I bought this high dollar jewel just over a year ago to remodel my sister's dining and living room for my great-niece who is autistic with down syndrome. Anyway, I was hoping it would be better than dealt because I've had problems with their batteries. I love the high output in a compact design. It's a smooth straight cut and how easy it is to one hand. There is hardly any blade wobble at all. However, I have had some serious issues that should not have happened in such a short time period for what this thing cost. I wasn't thinking about the warranty so I did some repairs myself. First, the blade guide broke off an aluminum tab that holds it in place because most of the screws were loose, and not just on the guide. Then one of the screws stripped out way to easy tightening it back down. I ended up having to drill it out completely and install a bolt all the way through. There should have been another set on top instead of some flimsy aluminum tabs. Second being the stickler I am about maintenance I checked the grease in the gears. Figures, hardly any in there. I do like the double gear ser up. Thirdly, the biggest issue of all. What shut this saw down in the middle of renovating my new house. The electrical issues. I had to replace 3 wires in this thing because they were melted off. They melted off! One was the thermal sensor wire from the motherboard, the second was the positive wire from the motherboard to the battery plug, and the third was a wire from the battery plug to the trigger. After one year! One never had this much trouble from anything, ever. Name brand or cheap brand. and I'm still getting the 1,3/2,4 flash code. For my first time with Milwaukee, I got to say not impressed with your engineers. It as a career mechanic inhabit met to many engineers that don't make things complicated. Here are some pics as well.
