This is the cordless worm drive and out performs the regular saw by 10 fold in my personal experience and I have used both. Plus the fit and frame and function of using a corded worm drive for so many years and they the first cordless saw your making adjustments and then this bad boy hits the market I run the HO 8 battery and have been cutting for the past 3 days and just barely had to put the battery on the charger.

Besides rear handle and left side blade, how else is this saw different from the stanard milwaukee M18 circular saw?

Asked by Kerf October 23, 2020
2
Answers

That is is. For people that have used worm drive saws fir so many years the standard saw is very difficult to switch gears back too. That’s why they made this saw and incorporated the worm drive features

Is it 'brushless' ?

VFL, Yes this is the brushless model and it is a great saw and works amazing. I have not needed to drag cords around for quiet a while. You will love it. The other saws are great too it just when you have used a worm drive for some many years it hard cutting with the blade in the right anymore.

This saw cuts very fast and true. It is heavy but I think it helps to keep the cutting straight. Very easy to set the blade depth and angle.

Great saw. Like most Milwaukee tools, it feels heavy initially but after using it for while, it does not bother me. I used this on several projects, to cut my 2x and plywood. Worked like a charm. No problems while using it. Adjusting the depth was easy and simple. My only issue is the handle, the grip is not that comfy.l, feels stiff
by SmokedNeckbones
Excellent saw
I’ve been using this saw to build home projects such as chests and shelving and other stuff. It has the power to cut through anything even with the 5.0 battery. I recently put an 8.0 HO and the run time is basically endless. I credibly visibility and control with the rear handle and blade left design. I have fairly little circ saw experience but I took to this thing immediately. Great choice for anyone and you can’t go wrong. I use Milwaukee tools at my main job in the oil and gas industry and the performance is unmatched
by Johnny2007
Easy to Control
I love using this circular saw! It is built well and is easy to control. I have cut super straight lines without the use of a guide. It also works great with rip-guides, etc. The rear-handle feels more natural and allows me to guide saw better. If you are trying to move quickly, this saw can handle it. Soft or Hard plywood is no match for this saw. The dust port attachments cuts down on the dust but only by a little more than half when used with a vacuum. The dust does stay away from your cut line so you can see it the whole time. This is my go-to saw that I am always pulling off the shelf over the others. I plan on getting at least one more so I am can use this particular saw on multiple applications without blade changes slowing me down. I highly recommend this circular saw.
by BearBird Workshop
7 1/4 circular rear handle saw
This saw is absolutely amazing! Comfortable and easy to use with all the power of a corded saw. I make rip cuts all day on 2x6 and never fully depleted the 12amp battery. All my co-workers are sold on this saw and going to purchase the same model. You won’t be disappointed with the performance and reliability.
by MattayoT
The best worm drive style saw I've used!!!
I was never a fan of direct drive saws(blade on the right side). It was hard for me to see my line and make a cut so I always leaned towards the left line of sight or worm drive saws, even though I'm right handed. I've been waiting for Milwaukee to release a worm drive style saw and I'm very glad they did. This saw is better than my corded worm drive skill saw. I enjoy the ability to just grab the saw and go, no need to worry about a drop cord. Also I'm very surprised on how quiet this saw is. Even my wife will run this saw and enjoys using it and she's not very fond of saws. I think Milwaukee hit it out of the park with this 7 1/4 rear handle circ saw.
by Hribik
A nice addition to the Milwaukee cordless line-up.
This saw is a blast to use. I use it mainly to trim the ends of rough cut lumber cut from hardwood logs on my band saw mill. 8/4" rough cut oak is no problem. With the 12ah battery it weighs right around 12 lbs. so for best control it really is a two handed saw.

Very happy with this circular saw. Upgraded from a corded DeWalt and I can't feel any loss in power. I like having the motor on the right side, and being able to push from the back and top. I've only used it to trim solid wood doors, but you can imagine that's a good test, as it required cuts more than 2 meters long. Having the wrench built-in is a big plus. Dust collection works well, even with an undersized vacuum hose, because the saw's vacuum port has two sections, it plugs and seals well. The framing blade worked surprisingly well and left good cuts, even across the grain. Nevertheless, I swapped to an Avanti 60T blade to get better cuts.

I’ve had my rear handle saw since it came out. It is expensive but the amount of time I’ve saved from not using extension cords makes up for it. I love it and use it everyday. The one hassle is the sawdust port. It will shoot it all over you. I’ve put either painters tape or tyvek tape over it and it really helps. That would be an improvement that would interest me. Other than that, it’s a beast!

I will definitely buy another one or two!
It’s my daily saw framing. It rips lvl with ease, no issues cutting psl, and no problems getting through a day with the 12ah battery!
