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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
