FREE SHIPPING - Milwaukee (Corded) Circular Saw - 15 Amp, 7 1/4in., Model# 6394-21
Plenty of power
I bought this saw to install hardwood in my home and it more than did the job. Plenty of power and very accurate for a circular saw. Replaced an old Porter Cable with this and it was a pleasant surprise just how good it was.

But it's a Milwaukee!
I've had mine 30 minutes, haven't plugged it up, so I can't tell you what I like. But I can tell you some things I don't.
The housing- all of it, including the saw blade, - is PLASTIC - will it survive the fall off my shop roof that warped my B&D? Doubtful.
It's long on the front - like an old Edsel. Do the guys that design these things ever use them? Don't plan on using this one in tight quarters to cut a hole in a wall.
First thing I did was pinch a runny blood blister on the end of my finger with the adjustable handle latch!
Second thing was having to set the saw down to open the (really nice) case to put it back in - there's no place to grip the case top to open it - the carrying handle's on the bottom part of the case.
Oh, you have to collapse the saw's adjustable handle completely to get it back in the case.
It may say Milwaukee, but so far it ain't! Maybe after I use it I'll have something good to say.

Buy this saw
This is the best circular saw I have ever used. It is light yet powerful and easily zips through new and old wood. I especially liked the detachable power cord which makes it a cinch to store everything. Look no further if you want a great saw.

The saw to buy
If you are only going to own ONE circular saw, this is the one. If you are going to own more than one, this should be your first. Light, easy to drive a straight line, positive and easy depth and bevel adjustments. The Tilt-Lok handle is great for tight spots and just plain personal preference. Excellent cutting power and torque. Easy blade changes and a carry case that really protects. What else could you want in a 7.25 saw???

Hold out well.
Drop it and use it again and again. Works well have had this one for 5 years in a school shop. If it can last with them it will last you a lifetime.

GREAT CIRCULAR SAW
THIS SAW IS SUPER DEPENDABLE AND ALWAYS CUTS A TRUE LINE. IT NEVER BINDS IN THE WOOD AND HAS THE POWER TO CUT THROUGH ANYTHING I HAVE EVER TRIED TO CUT WITH IT. IT'S WELL BALANCED AND EASY TO GUIDE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

milwaukee corded circularsaw- out of the Dark Ages
I was extremely impressed with the Milwaukee corded circuclar saw! I opted to upgrade from my Craftsman circular saw which struggled to cut butter, when I accidently cut through the cord!? Don't tell the wife! Upon some serious research on the net and having talked to people in construction trades, I mapped my way to a successful, well thought-out purchase at Northern Tool. I've been smiling since, cutting a variety of lumber without a hitch. The saw is powerful, agile, and operates as advertise. Thanks for a hassle free buying experience online. I would recommend this saw and shopping site to anyone.

Milwaukee (Corded) Circular Saw
Another high quality product from Milwaukee. I use this tool nearly every day in my home improvement projects and I couldn't be happier. I would pay more for a tool of this quality, but glade I didn't have too.
- Ease of adjustments - NO TOOLS REQUIRED. Literally takes longer to unplug the cord than to change the cut depth or angle.
- Holds the settings all day if required.
- HIgh quality materials everywhere.
- Easy to see and accurate cut marks
- Ergonomic. Very comfortable in my hands.
- Made in USA
- Absolutely none. Milwaukee got it 100% correct.

I have used a circular saw for well over 40 years and decided to relegate it to masonry duty. After researching extensively I decided on this saw. After a year of use I am glad I made this choice. Saw is smooth and powerful and the handle adjustment is more helpful than I guessed it would be. The baseplate is easy to guide with a square or straightedge and depth adjustment is easy to set. Great Tool.

Milwaukee circular saw
My husband decided to upgrade to this Milwaukee saw when a Makita died. While he has other saws (Makita, Skil) he only goes for this one. It is well built. He says: "It feels good, it feels right . When it is running you know you have something powerful in your hand. It cuts true. It has many adjustments, is very durable, takes a lot of beating. Easy to service." He wishes he had more Milwaukee tools!
