great little saw!!
great for the small stuff, like unistrut, all-thread, cutting conduit up to 11/4". easy to use with one hand, great maneuverability, gets into tight spots the bigger porta-bands can't. but it is still very powerfull!! not a toy. works great on my electrical contractors service van.

Best cutting option for EMT and Strut
I use this band saw everyday for 100% of my EMT cutting 1/2"-1 1/2" and Uni-Strut that I previously used my Sawall for. The blades last for 100s of cuts and are easy to replace and inexpensive. One handed cuts overhead are so easy it will change the way you run pipe saving you time and the company money.

Amazing tool for a great price
As a commercial electrician this is a dream tool. I read both good and bad reviews but pulled the trigger on it anyways. But I went ahead a day bought the new 6.0 battery with it. This compact band saw is amazing. Battery last long, cuts Unistrut great. Used it a week before charging it. That's running 3/4 emt in and electric room. By far my favorite tool. Smaller than a football. Thanks!

Lightweight and powerful.
This tool is a 'must have' because it is so small, compact and lightweight. You can easily guide this tool with one hand. It cuts metal as well as any band saw of size.

Most Excellent Saw
Absolute must have for all electricians. If u have to cut a lot of conduit, threaded rod, flex, or anything else metal under 1.5 inches(the throat is designed for strut) this is your new best friend. It's super light weight, easy to use, and small enough to just toss back in your bag and move on. This is my second one, and the first one is still going strong, I love these saws. I really can't think of any issues I've had with them.

Does the bare tool include a case?
Alan on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The bare tool does not come with a case, just the tool.

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 120 days.
