Product Overview

The Milwaukee Hole Dozer Hole Saw features Rip guard, the strongest tooth form in the industry, backed by the Rip guard limited lifetime tooth break warranty. Each tooth is built with more steel behind the cutting edge for added strength. The Rip Guard warranty on tooth breaks is a first for the hole saw industry. The added tooth strength along with 8% cobalt give added life to the teeth, allowing for increased productivity on the jobsite, as well as continued hole quality. The Hole Dozer includes Plug Jack, an all access slot design that allows for full access during plug removal. The Plug Jack gives access lower into the cup for thick material and higher towards the teeth for thin material. With multiple positions to apply leverage and better plug access, Plug Jack increases productivity and eliminates wasted downtime between holes. For fast, tool-free change-outs, use Milwaukee's universal Quick-Change Arbors. 49-56-7210, 49-56-7240, 49-56-7250 and 49-56-9100.

Garbage - Don't buy
I tried to drill 1 hole through stucco and all the teeth rounded off before I finished the hole.

    Great if a little expensive
    Really the only reason i gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is because it’s more money to buy the hole saw and bit separately than to buy the combo, but the size i needed was out of stock. Purchased to install soffit lighting and it worked great.

      Did not make a round hole
      Due to a bad weld on the seam the hole came out oblong as the saw was no longer a 3 1/4 circle. Which is causing a gap to appear around my sofit lights

        Quit after a single hole
        I bought this to instal can lighting. Cutting the first hole through my plaster ceiling, with no mesh to go through. Went to cut the second and it wouldn’t even scratch the surface to bite through. Use a keyhole saw to tray to coax it through, and that didn’t even work.

            Clicked on write a review for 7/8 inch. Don't know why it went to 6 inch. Anyways, the 7/8 inch drilled 16 holes in a stainless still hood control box (using wd40 as lube) before it burn to a frazzle which is pretty good. Would recommend

              I got the 2 inch Hole Saw.
              2 in. Hole Dozer Bi-Metal Hole Saw : I have the Ryobi Bi-Metal Door install set. Have had many years and have used the 2" 1/8 hole saw part of the kit to drill alot of holes in doors and other things when I need at least a 2 inch hole. Been working on drilling soffit holes for vents in old add on construction on my house. They cut off the eves and rafters and hung a fascia board and installed a flat roof full length of the rear of the house. covered up 50 feet of continue-es soffit venting. Drilled a few holes and got bearings on where they need to go exactly. Ryobi hole saw is just plain worn out, to much work. This Dozer blade is threaded for 5/8 arbor and fit the Ryobi arbor perfect.... It cuts holes very quickly and cleanly , and easy to pop out wood plug. It has many holes on the outside of the blade and I notice this blade does not drag in the hole while cutting. Coming from a wore out hole saw blade, the Dozer is night and day in cutting effort and speed... Thumbs up I did not have to purchase a proprietary arbor !!

                3 uses and then dull
                We used this 6 inch hole saw to cute 3 holes in a DRYWALL ceiling for can lights. After the 3rd cut the teeth were all flat and would not even scratch the surface of the 4th hole. Complete garbage and a waste of money. Will be returning to the store as now all I have is a $45 paper weight

                    This hole saw worked excellently - the only issue I had was with the arbor piece which was difficult to utilize and I had to go back to my Home Depot for assistance and even they had to look on YouTube to see how to set it up. Once it was done I was able to bang out the holes I needed for some drink holders - see pic. Also would say this definitely should work with a hand powered drill but was very efficient on my drill press as the arbor does have a 1/2" chuck.

                      Doesn't look anything like the picture. Cuts great holes, however there was a problem. I don't know if that problem occurred because I was drilling into something too thick or if my arbor/drill was the source of the issue. I have been using it to drill holes in a 1.5 inch thick pine board and it did catch and stall some. Not sure why that was happening but it did ruin the arbor I was using. I now have a 3 inch hole saw stuck on an arbor that had the indexing posts. The bit was installed right and the index posts were used to steady the bit. The threads are mangled and unusable for any other hole saw, I will continue to use it as is. The attached pic now shows the bit and arbor reunited for the next time I need it.

                      First off, Milwaukee needs to put some instructions on the packaging, see below (and pics) on how to use this hole saw. I bought the 4 1/8" hole saw to bore holes for dryer, bathroom & kitchen 4" exhaust vents. I thought the 4" would work, but the plastic vent shaft is actually a hair over 4" so a 4" hole saw is really too small. It's actually a tight fit even with the 4 1/8” hole saw. If you have a job that will require you to attach the venting hose as well as a hose clamp that you need to put on first, and then install it, like for a soffit, then you'll need a larger hole saw. I was able to do the 3 holes I needed with the 4 1/8", but I should mention that I had access to the soffit from the inside because the ceiling drywall in my new addition wasn't up yet. In the older part of my house I wanted to add a soffit vent to a bathroom, but ended up having to go 10' out to the side eve because the soffits where not accessible to tighten the hose clamp. When drilling vinyl siding you'll have to move the inner drill bit out to about 1" past the outer hole saw to keep the saw from wondering. At first I couldn't find the set screw as my older model had it closer to the end, then I realized that it's behind the tightening nut, so loosen that all the way first, then push the 2 pin collar towards the tip to access Allen screw. It takes an 1/8" (or 3mm in a pinch) Allen wrench. I found the large 1 1/8" nut really only needs to be tightened by hand as the pins really drive the saw & there is a rubber O ring between the two parts to keep enough friction on the collar. If you will be using this every day & not changing the size of the saw, then go ahead and wrench it down, but I'm constantly using different sizes and rather not have to carry a large 1 1/8" wrench or adjustable wrench around. So thank you Milwaukee for adding the rubber "O" ring. The hole saw did a great job of quickly digging right thru double thickness 3/4" 60 year old plywood which was VERY hard. The plug that was left in the saw was easy to remove with a flat head screwdriver as the access holes around the side of the saw are well placed. There are also two 5/16" holes at the back of the saw if you have a really stubborn plug & need to use a punch, dowel, bolt, head of a nail or small blade screwdriver to get it out.

                      Used this to drill 2 x 3-⅝ in holes into some heavy duty fiber board (not medium duty/mdf). Well over an inch deep. What I found was I could not run my drill forward with HDFB. It would easily catch and jump. But if I run it in reverse it would cut just as well, but not jump. The result was 2 cup-holders drilled into my home-made arcade machine.

                        This bit has already cut 24 holes in Box Rails (14Ga) and still cut the demo hole in less than 2 seconds. It threads onto the same arbor as my 1" saw. Note that I did drill pilot holes using another bit......I imagine that the pilot drill in the arbor would be quite dull by now.

                        As a contractor for many years, I have used holesaws in countless applications from plumbing to underground utilities to residential construction to metal fabrication. I am never disapointed with the milwaukee product and specifically look for them when purchasing a hole saw. I won't waste my money on no name products. I have used these saws to cut through 1/4" thick red iron, laminated metal and foam building panels, cement lined ductile iron water pipe, as well as the more common wood, plastic, fiberglass and rubber.
