About This Product

The Milwaukee M12 FUEL Compact Band Saw utilizes a POWERSTATE Brushless Motor and Constant Power Technology, making it the fastest cutting compact band saw in Unistrut with a cut capacity of 2-1/2" X 2-1/2". The M12 FUEL Compact Band Saw offers a compact design and weighs only six pounds, making it the lightest compact band saw on the market. The M12 FUEL Compact Band Saw offers integrated blade covers, making it suitable for one-handed use while offering a larger capacity than the existing M12 Sub-Compact Band Saw. The improved performance, lightweight design, one-handed capability, and increased capacity enhance user productivity while lowering their fatigue. The compact, portable band saw is equipped with Jobsite Armor Technology, a proprietary composite material to better protect it from drops and debris and crush zone barriers that absorb impacts. A variable speed trigger and an LED work light provide maximum control. An integrated rafter hook allows for easy storage in-between cuts. The M12 FUEL Compact Band Saw is also compatible with the band saw reamer attachment (49-90-2029, sold separately), which easily attaches to the back of the tool, providing users the ability to cut and ream with the same tool. One 12/14 TPI Extreme Metal Blade is included.

Highlights

  • Jobsite Armor technology: proprietary composite material and crush zone barriers provide long lasting rugged protection

              Great investment
              My favorite bandsaw! The finest, lightest, and easiest bandsaw to use when cutting 2” conduit. An amateur as well as a professional, can easily cut a straight line with it. I work in the solar industry and it is immensely practical for 90% of the jobs I do. An amateur as well as a professional, can easily cut a straight line with it. Pros: Easy to use Lightweight Small Cuts 2” conduit cleanly Cons: Cuts slower with smaller battery

              BEST IN THE BUSINESS
              This is a great example why Milwaukee is the leading tool company. This was designed with thought and consideration for electricians and plumbers. I used it to cut perfect strut EMT up to 2”. It does the job. I love that it’s 12V and light weight. The 12V line up is all I run with now, it helps when I move from job to job.

              Works great, ive used everyday for 2 weeks now love...
              Works great, ive used everyday for 2 weeks now love it. A must have for somone in comercial electrical trade such as myself who is constantly cutting emt and all thread. Mch lighter weight than the fully size saws so i can 1 hand it and cut overhead if needed. Just remember to buy extra blades! This uses weird 30 9/16 blades your probably only gonna get a odd size like that from milwaukee

              Best band saw I've used yet!
              It's lightweight and packs a mean clean cut. I use a 6ah M12 battery with it and I've had no problem cutting through strut,EMT,or rigid. It also has a heavy duty hook that folds in and out for easy access and storage!

              M12 compact bandsaw
              Is a great little tool with a big bite I have both the sub-compact and the m18 compact. This tool is a great size. Blade cover makes it a safer one handed option. Battery life seem to be above average. The hook is very user friendly. Once I learned to keep blade off material when starting I love this thing.

              A must have
              So far it’s been good, I like the new design and cutting capabilities, also the hanging clip is handy. The biggest downfall is I really wish the adjustable shoe was more like the 18 volt because on this model you need a torx bit to adjust and it isn’t included, I just really wish they would have a spot on the tool so I don’t have to dig one out every time you adjust it. Otherwise I would recommend it.
