Milwaukee® Introduces The World's Most Compact Portable Bandsaw

Milwaukee® Tool Corporation continues to expand their Test and Measurement line and M12™ LITHIUM-ION system with the introduction of the new 160x120 Thermal Imager, powered by M12™. Ideal for professional preventative maintenance and troubleshooting applications, the new tool features 160x120 pixel, high resolution thermal images, a visual camera for standard pictures, and the broadest temperature range in its class (-10° to 350°C/ 14° to 662°F) for unmatched productivity.
Milwaukee® Electric Tool Corporation delivers the ideal solution for overhead or one-handed cutting applications with the introduction of the M12™ Cordless Sub-Compact Band Saw. At only 2.7 kg and 330 mm in length, the new tool is the lightest and most compact cordless band saw on the market with less than half the size and weight of deep cut band saws.
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. This addresses OSHA guarding requirements to make the tool suitable for one-handed use.
This powerful saw can cut through 19 mm EMT in only 3 seconds, and will deliver over 150 cuts per charge with the included M12™ REDLITHIUM-ION 3.0Ah High Capacity battery. With a 41.3 x 41.3 mm cut capacity and low vibration, the M12™ Band Saw provides clean cuts on the most common small diameter metal cutting applications such as 19 mm EMT, 19 mm threaded rod and 41.3 x 41.3 mm Unistrut.  Complete with a variable speed trigger and LED light, the new tool is easy to use and provides fast, clean cuts.
The M12™ Band Saw will also include the new Milwaukee® TPI Sub-Compact Portable Band Saw Blade and should only be used with this blade. Replacement Milwaukee blades can be purchased separately as well.
Powered by revolutionary M12™ RED LITHIUM-ION™ Battery technology*, the new band saw is compatible the entire M12™ System, now offering over 35 cordless Lithium-Ion products.  The M12™ platform is the largest sub-compact system in the industry, offering innovative solutions in power, productivity, and portability.
