¡°The M12 Band Saw is not only ideal for one-handed cutting applications because of its size, it is the ONLY band saw on the market with a fully integrated lower guard that covers the blade outside the active cutting area,¡± says David Lincoln, Product Manager, Cordless for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. ¡°This addresses OSHA guarding requirements to make the tool suitable for one-handed use.¡±
This powerful saw can cut through 3/4¡± EMT in only 3 seconds, and will deliver over 150 cuts per charge with the included M12™ REDLITHIUM XC High Capacity battery.
