M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Sub-Compact Band Saw XC Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great tool for your arsenal I got this saw on a Saturday and used it on the job the following Monday. I needed to remove some copper tubing from a heating system in a tight, miserable, wet crawlspace. The copper was mostly hanging loose, so a reciprocating saw would have vibrated it too much to efficiently cut it. An imp cutter would have taken too long. I also had limited egress, so it was important that the pieces be cut into manageable lengths so they could be removed from the space. The Milwaukee 2429 Cordless M12 band saw was just the tool to do the job. Unlike their M12 tubing cutter, which requires a straight piece of copper tubing without a fitting or globs of solder, as long as whatever you want to cut is 1 5/8" OD or less, this saw will work. It made short work of this task and saved me from having to fight to get the copper out. So far I am pleased with it. I can see that some reviewers may say the tool is underpowered. It is what it is. I won't say you have to baby it, but obviously as a 12-volt battery powered tool, you aren't going to get the same amount of cutting force as you would with a corded band saw. I haven't tried this on threaded rod yet, but I'm sure it's faster than a hacksaw, and won't destroy the threads like a reciprocating saw. The fact that it is cordless makes it the ideal tool for any tradesman where the need for mobility would make running a cord impractical and frustrating. This is the greatest tool to come along since the cordless reciprocating saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mini portable band saw Exceptional tool. Quick and powerful. The wife used it for trimming branches on a tree. Up to 1.5 inch branches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool for our projects Works like a large bandsaw. It cuts strut and 1 1/4" pipe with no problem. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just buy this thing This saw is one of the better purchases I have made this year. It is so light and controllable that it is the first thing I reach for when cutting conduit. You can hold the conduit in one hand and cut it with the other. easier and quicker than a sawsall. The whole M12 line is just a great small cordless line. I only which it could cut up to 2 inch pipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baby band saw that rocks! This is a 12V sub compact band saw. Its opening is 1 5/8" by 1 5/8". It will cut shallow unistrut without a problem, it cuts deep unistrut too, just start your cut on the slotted side and cut to the open side. Cutting deep unistrut is still an easy task with this little guy. Cutting overhead or carrying is easy as it weighs only a few pounds. I have also cut all thread with this and have not had issues with burring up the threads, definitely beats cutting with a grinder! With the 4.0 battery I have made over 40 cuts of 1/2" all thread on one battery and it still had juice left!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good light tool for tight spaces. Light duty though. Kit box is nice too. One XC. High Performance batter comes with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and One handed use another great m12 tool. the battery it comes with is the big extended life m12. i just used it all day cutting light aluminum and never changed the battery. very easy to use one handed. only drawback is the light casts a shadow on my line making it hard to see. worth the price and well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an innovation Bought this and the fuel bruahless bandsaw they both have there benefits. This little band saw is perfect for 1/2- one inch rigid. Look you can cut 1-1/2 emt but that's the max. I use this every single day I recommend getting a 4.0 amp battery anything smaller in battery size is pointless. I cut 3/4 in a breeze. It's so light and fits in tight spaces it's just so worth the money it's a no brainier

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only good for conduit.... If you are a sprinkler fitter or plumber who will use this to cut 3/8 or 1/2 threaded rod then stay is under powered and cuts rod slow. I bought this tool and can say it is best for electrical workers.
Date published: 2012-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for electricians! This is a must have for electricians or any of the trades that cut conduit, strut, or threaded rod. Cuts conduits cleanly so not much reaming to do. Compact and easy to use overhead in ceilings or on lifts. Stop cutting pipe with tubing cutters and reciprocators!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The portable bandsaw was an excellent purchase. I thought it might not be strong enough and last at 12 volts. Cut right through back to back strut. Then onto the threaded rod great saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everybody wants one So we are doing a roof mount solar project. Running a lot of 1" conduit. Safety want us to use 2 hands on sawsall and bandsaw. But with this mini saw it is only 1 hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good saw for your hard earned dollar Two batteries a case a charger .Good value.I find the saw lightwieght after working all day.
