Does this saw cut 2 and 7/8 inch oilfield pipe pretty good?

Asked by jd8400 March 15, 2021

Answers

This saw will cut stainless steel food grade strut. The problem is depending on the material you’ll have to change blades more often. Secondly, the diameter of the pipe 4” is pushing it.

just bought this saw and the battery wont last but at least 3 cuts the saw has no power on a 5.0 battery what can b issue

Asked by jess February 3, 2021

Answers

I would either return it or contact Milwaukee. Mine works great and I would be lost without it. I can make 4 cuts through railroad track with mine on one 5.0 battery. Great saw!

Is the included blade garbage, or am I incompetent?

Asked by xiralli November 7, 2020

Answers

If you’re sure you have the blade installed correctly, try tilting the saw to the right so the blade is true vertical. I have to hold mine that way to compensate for the offset built in.

Can it use a 35 3/8 blade as well as a 44 7/8 blade?

Asked by Bill November 6, 2020

No, it takes the 44 7/8 one

I just bought this saw and when I unboxed it, I noticed the blade pulleys are not aluminum any lo...

Answer

Just bought and received mine, same as yours. Too bad that we weren't given that information before purchase huh? I'm sure they're fine, I just feel that the saw is a bit less durable now because plastic is going to get damaged a lot quicker than metal. Out of curiosity, searching the internet on this has ended up with no additional information. Milwaukee should have at least included so technical information with the saw on why there is a deviation with materials used as none of the websites even show plastic wheels are used now. Also notice no one responded to your question from July 4th 2020 which is sad.

Does anyone know if you need a hot work permit to use this on a job site? Not sure since it doesnt create sparks

Asked by NYCplumber June 25, 2020

Answer

No, you should not need one.

is there a dead man switch

Asked by jon June 24, 2020

Answer

The saw has a brake on it. As soon as you let go of the trigger, the blade immediately stops. All Milwaukee tools do not have a locking trigger to keep the tool running, you have to keep pressure on the trigger and one released, the tool brakes.

This is my new favorite tool.
I love the tool. As an electrician, sometimes at the work site it is neccessary to turn the power off. It is better for me to have battery tools instead of using a generator. This tool serves all my cutting needs without a problem. I have extra batteries, so a dead battery is not an issue.
by rosco01
Great compact M18 Band Saw
Use this product for electrical and gas lines. Very easy to use and with a 6amp battery has great power and longevity through the jobs. Would highly recommend adding to your tool kit.
by Riepenhoff02
Got to be one of my favorite tools
Then you said my bandsaw is daily and it takes a beating. If I had to I'll buy this saw again and again. I'm proud to be a part of the Milwaukee team. And I'm honored to add this tool to my Arsenal
by Batman886
Highly recommend this tool
This band saw has saved me time and money. Providing nice straight cuts on cast iron over snap cutters. Cuts through any plastic pipe with ease allowing me to do my job more efficiently.
by Islandguy
Cuts like a hot knife on butter!
First year sparky. Using my bandsaw to cut PVC,EMT and RMC on site. Belt is easy to remove and install.Cuts smooth with controllable speeds. Abit on the heavy side,that's why I'll be buying the portable table soon

This is my favorite Milwaukee tool
I’m a welder/fabricator and give mine heavy use nearly everyday. It’ll slice through solid stock all day and doesn’t suck batteries down either. would recommend and buy again.

BEAST OF A BANDSAW
This thing is big and the hardcase that you can get with it is the size of a suitcase. It cuts theough anything you throw at it and is very easy to make straight cuts. Multiple blade options in stock for a variety of metals and thickness needs.
by duuuuuuce
Awesome cutting power and lasts hours
Use this to cut up scrap pipe that has been removed from chemical service. This cuts just as good as the corded Milwaukee we have but with more freedom.
