Summary: a great saw . it is heavier than the previous Milwaukee . The extra weight is noticeable when used , [ A trade off , of course . This is a saw with power ! ] No plastic carry box comes with it , which was a convenience I liked when packing saw to from jobs.
Summary: I shopped all over the net looking for one of these and I found the best price here on Amazon. They even beat the company that my wife works for (they are a Milwaukee dealer). This saw has tons of power and it cuts thru just about anything without slowing down thanks to the gear drive.
Summary: I have been a loyal Milwaukee Tool customer for decades. Unfortunately, at this time, their wormdrive circular saw is garbage, and so is their service. The lower guard is not attached well, and constantly jams up on longer runs, so work has to be stopped, and the lower guard lifted, after a...
Summary: The saw seems to work OK, but I think I'm done with Milwaukee, Milwaukee is now apparently Milwaukee of China, not just made in China. Had I known that it was chinese I would have bought a cheaper Saw from some place like Harbor freight.
Summary: As a contractor I am always looking for quality, and this one has got it. Its as powerful as any worm drive, yet lite.Its also has a very good warranty. The little plastic lever on the saw guard looks like it could be easily broken but we'll see.
Summary: I just bought this saw and it cuts wood like a hot knife through butter. I have a Milwaukee M12 impact driver and I love that little guy, so that's what made me want to buy another Milwaukee product. I have used skil, Makita, and Dewalt saws. I will say this one beats them hands down.
Summary: Until I bought this saw I was still using my mid 1940's origional Skillsaw which is very heavy and I wanted to replace it with a quality saw that has plenty of power and the blade on the left side of the saw, since I am right handed.
Summary: Incredibly powerful saw. Torque to spare. The blade spins slower (4500 rpm), so it's not as noisy as a "side-winder". For brief cutting outside, I did without hearing protection (for any more than a cut or two, the ear-plugs were in, though).
Summary: I bought this saw to work alongside my Bosch wormdrive saw, thinking a few years of development might make this Milwaukee the better choice. The short answer is no, the Bosch is a better saw. This Milwaukee is still a damn good saw, it just has a few shortcomings if you use it for a living.
