sold as such).

I have only used this hole saw to drill through maybe 5 2x4 plates and it seems to be doing ok. Not so for the 4" size I bought a several months ago; it was dull after cutting through a single pine rim joist. Not what I would expect from Milwaukee! I'm not a fan of yellow tools, but the dewalt hole saw I replaced it with was deeper and is holding up well.

I used this hole saw to cut a hole in a communications steel panel and thru a house sill. The saw cut right thru the steel panel without any trouble. The hole saw is deep enough to cut thru a 2 by 4 and released the cut 2 by 4 with a little push with screwdriver. I have only used it 3 times but I believe this is one of the better hole saws I have used.
