This thing is a beast. Lighter than the brushed m18 but very comfortable to use. They improved the cutting guide by adding a button that you push to move it up and down, so it doesn't get bumped and collapse. It cuts through 3/4" rigid and OCAL in about 7 seconds and doesn't bind if the cuts are straight and the blade doesn't get pinched. The cutting angle is great as well, very easy to make perfectly straight cuts. Going to see how well the variable speed trigger does on stainless steel later. The cutting depth and width are also a huge bonus. It can almost cut through 3" pvc (it's just a 1/4" too small). My biggest complaint is the trigger lock button, which has to be held rather than toggled, but its not even noticable after a week of use.

Milwaukee bandsaw comes in a box that states: "Driven to outperform", "fastest cutting", "largest capacity", "lightweight"; although I seldom take any confidence in statements on packaging of tools I acquire, I will confess, this Milwaukee tool has met everyone of those claims! I'll start out mentioning that I have a corded Milwaukee deep-cut bandsaw that has served me very well over the years, but it is a hunk of a tool to tote around not to mention cumbersome to work with on small cuts. I jumped right on the the M18 brushless version when I saw it and confess I have no regrets what-so-ever. In fact I haven't pulled out my corded Milwaukee since getting the cordless M18. Milwaukee dressed this tool up nicely including a pair of 3.0 Ah M18 batteries and a great gear bag to store everything in. Then they upped the package including the rapid charger that will charge the M12 as batteries too. The saw is very easy to handle - yes, one-handed! It is light but not fragile. The trigger control is super smooth and easy to control the brushless motor of the saw. Putting the saw to work, I do mostly rigid conduit cutting and some angle iron for bracing and there is a definite difference cutting the rigid conduit pipe using the M18 bandsaw against the corded tool. The M18 just seems to do the work so much easier than my corded saw, part of it because the M18 is lighter, but the control of the M18 is also better. Other brags on the Milwaukee is the blade brushes that sweep filings from the blade keeping the saw track clean. I also appreciate the built-in light and the ladder hook. The M18 comes with a 10 TPI blade which is perfect for my work. I tell everyone I work with that this is the saw to upgrade to.

The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Compact Bandsaw Kit with Two 3.0 Ah High Output Batteries is a real lifesaver. I didn't know such a saw existed until a co-worker pulled one out to cut a length of pipe. When I saw how quickly and cleanly it cut through that steel I knew I needed to add one to my arsenal. This is the latest improvement to the one I fell in love with. It is 2.6 pounds lighter than its predecessor which is significant when working from a ladder. The built-in hook for hanging is one of the simple upgrades that means a lot to the guy in the field. When I need to free my hands it's easier to find a place to hang it rather handing it down the guy on the ground. While compatible with all of the M18 batteries, it includes two of the high output compact batteries that give similar runtime to its older brother without the weight and mass. Again, something that means a lot to the guy working from a ladder and/or over his head. Last, but not least, the tool-free blade replacement is quick and simple to avoid the frustration of having to bust out your tools and waste 15 minutes on a job to replace a worn or busted blade.

This is my first bandsaw and am truly impressed. Usually I bust out the old angle grinder or reciprocating saw when it's time to cut metal, but this is a game changer. It is easy to use and relatively light for what it is. The cuts are WAY cleaner and much more accurate. Cuts through aluminum angle like butter. Rebar and unistrut are equally easy to cut. The stated cut capacity is 3-1/4, but I was not able to test this limit due to a lack of material. Included with the kit is one "extreme thick metal" blade with 8/10 TPI. An assortment of replacement blades are available and I will be purchasing some soon. The tool is very easy to control during cutting and it did not kick back once the cutting started. It is very important to note that you should NOT start cutting until the blade has reached full speed. This is noted in the manual. There's an adjustable shoe which is nice, but I found it somewhat difficult to manipulate it's button while wearing gloves - would be nice if the button had some more surface area to it. On the flip side, the trigger and safety are very easy to use while wearing gloves. And finally, the batteries. The 3.0Ah batteries are nice to have. Their reduced size and footprint help keep this tool's weight manageable. Larger batteries fit nicely, at the expense of some added weight.

My husband and I do a lot of vegetable gardening. We like to make our own trellises out of PVC pipe so we can customize them for our needs. We got this bandsaw in order to cut the pipe easily and using a battery operated saw. The saw is comfortable to hold and it worked exceptionally well for our needs. The saw can be used for other pipe materials but currently, this is our primary use. I will include a picture of the saw, our use of it and the final product, a trellis in our garden. We use stakes in the ground and place the pipe over it. We connect the pipe using standard PVC elbow connectors. We then use nylon netting cut to size and held in place with nylon cinch ties. This is the first year that cutting the pipes as been one of the easier chores involved in creating the trellis because of the ease of use of the saw.

Milwaukee's reputation for superior quality craftsmanship carries over to their M18 Fuel 18-volt Brushless Compact Bandsaw Kit. With it's Lifetime Warranty, this bandsaw kit provides the user with everything needed to tackle any cutting task around your home or worksite. The cutting capacity is 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" which will provide you the cutting surface for most jobs. Blade replacement's for this saw run about $5.00 in packs of three, so several replacements can be handy without breaking the bank. Having both a variable speed trigger, and LED work light helps with safely cutting materials. The M18 batteries are part of Milwaukee's M18 family...Meaning, if you have other Milwaukee M18 tools, the batteries are all interchangeable! Using this saw to cut some piping for an outdoor project, the saw is very lightweight, extremely soft running, with no jerking or out of control running. The sound is very low, and letting go of the trigger, stops the blade in around 1-second. While running...Of course, depending on what you're cutting, this saw does not bog down one bit. Cutting remains constant. The storage / carry bag that this kit has is super nice, well constructed, and very thick. Overall, this kit is an outstanding purchase for the price, Milwaukee quality, and Lifetime Warranty. Extremely pleased, and Highly Recommended.

I am in the middle of restoring an old car to go racing in the 24 hours of Lemons. I haven't done any roll cage welding i a while so I thought I should practice. I puled out this band saw and proceeded to slice up a length of tubing like like it was made of paper. The cuts were clean, the pipe didn't heat up like with my chop saw, and the cut surface needed very little clean up afterward. Now I can't wait to get started on the new cage.

Got this , charged the batteries and cut some steel pipe plastic pipe. Made about two dozen cuts and still had life on the battery. Used a bigger battery and could feel the difference in weight. I would recommend the smaller battery if you are cutting overhead or for a long time. I like the LED light to see the cut line on dark metal. Only thing I need to get is extra blades. I did not use the charger since I already have one.
