The M12™ bandsaw is not only ideal for one-handed cutting applications because of its size, it is the only bandsaw on the market with a fully integrated lower guard that covers the blade outside the active cutting area.
Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Bandsaw users in the ToolSelect community have been revering compact bandsaws, and their interest is peaked with the Milwaukee M12™ cordless sub-compact bandsaw, which Milwaukee claims is the most compact bandsaw in the world.
Milwaukee power tools regularly generate interest among ToolSelect’s members, and this bandsaw will be no different. With a weight of 6.75 pounds and a length of 12 inches, Milwaukee notes the tool is the lightest and most compact cordless bandsaw on the market.
“The M12™ bandsaw is not only ideal for one-handed cutting applications because of its size, it is the only bandsaw 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.”
Milwaukee claims the tool can cut through ¾” EMT in three seconds and will give users more than 150 cuts per charge with the included M12™ REDLITHIUM XC high-capacity battery. The tool is compatible with the entire M12™ system.
The saw features a 1-5/8” x 1- 5/8” cut capacity and is intended for small-diameter metal cutting applications. A variable-speed trigger and LED light are meant to help users work with speed and precision.
“It’s always nice to see more Milwaukee power tools in our community,” says Gerry Barnaby, Director of Excitement with ToolSelect. “Our members love to compare and contrast each new tool not just with other bandsaws, for example, but also within each brand. I’m sure the discussions will be lively regarding this and any compact bandsaw.”
