he Bosch GCB18V-2N 18V Compact Band Saw is designed to make pro cuts in tight spaces, corners and overhead, weighing only 7.3 Lbs. (tool only, not including battery). The saw is up to 60% lighter and 40% more compact than standard deep-cut band saws. It has a cut rate of 530 surface feet per minute. It accommodates most common-size materials, with cuts up to 2-1/2 In. on a single pass, delivering precise cuts to a variety of metal materials - including conduit, uni-strut, threaded rod, and copper and black pipe. The saw can save time by making clean cuts in pipe (with fewer sparks), lessening the need for grinding and deburring after the cut. It has a tool-free blade guard, which can help to protect the blade from debris, and tool-free blade change, with easy access to the blade and easy blade installation. This tool has a conveniently placed centered handle and an enhanced soft-grip main handle, plus an LED light.
