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.

Questions & Answers

can this be use to cut out the stop out of a 4 in. PVC Schedule 80 S x S Coupling?

Asked by wolfgang May 3, 2021
2
Answers

OD of 4" schedule 80 pipe is 4.5", so that's what you'd need to cut out the stop and turn a regular coupling into a slip coupling, might get by with 4 3/16" as the hole saw can wobble a bit when you don't have a pilot hole. If you're unsure, just measure the OD of your pipe, as that is what will have to fit thru the coupling.

Will the arbor/mandrel from a 3 1/4 inch Lennox hole saw fit the Milwaukee 3 1/2 inch hole saw?

It should. I used a Dewalt mandrel. I think mandrels may be interchangeable.

How does this product work in cement siding

Asked by proedge March 4, 2021
2
Answers

It is not designed for ceramic cutting (eg a diamond cutting surface). This saw also lacks carbide tipped saw blades that can be used for cement boards. (e.g. as used in a table saw). Still, I would expect it to cut a few holes in cement siding before the blades become dull. If you only need to cut a few holes this might be the lowest cost solution.

Will this hole saw cut through Stucco? It's about 3/4" thick.

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.

7/8 inch is good
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
