Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by signgirl Pleasantly surprised
I am a woman who owns and operates a sign shop by myself.
I wanted a saw that was safe, easy to use and had decent accuracy. I cut a variety of materials.... wood, plastics, metal composites, foams, etc, and this saw has never let me down. It was easy to assemble and I get within 1/16" of accuracy with this saw until I start cutting pieces smaller than 10" x 10" then it's off a bit more, however, I have never tried to fine tune for better because I usually cut small pieces on my router.
I have owned this saw for a year so far and no issues.
Price was great too. A comparable panel saw brand that is commonly used in the sign industry would have cost me an additional $1000.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SignGuy Don't be fooled by the Milwaukee name, poor quality product!
Was surprised by the poor quality and lack of parts included with it. Everything you need to use this in your business needs to be added to it. No hoses or dust collection included. No way to move it in the shop. Uses plastic rings on a U bolt to secure the saw motor to the pipes it travels on. Very loose right out the box and does not make straight cuts as there were broken rings during shipping. Used it less than 72 hours in the first 6 weeks due to issues. Found out that Milwaukee doesn't do repairs to them as per their website. After many many calls to Home Depot they agreed to switch it for the other brand they sell. Wish I would have looked at that one first. Came complete out of the wooden crate and cut straight from day one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QualityRoofer Excellent Panel Saw
This was purchased to use on a large job we just recently completed. With the exception of needing to install the appropriate blade according to what type of material we were cutting, the saw worked flawlessly and without any problems. It is in our shop and will be used on upcoming projects.

I purchased the panel saw and was amazed with its accuracy. With a few minor adjustments the saw cut perfectly. All the parts were there and everything went together in a short period of time!
I would reccomend this saw to anyone who has limited space and wants a quality saw! I t is well worth the money spent!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BillR Good saw for the price
I'm a cabinet maker who has worked in shops with 50K panel saws. When I lost my job in Jan, 2008 I started my own shop. Tool cost was an issue. The Milwaukee saw takes some practice to use accurately but sheet goods can be cut a tad over size and cut to size on the table saw for precision. It's half the price of a Safety Speed Cut Saw and a very good value. When my shop is ready, I'll buy a better saw... and keep the Milwaukee to cut P - lam on....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimColaSC Bought this saw last year and it's great. Easy to get running after delivery, and very accurate. I did buy the extension arms and wheels just as a convenience but it's perfect as is.
