  • Summary: I use it every day when I am in the shop. It is far superior to a slow hack saw.

Armature blown.

E. Peterson, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: Always seemed a little weak compared to other 14" chop saws I've used on steel. If you look at the specs, the horsepower rating on the motor isn't what you'll get from a competitor. And the clamp is hard to use, like other folks have commented.

Good saw, bad switch

Chris G. Shue, Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: For the price I am happy with this saw. The cast iron base is nice because it doesn't walk around at all when running. Just like previous reviews my switch stuck in the on position.

not the best

Osorio Batres Silvia Rebeca "booknut", Amazon
7 May 2010
  • Summary: I am a fan of milwaukee tools but I have to admit that this model is not their best effort. If you need a truly heavy duty saw then this is not it. Although I haven't had any problems so far with this saw I know plenty of people who have and since I bought this based on price I really regret not...

Best Saw for the Money

GPS guy, Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: I've owned two of these--made the mistake of selling my first one thinking I would never need one again. Naturally, when I once again needed a steel-cutting chop saw I considered this model. Amazon, as usual has the best price.

Lost a loyal customer

TAZKE "TAZKE", Amazon
30 September 2008
  • Summary: I have had this saw for about 5 months when I noticed a small crack on the left side of the arm (I have used 3 blades). I contacted Milwaukee, of course you need to send it in for evaluation to see if it would fall under the warranty.

Okay for 90° cuts, not 45°

Celad, Amazon
19 August 2005
  • Summary: The stamped steel back half of the vise is not true vertical, so it's okay for 90° cuts. I needed 45° cuts on square stock and the cuts were oblique. I returned it and got the 6180-20 for $40 more. The base is cast aluminum and solid, but the vise is cast iron and therefore machined and square.

does the job

J. G., Amazon
2 April 2005
  • Summary: I have had my saw for a couple years now and have not had a problem. Seems other people have had switch problems but mine has worked fine and I have gone through around 30 abrasive wheels. I was disapointed to find that milwaukee just stamped there name on a foriegn tool.

Good Saw...Not Milwaukee's best product

DocT65, Amazon
19 September 2004
  • Summary: I bought this chop saw having been a longtime customer of Milwaukee tools. The saw works well, but does not have the "fit and finish" that most loyal Milwaukee customers have come to expect.
