Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheCoolHandLuke Really great little saw
Good balance, lightweight and easy to control. Bought to trim doors and for small jobs, then found myself ripping 3/4" hardwood and framing with it. Battery life is quite good with large batteries, about same run time as with my m18 hackzall or 1/2" hammer drill. Much nicer than my "yellow" 18v and it's rapid battery failure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Very strong tool!
Strong tool with powerful battery. The electronic brake is a wonderful safety feature. So far it has held up to the claims on the description. I will buy Milwaukee again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JAM Great Saw!
I purchased this saw for daily home remodeling and interior/exterior repairs. Great product as always. The rafter hook is nice but I'd rather have a belt hook. My corded circular saws rarely leave the truck anymore. I only use the 4.0 batteries since it burns through the smaller ones pretty quick. I never have any issues since I have several batteries and usually break out a corded saw for all day cutting. My favorite saw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MilwaukFan Everything you need in, all in one package
I am a huge fan of Milwaukee cordless tools. Their M18 line consistently delivers quality workmanship and batteries with enough juice to be seriously considered as alternatives to corded models.
The 2630 circular saw is no exception.
The saw itself is top quality, allowing you to make easy, accurate adjustments for cut depth, bevel, etc. The solid aluminum base is very nice, and the markings are accurate and easy to read. The electric brake is also a very nice feature, and the ambidextrious thumb safety is easy to manipulate.
The whole package is a very good value, and is priced at a discount of approximately 20% as compared with what you would pay if you bought each item individually from HD. This does not take into consideration the value of the carry bag or 24T saw blade.
Right out of the box, I replaced the blade with the 40T Freud that HD carries, to make for cleaner edges on plywood, which is what I've used this saw for so far. So far so good in that regard, as I have ripped dozens of feet of plywood up to 3/4" without a hitch. The second battery, as with any cordless tool, is a huge asset and a necessary item to have on hand IMO.
**Included in the kit that HD sent me was a rip fence, which is not part of the description. Milwaukee customer service even told me it wasn't included in this kit. The fence fits snugly into the saw, and it's markings are accurate.
So overall, I am hugely satisfied with my purchase. If you can afford it, I would recommend shelling out the extra money for this kit upfront, versus piecemealing everything together as you go along. It only hurts once to buy, and you won't be disappointed in your decision.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dutch One of the best yet
I have owned many different battery powered tools, including 2 circular saws. In 35 years of construction work, I have used almost every brand at one time or another. Strong battery, plenty of power. From cutting a 2x10 to PVC, this is an awesome tool. I highly recommend Milwaukee tools...period. Any power tool I replace is replaced with a Milwaukee. In a time where all but a few companies are cheapening their tools, this company is striving to be the best.

I was slightly surprised about how well this saw works. It is light, easy to handle, surprisingly powerful, packed with simple easy to use features, and has enough battery power to make it a very useful thing.
