Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome tool! I use this tool about 3 hours every day. I cut bronze, aluminum, iron, steel... This tool just won't quit. I'd like for the blades to last longer but other than that they kick butt dude.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. It's light weight & easy to use. I have used full sized portable Bandsaws and this one works just as well at half the weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice power tool it's a very usefull tool I ever have in my hands

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutting Fool This is awesome battery powered bandsaw!! It has as much power as my corded compact Milwaukee bandsaw but has portability. Along with the bigger jaw than the 12 volt cousin it can cut 90% of the required work without getting out the large deepcut corded bandsaw. The abilty to hold and balance the saw with one handed operation is safer so you can use the other hand to hold the work piece. It has pretty good battery life for its size. Ideal for working on a lift or a ladder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable bandsaw fills the need for the maiority. Milwaukee", the leader in power tools has done it again. Here is a saw that will fill the bill for the majority of the contractors who just neeed a saw for special instances that is more than there reciprocating saw can handle (Not to mention the cost of reciprocating saw blades these days). It will last any home owner, if properly PM'd and given proper care, for a lifetime. Many people judge tools on how much misuse they can handle not how a tool holds up when used to it's proper capacities and feed speeds. No, I just have to say that it is great that a very reasonably priced tool is available to the homeowner, when it certainly wouldn't be economically viable for a home owner to spend $600 to $1000.00 for a huge Industrial Portable Band Saw, this is the answer-period.
