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

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?

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

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.

I wanna cut more stuff!
This is an amazing machine. It comes in a big protective case with its blade, battery and charger. Installing the blade was simple enough and needs no tools, a simple cam lever is used to release the tension and return the tension again afterwards. The material guide around the blade is also adjusted without any need for a tool. The machine handles well. The trigger provides some variation in speed and there is an overall speed range setting. The fantastic part is the way this thing cuts. It goes through metal like a knife through butter! Essentially you have a continuously moving hacksaw blade that sails through whatever you apply it to. You can cut anything up to 5” in size and depth. The LED light shines down nicely to where the cutting action is. There is a nice big solid hook that folds out which allows the machine to be hung on a ladder rung or 2x lumber. The battery charger handles both the 18V and 12V Fuel batteries.

Not sure if it was just a fluke, but the saw motor burned up after 10 days.
