On the Go!
We are big fans of larger deep cut battery operated portable band saw because they simply can do so many tasks in the field. Our main use for these saws is working on agricultural equipment and repairs, literally, in the field and they have been a tool that our service truck keeps within an easy reach. The only downside to these deep cut band saws is the total size of the unit. They are large and can sometimes be difficult to get into the spaces where cuts need to be made. But if you are able to use these in an area without the space issues, the nice clean and semi cool cuts are a great benefit to service and repair. Beyond service, we have found that cutting PVC pipe with these band saws is easy and clean. Blades can be changed to make clean cuts in other high density water pipe making these tools useful for many utility contractors.
In the shop, we use both the large and compact band saws for most of our cutting needs because the metal dust and filings are not thrown all over. Grinders can make a mess and also create a lot of heat with a cut off blade sometimes removing the strength from bolts and other fasteners. While you do not see it as much in the battery line, there are small tables that you can purchase for these saws to use them as a vertical band saw with a table. With that table, the uses for these units simply keep increasing and the practicality of spending the money on them becomes easier.
The Dewalt unit was very powerful and our cut test on 3″ pipe with 1/8″ wall thickness was good. Our small diverter that we built was simple and easy compared to trying to make a cut on large pipe with a grinder. We would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a battery operated portable band saw. The only complaint we had was the tool that was needed to adjust the work stop. Some of the other models are tool free and that makes them slightly faster to use. One item that sticks out over all the others we have used is the adjustable D ring handle. This makes cutting large items a bit more comfortable and safe.
