Ideal for plumbers and electricians who need cutting power in tight and overhead spaces, the lightweight Bosch BSH180-01 compact cordless band saw executes precise cuts to a variety of materials, including metal, copper pipes, and plastic piping.
It's powered by an 18-volt lithium-ion battery with Bosch-exclusive Electronic Cell Protection technology, which provides a five-times-longer cycle life than competitive lithium-ion batteries by monitoring output levels to prevent overheating. This kit comes with two Fat Pack battery for longer runtime and saw blades to get you started right out of the box.
At 8.25 pounds, including the Fat Pack battery, this lightweight band saw is extremely portable, making it an ideal tool for use in overhead applications like electrical work. And the 18-volt lithium-ion battery helps prevent overheating in tough applications and protects motor from overload damage. Despite its compact size, the rugged aluminum base is durable enough to withstand tough jobsite conditions.
The band saw is designed with the battery pack above the handle, giving you an ergonomic and balanced feel on both sides. The BSH180 accommodates most common size materials cut by core trade users up to 2-1/2 inches on a single pass. It also includes an integrated LED work light that illuminates your cut line in dark areas.
Like all tools in Bosch's 18-volt line, this band saw can be used with either a 1.3 Ah Slim Pack battery (model BAT609), a 1.5 Ah Slim Pack HC (model BAT610G), or a 2.6 Ah Fat Pack battery (model BAT618). If you're looking for a lightweight option, the Slim Pack batteries are the perfect choice. If longer runtime is what you need, the Fat Pack will do the job.
The BSH180-01 comes with the ProVantage three-year protection plan, which guarantees two years of battery protection and one year of tool protection. Under this plan, you can receive two years of free battery replacements, tool replacement for one year, and a free tool repair package for the second and third years.
