    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Adan! The cut off saw delivers fast and accurate cutting performance in a wide range of materials. The carbide abrasive wheel is recommended for cutting drywall, fiber cement, and plastic. The abrasive cut-off wheel is for cutting steel, stainless steel, and non ferrous materials. The diamond abrasive wheel is for use on tile and ceramics! - Milwaukee Tool Social Team

          The item functions great for about 1-2 minutes. Then it bogs to a miserable creep. 5 - 6 batteries later just to produce (2) 2x3 aluminum parts. Over heating perhaps a hand full of times. Otherwise cute tool

          Tool Great, Battery Connector Terrible
          I've used this cutoff saw for more than 2 years. It's a great little tool that works very well on sheet metal, tiles and thin masonry. My only gripe is, and it's a big one, is the design of the release mechanism to remove the battery case from the tool's handle. Pinching 2 stiff plastic cutouts on the battery case, see photos, should move locking tabs inside the tool handle. It's a poorly-designed setup that requires a lot of pinching force, and it often fails.

            Almost great
            First let me start off by saying I'm a huge fan of Milwaukee M18 fuel tools. Being that I'm only going to be using this to cut drywall, M12 platform was not a bad option. When I attempted to install my first blade, I realized after removing the bolt, the arbor plate had to be pried off. This was due to the arbor end, being mushroomed from the factory. I cleaned it up with lapping paper. After about 10 minutes, the blades would fit onto the arbor. 😐

              Jammed Up
              Tool jammed up so the blade cannot be removed. The release collar is supposed to turn freely to release the blade but it completely jammed up and now the tool is junk! Of course it is outside the warranty period cutoff.

                M12 3” circular saw
                I was debating on this little guy or the 6-1/2 saw I figured that I would get this one and I’m impressed with how small it is and powerful Milwaukee is definitely top of the line with there tools I’ll never buy anything else they have seriously done a great job with all the M12 tools small and tough as heck love it buy it

                  Not a good product
                  So I got this impact as a gift, I been using it for about two weeks and I believe it would be better than the previous M12 fuel impact with one gear, but turns out it’s not. First the bit I use to drill in screw the housing unit to be exact gets extremely hot. Second after a couple of screws, the battery is almost compare to my other impacts use. And finally the gears take some time to kick in. I won’t be buying this new surge types anymore.

                    If you are considering an impact driver, this hydraulic version from Milwaukee should be at the top of your list. This kit includes a soft side bag, the 12 volt lithium ion brushless hydraulic surge 1/4 inch impact driver, two 2.0Ah batteries and a charger. The impact driver is smaller than most comparable models and includes an LED light as well as a belt clip. The hydraulic surge design makes it extremely quiet (claim is 2x quieter) compared to non-hydraulic models yet it functions just as well. The bit lock mechanism allows bits to be inserted and locked in without touching the collar. The model features four drives modes: 1 – 0-1,100 RPM / 0-950 IPM 2 – 0-2,200 RPM / 0-2,200 IPM 3 – 0-3,200 RPM / 0-3,400 IPM 4 – Self tapping sheet metal screw mode The self tapping sheet metal screw mode ensures the tool stops when the screw is full seated thus preventing stripping, breakage and work surface damage. The case has hook and loop fasteners as well as elastic fasteners to keep the various parts in place and protected. I tested the product by driving 3-1/2 inch Torx drive deck screws into 4x4 lumber. The first three settings were all able to drive the deck screws fully into the lumber. Based on RPM values, setting 1 was slow and setting 3 was fast with setting two in the middle. Using setting four in a non-designed situation of deck screw into lumber, I was able to observe how the function works. Essentially, when the tool detects increased torque/resistance it pauses for a brief moment then impacts very briefly to complete tightening then stops completely. If you have never owned an impact driver, they are far better for driving screws and lag bolts than a standard drill motor and help prevent stripping of the screw head. This particular model is great for the DIY crowd and professionals. It works better in tight spaces due to its smaller size but still has plenty of power to get the job done.

                    This small 1/4" driver from Milwaukee is a great tool. I have been using it primarily as a driver in my woodshop for torx head and standard screws. It is very comfortable to hold, has plenty of power and is small enough to fit in pretty much anywhere you need to use it. I have several different drivers from Milwaukee and this one is just as good as the rest. This kit comes with a bag, charger and (2) batteries.
