Question about Milwaukee 6180-20 14" Chop Saw Abrasive Cut-off Machine
If it trips the breaker as soon as you hit the switch, check the power circuit. Check the power cord for frays or cuts, especially where the cord goes into the saw. Remove/split the handle and check the wires into and out of the switch and to the brushes and field. Lood for burned or melted wires or case parts. Milwaukee is notorious for running lots of small wires in very tight places. Make sure none of them got pinched when the tool was assembled. Watch for this also when you reassemble the saw. Check the brushes, if they're worn or broke they can cause a short on the armature. If these all check out you need to have the armature checked on a growler for shorts.
If the saw runs for a few seconds then trips the breaker I'd check for gear and bearing problems. Cehck for free, smooth movement of the bearings on the armature and blade drive assembly. The blade should turn freely by hand. Feel for undue resistance or a gritty feel in the bearings and gears. If necessary replace any offending parts.
