This was my 5th circular saw, but the first cordless model. I'd wanted one for a long time, but before this tool, none had enough run-time.
- Not even close to the power of my old corded (13 amp) Makita Hypoid circular saw, or 30-year old (10 amp) Craftsman circular saw; but it's still the most powerful cordless model available. Hardly anything slows those larger saws down, but that can and does happen with this V28 saw.
- The thin kerf blade bends much easier than a standard blade on a corded saw. As a result, it doesn't always work well with a saw guide. This is because the blade can get off-track to one side or the other and isn't sufficiently stiff to straighten itself. In other words, you're pushing the saw forward, but the blade may have wandered off to one side, messing up the cut. Cutting freehand against a drawn line works well, however.
- Excellent design and build quality.
- 28 volt Lithium-Ion batteries; the highest voltage and longest lasting batteries; latest battery technology. Of the three primary tool battery technologies, NiMH or Lithium-Ion batteries are clearly the best, and NiCad is clearly inferior.
- V28 power. Good power and run-time for a cordless circular saw. Circular saws used on big cuts drain batteries, so to use one all day on a construction job, you'll need multiple recharges. I still use a corded saw for the most demanding cuts, or angle cuts in thicker wood, but for everything else, this one does fine.
- Press a button on a V28 battery and 1 to 4 LEDs will shine, indicating remaining power. You'll know if it needs a charge BEFORE climbing the ladder, etc.Read more ›
BUT: it is not a replacement for a corded saw as milwaukee advertises, it will do on 1 battery what the 18v's do on 2.
IT's fit and finish are very good and the tool is about the same weight as the 18v. this is a good buy.
It's small, light weight, and very easy to handle. I currently use it for quick cuts where I don't want to haul out a cord, or don't have enough cord to reach remote areas. Twice we had a power failure at the jobsite, where this saw turned out to be an absolute life saver. It that role, it's the perfect saw. Now, I can't imagine not having it with me when I show up for work.
Free hand cutting this thin plywood was a good test of the saws ability to stay on the line and not make wandering cuts. I used 2x4 extension supports on my saw horses to hold up the plywood sheet and during one cut I didn't position the ply away from the 2x4 underneath, and as the blade encountered the support lumber, the saw bogged down a little (I actually thought the blade was just getting pinched) and then it emerged past the 2x4 as I finished my cut. The 2x4 was cut like I had used my miter saw, perfectly clean. And this cut was at quite an angle, like 60 degrees, so I was cutting through the 2x4 for quite aways. Very impressive.
I then used the tool to trim off the thinner outer edge of the plywood. I normally would have used my jig saw for this, but the Milwaukee saw offers such confident control, I marveled at the way it shaved off this thinner stock and just kissed the fatter edge of the ply with the backside of the blade as I used it to smooth it off flush. Using this saw will turn you into a plywood surgeon.
After I was done, I recharged the battery, even though the battery wasn't showing signs of being drained, which took about 20 minutes. Its good to know though, that the second battery provided with the saw was ready to go if I needed to go to it, so I could keep cutting.Read more ›
This is the perfect example of why it's so important to check Amazon daily: At $263 including shipping (the saw, the charger and two batteries) plus a free mail-in tool body certificate (I selected the hammer drill) how can you go wrong? Two 28v LiOn Milwaukee tools w/ charger and 2 batteries for $263!?!?!? How can Home Depot compete with that?
