The Milwaukee Hole Dozer Hole Saw features Rip guard, the strongest tooth form in the industry, backed by the Rip guard limited lifetime tooth break warranty. Each tooth is built with more steel behind the cutting edge for added strength. The Rip Guard warranty on tooth breaks is a first for the hole saw industry. The added tooth strength along with 8% cobalt give added life to the teeth, allowing for increased productivity on the jobsite, as well as continued hole quality. The Hole Dozer includes Plug Jack, an all access slot design that allows for full access during plug removal. The Plug Jack gives access lower into the cup for thick material and higher towards the teeth for thin material. With multiple positions to apply leverage and better plug access, Plug Jack increases productivity and eliminates wasted downtime between holes. For fast, tool-free change-outs, use Milwaukee's universal Quick-Change Arbors. 49-56-7210, 49-56-7240, 49-56-7250 and 49-56-9100.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dull and unusable within minutes I've used countless hole saws to cut into steel. I usually use Diablo ones that are cheaper than Milwaukee, but my store won't stock them and my usual tool store was closed. This hole saw was dull within minutes of being used out of the package. It was used at low (proper) rpm with lubrication and not much pressure on the drill. (The same way I successfully make holes using cheap ones). After just over a minute of cutting it was useless and wouldn't cut anymore, not even a flake of metal would appear. Complete waste of money, and now I have the challenge of trying to return it. Would of got a much better cut from a cheaper Diablo, and even been able to use it for more cuts afterwards. Expected more from Milwaukee, especially considering it was a better brand and cost almost twice as much as the usual hole saws I buy. I've even had better luck with princess auto/ harbor freight hole saws. It would work for wood, but definitely not for metal (which is is supposedly capable of cutting). Never again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bi-metal badness Had to drill 4 holes in a piece of 1" thick particleboard. First hole took maybe 30 seconds--fantastic! Next hole 45 sec. The third hole took approx 2 min, while the final took close to 4 min! The drill was turning at 300-500 rpm for all, and the blade was not hot after any. Will go for the carbide flavour next time.
