This is the one to have.
I use this professionally at heavy-industrial sites,where power is often unavailable. The work requires both speed and precision and this saw delivers both. I recently used it to cut a whole pile of strut sections. It split the line on every cut. 20+ cuts and only dropped one bar on a 4.0 battery. If you need a portable band saw, this is the one to have. The built-in light falls perfectly on the cut line. The results are simply amazing.

A must have item for those who work meta
Making a good, clean cut on iron, steel, copper or other metals can be a real problem. Hacksaws do the job, but only at the expense of long careful strokes that may or may not be compatible with the project at hand.

With the Milwaukee portable bandsaw, if you can reach it, you've got a perfect cut in minimal time. Once you line the part to be cut up with the on-board anvil and push the button, you're done in seconds.

I bought this tool, like so many other Milwaukee items, for a specific task. I had to custom cut no less than thirty bolts and threaded rods, all of them in a hurry. If I had been forced to use a hacksaw, I would have had hacked bolts on at least half of them, and that after hours of work.

Not so with this tool. It was a matter of a couple minutes, and other than the hot bolt ends, there were zero problems.

It's not for everyone, but if you've got to cut a lot of pipe or bolts, or (my most recent use) a security bail on a trailer lock to which we lost the keys, this is the tool to have.

Absolutely worth it...
I posted a review on HD's site and want to copy it's a worthy tool. This is without a doubt one of the most excellent products I have had the chance to use. While it comes with everything you need to initially get going, it is super simple to begin. The package comes with a battery, charger, bandsaw blade and of course, the bandsaw. The blade is very simple to install and you must follow the instructions to understand the required teeth direction of the blade. It is very, very capable of cutting through anything you throw at it...and yes, it is like a hot knife through butter as long as you let the tool do the cutting and do not force feed it. Once you begin into your cut, it pulls the piece firmly against the seat and cuts without any drawdown on the motor. It truly is amazing and will forever replace my hacksaw. For those of you that fabricate with steel, pipefitters...heck, anything to do with metal less than 6" square, this thing is for you. Again, it is absolutely amazing, and you need not worry about cords, generators and so's ever so conveniently 18volt and it does not even feel like it but cuts so well. Try it, a trusted brand, a cool and useful tool, and the work all go well together making for a less stressful day. You can now forget those you have with your hacksaw and a tired arm. Now mind you, it is large and may not fit into some areas but it still is worth having on hand because you certainly will use it.

Easy To Use
The perfect tool for any electrician
I am an electrician that works in the industrial side. I bought this bandsaw & couldn't be happier. The batteries last longer than I expected & even when the battery is getting low the saw still keeps cutting strong. It cuts down the time to drag out a generator or extension cord to cut something away from the main areas. We use this everyday & it has gotten to the point that we don't ever use the corded one unless we have to. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to cut variety of sizes. I also have the subcompact bandsaw mainly for strut, 3/4" ridgid conduit & 1" ridgid conduit but I hardly use it anyone now that I have this. It's a prefect design with a truly fast cutting speed. It is worth the money. Do not buy the compact bandsaw over this one, you will be disappointed.

Easy To Use
The Captain pretty much sums it up. This thing is great. Cuts great and the battery life is fantastic on this thing. The blade is good but mine wore down pretty quickly. I've always got spares though so not an issue.

Drop cords are now obsolete
The work light and the easy adjust work stop are just icing on an already impressive tool.
