Summary: I didn't realize it when I first used this saw that it was defective until my piece I was cutting got damaged. I found that the bolt on the front of the saw that allows the guide to move up and down was missing. This could have been a medical issue had I got hit with the saw when it jumped off of my oak trim I was cutting. I value Milwaukee products, which just about all of my tools are Milwaukee.
Summary: no lack of power with this saw. It's a bit heavy, but that it because it is built like a brick sh---house. Mega-saw. Chews up anything I throw at it. Such a huge upgrade over the junker that we had before. Co-worker likes to leave it in the driveway here so I'll report back on how it handles being run over by an 18-wheeler soon.
Summary: Have used this saw countless times and it is awesome. I know cordless is considered to be the way to go today but I still can't go wrong with this Milwaukee product. We recently finished by basement and after my father used this saw a few times he is sold on Milwaukee products.
Summary: I am left handed and have never found any southpaw friendly products at big box stores. This saw is made of high quality materials and when paired with the right blade it can cut thru any piece of limber with ease.
