        Bigger and a little harder to use 1 handed than I expected but cuts smooth. Would be nicer if it had a faster speed like my smaller one does. And a trigger st the 2nd handle would be great. Otherwise it's great

        Cuts through hard, thick metal perfectly with ease
        I work in the heavy civil construction industry and this 5" deep cut band saw has saved me so much energy and time, that it has already paid for itself! Everything about this bandsaw is of high quality and very durable. It has a good weight to it to allow it to cut any metal with no effort at all by the user, yet it's not too heavy as it remains portable enough to be taken anywhere. The blades are very simple and quick to change. The adjustable guide makes it easy to get clean and straight cuts.

          Warranty dont mean nothing
          Under 2 years old Bandsaw slipped of handle of my packout and hit the ground just right and cracked the frame of the pulley support system. Not covered by warranty at all. Called milwaukee to get part number to order replacement. Was giving plastic cover part number on the part that broke. Would not entertain the fact that could have need a bad mold and even cracked through the screw hole at a week point of the part

            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.
