About the Milwaukee 2429-21XC

Milwaukee 2429-21XC M12 Band Saw Kit. The Sub-Compact Band Saw by Milwaukee, like most products Milwaukee makes, is the most compact and lightest cordless band saw on the market. Compared to a traditional deep cut band saw, the Milwaukee 2429-21XC M12 Band Saw Kit is half the weight at 6.75 lbs, providing one-handed portability and convenience. The Milwaukee 2429-21XC M12 Band Saw Kit is 12” in length, making it ideal for tight space applications. This Band Saw easily cuts through 3/4” EMT conduit and produces up to 150 cuts per charge. The Milwaukee 2429-21XC M12 Band Saw Kit is powered by one REDLITHIUM XC High Capacity battery (Sold Separately), and performs clean cuts on the most common small diameter metal cutting applications. Additional features of this saw include; a dual-latching lower guard, a variable speed trigger, LED light and Milwaukee’s 5-year warranty. Kit comes with one 18 TPI Sub-Compact Band Saw Blade, one M12 XC High Capacity REDLITHIUM Battery, one M12 Lithium-ion Battery Charger and a Carrying Case.

Great for residential electricians... Rated 5 by Anonymous
I am a professional residential electrician of 20 years and a huge part of my job is cutting 1/2" EMT conduit much of the time. To say the least, this bandsaw has made my life a whole lot easier. Initially I was skeptical about the versatility, power, run-time and general quickness of the cuts, but a skeptic I am no longer. First off, the 12v XC battery is awesome. I can go all day long on a single charge. It takes about 3-4 seconds to cut through 1/2" emt conduit. Plenty fast. Best of all I can kiss that shoulder and elbow pain I get from my regular hand-hacksaw goodbye. Yes you can cut a bit faster with a band new blade on a regular hacksaw. But, after about a day, the blade dulls, slowing down the time it takes you to cut and is harder to cut in general. Plus throughout the day you simply aren't cutting as fast by hand due to the fatigue from doing it manually. If I absolutely had to complain about one thing about this saw it would be that it's just a tad bit heavy at being a smudge under 7 lbs. The only thing I can't comment on is blade life since I've only used it about a month now. Overall I think this product is a perfect for professional electricians. Thank you Milwaukee Tools!

BEST TOOL I HAVE EVER OWNED!! Rated 5 by Anonymous
I am an electrician in the residential field and when I am installing conduit I am constantly making cuts... I started out with the usual hacksaw and my shoulder was always sore so I started using the Klein EMT pipe cutter. The shoulder stopped hurting but then my wrist and hands were sore so when I seen a demo of this bad boy I HAD TO HAVE IT!! I mounted a double hook on my ladder for stability and convienence and the blade opening fits perfect around the back ladder leg. If your in any trade that your using a hacksaw or pipe cutter and tired of the cutting aspect of work I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BAND SAW it rips right through 1/2 onduit and have been using the same blade for about two months now and could not be happier with my purchase.

i am a cctv / security / fire alarm tech . most recent job is approx 3/4's of a mile of conduit for cctv in a wide open parking lot . closest outlet is about 2000 feet away . with out the m12 band saw it would make my days hell . had it about a week and it works great . pretty much every m12 tool i own i ? how i got along with out it . if you are looking for a good little band saw and can deal with the limited cutting capacity then this is the one for you

Perfect tool for an unusual application in a salt mine Rated 5 by Anonymous
I was tasked with cutting the excess length of the "tails" of roof bolts (dywidags) in a salt mine to increase clearance to equipment. The bolts are 1" diameter and are a harder steel than rebar. I had to crawl into a tight, restricted space in order to reach the bolts that I needed to trim. I needed a very compact saw, and a quick search of the Milwaukee tools that are available revealed this little gem. I only needed to apply light pressure, use a little lubricant on the blade, and so far, I've cut 10 bolt tails, with 2 left to go, on a single blade and on a single charge. I needed to make a makeshift extension to reach one of the bolts, extending the tool out by 3 feet. It's light weight made it easy to handle, and again, it made very quick work of cutting the bolt tail. This tool made this difficult task much easier than I would have imagined. 5 stars plus in my opinion! I need to get one of these for my home workshop.
