I see this is an old question, but Im going to answer it anyway in the hopes that i can deter someone else from wasting $700. This Milwaukee saw is a pile of you know what. If you're cutting pre-stained wood with this thing good luck. The blade wobble is horrendous and you get a different angle of cut every time without needing to adjust the fence

Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
I bought this saw two years ago big Milwaukee too user but highly disappointed only use it for personal home use while doing some crown molding in my house I realize the blade was breaking and making a grinding sound sent it to the Milwaukee drop off location one month later saw came back with the problem looks like they used something to pry the handle open look below black section in photo and other places on the saw and looks like there is glue on the handle which wasn’t there before highly sad and heart broken about this

Its a nice saw, mechanically it works great, real accurate. The angle meter didn't work on the first one or the second one, sent the 2nd one back. I like the saw so I will keep it, just have to send it into Milwaukee tool repair to fix the display.

Cuts straight
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Ok saw. It cuts straight, but simple annoyances haven't been addressed. Blade lock pin for lower position (if you're not chopping) is way too small. The pin to lock the forward/backward movement is also too small. Product needs just a little more engineering... Finally, the safety mechanism at trigger was flimsy and fell off on first day of use. It does cut straight though...

Not bad, Not Great
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
The saw itself seems fairly powerful and accurate but the digital gauge is already broken! Parts of the display dont work, so I cant read the numbers. My workshop is full of milwaukee tools, and this is my first bad experience. Crest fallen.

First one arrived with defective LCD readout. Home Depot made for an easy exchange. Something to be said for buying from a store with a brick and mortar presence. Regarding some of the previous complaints - a clamp comes with the saw that attaches to either side of the blade, and both the right and left fences are adjustable. Saw cuts smoothly, in particular the rails are like glass. I'm a weekend do-it-your-self'er, from what I can see the saw is accurate for both miter and bevel cuts from the factory. I haven't adjusted anything but it works well for me. Very happy with the purchase, didn't see the value in bumping up to the Festool and I don't think anything else comes close. Paired with a Bosch T4B gravity rise stand and a Freud blade and it's an awesome combo.

It’s bigger than it appears. You’re better off to get the Milwaukee stand and not another brands. The others are all too small

Accurate, smooth, powerful and easy to adjust. everything as described as well as the best warranty in the business. It is heavy, so be aware of that. Home Depots customer service is great also.

This saw is a MONSTER!

This saw is Awesome. From the digital read out to the power of the motor. It is large and heavy but sets on a very stable base. The saw was squared to the table right out of the box with the blade already on. This really was a "plug'n'go" saw. The hand grip is very comfortable and user friendly with a switch easily accessible for the LED lights. I did use the saw at night, using only the LED's to light my cut line. I was impressed. The miter has built in stops that are actually true and lock in with ZERO slop. The true power test for me was a cut across grain in a piece of 3" thick 6" wide white oak. It was like I was cutting a 1x4 piece of PINE! There was no power loss at all. It was a quick smooth cut. I've used most of the brands out there, and this is definitely the BEST. The draw backs are: not a wide table, but due to the weight of the saw, anymore weight would not make this a portable saw. No hold downs and I wish the digital readout was on a switch, It is on the whenever the saw is plugged in.

We bought this saw mainly for putting in our new hardwood floors and trim. It has exceeded our expectations. I love the digital miter control, it operates smoothly, cleanly and accurately. I will using this in the future for many more projects that I thought I would not be able to construct myself.
