Product Overview

  • 20 Amp commercial-grade paddle switch for durability & long life
  • Cutting accuracy to within 1/32 in.
  • 5 year limited tool warranty
Milwaukee's 8-1/4 in. Panel Saw is an ideal tool for lumber yards with its quick and easy solution to cutting up to 4 ft. x 8 ft. sections of sheet goods to size. This unique saw has a cutting accuracy to within plus or minus 1/32 of an inch and a material thickness capacity of up to 1-3/4 in. The saw also features an innovative horizontal handle for convenient on/off saw operation as well as a 20 Amp, commercial-grade paddle switch for long life. The 6480-20's frame is made from tough, electrically welded steel to ensure it won't warp or twist. The powerful 15 Amp motor is mounted on a carriage that moves horizontally with minimal effort on graphite-impregnated nylon roller bearings which require no lubrication. The saw can also be turned 90 and fixed to make vertical cuts. Horizontal and vertical scales provide quick and accurate cuts. The material being cut can be loaded from either the left or right side and gently rolls through the saw on a smooth acting roller mechanism. The Panel Saw is not recommended for ripping panels larger than 4 ft. x 8 ft. The extension kit accessory, 49-22-8108, is recommended for cutting sheet goods over 6 ft. L.

Questions & Answers

Is it necessary to get arm extenders to cut a 4ft by 8ft piece of plywood

Asked by: DJS
Yes, to do it right. If you are a "Rigger" anything is possible and you can build your own.

Milwaukee 15 Amp 8-1/4 in. Panel Saw is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 26.

The tool needs a lot of wok to calibrate. The saw plate bolt hits the back plate and you will need to correctt that. It is a manufacturing error. Not a deal breaker but annoying. For the money it is a good tool just takes more wok to set up than you might expect

However, Homedepot online cost me a loss in many sales as a result in not delivering at the intended time. My makeshift saw was dismantled 7 days after placing my order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. Highly recommended..

The saw itself is very cool, and is great for our school theatre department. My MS and HS kids use it, and it is more safe to me even than the sawstop we have. We cut a lot of plywood and Luan, so it made total sense. Setup of the actual saw itself was pretty easy. A couple of sections were a little confusing, even to me, but we figured it out. One Con of the saw setup is that at least on ours, the tape measures/guides were off and it took us a while to configure it so that it was right. There was also a minor struggle putting the cord holder in the top bars, you will need a couple of vise grips or large channel locks. We got the bottom extension wings, and those were really worth it. We also got the dust collection kit, and wheels, and I would recommend getting these accessories through CPOMilwaukee.com, they were great and by far the most competitive. I only mention this because Home Depot couldn't order any of the accessories, which I found very odd, especially since the Milwaukee corp is only 15 minutes from my store. Oh well :-) All in all, a great tool, portable, and easy to use once setup right. Hope this helps anyone looking at it. Don't think, just buy it! :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have purchased a lot of Milwaukee tools in the past but this is my last one. Pros Easy to setup... I have purchased a lot of Milwaukee tools in the past but this is my last one. Pros Easy to setup and get running (if you don't care about accurate cuts). Cons Extremely difficult to adjust the measurement guides and the manual does not match the tool. Virtually impossible to make end cuts on a large sheet of plywood. The supports aren't long enough. Counterbalance broke the first time we used it. Sent it in for service. They sent it back and had never worked on it. We sent it back again and they lost it. I have spent months contacting their customer service asking where it is. They can't find it and won't provide a replacement. Don't waste your time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee panel saw 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!
