I have used this for a few days now and it works like a charm. Lots of power and really smooth cuts.
I have used a lot of corded and cordless bandsaws.. I have used a lot of corded and cordless bandsaws this one tops them all but I had a hard time with Home Depot getting the free battery. Another solid workhorse of a saw from Milwaukee with plenty of power. I'd been looking forward to trying this saw out.
I'd had a look at its line powered counterpart at work and have had very good experiences with the M18 line of tools. This one is no exception to the rule and is very well built and easy to use with no sacrifice on power. With these extended capacity batteries and this fast charger you can keep this thing going all day if need be and not miss a beat. I've given it a pretty good workout and it's never flagged on anything I've thrown at it.Plenty of tool for the job. This kit comes with a great carrying case that holds the saw, battery charger and two batteries that come with the unit. When setting up the saw I wasn't sure that I had the blade installed properly as the directions were not real clear and no pictures were provided but it went on and worked fine with little effort. The saw is hefty but the weight is used to push the blade through the material with no effort on your part to push the saw down. It cuts through metal pipes like a hot knife through butter.
Very easy to use and has plenty of power, which you can adjust to your job needs with a handy control knob with speed settings from 1 - 5. As a bonus it has a nice work light built into it that lights up the work area. Overall, with ample power and two batteries it will get the job done easily. And with no power cord to trip over.
One less corded tool needed. I have had the non-fuel band saw for a few years now, and it has served me well. But it couldn't handle some of the bigger pieces I need to cut. So I had to keep a corded deep cut band saw for those items. This saw will handle the big pieces, and handle them well.Great way to cut metal. This is a very handy tool. It easily cuts through light or hard metals with ease. There is plenty of life in the provided 18 volt batteries for many cuts. The tool is well balanced and can be maneuvered easily for the cuts.
The deep throat as well as the adjustable plate is also good for getting an accurate cut. I used it to cut 1/8' angle iron as well as lighter metals where I would be struggling with a hack saw, I was able to cut through like butter. I find it much more convenient than other methods I have used for cutting metal. After charging the battery I put this to good use. With the band saw I was able to cut multiple pieces at once of different lengths at a time.
It cut nice and smooth ends for me. I think the only problem I had was getting the blade first installed and the instructions only had shown how it looked. I found that putting it in the guide rollers first then around the drive wheels worked out fine.
The unit is a little heavy but is manageable as long as you are cutting straight down. A real time saver for piece work. The corded Milwaukee deep cut band saws we used in construction never failed a job task. They are tough, took plenty of abuse and never quit (like we had to).
It is refreshing to now have as powerful and rugged a tool, but in a very convenient and portable cordless format. This is a review of Milwaukee's 18V ["M18 FUEL" Lithium-Ion] Cordless Deep-Cut Bandsaw Kit #2729-22HD.
This band saw looks & Feels like it could do the job, (& it CAN)! After I read the easy to understand operator's manual, I Installed the included 14 teeth per inch band saw blade. There is a lever, on the front of the band saw. When the lever is pulled one way, it slacks the front wheel, permitting the saw blade to fit in it's track & around the two wheels.
Then, after the blade is securely in it's track, pulling the lever the opposite way tightens & securely holds the blade in it's track. I found the safety, lock button, above the trigger, very handy to prevent accidental starting. The band saw has 5 cutting speeds, from #1- slow, to #5- fast cutting. I cut off a section of 2' O. X 1/8' thick steel pipe in 20 seconds, on cutting speed #5.
I changed to #1 cutting speed & cut the same pipe in 71 seconds. I also cut off a section of angle iron, 3' x 3' x 1/4' thick, in 62 seconds on #5 fast speed. It took 99 seconds to cut the same angle iron on #1 slow speed. The cutting teeth felt just as sharp as new, even after cutting several other sections.
I used the tool for 2 hours & the battery still had plenty of life in it. The weight of the tool itself, supplies enough downward pressure to cut through steel, all I had to do was pull the trigger & keep it steady. The adjustable material guide/fence, kept the band saw against the work piece, without trying to pull me forward, while cutting.One hand on the trigger handle & my other hand on the front handle gave me full & steady control, while cutting. The trigger handle has a rubberized coating for anti-slip. Both handles are ergonomically designed & comfortable to hold.
The bright LED, supplied plenty of light on the work surface, when I pulled the trigger. The heavy duty carry case should protect the band saw, batteries & charger through nearly anything. This is a very heavy duty, powerful, great product. Everything you need to get started is in the box.
I have never seen one of these before, so I went on YouTube to see a video. The instructions are okay, but I wasn't confident that I had the blade on correctly until I confirmed with the video. I really can't believe this is cordless because it has a TON of power. The battery charges quickly and stays charged. I tried it on some angle iron and it was no effort at all to saw through.It works great for a right handed person but I suspect a lefty might have trouble seeing what they are cutting because the tool is angled and I think the project would be blocked from view. I can't check that theory because I can't do anything left handed. I checked my cuts with a square and they are perfect. The saw makes some noise but not nearly what I had expected and much quieter than most of my other metal working tools.
A person would be limited by material 4' or less but that is much larger than anything I need it for. This Band Saw with the 9.0Ah batteries is fantastic. Customer service is our top priority!
