NEW 18V LXT BAND SAW GETS HIGH MARKS IN VIDEO REVIEW

Rob Robillard impressed with precision and versatility of XBP01

Rob Robillard at ToolBoxBuzz.com tried out the new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Compact Band Saw (XBP01), and gave it high marks for the compact size, versatility, and precision cutting -- as well as the fast-charging battery and breadth-of-line. Check out his video-review here. 

Engineered for One-Handed Operation
The new 18V LXT Band Saw has a compact size and weighs only 7.5 lbs., which is up to 25% less weight than top competitors in the category. In addition, the XBP01 has a cover over the blade (outside the cutting area) which meets ANSI Standard 60745-2-20 and qualifies the saw as suitable for appropriate one-handed operation. It's an ideal cutting solution for electricians, mechanical contractors and plumbers. For more on the XBP01, go here.
