Milwaukee Dry Cut Saw Review

The Milwaukee Dry-Cut Machine Model #6190-20

Today I did a video review of the Milwaukee 6190-20 dry-cut saw. I have had the saw for about a year and have completed many, many projects with it. "Roberto" from the "Robots" section of this website was built using the Milwaukee dry cut saw and the Hobart Handler 140 Mig welder. Although I can't say that he was entirely built using that saw because when I started out I actually didn't have a chop saw of any kind so the frame for "Roberto" was actually cut with a 4.5" Milwaukee angle grinder. However, once I worked more and more on Roberto as well as other side projects I realized the criticality of having a good chop saw. Therefore, I purchased the Milwaukee 6190-20 dry-cut saw. I was going to purchase an abrasive saw, but after considering the cost of the abrasive wheels vs the carbide tipped blade, I concluded that it would probably be more economical and less frustrating to purchase the more expensive dry cut saw over the abrasive saw. With the dry -cut saw there is very little to clean up after the cut, and the cuts are cool to the touch...most of the time. Without the need for more grinding, efficiency increases, and my stress level decreases. Even though the blades for the dry cut saw are expensive they last a long time. I have built a welding cart, a little trailer for by robot, and have sliced numerous 2x4s with the original Milwaukee Endurance blade over the course of a year and just now am I starting to realize that it may be starting to dull due the larger amount of sparks it is putting out. However I have also been hearing rumors that they have taken the saw off the market due to low demand. Others say that it is because they are improving it by making it more robust. Overall, the machine is pretty robust, however, the clamping system is not very good and it slips under a medial force.
