Very mobile tool. Convenience is huge. Could be a little more powerful, but after all it’s a 12v

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.

Compact and packs a punch
I use this mighty saw to cut through lots of 2x4s and plywood. Strong enough for the job all day long. I love how compact it is. I don’t have to lug around a full sized saw, this one fits great in my bag with other M12 tools. Love it, highly recommend it.

It costs sheet goods with ease. The blade that comes with it is fine but once you change to a diablo blade it really brings this saw to life

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"

BEST ANSWER: This listing is for the tool only and does not include a bag.
Does this come with a blade (as pictured)?
Drew on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12V Cordless Lithium-Ion 5-3/8 in. Circular Saw (Bare Tool) does come with a 5-3/8" blade as pictured.
Does the bare tool version come with a blade (as pictured)? Or is it literally a bare tool?
Drew on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A 5-3/8" 16 carbide teeth blade is included, but the battery pack, charger and carrying case are not. The full set is item #2530-21XC.
Milwaukee says it comes with a free 6ah battery upon adding to cart (until January 2020). However no battery shows, even upon checkout? Please advise

Can I put a 5 3/8” metal blade in this saw and use it for cutting metal?
Jake L on Apr 23, 2018
Why is it marketed as a 5 3/8 saw if it can use 5 1/2 blades?
