Can i use a 6.0 battery I have with the 12in cordless Milter Saw?

Asked by GT March 19, 2021
2
Answers

Hello! You can use any M18 battery with any M18 product. However, the larger amp hour will typically result in longer run times.

What do you get in the Box? and what can you add to it later on?

Asked by GT March 19, 2021
2
Answers

The saw comes mostly assembled. Also included in the tool only box are the side handles, dust collection bag, and paperwork.

Does it come with a blade and bag? i know it does not come with a battery.

Great saw!
Great saw!
by Geo
Absolute Trash
For the price I would expext a solid well designed stand. The fold out design is good and quick but the extensions are complete trash. They are so flimsy and made of light gauge metal and held on by a little bitty nut. Anything more than a 2x4 will likely bend the stops and when you put in away for storage it rests the flimsy extensions. Dont buy it. You will be dissapointed. And i am dissapointed that there are people giving 5 stars! WHY! Its not remotely deserving. Maybe if all you want to cut is pieces of 12” trim board! Shame!!!!

A significant flaw in mine.
For the most part, I like this saw and what milwaukee is doing. I think for a DIYer it would be fine. That being said, as a pro, this saw doesn't do it. The weight is great and the saw is easy to adjust and tune. the deal breaker is that the table isn't even all the way across. The center of the table sits low and cocked to the side making detailed finish work impossible. Lightweight, decent dust collection, good runtime. Imperfect for a finish carpenter.

Not smooth, yellowish colors in the LED light and crap customers service
I bought this saw and it doesn’t sound smooth at all. Sorta has random grinding noises but it cut fine. Also, the LED light has blobs of yellow color in it. Called Milwaukee not once, but twice and sent pics too. Never heard back so I returned the saw. Expected much better for the astronomical price they charge!

I got the M18 Fuel 12" Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw to replace a shop saw and be able to take it and set it up in my shop trailer for remote work. Using a 12.0 High Output Battery, I have yet to discharge more than half the battery in a single day cutting dozens of 2x4s and 2x6s. This saw operates like a corded saw without the cord. It never hesitated or slowed during any cut.The shadow line is an excellent replacement to a laser line since I never have to worry if the laser is in alignment or not. It's a little hard to see in really bright sunshine, but it doesn't slow me down since I just have to bring the blade closer to the material.Blade change out is easy and the little features on the saw go unnoticed until you use them such as the 22.5 & 33.9 integrated bevel stops.The saw is not that heavy to carry around. It is solid and is not light as a feather, but it's nowhere near as heavy/bulky as any of the corded miter saws I have owned. It has integrated handles if you are going to be moving it around a lot. You can also opt to not use them and slide this baby into your miter saw bench in your shop. There is also a carry handle on top of the saw that I have not seen in other saws.Using the dust collection bag worked far better than I would have thought. Hooking a vacuum up to it is easy, as well.There is a safety switch on the handle that you have slide/flip that is a little awkward at first when you aren't used to it being there, but it didn't take long for my hand to being able to reach in and flip & grip pretty smoothly.There are no disappointments with this saw. From building furniture to framing walls, this saw has been great to use. I really enjoy using it over all other top-brand miter saws I have owned

Ordered 12” M18 Fuel HD but received -20 model instead of -21
Just unboxed this beast. Amazingly lighter than my 17 year old corded Dewalt miter saw without the battery. Unfortunately it was too big for the newly purchased Bora Miter Saw cube table storage unit. No matter how hard I tried it just would’nt fit. So i swapped with the 17 year old fold up portable miter saw stand. Perfect fit with some minor adjustments. Assembled the remaining hardware, installed 12” blade (really tight fit), put the massive battery on and cranked it up. Very super bright LED light popped on and tested the compound slide - smooth and exceptionally easy. Almost too easy. Like very much that i can lock and track its whereabouts and battery status. Quality quality quality!

Hands down too miter saw I've ever owned. Right out of the box accurate cuts without making any adjustments to the hard stops on the bevel or miter angles. Shadow line for blade cut path is spot on and extremely visible/accurate. I've been running it with a 9.0 battery and honestly have no issues or power loss cutting 4x6 pressure treated lumber. If you were blindfolded you would have no idea you were running a cordless saw, it's that incredible. Completely worth every penny and would recommend it to all homeowners DIY-ers and professionals/contractors!

Loved everything about it, except the turn knobs to release the slide rails. Thought they could have made a lever type. All and all, my DeWalt saw stand has been sitting in back of my garage ever since. Using Milwaukee stand for my everyday stuff now. Much easier to transport around
