The most accurate saw on the market
Im a trim carpenter & This is the absolute best most accurate saw useful saw i have ever owned .the digital miter angle makes my statement accurate.theres no other saw on the market this impressive .i made jigs for casing 44.5°44.6°
44.7°44.8°44.9° 45°- 47° .maybe they could have come up with a better slide and possibly made it lighter but i appreciate the weight because it seems heavy duty .the lighting has been a problem since the 3rd month they burned out .not expensive to replace but if they burn out as quickly as mine did every 3 or 4 months they should have replacements included .i solved that problem with 2 helmet headlamps with the battery pack on the band .the dust collection is awesome maybe 80% pickup atleast . i purchased the bosch 12" glide before i got the milwaukee and theres no way that bosch is as durable and accurate as the milwaukee the head has play and if your taking it from job to job thats going to be a huge broblem. So i sold it and got the milwaukee .good choice

Best tools out there.
the only draw back, but quickly making up for it is the weight of Milwaukee tools, as a whole. yes all their tools are heavy, but they last forever as long as you take care of them. the 5 year warranty on their tools out weighs dewalts 3 year warranty and all of the internal parts on dewalt drills and what not are plastic, whereas Milwaukee has metal parts. so there's an obvious weight difference. but the life of the tool is directly affected by that fact. I swear up and down by Milwaukee. I have 3 drill sets - the 199 set with the 2.oah batteries(18v) as well as both fuel sets. I could not be happier and when the off occasion comes around where I let another tradesman use my fuel sets, they're always thrilled at the torque and overall power.

If you're a homeowner and want something light, Milwaukee is not for you. They are dollar for dollar, the best tools on the market. I've been in construction my entire life and used every brand there is out there. Ryobi, Ridgid, Dewalt, Makita, Bosch, Hitachi and everything else. best around.

Well engineered
This saw is very impressive! I'm surprised it has any negative reviews, but with anything that's mass produced some bad ones get out. The engineering is excellent, the design of the rollers makes for no head movement when fully extended. The constant speed function on this works very well and makes the blade cut consistently. The saw is expensive, but for a commercial grade saw It's a bargain. I think the saw came out in 2008, had a small revision in 2012, and it's still on top of many slide chop saw reviews. That says allot about how good this saw really is.

Exceptional saw!
This saw is a work of art! Download the replacement part manual and the wiring manual and you will see how well this saw is made. I've used slide chops for years but nothing like this one. This table miters and the slide rollers are smooth as glass! This is an industrial machine meant to be used day after day and still be amazingly accurate! The direct drive with the grease filled final drive should last indefinitely. I'm blown away at Milwaukee tools and I will only buy these from now on! You pay more but it's worth it.

After using the saw for a few weeks now I've discovered that the bevel has a bit of play on the bevel... other than that the saw is very accurate and powerful

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.
