Bummed I bought this with a 4amp battery and charger for $200 a month ago. I don't track these - but this feels like a great price including 6amp battery...

Mediocre but not a SD. Pre Xmas was as low as $115 shipped. $135-139 shipped was average with manufacturer 6ah battery promo.

I bought and returned one of these maybe a year ago. Just kept stalling on a piece of 3/4 ply I tested it on. Have the M12 drill,driver, ratchet, jig saw and inspection camera, so I'm not against the M12 stuff.

Have an old V18 saw with the adapter to use M18 batteries and it cuts without much trouble by comparison. Just not for as long as the new ones but good enough for home use.

How is the jigsaw? I've been debating the jigsaw and hackzall.

Did you have the M12 or the M12 Fuel? Very significant difference between the two. Also a handful of different models within the M12 line over the last few years.

Payed the same price on Nov 16, 2019 with a 6Ah battery. Good saw, and that's correct, it doesn't include charger. I already had M12 charger from other M12 tools.

I'm a fan of the jigsaw but the hackzall is kinda lame. The stroke is much shorter than a saws all so it takes quite a bit longer to make a cut. If it didn't come with the set I bought, I would have returned it.

I've got this M12 Fuel circular saw. It's usually the first thing I grab because it's so light/portable (vs a track saw, corded circular, or the miter/table saw), particularly for demo and rough sizing - it does a pretty good job through 2x4s and 3/4" plywood as long as the work piece isn't binding the blade. Putting a Diablo blade in it really seems to have helped, IMO.

It's been this price in store for months. If you already have batteries, you can return the free battery so the saw is around $100. The deal expires first week of February, I believe.

I second the comments about M12 *Fuel* being a portable, powerful tool, but can be brought down by weak batteries (under 3 Ah) or dull blades. I use it to cut two-by lumber and OSB and ply. It will stall if the battery is old or tired.

https://youtu.be/itMi_cUWN2U?t=99 interesting... Big M12 fan, own several tools within the line, but zero chance of one of them ever being a circular saw.

Your comment seems like your bashing the circular saw, but the video you linked was favorable on the saw...He even says that it "has a hell of a lot of power".
Your link also starts at what equates to the con side of the list (it hits a thermal limit after 10 consecutive cuts through a 2x4" and needs a minute to cool down). In the real world you would hopefully be using a miter saw for that task.
Logically you wouldn't expect it to make 80 consecutive cuts without breaks in the real world because only an idiot would buy this for framing a whole house, but this is perfect for a DIY fence or deck job for the average home owner or punch-list work.

Which one?
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../100672230
I've had both and the 1st gen is pretty gutless (but it's also pretty perfect for PVC, EMT, Etc.).
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../205145401
The Fuel model is really good (far better than low end 18V stuff...looking at you: porter cable, craftsman, black&decker, etc.).
I also have the 18V fuel Hackzall. I would say the M12 Fuel is capable of 80% of any work that I would use the M18 Fuel​ for.
But if your main goal was something like demoing a house, no hackzall is made for that. A sawzall is more adequate due to having a longer stroke and more power from a bigger motor (the hackzalls were designed with less specifically for the purpose of being compact and one-hander friendly).
