Cordless circular saw
I would and have recommended this cordless saw to friends. I am amazed at how well it works for a cordless unit, And also the length of time before I need to change the battery pack. I haven't found anything I don't like on the saw and I wonder how I got along without it.

This is the first cordless saw I've used with total confidence. I've had other brands before and they just didn't have the guts to stand up to a days work. I used it to cut 2x4's, no problem; rip plywood, even 3/4-no problem. It's a tough saw that can stand up to being dropped-oops- and still keep rolling. The only reason I didn't give it the 5 star rating is I had a problem with the battery. And apparently, Milwaukee requires the service centers to send the battery back before replacing them. Bad move on their part. Being without a battery for 2-3 weeks while waiting on a replacement is not good business. The battery was only 1 month old. Fortunately, this saw came in a kit, and I had a backup. And it recharges very quickly so it was just more of an annoyance.
All in all, a great saw and I would buy another one!

This is the King ...
This saw never runs out of power, cuts through thick stubborn boards like butter. Fast recharge time, long life batteries, first rate saw, first rate company.
I would recommend this to the most skilled carpenter to the do it your selfer, this saw does it all with power to spare.
Well worth every penny i paid for it ...

This is a good saw for light cutting chores such as slicing off a piece of 2 by 4, or thin plywood, 1/4", or 1/8" thick materials such as wipe-off marker white-board. This is not a heavy duty tool, but can be used with confidence for light duty precision cutting of lighter materials. Buy an assortment pack of blades to increase versatility.

I was a little uncertain about buying this saw at first. I didn't think that a cordless saw was going to work as well as my old faithful corded one. Boy, was I wrong! I guess it is the 28 volts, but this saw tears through pressure treated 2x material as well as decking. When in use, I never notice that it is not corded -- it is that powerful.
I have also used it to cut south-american decking, which is hard as a rock. It does fine there too.
Th only downside is the allen wrench for changing blades seems like it would be easy to lose, so I keep it in the box not in the handle slot.
Balance is good, and I prefer the left hand blade so I can see more of what I am doing. With two batteries and the fast charger, I am never w/o a juiced-up saw.
No problems so far, and anything that does happen will be covered by the 5 year warranty. Very pleased with my purchase!

I am remodelling my home from the RIta forgotten Hurricaine. The money we got from the insurance does not cover contract worker so I am doing it myself.
I am a 60 year old man with a full time job, the saw that I received from my loving wife makes the rpair of the rooms fantastic. The saw cuts my time in half
and I enjoy doing the work. It makes my cutting out the electrical sockets in the wall easier then I could every dream. Everyone should own one of these saws.

milwaukee cordless saw
I have had this saw almost a year and used it a lot. It's light weight makes it easy to use all day long. It has great power and battery life, and no extension cords or generator to deal with.A great product. My only problem was waiting so long to buy it.

Good for many applications
I have had this saw for about a year.
It's battery power and cutting is unbelievable.
It is used severalt times a week on aluminum, steel and most anything else that comes up.
It is great for working on boats and farm applications where there is no line power.
It is it's also great not to have to drag out hoses and a torch when working with iron.
I highly recommend the tool.

Supplied Battery Charger is inadequate
If the battery(s) are allowed to run down past a certain point the supplied charger does not recognize the battery and refuses to charge it (them). The only way I can get the charger to work is to place a partial charge on the battery from another source and raise the battery voltage above about 2 volts, then the charger will work properly. I have always had a great deal of respect for Milwaukee tools and own quite a few, but I am VERY disappointed in the design of the charger supplied with this saw. Other than the battery, the saw works great.
