Love it. Has plenty of power and I have three batteries so power is always available.
For a 12 V, the saw it’s pretty good. If you don’t want to buy another battery system it’s worth buying the saw for sure, but it’s definitely under powered and certainly not a good choice for the job site. With that in mind, it’s a compact 12V circular saw that has its niche and your average fix it projects for the average home owner this will do it.
Saw works great, lots of power for a 12v saw. Used to frame in 4ah battery lasted all day while doing some framing.
With its lite weight and thin kerf I can use this over my head with ease. If you need a bigger saw use it but this saw will surprise you.
Haven’t gotten to use on a job just yet. I purchased to use around the house. I am a DIY person and love this saw so far. I have only tested it out. The blade it comes with isn’t bad but definitely went out and got some other ones for different applications (Diablo blades online). Tested it out and it rips like butter baby. Love this thing. Looking for stuff to cut!!!
This saw has more power than my old 18v which was a different brand. Milwaukee continues to innovate the best tools in the industry. Thank you !!
I wanted this to cut my 3/4″ plywood into manageable pieces for my table saw. Four batteries later, I’ve got my pieces cut. Had to go super slow and took way too much time. If your wanting something to cut 3/4″ plywood, I’d go with the 18V for sure.
LOVE ALL M12 PRODUCTS MAY ALSO JUMP UP TO M18
I bought this saw to use on the job for ripping panels, quick 2× cuts and light plung cutting. The product is light weight and performs very well especially with the 6 AH battery.
great to have at the garage shop and worksite. weight is well balanced.
I am a handy man/ contractor and this saw is the best. Put a 6 amphr battery on it and you’re cutting for a long time.
Works great for everything I need it to do. Light and easy to use
I use this saw for all my small jobs. It has proven it self to me in the short time I have had it. Simply better the the rest!!!!
Does a good job powerful would buy it again I would buy more tools like m12
I built custom frames for my daughter’s paintings. Lightweight powerful I love the light on it and goes quite a ways on a charge
great saw light weight love it lot of power cuts great
Easy to use and compact Impressively strong
I love this little saw. Easy and quick to use for a small job. I have only had it for a short time but it has worked flawlessly so far.
I love it! I have the worm drive also which is great for bigger projects but this is just handy for the little stuff
We’re condo owners and having a powerful battery powered circular saw is the perfect solution for the reno’s most of us do.
