      Q:The description says “M18 18V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw (Tool-Only)”, but the answer from Milwaukee Tool social says it is not brushless, so which is correct? Assuming Milwaukee knows it’s own tools, Home Depot should correct.

      A Beast of its own.
      This tool is like a charm, it’s more than a beast, with the crazy amount of power, you get the job done. Would definitely recommend it to all contractors out there. I would never want to buy another one to replace it. When you add the battery it’s like a different story that you’re ur telling, also it’s very light eight compare to my older one, and it’s, gotta say this again, a BEAST!!!!!!!!

        Very happy with performance. And doesn't eat batteries as I expected it would. I've had the same battery in it all day and made over a hundred cuts. High quality. Feels good in my hand. Doesn't feel like junk. Very well built and it's brushless. Can't beat it. And I have used Ridgid and DeWalt and neither one even compare to this Milwaukee. Top of the line!

        Great in the hands, powerful
        Got this as a "free" tool after buying an expensive batteries and charger kit. This saw is powerful and was able to cut through 2x4s and stacked 5/8" OSB boards with ease. It cuts smoothly and I have had no hang ups even when restarting a cut when stopping mid cut. It is fairly light even with the battery and is comfortable to use long term. Raptor hook works well although I wish it allowed for more hooking positions. Electronic break works excellent and almost immediately stops the blade from spinning after releasing the triggers. Only time will tell how long it will last. Comes with a metal blade guard which is nice so you won't have any cracked blade guards down the line but at the same time it may damage work surfaces when placing this down. Great rubberized grips and feels nice and secure in the hands. You will feel in control grabbing this thing which is great when dealing with potential kickback. Downsides, it has no positive stops for common angles when cutting bevels so you could be making cuts with slight angle deviations. Measurement numbers are also slightly hard to read since they are engraved in the metal (aluminum I think) but at the same time won't be easily rubbed off. I am also right handed so I prefer the blade on the left side but I'm getting used to right side blade of this saw. The dust extraction is quite good as it will spray it all out of the port and away from you, however, this does not come with a shop vac hookup in the box. You will have to buy that adapter separate which will add to the cost of an already expensive 7 1/4" saw. At the MSRP value of the saw, it definitely has the Milwaukee tax on it but if you just want a powerful saw that cuts well and provides great control, this is a good choice.

          Great Circular saw
          I used this to help fix my fence recently. It is a great saw and never seems to drain the battery.

            depth adjuster loose after two weeks of owning
            My complaint is about the depth adjusting knob. It became loose after two weeks of owning the saw. Unlike Ridgid, it is not repairable unless you take off the fence and other things. I purchased Milwaukee hoping it would be an upgrade from Ridgid, but im disapointed, perhaps it is aside from this issue, but I’m not giving them the benefit, especially for $50 more than the Ridgid. I will return the saw and go back to Ridgid! Keep in mind that I bought it to replace a 6 1/2 Ridgid I purchased in 2013 and still works but wanted a 7.1/4 brushless.
