            Don't like compressors
            I use this once in a while so I don't need the compressor version which is WAY lighter than this. This can get old real quickly, especially if working on a ladder but if you need it for a quick job, it's way better than setting up a compressor and hose.

              I came, I Saw, I bought.
              Again, like I stated in my review of Milwaukee's M18 High Output XC8.0 battery, watch u-tube. There are plenty of reputable companies and reviewers doing good honest tests and demonstrations of these tools and batteries. That is how I decided to purchase these tools along with already having Milwaukee's 2494-22 Combo Kit which consists of a 2407-20 M12 3/8" Drill/Driver and a 2462-20 M12 1/4" Hex Impact. This combo kit has performed flawlessly beside my Porter Cable 20v max tools and that is why when I had the chance to buy some of Milwaukee's heavy iron, I did. I do not expect anything less from this 7-1/4" full size Rear Handle Circular Saw with the High Output XC8.0 Battery powering it.

              One of my top 3 go-to brands. If I did this daily, I'd prob stick to one, and it'd be this, but I only property management stuff on the side so I've acquired a few different brands over the years. This is a great tool made by one of the best companies out there. I still have Milwaukee products from 1998(Hammer drill) that still works. Love the way it shoots and I love how convenient it is. A compressor sound bothers me so this eliminates that entirely. I rarely get any jams but if I do, it's pretty quick to clear. Having a needle nose plier in your tool belt can help sometimes

                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.

                Don’t buy into the hype!
                Very disappointed would not sink a 2-3/8” to nail on sheathing. Sunk maybe 5 out 50, the rest were 1/4 to 1/2” from being set. I do not understand the hype on YouTube compared to my experience right out of the box. Terrible and unacceptable.

                  The Best Nailer In The Market!!
                  I cant say enough about this 21 degreen framing nailer. Milwaukee hit a grand slam with this one. I have been using my HO 3.0ah battery and its last me all day sheeting. Its only down side is it gets heavy after many hours and it only holds one sleeve of nails. Besides that, its a top 5 must have tool.
