Excerpt: Good case to store and protect saw. Controls are a little stiff, but should loosen up with use/time. Unlike many Milwaukee corded power tools, this saw does not have the "positive lock" replaceable power cord that I have come to expect on construction (not woodworking) tools. Plenty of power, but buy a better blade. CPO has great service and delivery. Have bought tools from them before and will again.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Design, Good View Of Blade, Powerful, Safe
Cons: No blade brake, No Positive-lock Cord, Power Cord Not Twist-lock
Excerpt: I build outdoor projects as a side job and it keeps me very busy. Yesterday I went to grab my old circular saw and the metal housing was broke and fell apart. I purchased this Milwaukee 6390-21 and "Wow", cut great, not very loud and has the powerful to plow through wet, treated lumber. The blade adjustment and plate tilt are easy to use and lock tight. The tilt handle makes a huge difference in comfort level. Very impressed with this saw.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Powerful
Excerpt: I've used this saws predecessor for 15 years daily, as a primary saw for a construction crew. wire finaly gave way on the armature. not even close to wearing it out. I had to replace with same saw, no other could replace it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Hard To Wear Out, Long Run Time, Powerful, Safe
Excerpt: I had to cut some yard timbers yesterday and it worked out perfectly. is about the same weight as my 35 year old craftsman whose armature flew apart. I liked that I just had to pull the trigger and not fumble with extra safety switches, because they can be more dangerous to use than not.
