Customer Questions & Answers

This review on your website claims the saw is designed for left handed operation and is difficult to operate if you are right handed. Can you explain?

It's a Left Handed Saw April 21, 2012 4.0 4 out of 5 Recommended Product Customer review from This is a great saw. However, if you are right handed, it is difficult to operate. Pros: Good Design, Powerful
Asked by: Geez
The saw is not difficult for right handers at all. Those who are used to worm drive circular saws such as the venerable Skil 77, will be right at home with this saw while holding it with the right hand. The reason I have always preferred this left side blade mount type is that, as a righty, I can look right down the cut line naturally. With right side mount blade saws I can't do this without a very awkward lean over my right arm to see the cut line. A lot of leftys have liked the "sidewinders" because they typically have the right side blade arrangement so their sight line is not blocked by their arm. Rightys like the worm drives with the blade on the left for the same reason. This cordless saw, while having the classic "sidewinder" horizontally perpendicular motor/blade architecture, is orientated with the blade left, good for us rightys.

Where can I get the bolt that holds the blade on?

M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless 6-1/2 in. Cordless Circular Saw Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Same as a worm saw, left or right handed. I'm right handed, like better than traditional circular saws, have had a 8 1/4" Milwaukee since early 80's (love it), this has less power but much more convenient. Quick stop blade is sweet for safety when cutting above your head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw This cordless saw has lots of power and the battery last a long time
Date published: 2016-05-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Don't read this review, just buy it! Cuts a 2x6 plank like butter. Whisper quiet when compared to a corded 15amp saw. I wish the bare tool had a bag to hold the tool and some extra blades. Right now I am reusing the orginal box to store the tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from Great cordless saw Light weight and durable. The extended battery life is a plus. Very powerful saw I would put it against any corded saw I've used in the past. If your using it for home use/repairs 1 fully charged battery is more than enough to power through a project. Having the second battery pack is a plus if your were using on the job. Being cordless makes it very convenient to use and you don't have to sacrifice power for the convenience which makes this the perfect saw for at home or on the job. The batteries charge very fast as well, the charging station is very convenient and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Little Saw 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cordless saw! Flawless performance This is an amazing battery powered saw! I had been using C branded power tools for years and have finally started migrating towards Milwaukee last fall. This saw was my first purchase of the Milwaukee brand. I decided to splurge for the 6 1/2 in fuel saw as I planned on getting a lot of use out of it. I've been building a lot of 4 board horse fencing and my c branded saw was not quite up to the task. This Milwaukee saw cuts through true 1" x 6" fence boards with ease. The large batteries last a long time (probably 70-80 cuts of 1x6s) and they hold full power to the very end. Weight seems appropriate as it is a quality tool but it is not hard to use it all day. The rafter hook is very handy to use to store the tool while you are preparing for your next cut. Since I purchased this saw, my corded circular saw has been collecting dust as it has no advantage over this saw. I have also added the fuel impact driver and fuel hammer drill to my tool chest. I have built a couple thousand feet of 4 board fencing since purchasing this saw last December. It has held up extremely well and I look forward to many years of future service. Go out and upgrade all of your power tools to Milwaukee and you will thank yourself!
