Both these tool manufactures are regarded as some of the best makers of quality Band Saws. Both of these two options are highly rated also. Users gave the Milwaukee an rating on average of 4.4/5 stars. You can compare that to the Makita BPB180Z which holds an average score of 4.1/5 stars.

The Milwaukee 6238-20 comes with several features you wont find on other similar Band Saws. For example Plastic / Metal. The BPB180Z by Makita although, is very competitive offering Makita-built motor delivers faster cutting with 275-530 ft./min. and even 6-setting variable speed control dial enables user to match the speed to the application.

Both of these two choices are an exceptional option for someone whose shopping for Portable Band Saws
