Product Overview

Simply put, the M18 FUEL Band Saw is the most powerful 18-Volt cordless band saw on the market, the first to truly deliver corded performance with cordless productivity. Utilizing a POWERSTATE Brushless motor and Constant Power Technology, the M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw cuts faster than corded. It also delivers the same legendary durability of a Milwaukee corded band saw by utilizing over 90% of the same parts, including an all metal direct drive. Equipped with Jobsite Armor Technology, the tool is also better protected from drops and debris. REDLITHIUM XC4.0 Battery Technology provides up to 2X more run-time through superior pack construction, electronics, and more work per charge over the life of the battery than any competitive lithium-ion battery on the market. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence has the most advanced system of cordless power tool electronics, providing optimized performance, electronic clutch, and overload protection using total system communication between tool, battery and charger. The M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw features a tool-free locking adjustable shoe that can adjust from an extended shoe to no shoe in seconds. Other innovative features include a hang hook for easy storage in-between cuts, LED light to illuminate the cutting area, superior cut visibility, and a balanced body design that allows the tool to rest naturally and comfortably in the user’s hands.

Answer: 
This SKU does not come with a case, it is just the saw. It comes in a standard cardboard box. HD does sell the kits that come with a nice hard case.

Answer: 
No. This is a "tool-only" offer meaning that it does not come with a case, batteries, or a charger. However, a case can be purchased for this unit through us by calling 1-800-SAWDUST.

Answer: 
What is meant by "tool only" is that it does not include the battery, case, or any other accessories. The blade is included, because it is considered part of the tool (i.e. a saw without a blade is not technically a saw).

Answer: 
This unit does include 1 blade. It does not include a battery or a charger which is why it is referred to as a "bare tool" in the description.

Answer: 
I have never had the blade come off, and I use this a lot. I cut lots of steel tube, 1/8 to 1/4 inch mild steel plate, and misc pieces like 4 inch square tube. I even kinked a blade (my fault) and that one didn't come off.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OUTSTANDING There is nothing complicated about this tool. It is great to not have to tow an extension cord around anymore. I will say, I think the M12 subcompact band saw would have been more practical, its less than half the weight and half the cost. Working in a brewery, 90% of what I cut is 1" and under, so if you don't cut a lot of large material just consider the M12 as an excellent alternative. July 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool Really nice tool. Worth every penny. Best band saw I ever worked with May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful and versatile tool. I bought this tool to cut rebar, and it's served me well ever since. It is an EXTREMELY powerful and versatile cutting tool. I've cut everything from lumber to PVC to rebar to 1" solid steel roundstock with it. It seems to be pretty easy on the battery too. Just be warned that this is a HEAVY tool; don't expect to do much one-handed cutting with this. April 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Another great buy I use my cordless saw all the time and on some very tough material . My saw always does a great job and the batteries hold up very well. This saw does not have an easy life with my use. Like all the other Millwaukee tools I own I stand proud by them. Top of the LINE! February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best portable tool More power than my older corded porta band. and much lighter. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by what just happened!?! I cut tons of conduit and you simply will not believe how fast it cuts. You literally pull the trigger and the end of the pipe falls off and you're left wondering what the h#!! Just happened. First cut i made with it i lost my mind laughing because I've never seen anything cut as fast as this thing does. You will not be disappointed. November 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Premature Breakage The cutter worked great for about 6 months but after that the drive system wheel kept slipping. It has a strange drive slip design that after wears out it slips . It was rendered useless and couldn't return cuz lost the receipt. over 500 dollars and just wasn't worth it. The electric ones seem to work better and last longer on the job July 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sweet Should have got this a long time ago. I do lots of metal fabrication, and this just makes everything 10 times easier. Cuts through mild steel like butter. I had to make a deep V cut in several 3x3 solid CR steel blocks, and this just sliced through it like nothing. Cuts through 2 inch DOM like it was plastic. Noise level is super low, not much louder than a hacksaw + cordless drill. Does not bog down at all, even at slow speeds. The speed control is really good, there's a rotating dial to select max speed, and it has a variable speed trigger, so there's a lot of range. The work light is well placed and helpful. The lockout safety switch is a but small and has a short throw, but it is definitely welcome - helps keep accidents from happening. This is a fairly heavy saw, so if you don't need to cut 5x5, you might want to think about the smaller one. It is definitely a "two hand" saw. Despite the weight, it is balanced well. The blade sits perfectly vertical when holding it with both hands. Battery life is good, I can saw through dozens of pieces before swapping. Blade guides are ball bearings (six of them); they are tight and have zero play, and align the blade perfectly. My only minor issue is that the included blade has a thick spot at the weld, so when sawing metal, there's a noticeable drag when that part of the blade passes through the cut. Other than that, an awesome saw. I have not had this long enough to comment on long term durability, however I do own a dozen other Milwaukee tools, some I've had for years, and they have all held up. I'm expecting this saw to hold up too. July 15, 2015
