Milwaukee sent out a press release Friday introducing their new 10-1/4″ circular saw. Not everybody is going to need a saw this large, but it’s interesting that they managed to shave 1-1/2″ pounds from the previous model, to make the new saw 17.8 pounds.
The model 6470-21 boasts an increased bevel capacity of 60° and a large cushion-grip bale handle that gives you better control while using the saw. The 15A circular saw can cut up to 3-3/4″ deep at 90° and 1-3/4″ deep at 60°.
The saw also features an aircraft-aluminum shoe that’ll stand up to the most rigorous applications and an electronic brake that stops the blade in seconds.
The previous model (6460) lists for $592 but sells for around $350. Since Milwaukee claims they’re not increasing the price on the new model, it should list for about the same price.
