Milwaukee M18 Deep Cut Band Saw Metal Bandsaws and Cutoff Saws

Milwaukee M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw Preview – Dual Trigger


Walk into most fab shops and the probability is pretty high that you’ll see a Milwaukee portable band saw, also known as a Portaband. Now, Milwaukee is taking that same performance and turning it cordless with the new Milwaukee M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw. You’ll now be able to make those deeper and larger cuts without a cord, and a dual trigger enhances safety as well.

Milwaukee M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw Features

With a 5-inch wide opening and 5-inch deep cut delivers the largest cut-capacity of any portable band saws. You’ll be able to cut almost any round or rectangle stock in most shops. Furthermore, with the M18 Deep Cut in a stand, this will work great for tubing and plate fabrication. Furthermore, being cordless, the M18 Deep Cut band saw can be thrown around anywhere in the shop for cutting, regardless of where the outlets and power-cords reside.

“In response to calls from safety directors for band saws that include certain features, Milwaukee developed a dual-trigger system for our M18 product that meets their jobsite needs,” said Kevin Gee, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “With the M18 FUEL Deep Cut Dual-Trigger Band Saw, the combination of the added trigger system and performance of the original M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw results in a product that can be used to safely cut a variety of jobsite materials.”

Performance and capacity aren’t the only things Milwaukee was after, the M18 Deep Cut Dual-Trigger saw also includes enhancements for durability. Job Site Armor technology uses composite material and crush zones to absorb impacts from accidental drops. In addition, Milwaukee included an all-metal direct drive, rather than a chain-drive, providing longer life and less servicing, while clutch protects the gear and motor from blade lock-ups and jams.

Our Thoughts

We love the corded Milwaukee deep cut band saw, so we’re pretty sure we’ll love it even more without the cord. It’s assumed that the 2 included 5Ah batteries should last most users a full day. Once we get one in the shop for testing, we’ll be sure to post our finding on the runtime, performance, and ergonomics. This Milwaukee M18 FUEL Deep Cut Dual-Trigger band saw should hit the shelves of your favorite tool shop sometime in November 2019. Not far behind it, a compact version, M18 FUEL Compact Band Saw (2829-22) will release in early 2020.
