The Milwaukee M12 2429-21XC M12™ Cordless Sub-Compact Band Saw Kit

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 ¾” 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. The tool also includes a variable speed trigger, and LED light. Backed by Milwaukee’s® 5-year warranty the 2429-21XC comes equipped with (1) M12™ REDLITHIUM™ XC High Capacity battery, 30-minute charger, (1) 18 TPI metal cutting blade, and a hard carrying case.
