The Milwaukee 0729-21 Cordless V28 Portable Band Saw uses a high powered Milwaukee built motor to deliver optimal cutting speed and performance. Powering the 0729 is the revolutionary 28 Volt Lithium-Ion battery pack exclusively from Milwaukee. The Milwaukee 0729-21 28 Volt battery pack weighs less than an 18 Volt pack yet delivers two times the run-time, expanding the list of tools that can be driven on this platform. The battery is positioned so that the balance and line of sight to the cut are not compromised. This band saw has the deep cut capacity of 4-3/4 in. x 4-3/4 in. which makes this tool extremely versatile and productive. The variable speed trigger delivers optimal cutting speeds of 0-225/0-350 surface feet per minute. The LED light aids in making cuts in dark places. A comfortable non-slip soft grip handle provides a better gripping surface and reduces operator fatigue.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not a replacement for a corded band saw This is a lot of money to spend and it may not be for everyone. .... Bottom line: I don't recommend this unit unless you have no choice but to use a cordless deep cut. February 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good quality It is a plus that the saw is battery operated and that the speed is greater than the cord saw. Purchasing an additional battery is recommended. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well-built, Professional Quality Machine Milwaukee went all out when they built this tool. The 18V Band Saw is a heck of a machine and could do most anything I asked of it, but its a kid's toy compared to this machine. I cut off a pressure treated 4"x4" post the other day and the saw went through it without pulling down at all. this saw has all sorts of power, is light for its capabilities, and can make a lot of cuts between charging(s). The portability of this tool makes it so much more user-friendly than my standing band saw. I also like the ability to cut thick metals with a switch of the blade. Speaking of which, the blade changes in no time. The blade is easy to switch, is quick, and the blades come in many different configurations. The metal blades, the wood blades, and then the blades used for just about everything. As long as the blades have lasted so far, I don't see myself buying too many blades. If you are comparing the different cordless band saws and are going to be using the tool regularly, I highly recommend purchasing this unit. The Dewalt, Makita, Bosch, and the smaller version of the Milwaukee are all quality tools, but this saw far and away their superior. Believe it or not, the 28-volt battery actually weight less than the 18-volt battery from Milwaukee. I may have an older 18-volt battery, but it weighs almost half again as much as the 28-volt. The tool itself is much beefier than the 18-volt version made by Milwaukee and is definitely professional grade. ?I would put this tool up against any of my Hilti(s) when it comes to build quality. After using the 28-volt tools for about 3 months, I can see that the future of cordless drills is going to me larger voltage tools; 28-volt or larger. The torque you get is as good, if not better than a tool that is plugged into the wall. Milwaukee says that it takes a full hour for a dead batter to attain a full charge; this is very conservative. I had a completely dead battery and it was fully charged in just over 40 minutes. I've only ran the battery completely dead once, or I'd have the charging time down to a window of just a few minutes. I like the fact that Milwaukee stays on the conservative side with their claims so you are pleasantly surprised instead of stretching the truth and being disappointed in the product. I can't wait until Milwaukee completes their cordless tool line in the 28-volt or 36-volt categories. As my 18-volt tools begin to wear out, I plan on replacing them with their larger-voltage siblings from Milwaukee. Keep up the good work Milwaukee, and I'll keep buying your products!
