Model # 2872-20 Store SKU # 1001342337

The MILWAUKEE M18 Brushless Threaded Rod Cutter (2872-20) is a dedicated solution for cutting the most common threaded rod sizes on the job site. This includes coarse thread rod from 1/4-Inch, 3/8-Inch and 1/2-Inch mild steel to 1/4-Inch and 3/8-Inch stainless steel. The cordless threaded rod cutter is powered by the MILWAUKEE POWERSTATE Brushless Motor and delivers 400+ cuts while powered by an M18 REDLITHIUM 2.0Ah Battery. The four-sided cutting dies allow users to cut all sizes of threaded rod on one tool by simply rotating the dies. The all thread cutter has the clearest line of sight and delivers clean, burr-free cuts allowing nuts to be threaded on by hand without having to file down the ends. The tool features auto jaw opening allowing fast, repetitive cuts while a reverse button helps prevent unintended cuts. The tool's centered grip provides the best balance for one-handed overhead trims, while the flat horizontal design provides users with a stable surface for benchtop cuts.

Does a quick clean cut on threaded rod. I Have had no issues with starting nuts or split rings. Tool is very quick when you have to cut a lot of threaded rod. Only reason I'm giving it four stars is due to its price, size and weight. It is very expensive to only be able to cut threaded rod. Also Definitely not something I would want to be working overhead with all day long. Other than that the tool is very useful if you have a use for it. I invested in it because I cut a lot of threaded rod but if you only need once in awhile I don't believe it would be worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice tool I cut a lot of rod. It wont really pay off till the end of the job when i have to go through and trim off my hangers

Rated 2 out of 5 by from two Thumbs down I’m a commercial new construction plumber and have to make hundreds of cuts for hangers. I knew this tool was a one trick pony but it doesn’t even do it’s one trick well smh. Still leaves a bur on the end of the rod and either use channel locks to get the nut on or bust out the bandsaw to get a better cut. It doesn’t cut 1/2” rod and no it wasn’t stainless rod either, and yes I made sure it had a full battery. All my power tools are Milwaukee but really disappointed in this tool especially because it wasn’t cheap. Better off buying a bandsaw. Only reason a gave it an extra star was because it is easier to cut rod when you’re on a ladder, but still need channel locks to get the nut on. Oh and would of been nice if it had a rafter hook to hang off the ladder/lift.

do you have to change blades for 1/4 to 3/8 to 1/2 inch rods?
Asked by: kingjames
The dies have 3 sizes on 4 cutting surfaces. There are 2 cutting surfaces for 3/8. You have to remove the dies and reinstall them to change sizes as they do not turn in place.
