My store doesn't carry the 4.0 battery. Can I use any M12 battery. Is the 6.0 too much? I have 4 of the smaller ones.

M12 FUEL 12-Volt 3 in. Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Cut Off Saw (Tool-Only) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 295.

This GEM surely is one heck of a handy tool to have for a DIY'er! I love the fact that its not a bulky piece of equipment that takes up a lot of space or is to heavy. The size of it is small but don't let that fool you. It has pure power behind it and as you can see in my video the wheel never slowed down or dragged as a result of what I was cutting. It went through aluminum and floor tile with ease. There was minimal effort and the saw did most of the work nice and steady. The battery held up strong and didn't even flinch. When cutting, the saw stayed nice and steady! It comes with a nice set of different blades and a guide attachment with a vacuum connecting point. A handy charger and M12 battery is included in the bag in which there is plenty of room for any additional miscellaneous equipment that you may need. Milwaukee never disappoints! In my opinion they are the front runners when it comes to savvy tools such as this cordless saw. Two thumbs up here guys!

The 4 AH battery provides tons of run time. I fully charged it and ran it at full speed and it lasted over an hour. The dust shroud/guide is super easy to put on and remove, It just simple clicks in. I was able to cut through all different types of materials with ease. The ability to change the direction of the blade is revolutionary and comes in handy when you want to cut a certain way but can't turn the tool around. The bag is very heavy duty and the zipper seams very sturdy and has plenty of room for other tools or more batteries. It's so small that it will easily fit is stud cavities and all sorts of places! The battery level indicator on the tool works great and gives you a quick idea of your battery life. The light is very bright and is in a good spot to light what you are cutting. Overall I love the tool and can see using it a lot to make a wide variety of cutting jobs easier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from seeds program let me start off by saying I'm a big Milwaukee supporter being that I'm a contractor. over the years I've switched from DeWalt to Milwaukee because Milwaukee's tools just seem to be much better. that's being said I wouldn't buy this tool because just by looking at it I can tell it's underpowered for its use. the main point I want to make are the seeds program reviews not one of them is ever a bad review for any tool. these people are getting free tools to review and my mind if they leave a bad review they stop getting free tools. I've looked at thousands of reviews and it's quite obvious that the seed program reviewers are very biased so I would not trust them at all. Milwaukee should be a little bit ashamed should be giving free tools away based on the fact you're going to leave a good review for every tool which we all know is nonsense.

I think it could be improved- first off they really need to have replacement blades available (none at this time) also it should be highly stressed that the M12 lithium xc battery should be used as the M12 lithium battery only lasted for roughly 10 minutes when making small cuts in wood plank 1/4 inch thick- very frustrating to get my cuts finished before the battery died and needed recharging Saw is nice size easy to handle and makes great cuts when in use. I would rate it Much higher if it came with at least one Lithium XC battery and if I knew when or if replacement blades were going to be available at Home Depot

After watching the video I thought this would have more power than it does, I am used to air powered cut offs. I cut off two sections of exhaust pipe and had to go slow with it,tool stops when even minimal pressure is applied to it, used most of the 4.0 battery up with those two cuts. It is very conveniant but only good for light duty use. I will keep it for home use,maybe the next generation will be geared toward a commercial user.

I love the Power, the Ease of use and especially the straight on cut approach as opposed to the sideways cut approach used on most Die Grinders and Cutoff Tools (Air Powered) Sure makes my life easier when I don't have to fire up the Air Compressor and Drag the Hose out and haul it around while I'm working.

It's really not much better than a dremel. This really rears it's head if you are working at a awkward angle where slight binding is common.
