The Milwaukee M18 Cordless 6-1/2″ Circular Saw

The Milwaukee M18 6-1/2 inch cordless circular saw is small…

…but it doesn’t want for power.

Up to 5,000 RPMs fuel this little saw through 2x material and any type of plywood.

We recently got our hands one.

So we looked at features, tested it, and discussed the pros & cons.

Milwaukee’s 6-1/2 Inch M18 Circular Saw…Our Thoughts

First, this is a compact saw.

It measures 13.5″ long and weights only 6.8 lbs.

This is great for portability and anyone who wants a saw they can whip around like a phone.

Okay, maybe not a phone, but you get the point…it’s light.

Second, any tool in Milwaukee’s M18 lineup has the ability to use the M18 battery.

Thus, the 5.0 Ah battery for the Milwaukee M18 Sawzall works for this saw.

Which is good because the model in our video doesn’t come with a battery!

Also, the 5,000 RPMs are plenty for most 2x materials and any plywood material.

Finally, Milwaukee offers a crazy 5 year warranty for this saw.

Five years is a long, LONG time and that’s a huge deal for anyone using a saw every day.

Weekend warriors also benefit from Milwaukee’s gutsy move to cover this tool for 5 years.

Our video looks at all the benefits, does basic tests, and explains what we like and what we think Milwaukee can improve
