BUY THIS TOOL
I work in High-Voltage construction as a welder and this was purchased as a well lets see if it will work tool... And YES it does cutting everything that you would cut with a corded portaband never had any problems at all.. could use more batteries because you will not pull out a cord to cut anything that you can cut with a portaband...
Have to buy 2 more my fellow employees are using this one nonstop too.

my band saw works very well for my needs
I use my band saw to cut all tread rod, angle iron, pipe, strut, and S&D. I like the light, also like the way the saw will set on large upper handle and guard.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

  • In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product.
