A must have.
Ive wanted a cordless bandsaw for a long time now but always thought the 18volt ones were to large for 1 hand use. This bandsaw is perfect. Im a electrician and i can make cuts all day long on 3/4 emt on a single charge. Im currently on day 4 on a single charge with casual use. Ive only had this bandsaw for about a week now and all three guys on my crew are ordering 1. I love the m12 lineup and this is definitely there best tool yet. That is until they cone out with a m12 rotary hammer drill.

Awesome tool
Built deep strut racks for weeks cutting strut & 3/8 size rod for 5000' of 4" EMT I installed. Works great on anything that fits in the opening & even if it doesn't. Example: I have used it to cut 2" EMT going all the way around the pipe. This thing is awesome. Professional grade. M12 series is better than most 18 volt tools on the market in my opinion. Lighter & more
reliable. Even more powerful than some. Helper bought a 12volt Bosch impact &
broke it in 30 minutes doing the work we
do. My m12 has been going strong for
about a year now. As for my helper John he
returned the Bosch and now has the new
m12 fuel impact which is better than mine
now. Yes I'm jealous & will be getting one soon. Another story with my m18 drill I finished drilling a 4" hole with a hole saw that a makita 18v. over heated doing. Thought he burned it up but thermo sensor saved it after it cooled for an hour. After I finished his first one he couldn't do I drilled 3 more after that one. My helper John is a believer now. Don't waste your money on other cordless tools if you want professional grade. Milwaukee #1

Great little saw
This is a very handy small bandsaw when it comes to cutting small objects. The fact that it can be held with one hand is all the better. This just makes trimming things like bolts too easy!

Electricians dream
I am a commercial electrician and this is my new favorite tool. It cuts conduit and strut awesome. It makes quick, clean, and safe cuts. great run time on one charge, all day(w/XC 3.0). Light weight, and easy to use, blade has lasted 5 working days so far with medium useage still cuttin good. Love all M12 tools and as of now I could not live with out my new band saw, threw hack saw away.

Greatest tool EVER!
I've been an Electrician for 36 years, and this is by far the greatest time saving tool in my arsenal! Whether it's cutting conduit or unistrut, this tool will cut through evenly every time in a third of the time it normally takes!

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.
