The Milwaukee 2429-21XC M12 Sub-Compact Band Saw is the most compact and lightest weight cordless band saw on the market. At less than half the weight and size compared to a traditional deep cut band saw, the M12 Band Saw provides one-handed power and portability to electricians, maintenance professionals, and other users cutting small diameter materials. The M12 Band Saw weighs only 6.75 lbs and 12" in length, making it ideal for overhead or one-handed cutting applications. This powerful saw can cut through 3/4" EMT in only 3 seconds, and will deliver over 150 cuts per charge with the included M12 REDLITHIUM XC High Capacity battery. With a 1-5/8" x 1-5/8" cut capacity and low vibration, the M12 Band Saw performs clean cuts on the most common small diameter metal cutting applications. The M12 Band Saw also features a dual-latching lower guard that covers the blade outside the active cutting area, addressing OSHA guarding requirements and making the tool suitable for one-handed use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST TOOL I HAVE EVER OWNED!! I am an electrician in the residential field and when I am installing conduit I am constantly making cuts... I started out with the usual hacksaw and my shoulder was always sore so I started using the Klein EMT pipe cutter. The shoulder stopped hurting but then my wrist and hands were sore so when I seen a demo of this bad boy I HAD TO HAVE IT!! I mounted a double hook on my ladder for stability and convienence and the blade opening fits perfect around the back ladder leg. If your in any trade that your using a hacksaw or pipe cutter and tired of the cutting aspect of work I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BAND SAW it rips right through 1/2 onduit and have been using the same blade for about two months now and could not be happier with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tool for an unusual application in a salt mine I was tasked with cutting the excess length of the "tails" of roof bolts (dywidags) in a salt mine to increase clearance to equipment. The bolts are 1" diameter and are a harder steel than rebar. I had to crawl into a tight, restricted space in order to reach the bolts that I needed to trim. I needed a very compact saw, and a quick search of the Milwaukee tools that are available revealed this little gem. I only needed to apply light pressure, use a little lubricant on the blade, and so far, I've cut 10 bolt tails, with 2 left to go, on a single blade and on a single charge. I needed to make a makeshift extension to reach one of the bolts, extending the tool out by 3 feet. It's light weight made it easy to handle, and again, it made very quick work of cutting the bolt tail. This tool made this difficult task much easier than I would have imagined. 5 stars plus in my opinion! I need to get one of these for my home workshop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for residential electricians... I am a professional residential electrician of 20 years and a huge part of my job is cutting 1/2" EMT conduit much of the time. To say the least, this bandsaw has made my life a whole lot easier. Initially I was skeptical about the versatility, power, run-time and general quickness of the cuts, but a skeptic I am no longer. First off, the 12v XC battery is awesome. I can go all day long on a single charge. It takes about 3-4 seconds to cut through 1/2" emt conduit. Plenty fast. Best of all I can kiss that shoulder and elbow pain I get from my regular hand-hacksaw goodbye. Yes you can cut a bit faster with a band new blade on a regular hacksaw. But, after about a day, the blade dulls, slowing down the time it takes you to cut and is harder to cut in general. Plus throughout the day you simply aren't cutting as fast by hand due to the fatigue from doing it manually. If I absolutely had to complain about one thing about this saw it would be that it's just a tad bit heavy at being a smudge under 7 lbs. The only thing I can't comment on is blade life since I've only used it about a month now. Overall I think this product is a perfect for professional electricians. Thank you Milwaukee Tools!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I won't be buying another. I am an industrial electrician and this tool is great for small stuff like 1/2in-1in emts or cutting 4/0 wire. But anything more than that and it sucks. Cant cut deep strut. I've burned up the motor in not one but 3 of them in a row. Definitely won't be getting another and I love all my other Milwaukee tools. Either you guys need to release a fuel version or one with a better motor on it. I'll stick to my m18 compact bandsaw from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang For The Buck As an electrican for more than 28 years I have found another milwaukee tool that makes my job easier. The M12 family has some of the best, lightest tools going and this is no exception. The best is you can bring it up in the air on a ladder or lift and speed up the job even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves us alot of time. This is a safe tool to use. It saves us alot of time in bringing a large cord connected tool. If you are cutting small diameter conduit and allthread it's great. Cutting in the ceiling needs a one handed tool. Of course we use the big bandsaws for bigger jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite tool. As a electrician the mojority of my work is on small pipe, 1 1/2" on down. This new saw makes short work cutting conduit, threaded rod and strut. With the one handed control of this saw it makes it easy to make staight cuts every time.
