Nice Saw for Small Jobs
A good saw for use in small projects or in locations away from power outlets. It won't compete with 18/24v saws, but a nice addition for M12 tool users. Don't expect to go all day or make very fast cuts, that's not what it's for. Also, you need to use a 3 or 4 Ah battery to not be frustrated with its power consumption. You won't like it if you expect to get by using the standard 2 Ah M12 batteries.

Pros
Lightweight
Good compact saw
Because my truck had all my tools cleaned out I had to buy all new. I thought about upgrading to 18 volt but because i still had 12v batteries replaced with same. Wanted this saw to add.I had one 18 volt dewalt wth nicad and never used it. The milwaukee is great battery lasts much longer than i expected. I do find that if you get a little off track ths blade binds and stops as i use more hapens less.

Great saw for the price
I picked up the saw due to doing a home renovation. The saw is great for doing quick cuts right on the spot. It's so light and portable you can go anywhere with it. My only complaint is currently I only have the original 12v batteries and they don't last long when ripping OSB. Picked up the newer bigger battery and works like a charm

Useless
Bought this saw for light carpentry and when fully charged would only cut about 12" of a piece of plywood before battery died. Would not buy this again.

Love it!
No complaints. Comes with blade and cuts pine 2x's effortlessly.

Beautiful precision design, cuts fine molding to 2X lumber in a breeze. Exceptional construction that inspired me to give away a couple of other beaters that weren't much better than a hand saw or needed a 20 battery charger to keep them going. One of my most used M12s. I love blowing my employees minds when they start to look for an electrical outlet & hand them this little saw telling them to quit wasting time & go on the roof to complete the repair. Its a good thing it won't cut a 4x4 or they would probably neglect my Milwaukee corded 7-1/4'' circulars & Variable speed reciprocating saws! Milwaukee, "taking the future by storm!"

Just what I needed
I work as a grounds manager for a summer camp and the M12 tools have made my life much easier. The weight and power can't be beat. This saw does everything I need it to do and more. I would make sure you get the extra capacity battery for this item.

Can I use my battery for this? #48-11-2401
Craziedusa on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all the M12 batteries will work, thought you'll probably want a bigger battery, or more than on of those if you are doing a lot of cutting.

What is the depth of cut for the 5 3/8" circular saw?
JoeCarpentor on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depth of cut is advertised as 1.5". I've actually found it a TINY bit
deeper than that, which has come in handy occasionally. Like maybe 1/16th
over that. So approximately 1.563"

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
