Milwaukee s 6370-21 13 Amp 8-inch metal cutting circular saw delivers faster, cooler, cleaner, more affordable metal cutting. Forget the showers of hot metal chips and sparks that were once an aerial threat on metal construction jobsites. The 6370 shears the metal, producing a virtually spark-free wake and cool, burr and scorch-free edges that don t require post-cut finishing. Cool cut waste, in the form of metal shavings, is effectively contained with a durable magnesium blade shield and channeled into the saw s integral chip tank. Cool cutting also means that materials can be handled almost immediately following a cut, reducing downtime. Driven by a powerful, 13 amp 1-3 4 max HP , 3,700 RPM motor and equipped with a full grill of razor-sharp, cermet-tip teeth, the 6370 tears through tough cuts without hesitation. Count on up to 10 gauge sheets and 1 4-inch steel plate cuts, all day, every day. More extreme cuts, even up to 3 4-inch steel plate, are possible when proper operating techniques are used. Any way you slice it, cold cutting metal means value. Internal test results indicate that our new metal cutting blades last a minimum of 25 times a standard abrasive wheel. Specially-formulated cermet tip metallurgy and tooth geometry ensure these incredible blades cut faster, stay sharp longer, and resist more impacts for a significantly lower cost per cut 0.20 versus 0.60 . To keep on target, the new 6370 features a set of on-board sight-line and blade point-of-entry indicators along with a slot in the saw s shoe for a rip fence. It is also the first and only corded metal cutting saw to feature a lower guard retraction lever. Plunge cuts are fast and furious with this exciting new tool. The lever s location ensures that the user has both hands firmly on the saw throughout the cut. The 6370-21 includes the 8-inch metal cutting saw, metal cutting blade 48-40-4515 , hex blade wrench, and impact resistant carrying case.
Customer reviewsShould have bought this fifty years ago
I love this saw. It arrived damaged though. There is a front pivot that is spot welded to the base plate. Mine arrived detached see photo -- likely a cold spot weld job. So minus one star. I live in a foreign country. I have a feeling that the customs inspector took the saw out of the case and dropped it because there are also a couple small paint scuffs on the chip collection case.
