Excerpt: Very Handy tool for occasional use. As with any battery cutting tool, batteries don't last all that long, but I expected that. The tool works well, very nice power, nice design. Beats stringing a power chord for that occasional cut, or works well in close quarters.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Long Run Time, Powerful
Excerpt: No frills, no unwanted features, this saw does what I ask every time (with a high capacity battery installed). If there is a cut you didn't think you could make in hardwoods, steel, or aluminum, I have likely used this saw to do it in the last 18 months. The balance is perfect for controlled cuts even with then larger battery installed. If I could find the same tool in 18v, I would buy it again tomorrow.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Design, Great Blade, Performs Miracles, Powerful, Safe
Excerpt: I bought it because I'm renovating an old sailboat and have to do a lot of work in close quarters. Im tried it out cutting outlet openings in a rent house i'm also renovating. it cut easily thru 2 layers of 3/4 " wood (probably cypress and pine). The small battery lasted longer than i expected on a charge.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Great Blade, Long Enough Run Time, Powerful Enough, Safe, Small And Lighy
Excerpt: I put the saw aside for my trusty plug jig saw because I could not get it to cut straight. Tried to adjust the angle, which was set at zero degrees, and cut slow. Also the bracket around the blade makes it hard to see the cutline. With my limited use, I'd give it a 5 out of 10. Though I'm happy with my other Milwaukee M12 drills and saws. The lith-ion batt is a workhorse and being able to swap batts between many tools saves time and aggrevation.
