This saw will cut stainless steel food grade strut. The problem is depending on the material you’ll have to change blades more often. Secondly, the diameter of the pipe 4” is pushing it.
I would either return it or contact Milwaukee. Mine works great and I would be lost without it. I can make 4 cuts through railroad track with mine on one 5.0 battery. Great saw!
If you’re sure you have the blade installed correctly, try tilting the saw to the right so the blade is true vertical. I have to hold mine that way to compensate for the offset built in.
No, it takes the 44 7/8 one
The Blade size is marked on the box i just know its the big one.
Just bought and received mine, same as yours. Too bad that we weren't given that information before purchase huh? I'm sure they're fine, I just feel that the saw is a bit less durable now because plastic is going to get damaged a lot quicker than metal. Out of curiosity, searching the internet on this has ended up with no additional information. Milwaukee should have at least included so technical information with the saw on why there is a deviation with materials used as none of the websites even show plastic wheels are used now. Also notice no one responded to your question from July 4th 2020 which is sad.
No, you should not need one.
The saw has a brake on it. As soon as you let go of the trigger, the blade immediately stops. All Milwaukee tools do not have a locking trigger to keep the tool running, you have to keep pressure on the trigger and one released, the tool brakes.
Squeeze the 2 red tabs, pull out dead battery, slide in fresh battery. 6 seconds.
No portable Milwaukee tool has a trigger lock.
