John Malecki's Milwaukee M12 Cordless Cutoff Saw Tool Review

Not to brag, but I’ve always thought of myself as the type of guy that can do it all. Block a defensive tackle from reaching my QB? Check. Build a table from a giant slab of wood? Check. Sing a karaoke rendition of ‘Someone Like You’ that puts Adele herself to shame? Well, I’m working on it.

This ability to do it all is exactly what I love about the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Cutoff Saw and why I’m super jazzed to share it with you guys. The Milwaukee M12 Cordless Cutoff Saw is great for tackling all types of projects made of almost any material you can imagine. Trust me -- this thing’s the real deal, and you’re gonna want one for yourself.

Here’s how I use the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Cutoff Saw

John Malecki tool review

As you know, I do a lot of builds in my shop for both my channel and my clients. I’m constantly pushing myself to try out new style, new designs, and new materials, creating somewhat of a milieu of mixed-media projects. Luckily, I’ve had a workshop full of tools ready to take on everything from thick metal tubing for frames to thin pieces of wood. But I know not everyone has that caliber of tools lying around -- and I’ll admit, I’ve been wanting a tool I can take with me that can handle these tasks.

The Milwaukee M12 Cordless Cutoff Saw is really the answer to my prayers here. This thing has the ability to cut almost any material you challenge it to, including tile, steel, drywall, wood, and plastic. Powering through with 20,000 RPM of the 3 included blades, the M12 Cutoff Saw gives me clean, accurate cuts on every project. I was truly taken aback from the power of the M12 Cutoff Saw. Built with Milwaukee’s POWERSTATE brushless motor, you’re gonna get one long-lasting motor life out of this thing -- the kind of motor and power that’s not going to leave you hanging, either.

Best of all, I can’t get over how easy this thing is to use. Designed for one-handed cuts, the M12 Cutoff Saw is lightweight and ergonomic. It’s really nice to be able to work on a project that’s running parallel to me; it really gives me that extra leg-up for power that I like to have on my big projects. What’s also really cool is you can switch the direction of the rotation with a simple click, giving you a lot of freedom to build out whatever you can dream up.

I say it every tool review, but I have no problem shelling out for tools that are going to last, serve a wide variety of purposes, and make me feel good to use. But here’s the thing: I don’t even count this as shelling out. You’re getting an incredible value on a tool you’re going to use again and again -- so the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Cutoff Saw is really a steal.

My Thoughts:

John Malecki's tool review thoughts

I really love the power and versatility of the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Cutoff Saw. Not only has this thing been a true staple in my shop since I got it, but if I’m heading in the house to do home improvement or to help a buddy with some stuff around his house, this is the first tool I reach for. This kind of power and versatility usually comes at a steep price, but this this in really such a steal -- just trust me here, try it out.
