Excerpt: Needed an additional saw for farm work. The rebuilt I just purchased is as good in every way as the new one I bought several years ago. So pleased I just purchased a rebuilt drill for the same purpose. Recived both over night!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Long Run Time, Powerful
Excerpt: Always like to get a new tool when I have a project to do. Bathroom remodel this time - to the studs & subfloor. Bought this for typical cutting needs but mainly to cut shower panels. Came with a 24T blade so had to buy a 60T for that purpose. Really convenient not having a cord. Good safety feature for engaging the trigger. Cuts through studs like buttah. Electric brake stops blade virtually immediately after releasing trigger.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Long Run Time, Powerful, Safe
Summary: I am not in need of a circular saw daily, so getting a lightweight, quiet, powerful saw that uses the M18 battery (of which I carry a lot) really rounds out my cordless tool array. I could see how if you are a carpenter by trade, you might want something a little more heavy duty, but I have been able to accurately cut rough lumber, rip plywood, and do anything my dewalt corded circular saw would do.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Design, Great Blade, Powerful, Safe
