New Milwaukee Rear Handle Circular Saw – My Thoughts
This saw was a standout at Milwaukee’s NPS and with really good reason! Cordless technology has continued to improve and with more advanced brushless motors and electronics more tools than ever have gone cordless with no compromise. The Rear Handle Circular Saw is a tool that a lot of people will find themselves drooling over. With Professional Contractors in mind, Milwaukee geared this tool towards heavy users, particularly framers and it is very obvious in its design. It was highly anticipated and from my time with it at NPS, I don’t think users will be disappointed!
