Important Notice: Lithium-Ion Item - Express Delivery option not available due to transportation regulations.
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. in length, making it ideal for overhead or one-handed cutting applications. This powerful saw can cut through 3/4 in. 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 in. x 1-5/8 in. 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. The tool also includes a variable speed trigger, and LED light. The M12 Sub-Compact Cordless band saw should be used only with Milwaukee 48-39-0572 Sub-Compact Portable Band Saw Blades.
Features:
  • One-Handed Cuts: Most compact size and lightest weight of any cordless band saw
  • Powerful Motor: Cuts 3/4 in. EMT in 3 seconds, up to 150 cuts per charge with the XC battery
  • Meets OSHA Guarding Requirements: Suitable for One-Handed use
  • Blade Tension Adjustment: Adjustable blade tracking

Perfect for me, but i'm not using it every day
I bought this for a metal baluster project at home. I already have the batteries for the M12 system. The saw is simple and works great on the metal balusters. It will work great on thin wall conduit too up to a certain size. I can't saw how heavy duty it is but it works great for what I'm using it work and it's not heavy duty work. I wish I had had this when i did the metal railing on my deck the other year instead of a chop saw. It's a nice clean cutting tool.

Every installer should have one
I found one of these at a jobsite three years ago. I borrowed it to cut some Unistrut. I fell in love then and there, and had to buy my own. Put simply, this tool is The. Cats. Pajamas. It is well balanced and easy to control one handed standing on a ladder, which you simply can't do with larger saws. The iron rail sight makes it fairly easy to cut square. Using the XC batteries gives it longevity better than any tool this size doing metal work ever has. It's good for up to 1-1/2 GRS or PVC conduit. Again I can't stress enough the ease of use being able to stabilize work with a free hand while sawing. We recently had to remove several 300 foot runs of old fiber optic cable in innerduct that wound around inside a building. Using this to cut the work into manageable segments in literally two seconds saved HUGE amounts of time, and it even went straight through the Kevlar fiber in the cable itself without stopping. Not to mention using this is far more stable than using a reciprocating saw. Every tech and engineer I've handed this to has grunted like Tim Allen and declared "Tool of the Year" and "I'm getting one of these."

Great little saw! Just buy it if your an electrician, money well spent
Love this little saw! Have had it about 2 weeks and have cut 1/2, 3/4, and 1” EMT. Really did not notice a cutting speed difference from my Milwaukee corded band saw, and the one handed operation and light weight is awesome. Also cut some 1” rigid and some gas pipe, it did it well just takes a few seconds. Would use it for a couple cuts of rigid but if I was cutting all day I would use the corded. Amazing for remodel work as I have taken it into attics and crawl spaces were only a sawzall was possible before. Also +1 to CPO as the Milwaukee plastic case was damaged on arrival, one call and they had a new case sent out to me!

I like the variable speed, the bottom is covered so you don't cut your hands.
The only thing that worries me is that the blade wheels are made of plastic, Time will tell how well this holds up.

It is a great tool for jobs that have limited power for corded tools and working in high places such as scissor lifts. durable and great battery life with the 4.0 amp and 6.0 amp batteries. Light enough to use one handed

great for overhead work due to its light weight plus M12 battery keeps it light. Use it for 1 1/4 and smaller black gas pipe.
I bought this because I'm doing a lot of gas work in service garages. When doing work in ceiling spaces, plus on a man lift. Your tools need to be light and compact. This fits the requirements. Since I bought this two of my buddy's got one. Blades are to cut clean no filing needed.

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.
