Summary: As pointed out the description is a wee bit out.....My one was 3° out from the 90° But easy fixed. The front notch does not line up with the cut on both sides and is too wide for the blade, Only the right hand side one is true. Excellent long limp power cable on this light easy to use powerfull saw, The gaurd is sprung very well and not like many saws that are way too strong, Nice easy to use trigger even for left handed use.
Summary: For years I preferred to use the larger circular saws, purely for reliability. But had this little mini marvel a few months now and its more than paid for itself already. Very easy to handle and comfortable in grip and manouverability. Typical Dewalt build quality not surprisingly and very good value for money.
Summary: I recently purchased this item and was a little dubious because of the low price tag. However i neednt have worried its a real cracker and the quality is of the standard you would expect from the name DeWalt. My one gripe is that it doesn't come with a dust bag. In this day and age of MP3 players and air-con as standard it seems a little chulrish they couldn't throw one in!
Summary: Excellent saw and very light for a saw of this size. Beware of the initial 90 degree set-up; mine was miles out. Dust extraction facility is excellent (exactly as advertised) but a dust extraction bag is not included which seems a bit churlish.
Summary: As a keen diy'er I'm always looking for good quality tools at a competitive price. This circular saw offers both. Dewalt tools have never let me down and I would certainly reccommend this product for quality and value.
Summary: This is my first purchase of a circular saw and I find this machine very solid and well-designed. The controls seem to be in the right places and so far I am very satisfied with my purchase. I use such tools with some trepidation but feel confident with this one. I entered 4 stars for reliability but have not had it long enough to make a valid evaluation.
Conclusion: This dewalt is a great entry level circular saw for trade use – solidly made and it cuts really well. I personally thnk it’s always worth paying the little bit extra over some entry level saws and this one’s solid, steady and reliable. The gauge also holds firm and it’s as accurate as other saws I’ve owned have tended to drift. Highly recommended.
