The Milwaukee 2429-21XC 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. 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 deliver over 150 cuts per charge with the included 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 2429-21XC comes equipped with (1) M12 REDLITHIUM XC High Capacity battery, 30-minute charger, (1) 18 TPI metal cutting blade, and a hard carrying case. The M12 Sub-Compact Cordless band saw should be used only with Milwaukee 48-39-0572 Sub-Compact Portable Band Saw Blades.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electrician Approved! Used this little guy to run 1500 feet of 1/2" and 3/4" EMT on a major remodel. Blasted through 1" EMT on a commercial job and 1-1/4" Rigid Pipe and Unistrut without any problems. The saw is so light and easy to use you can easily cut over your head or in a wall cavity without having to bring the work piece back down to the ground. Still on the first blade. Bought an extra 2.0 battery, but never needed to swap out during the day. The supplied extended battery has plenty of juice to make the full day. The light is perfectly located for finding your cut marks on materials. My shoulders and elbows are so happy I bought this saw, there is literally zero vibration transmitted back to you as you cut. I had recently moved to using my sawsall to cut EMT, but the vibration was horrible and it was only a matter of time till I would have injured myself. I have to say that Milwaukee has really stepped up their game recently, the M12 system is light, powerful and innovative. Great tool, would recommend to any one that frequently cuts light gauge metals. January 28, 2015
