couldn't even cut 1/2" OSB board
use it 4 times. first 3 cuts did great. used a 4.0 battery. 4th cut got 8" into cutting OSB board & wouldn't cut no more. put a 6.0 battery on it & still wouldn't cut. another junk tool in my opinion.

The reviews on youtube convinced me, but when i got it and started to use it my exitement became disapointment. I used it to cut up some pallets and ran trought batteries. I got 3 to 4 pallets per 6ah battery, and only 2,5 on a 4ah battery. Feeding in trough slow, and consentrating on making perfectly straight cuts as the saw was super sensitive to minor twists in my hand. I should just have used my m12 recip saw, as it is a more versatile and stronger saw. I could se a limitided use of this saw for cutting floor boards. I have like %80 Milwaukee tools in my company, all other m12 tools have impressed me with it's size to power ratio. But i regret buying this. A handsaw would work just as fast.

Amazing saw for tight spaces and cutting one handed in awkward positions. I am a contractor and use it every week one way or another. This saw isn't designed to be used as your primary heavy use saw but is invaluable. I have cut a lot of 2x10 joist with it. It works great but yes... Doesn't have the power of an m18. It's the saw that everyone is always borrowing on the job site.

Great small saw.
I'm absolutely amazed by the power of this little saw. For general homeowner use it has proven essential. No more messing with cords when all I need is 1 cut. Obviously not cutting 6x6 and I'm sure it would tire out quickly building a deck, it's a great second saw to have for small projects.

Another great M12 tool!
I really like the saw for small jobs and it is easy to use for 1” or 2” dimensional lumber. I wish they included the adjustable guide with it.

Severely underpowered. Go for the m18 version. .
I use this for cutting two by fours, 2 by 6 is. Plywood. Pretty much bogs down and stops when cutting regular Pine two by fours. Even using the XC m12 batteries on full charge, still stops and binds several times. I've used brand new saw blades of different brands, just to see if there is an improvement. I also own the fuel M18 cordless skill saw. And that saw has plenty of power and you can build a house with it, with ease. Unless you're cutting twigs, stay away from the M12 fuel skill saw.

I own at least 30 Milwaukee corded, and cordless tools. This is the first cordless tool I was unsatisfied with. I'm a huge milwaukee fan. This saw just isn't at the same level of Milwaukees standards.

Milwaukee saw works great.
I bought the saw to use occasionally in cutting dimensional lumber. It has worked well for my needs and I usually have good luck with Milwaukee products.

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 120 days.
