Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

Details

Milwaukee's 8 in. Panel Saw is an ideal tool for lumber yards with its quick and easy solution to cutting up to 4 foot x 8 foot sections of sheet goods to size. This unique saw has a cutting accuracy to within plus or minus 1/32 of an inch and a material thickness capacity of up to 1-3/4 in. The saw also features an innovative horizontal handle for convenient on/off saw operation as well as a 20 amp, commercial-grade paddle switch for long life. The 6480-20 ft.s frame is made from tough, electrically welded steel to ensure it won't warp or twist. The powerful 15 amp motor is mounted on a carriage that moves horizontally with minimal effort on graphite-impregnated nylon roller bearings which require no lubrication. The saw can also be turned 90 degrees and fixed to make vertical cuts. Horizontal and vertical scales provide quick and accurate cuts. The material being cut can be loaded from either the left or right side and gently rolls through the saw on a smooth acting roller mechanism. The Panel Saw is not recommended for ripping panels larger than 4 foot x 8 foot. The extension kit accessory, 49-22-8108, is recommended for cutting sheet goods over 6 ft. long.
Features:
  • Rigid all steel frame, square tubing is electrically welded to prevent warping or twisting
  • Comfortable horizontal handle for convenient on/off operation
  • 20 amp commercial-grade paddle switch for durability and long life
  • Cutting accuracy to within 1/32 in. in either cross-cutting or ripping directions
  • Powerful 15 amp, 3-1/4 max HP Milwaukee motor (AC-DC)

Great tool even for a small shop
I always thought panel saws were for rough cuts to get panels down to a manageable size only. This saw changed that idea. Once set up and squared, I have gotten consistent cuts within the advertised 1/32" if not right on the money. It is a pleasure to be able to slide heavy 3/4" oak sheets off the back of the truck, tilt them, slide them onto the saw and cut panels to exact size on the first try. I don't have to call my friends to help me muscle them onto my table saw any longer!
I do recommend getting a finer cutting blade and/or taping your cuts to avoid rough edges.
I recommend this saw without reservation.

Must have for a 1 man shop!
Makes handling sheet goods easy. Accurate cuts. Best if set up in a fixed location, but it can be moved with the optional wheel kit. Acessories are a bit on the expensive side, but make the saw more convenient.

A MUST HAVE FOR A ONE MAN SHOP
This makes cutting sheet good so much safer and faster than using a table saw or sawhorses / track saw. The unit works well, plenty of power and very accurate. The only downside is the dust collection (even with the optional dust collection kit) - could be much better.

Makes my like easier!
I was very surprised, after I purchased the add-on dust collector kit, that the panel saw isn't normally sold with it. It makes the panel saw operation extremely clean. Can't imagine using the saw inside without it.

I used a tracksaw before and that worked fine but if you do enough cutting then this is the way to go.
