Framing crews and other construction contractors will enjoy the extreme cutting ability of the Milwaukee 6470-21, 10-1/4″ Circular Saw. This is a 15 Amp saw that is built with the power and capacity to handle the most extreme cutting applications. Spinning at 5,200 RPM, the saw easily cuts at max capacity without bogging down under load. Beyond the power, what makes this saw stand out to us over some of the other 10-1/4″ saws we have tested is the electric brake. The blade stops in seconds after the trigger is released. This made for a safe environment to move the saw around after the cut, not worrying about cutting anything that was not meant to be cut.
This beast of a saw is packed with power and features. We were very pleasantly surprised that the direct drive saw would power through extreme cuts without bogging and there was no need to a thin kerf blade. The full sized blade begged for more as it sliced through everything we threw at it like it was a single 2×4. With this power comes some weight. The saw weighs in at 17.8 pounds and it looks every bit of that. The saw is large, but that make sit easy to handle and control. It might make for a tiring day completing overhead cuts, but the large shoe was a blessing for controlling the large unit through 3″ of stacked OSB.
