I used this saw yesterday,to cut thick metal pipes. This high torque machine is very powerful and cuts accurately. The battery still had power after cutting thick metal fence posts about 30 times.
It can be used in spots where oxy acetylene would be dangerous to people or to surrounding plastic parts.
Everyone in the fencing business demolition or anyone who builds or repairs small trailers, truck beds etc. , could benefit from one of these saws.
A cordless reciprocating saw is still very useful in spots that are too tight for this machine to fit.
I already have three 18 volt Makita batteries.They make a smaller version of the saw and my batteries fit. I'm hoping they come out with a dual battery model that is the same size or larger than the Milwaukee saw pictured here. This has been done with their 36 volt chainsaw. It uses two 18 volt batteries.
Did Steve tell you that? Fuh - Steve. Just look at this tiny ad:
