Overview

Model # 2445-20 Store SKU # 1000822681

Milwaukee's M12 Cordless High Performance Jig Saw is the most compact, lightest weight professional cordless jig saw on the market. Powered by the M12 RED LITHIUM battery system, the tool is ideal for trim carpenters, remodelers, cabinet/countertop installers, plumbers, electricians, and HVAC professionals for making quick cuts in wood, metal, wall tile, or plastics without the hassle of pulling out a cord. The Hybrid Grip handle design combines the best features from both top handle and barrel grip jig saws to provide superior cut control. The low center of gravity grip is ideal for precision during curved cutting applications. The M12 Jig Saw is designed to minimize vibration by using a fully counterbalanced mechanism and positioning the limited tool weight directly over the cutting area. Backed by Milwaukee's 5-year warranty the 2445-20 comes equipped with (1) 10 TPI wood cutting blade, anti-splintering insert, and non-marring shoe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy M-18 instead Bought this to replace old/poor Craftsman corded saw, and it was an improvement. Bought the M-12 as I only have a few M-18 tools and use mostly M-12 as I am homeowner DIY type and am willing to use smaller lighter tools that are less powerful. That said, this saw has three problems: There is no light There is no blower to clear cut line The base often loosens and tilts unexpectedly The M-18 has light, switchable blower and I hope a better mechanism to lock base. 2x the cost, however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee cordless Jig Saw This is my second time I bought this Jig Saw. I had the first one for over 7 Years and one day it stopped working. The battery power lites lit and the white lite started flashing until the battery was removed. I tried two KNOWN working battery packs with no change in symptoms. I could not find the reason for the symptoms and since it was out of warranty and the repair cost was the same as a new tool only. Since I would miss it I decided to replace it with the some model since all my cordless tools use the same battery pack

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs Adjustments First Do yourself a favor and remove the clear plastic dust guard, it does nothing but make it impossible to see your line. I also had an issue with the bevel adjustment lever coming loose constantly, theres two screws underneath the bottom plate that control the tightness. Once those two modifications were done its an excellent jig saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this tool I have a ton of milwaukee M12 & M18 tools—I love all of them...except this one. The shoe for this jig saw comes unlocked constantly and makes it impossible to use properly. Without fail, it comes loose and about two inches into any cut it starts to get wobbly. It is a poor craftsman who blames his tools...unless you are using this tool—then it is 100% to blame! I would not recommend you buy this tool until Milwaukee makes some improvements. As of Summer 2021—this is a bad jig saw.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with this purchase Unfortunately, I was not able to get a straight cut in a 18mm Plywood using clean cut blades for wood, I found that there is a small piece of acrylic that burned out after cutting a distance of 3 meters approximately. Also the battery died in this first round being able to cover only that distance of cuts. I finally returned it back to the store. This was my first electric tool.. I am disappointed.I recommend reading reviews before buy, that was not my case. It seems this is a known issue with this model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GARBAGE They need to recall these or QUIT selling them! The base will never stay straight so neither will your cuts. Had mine for 5 months and used it 6 times and the lock on the handle broke so now it won't turn on. I called about the warrenty to home depot and it costs 30$ and up to fix. Maybe! For 100$ I can get a new one. I will but it WILL NOT be Milwaukee! This is for anyone looking at these buy something else. U get what u pay for! Cheap product for cheap money!!

Does Milwaukee have plans of making an m12 fuel version of their jigsaw? I use many of their other m12 fuel tools, great

The lack of a dust blower on the current jigsaw is a deal breaker for my work.
Asked by: Vince77
Yes, the dust builds up behind the blade.

Why won't the bevel adjustment lock stay locked? I did exactly what the manuel said, and it will not stay locked. What a dissappointment.

Asked by: Kenny
I have same issue, need to check and make sure it is locked each time I use it.
