Milwaukee 2734-21HD M18 FUEL Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw - $458 + tax + Free Shipping

CPO has their Milwaukee 2734-21HD M18 FUEL Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw on clearance along with either a FREE 8.0XC battery or a Folding Miter Saw Stand.

My total came out to $483.30 with Wisconsin tax out the door with free 2-day shipping.

This saw kit regularly sells for $599 all the time so $141 off and a free gift is definitely one of the better deals I've seen in a while. And if you want to cut your cost down you can sell your extra battery or saw stand on the side to someone to lower your cost.

I'm not TU or TD about this deal. Just throwing my two cents in.
I have owned this saw and the 7-1/4" m18 as well.
I hope all these sale prices are to clear inventory and make room for a 2.0 version.
The reason I say this is because the 7-1/4 and the new 12" both use a better rail and dust collection system. The 10" dust collection is poor at best, even with a shopvac attached.
I ended up selling mine because I didn't like it ( I even found mine on the clearance rack for ~$300 with the included battery and the extra free "promo" 9AH battery that had just came out at the time), and I still didn't like it for the money.
Despite the great deal, I still had to sell it due mainly to the ergonomics of the overall package.

I'm not here to dissuade anyone from their purchase. I just think that if you don't need it, you should wait for the next version, get one of the other ones, or just stick to corded/something else for now. This model was a guinea pig from the start and Milwaukee left it for a better design (and for good reason).

I can agree to this. This is a good deal for this particular saw, BUT the saw is not a great saw and does not justify it's cost.

I ended up selling it and getting the 12" flexvolt, and the 10" 36v makita.

Out of all of them, the Makita is the best. Not the 12" cut capacity, but solid build, strong motor, best dust collection, and great cut quality. Only downside is that it's heavy.

If you're carrying on to the job site every day, then the milwaukee could be the better saw since it's light. If you have the saw on wheeled stand, I would go with the dewalt or the makita.

Anyways, as mentioned before. good price for this saw. I just don't believe it's the one to get.

I've owned both of the first generation Milwaukee M18 compound miter saws and the M18 table saw, but switched them to a corded Hitachi 12" compound miter saw and a Delta table saw. I had no issues with the performance of any of the products within their published specifications, I just didn't need portability but wanted larger cut capacity in both so I made the switch after operating all 3 saws for a few months.

The DeWalt and Makita battery saws are MUCH heavier saws and requires two batteries to operate (36v) vs the single battery Milwaukee 18v solution. They are all going to make good cuts when properly set up, and I bet a majority of contractors could not visually inspect cuts from the 3 saws in a blind "saw-off" comparison and tell a significant difference between them.

While they are all compound miter saws the Milwaukee is designed to be ultra lightweight solution and trades some performance and rigidity to achieve a significantly lighter footprint. It also gets 2 years more warranty than the other two saws.

I honestly think the battery platform you are invested in has more to do with the "right" saw for a given use-case than raw performance. Within the realm of what really matters on a jobsite they will all cut dimensional lumber and trim well, the Makida and DeWalt being better 'near the truck/trailer" solutions due to their weight while the Milwaukee 10" or it's tiny 7.25" brother will be easier to drag around a jobsite.

This is a decent deal considering the value of the freebie stand, but honestly I agree that this model will go further on sale and/or clearance again as the new 12" model hits stores. I wouldn't necessarily jump after this deal unless you're in need of a battery operated saw in the M18 family right now.

So you're happy with your M18 7-1/4" miter saw? I've been contemplating picking one up so I don't have to lug around my corded 12" slider for jobs that don't require the extra cut capacity.

Very happy with it. It weighs nothing, makes excellent cuts, and has all the power you need for trim work. I got it last year when the HD did a "deal of the day" for ~$250 for the kit.
I paired it with this stand (~$65) and couldn't be happier about setup or moving it.
https://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWAL.../202818490

I have smaller extension stands for long trim pieces when I need them.
I've used this saw for 5-1/4" base and various trim without issue on (3) ~2,000 sq ft homes.
Love it.

I don't feel biased due to the price though I will say I wouldn't have payed full price for this setup either. I upgraded as deals came around.

I love me some Milwaukee, but two things about this particular saw kind of suck:

1. Milwaukee has produced no plug-in adapter for their M18 line, so unfortunately you can't choose to use this 'plugged-in' like you can with the Dewalt option
2. There's apparently some slop to the rail on this 10" version which can lead to cut accuracy problems (for applications like trim work).. the 7.25" and new 12" versions are apparently much better in that regard.

I think/hope as they continue to produce stationary tools (Miter Saw, Table Saw, Stand Lights, etc) they'll eventually make one of those plug-in adapters.

I also wish they produced a track saw..

I only mention it because this one is exceptionally bad. From my extensive research with reviews before buying it, and after owning it.
My Milwaukee 7-1/4" (2733-20) and my Bosch 12" (GCM12SD) both get 8-9 out of 10 in my books, while the Milwaukee 10" (2734-20) gets a 4 out of 10.
When you cut, you can clearly see the dust that flies directly under and around the dust catch. It's too small and narrow for the job. I think the reason was determined to be because it needed to miss the fence.

It's still a good saw (weight, power, portability). It's just too expensive for the amount of flaws that it brings to the table.

I've never used the Festool (I've heard great things, but my wallet doesn't open that wide).

Good to know it is worse than bad ...

Got mine last year when they were on clearance at Home Depot for $150 for everything. I LOVE mine and have zero complaints! Easily as much power and makes every bit the same cuts as corded saws. Mine has zero slop in rails and alignment is perfect. This would be a steal at even $300!!
