NO and add to that the fact that it is dramatically underpowered. Would I buy again? Maybe not. It's a nice saw for plywood perhaps but not for 2x4's

Sorry, don't know of an edge guide like that to fit your circular saw. I have, however, a long rip guide which simply clamps onto the work (up to 48" wide). This has enabled me to make the kind of cuts that I think you are referring to. Being adjustable (and inexpensive) it has enabled me to do field work, away from the table saw. Hope this helps.

Great design for my lefty self
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
Haven’t gotten to use on a job just yet. I purchased to use around the house. I am a DIY person and love this saw so far. I have only tested it out. The blade it comes with isn’t bad but definitely went out and got some other ones for different applications (Diablo blades online). Tested it out and it rips like butter baby. Love this thing. Looking for stuff to cut!!!

good for 2x dimensional wood, not for 3/4 plywood rips
Pros and Cons: Pros: + very lightweight and compact for portability/transporting/storage + effective run time on 2x dimensional cross cuts Cons: - limited in-stock blade availability - no laser sight / odd sight lines (my opinion) - not appropriate for 3/4 hardwood plywood (what I purchased this for) - questionable accuracy for bevel cuts I purchased this mostly to rip down 4x8x3/4 plywood, and I should have spent the extra $$$ on either an M18 or corded circ saw. It just does not have the power to make my cuts reliably, even with the 6.0 EC M12 battery. Made it through 1 rip (with difficulty) before the battery gave out. I do appreciate the small size and easy to transport for outdoor framing jobs, or I would imagine if you had to carry it in awkward places (roofing, attic, etc). It performs well for making 2x framing cross cuts, 1/2" OSB rips, etc. It does have a place for particular jobs, just not for my primary intent (3/4 plywood rips).

Yes recommend
I do recommend this product. I’m a DYI guy and with this light weight saw it’s easy handling. Just finished my fence by cutting 2x4 and pickets it was fast and easy. Recommend a longer battery like a 4.0 ah or higher.

Very nice saw. I really like the light weight and ease of use. This saw has plenty of power and will still cut a 2x4. I build furniture and this saw makes cutting large pieces of 1by lumber very easy. I do like having the blade on the left side. It does take some time to get used to being so lightweight. When cutting without a guide you need to pay attention since the saw will move and cut off your line very easy if you twist it at all.

Light Weight and Powerful
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
I wanted a light weight, battery operated, circular saw and drill to replace my aging corded circular saw and battery operated drill. I selected Milwaukee's 12 volt family of tools over 18 volt systems because of their light weight and compact size. I have not been disappointed with my choice. The M12 FUEL 5-3/8" Circular Saw with a 6 amp hour battery will run all day for my DYI projects. In fact, I used it to build a deck for my daughter and son-in-law and had no issues with it. It cut through 2 X lumber with ease.

Light Weight, but Powerful
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
I bought this saw to cut down my older entertainment center. It was light weight and did the job without effort. Being a righty, it was odd using a saw completely opposite from what I was use to, but the weight helped me stay on course. Very happy with the results. Now I only have to add paint to complete the reworking of my old entertainment center. It was lowered 22"..
