Default Purchasing a Chop Saw. Any Suggestions?

Hey all.
Well i burned up the old 14" chop saw in the shop the other day. I have no idea how old the dang that was but i know it has been there for a long time lol. So Right now I am looking into a Milwaukee Chop saw. They make 2 different ones. One has a little bigger motor for $50 more.
The only other thing i was wondering about was a bladed chop saw if it was worth it or not. Milwaukee also has a cold cut saw but it is like $150 more and then blades are around $130 too. Are they really worth that much extra? I have a band saw but that is what we use for bigger cuts.

Let me know what is out there.
Thanks

Dont bother with the bladed chop saw, they dont seem to hold up.

This is from what I have read, not my own experience.


I have a milwaukee, not sure which one, but it works great. I dont use it everyday but I bet there is not much better out there.
