            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

                As good as it gets
                The Milwaukee M18 Fuel grinder is my go-to when working in my shop. It has the power and durability for grinding, cutting and use with a wire wheel. This is my second M18 Fuel Grinder and I use both when working on projects in my shop. They are solidly made and dependable.

                Love it!
                I’ve been removing loose paint using this grinder with a Avanti Pro quick strip disc.. This tool gets the job done quick. It’s a pro tool for sure. Extremely happy with my purchase!

                  money saver
                  redoing garage floors and looked to rent a stand up sander. I decided to buy this grinder instead of renting to save money and own tool. Grinder with diamond plated wheel did one heck of a job. Took old epoxy off with ease. Used a rigid vacuum attachment and exceeded my expectations. Thank God I had l Iots of batteries because it will go through them. When stripping paint off garage floor make sure you have the high output batteries for longer performance. Milwaukee 5.0 worked just fine when needed.

                    Stand out
                    The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18 Volt Brushless Cordless 4 1/2 - 5 in Angle Grinder with paddle switch was a great upgrade from my non-FUEL Milwaukee 4 1/2 - 5 in. Angle Grinder. I have been using the brushed version for the past year and a half but felt I needed more power and runtime. The FUEL version stepped up to the plate. Has been instrumental in stripping paint/rust/scale from a few metal restoration projects that I have been working on. The added power and extended run time using High Output 6amp batteries has saved me a great amount of time. The paddle switch is easy to use after a short learning curve if you haven't used one before. Definitely recommend.

                    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.
