Milwaukee 6390-21 7-1/4-Inch 15-AMP Tilt-Lok Circular Saw


Milwaukee Saw with 7-1/4 Inch saw blade and 15 Amp power:

Products with these specifications include the Milwaukee 6391-21, 6390-20, 6390-21, and 6394-21. Users have found these saws powerful enough for rugged use. With smooth controls and power makes deep cuts through solid material easy. A great feature with the Milwaukee Saw 6391-21 is that you can easily see the blade and the cut line through an opening. The Tilt-Lok facility that some have in this genre makes it easy to cut straight through thin material. With clearly marked wide plate in the 6390-20 it is easy to read markings and rip. The placing of the handle in this circular saw makes cutting smarter, safer and accurate. The 6394-21 comes with a quick-Lok cord and has a fantastic guide visibility.

Certain disadvantages noted with this range are:

The handle on the products are bit tight making it difficult to loosen it. If one has to replace the detachable cord that comes with the Milwaukee circular saws, it has to be ordered from Milwaukee Corp, which turns out to be a bit expensive. Few users have also said that the Tilt-Lok feature is not that impressive. A complain for the Milwaukee saw 6391-21 is that it gets stuck after ripping through approximately 3 feet and deviates from the straight line. The Milwaukee saw 6394-21 that features power assisted electric brakes is not that good.

The Milwaukee saw with 8 inch blade is a range for cutting metals. Include products 6370-20 and 6370-21. These saws are packed with 13 Amp making them powerful enough to cut through #12 rebar. These mean tools delivers faster and accurate metal cutting. Reviews indicate that these saws give out very few sparks while working, making cutting through metal a cooler job.

Criticisms for these saws are:

The Milwaukee saw 6370-21 lacks bevel adjustment with the blade not being in right angle with the saw. The 6370-20 would be more helpful if came with a finer tooth blade than the one it comes with. Also, the blade in this saw is hidden from the view; hence one has to rely on the index marks while cutting metal.

The Milwaukee 6470-21 circular saw comes with a 10-1/4 inch blade size and delivers 15 Amps of power. This one is particularly made for most extreme cutting applications and is not supposed to bog down under load. With electric brake, bevel capacity at 60 degree and cutting depth at 90 degree, this saw makes one mean machine.
