Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Circular Saw that I can take with me !!! I use this on maintenance jobs in the field and at home when I don't want to drag the corded saw out. I have used it to cut down doors to fit, cut trim work and cut through 1 inch of flooring between my kitchen and dining room (as seen in my pictures next to my daughter's curious cat). I am using the new M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion XC Extended Capacity 6.0Ah Battery Pack to power my saw through the toughest flooring and when I was done, I did not use up 1 red light of power. I am sold and a true believer forever on the M12 Fuel series line of brushless power tools. Thanks Milwaukee for these light weight and easy grip tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw for a home owner DIYer. Absolutely love this tool. That being said it does bog down on tougher stuff if you push a little to hard. I'm not a pro carpenter, I'm a mechanic and already had some milwaukee tools and batteries so I bought this saw for home projects. It's exactly what I need for projects at home and nothing more. Its size makes it a bit less intimidating too so my wife who isn't accustomed to power tools used it to make some shelfs. I think a pro could use it too but I cant speak to much on that. I use the 6.0 battery pack on this saw. I tried the 3.0 compact battery once but it overheated the battery pretty quickly. With the 6.0 I was able to cut up an old decrepit shed that was leaning on our fence with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Weight and Powerful I wanted a light weight, battery operated, circular saw and drill to replace my aging corded circular saw and battery operated drill. I selected Milwaukee's 12 volt family of tools over 18 volt systems because of their light weight and compact size. I have not been disappointed with my choice. The M12 FUEL 5-3/8" Circular Saw with a 6 amp hour battery will run all day for my DYI projects. In fact, I used it to build a deck for my daughter and son-in-law and had no issues with it. It cut through 2 X lumber with ease.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Severely underpowered. Go for the m18 version. . I use this for cutting two by fours, 2 by 6 is. Plywood. Pretty much bogs down and stops when cutting regular Pine two by fours. Even using the XC m12 batteries on full charge, still stops and binds several times. I've used brand new saw blades of different brands, just to see if there is an improvement. I also own the fuel M18 cordless skill saw. And that saw has plenty of power and you can build a house with it, with ease. Unless you're cutting twigs, stay away from the M12 fuel skill saw. I own at least 30 Milwaukee corded, and cordless tools. This is the first cordless tool I was unsatisfied with. I'm a huge milwaukee fan. This saw just isn't at the same level of Milwaukees standards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from M12 Fuel Circular Saw 2530-20 Overall an awesome circular saw, best one I have used. It's lightweight is great for making cuts sideways or overhead, like trimming posts. It's battery has a long life, and will last even longer if you make cuts with a guide. The blade cutting area is very visible, and the LED light is also a great addition. While finding blades can be difficult due to its uncommon size, they are cheap. There are trim rated blades available. It does have noticeable lower power than a plugged tool, which the blade can stop when making freehand cuts. There is one design flaw, the arbor screw can be seized when the angle is adjusted past 45 deg (dial goes to 50 deg). The arbor head will grind into the shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! And incredibly light! This little saw is light as a feather. I see people complaining about it on forums but they are missing two really important things. 1) it performs better with a 4ah or better battery. 2) put a diablo saw blade on it! Every saw you ever buy will be junk if you don’t use a good blade. I’m sure the stock blade would be fine with the right battery but it cuts like butter with the diablo. It also lasts way longer than you’d expect a 12v circular saw to last. I have been through MAYBE 2 full battery cycles in over 2 weeks. I don’t use it a ton but it’s my go to for anything where the depth is appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and light weight workhorse! I was not into this saw until my wife bought it for be because she thought it was "so cute." I build wheelchair ramps on a volunteer basis. Usually I would use my 7-1/4" saw for making doing the final touches on a project. However, since I now have this saw in my fleet of M12/M18 tools I've put it to the test. It works pretty good with the 6A battery. Cuts clean through treated 2x and 5/4 material. Need to cut straight and any attempt to steer the saw will bind the blade and cause it to stop in its tracks. Much lighter than the 7-1/4" saw which is handy at the end of the day. Go Team RED!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bogg down all the time The reviews on youtube convinced me, but when i got it and started to use it my exitement became disapointment. I used it to cut up some pallets and ran trought batteries. I got 3 to 4 pallets per 6ah battery, and only 2,5 on a 4ah battery. Feeding in trough slow, and consentrating on making perfectly straight cuts as the saw was super sensitive to minor twists in my hand. I should just have used my m12 recip saw, as it is a more versatile and stronger saw. I could se a limitided use of this saw for cutting floor boards. I have like %80 Milwaukee tools in my company, all other m12 tools have impressed me with it's size to power ratio. But i regret buying this. A handsaw would work just as fast.
