The Milwaukee 2429-20 M12 Sub-Compact Band Saw is the most compact and lightest weight cordless band saw on the market. At less than half the weight and size compared to a traditional deep cut band saw, the M12 Band Saw provides one-handed power and portability to electricians, maintenance professionals, and other users cutting small diameter materials. The M12 Band Saw weighs only 6.75 lbs. and 12 in. in length, making it ideal for overhead or one-handed cutting applications. This powerful saw can cut through 3/4 in. EMT in only 3 seconds, and will get over 150 cuts per charge with the M12 REDLITHIUM XC High Capacity battery. With a 1-5/8 in. x 1-5/8 in. cut capacity and low vibration, the M12 Band Saw performs clean cuts on the most common small diameter metal cutting applications. The M12 Band Saw also features a dual-latching lower guard that covers the blade outside the active cutting area, addressing OSHA guarding requirements and making the tool suitable for one-handed use. The tool also includes a variable speed trigger, and LED light. Backed by Milwaukee’s 5-year warranty the 2429-20 M12 Band Saw Bare Tool comes equipped with (1) 18 TPI metal cutting blade. Battery and charger are sold separately with this model. The M12 Sub-Compact Cordless band saw should be used only with Milwaukee 48-39-0572 Sub-Compact Portable Band Saw Blades.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for electricians Makes short work of the most common sizes of conduit, makes far better cuts than a sawzall with less effort and a more compact package November 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Running conduit I leave my hacksaw in the truck and my time running it has improved. Worth every penny and my shoulders thank me to. July 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I'm glad someone finally made this! I use this product primarily for cutting 3/8" threaded rod, copper tubing and small iron pipe. It's good when vibrations would be harmful and a full-size portaband can't fit. It's great for threaded rod to make a quick hanger. I recently used it to remove hot water baseboard heat from a job and it made fast work of it. The 1 5/8" capacity allows me to cut tubular brass and 1 1/2" DWV drain lines quickly and easily. I'm happy with it overall. Being a battery powered saw, you don't have to baby it, but you aren't going to get the high torque you would from a regular band saw. It works well for its intended use. You get many, many cuts from the 12V battery. November 1, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool for an Electrician's collection If I would have known I couldn't find replacement blades easily, I wouldn't have bought it. To try and find the blades has been a nightmare. Most Home Depot's don't have them in stock. I can't even use mine anymore. September 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The saw has great power but can't find replacement blades in my local home depot or at hoome depot online I love this tool but what do I do when I wear out the blade that came with the tool. Not being able to find replacement blades at my local store or online at home depot's website has me a tad concerned. looks like I will have to order them from the manufacturer. I recommend this tool, if the blades were easier to obtain through home depot. June 5, 2012
