Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by works well Arrived in four days! works well is cheaper than the Mikita and has a slightly deeper cut. good metal box. We are using it to cut 8x10 so takes two cuts, but nothing handheld out there to do it in one pass. May 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good saw I got this for making short work of hard dry tree branches and upper trunks. I've got about 40 eucalyptus trees that I've slowly been bringing down to a manageable size, and in some cases, just removing. I'm working solo in short blocks of time, so I can't do all the cut and trim at once. A lot of material get cut down then dries on the ground to be dealt with later. I got tired of burning up chain saw chains on the hard dry wood so I took a chance on this as a solution. So far it's working great. I can cut 8" - 10" lengths from a dry cleaned 30' long branch in a matter of minutes, with very little setup time or cleanup time. Most are under 12" diameter on the bottom end and down to a 2"- 4" on the small end, and pretty straight. This saw is a little heavy but otherwise perfect for the task. Since I usually only have small blocks of time to work in, I'm very happy to get more done in less time. I use a 50' 12/3 contractor extension which seems to work just fine. All but the leaves and smallest (mow-able) twigs are cut down to fireplace size and burned in the winter. August 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Portable table saw! Greatest big circ. saw. Front attachment of shoe/base came misassembled, line of cut was off 1/8"....simple fix, the lock washer goes under the nut, not in the area between the "yoke" and the magnesium saw body attachment extrusion, which is a mistake. I put a brass washer in place of the previous lock washer area and put a new lock washer under the it cuts 100% straight, cabinet making quality cuts. Even the Milwaukee parts diagram shows the lock washer under the nut. The design is perfect, just a tired or poorly trained worker in a Chinese respect and sympathy, the rest of the assembly is flawless, designed to be nail-tough, for life. The saw motor is essentially the same as a table saws, 5200 rpm, 3.1 HP. The supplied blade is a framing blade, not thin kerf, but not quite 1\8". It cuts very well, but is definetly a framing blade. Plan on at least a Diablo 40t level blade for "tricky" making redwood lumber into beveled picture frames for a picket fence. And consider 10" blades for economy, selection and this; eliminating the 1\4" blade diameter leaves 1/16" poking out of 4X material, dunno physics but faster cuts? Due to reduced mass? Plus perfect cut depth, no adjust 4 X saw weighs 17.8 lbs. (Scale and Website) w/o blade. Factory blade is just over 2 lbs. Another reason to go thin kerf. Base is Bomb-proof, No frilly web- like forged piece, like the Makita. A full 1/4" solid aluminum plate, brushed. The saw is not super loud, but makes a nice tone. The brake stops the blade so fast the saw almost lurches. I have not timed the brake, guesstimation...under 1 second, dead still blade. Just release the trigger. Compared to the Makita... Cuts faster. I got my hands on a big "Mak" at another store and cut 4X6 with it. Slow, but nice and straight. I read other reviews complaining of the washer misassembly, and I was prepared to fine tune the Milwaukee, because adjusted, it beats all other competitors in the same price range. Makita's bevel is 45° vs. Milwaukee- 60°. Makita has aluminum attachments, steel for Milwaukee...1/4" steel....cheaper, and way stronger in a fall, will never crack. The Makita's motor is slower, I think 4800 rpm. I read that other users of the Milwaukee have under AWG'd extension cords and burned out the motor. I constructed a 50ft, 6 AWG cord, and the saw rips fast and easy with the Diablo 40t. If you buy this saw, be serious. If you can't put the washer in, you probably should not handle big electric cutters! Get a 12 gauge extension cord up to 50', 8 gauge to 75'. I build custom fences and transport my self and saw with a bicycle and trailer, hence the portable table saw title above. It is a worthy investment. Super happy! February 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A man,s saw Saw has plenty of power, good straight cuts and not too heavy. Wish I had bought it earlier. June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality for a madie in China product I have used the saw for cutting 8 inch concrete blocks, and it has work flawlessly after cutting over 45 blocks. Has a long power cord, and comes in a well made steel tool box. Has plenty of power to cut thru thick materials. This is a heavy duty well made saw for a Chinese product. August 14, 2012
