A cordless compact circular saw is a small, handheld power saw that is used to make quick, precise cuts in a variety of materials. It is a versatile tool that can be used for a variety of applications, including cutting through lumber, plywood, metal, and tile.
The saw is powered by a battery, making it portable and convenient for use in a variety of settings.
Power to outperform-Worx Nitro tools are engineered to provide greater power performance and runtime. This cordless compact circular saw features a compact design for excellent maneuverability and portability.
Quick rip and plunge cuts have never been easier just grab the Worx saw and go. The Worx saw uses a brushless motor which is more efficient runs 50 percentage longer is 25 percentage more powerful and has 10 percentage longer life than a traditional motor.
0-46 degree bevel cuts are a breeze with this 4. 5 in. Circular saw just set the easy-to-use bevel adjustment lever.
I’m a remodeling contractor and my work can often be very demanding. I need tools that are not only heavy duty, but rugged as well. I purchased this tool to finish installing laminate flooring and it did well for a while.
The blade bent after a few hours use and the cuts were not straight. The base is not very sturdy and although I like the tool, I should have opted for the corded version.
I bought this just a few weeks ago. We have been remodeling, and in order to cut my wall panels with my standard circular saw, I had to have help. I received the Pegasus work table as a Christmas gift, and then I ordered the saw, then I finished all the cuts, perfectly, by myself! The saw is smaller, lighter, and easier to handle, and if fully adjustable.
Don’t wait if you are considering it! Well worth it!.
I needed a saw to replace my floor on my outside porch. This saw did an excellent job cutting thru 2x4s and 3/4 inch plywood. The saw is very portable and easy to use. The battery lasted a long time and only needed 45 minutes to charge back up.
Because of the brushless motor it is more reliable and runs longer. It was also light weight and not heavy. It is fun to use!.
At less than 4 lbs, the WORXSAW is the circ saw to use when you don’t want a big and heavy traditional circular saw to lug around. But despite its slim, compact design, this saw has the functional power of a much larger saw.
How is that possible? The arbor on its blade is only “, half the thickness of blades on full-size saws, so the brushless motor can spin it twice as fast. The one-hand design makes it easy to use. Rip and plunge cuts are pieces of cake.
It even makes bevel cuts. Just set the bevel adjustment lever at the degree you need (0-45Â°). Though, where this saw really shines is slicing up 2″ stock lumber. With a depth-of-cut of 1-11/16″ it’s the perfect saw for stock lumber projects.
But maybe the best part is the Powershare 20V battery, because you don’t have a cord to get tangled up in. And, you can use that battery on any other tool in the Worx Powershare family. The blades are a snap to change with its easy-to-use spindle lock.
It features a dust port, so you can attach a vacuum and keep your project clean and visible. Speaking of visibility, its left-sided blade design keeps the tool off the cut-line, which makes for more accurate cuts.
And the integrated safety trigger on the handle protects against accidental operation-you need to press two triggers to start up the WORXSAW.
I bought this to use on various projects around the home to avoid dragging out the big circular saw plus extension cords. I recently got an item delivered on a big skid. I used this little saw to cut it up to smaller pieces for our trash can.
I used a fully charged 4 Ah battery and used the attachment to hook up to my shop vac. It did a great job and there was very little clean up when project was complete. Note: the blade did bind up a couple of times when I was not positioned properly over the area that was being sawed.
Every time I positioned myself square with the cut the saw cut thru even the thickest part of the skid like cutting butter. The battery still had around 3/4 charge left. Just amazing. It is light weight and easy to control.
This saw will replace my big corded circular saw as I can’t see the need for that big of a saw for the projects that I do around the house. Thanks Worx for yet another great product.
When you don’t want to mess with cords or want or need to lug around a large circular saw this Worx saw should be considered. It’s lightweight, easy to use, fits in hand nicely and doesn’t compromise on power needed for the job.
Only drawback is the battery and charger aren’t included so if you don’t already have Worx tools it may pose an inconvenience. I also find coordinating different tools with the different batteries obligates a person to stick with one brand which isn’t always the best.
The WX523L 20-Volt WORXSAW is an entry point cordless saw for the beginner DIY’er or a second saw for the small projects. This saw was born to cut wood, especially 1 in. nominal lumber materials. This saw weighs only 4-1/2 lbs.
, so it is easy to transport and maneuver. The grip and safety trigger provide great comfort, balance and control. The 3-3/8 in. blade cuts all 1X material and is the lightest circular saw. Plus, the lightweight saw’s left-sided blade design provides remarkable cut-line visibility.
The saw’s 3-3/8 in. blade has a kerf that is less than half the thickness of larger 7-1/4 in. circular saw blades. Since this smaller, thinner blade takes much less effort and motor strain to cut through the material, the 4 Amp 3500 RPM saw can match the performance of full-size circular saws.
The saw’s maximum cutting depth at 90 is 1-1/16 in. The saw also features a dust extraction port and a 1-1/4 in. vacuum adapter for dust collection and a clean work environment. Comes with a Carbide Tipped Blade, no batter or charger as it is tool only carton.
I bought this saw because I needed an easy to use portable saw for a flooring job. I was cutting out 3/4″ OSB from a mobile home. I wanted to use this saw to cut between the joists so I could pull up the old board.
This saw simply lacks the torque to successfully get through OSB. I don’t know if it was the torque, or the saw itself filling up with too much sawdust. It has the sawdust discharge hole, but without a vacuum attached the area around the blade was FILLING with sawdust.
When I’d stop cutting, and lift the saw, about 1/4c-1/2c of sawdust would come out of the saw. I suppose its possible that OSB cuts differently than regular wood, but I was still pretty surprised this saw kept getting bogged down.
If the tool had enough torque it would power that sawdust out of the way. The blade would either seize completely, or slow down significantly. There were no nails or staples or anything where I was cutting, just empty air under the board.
I bought a “store brand” corded saw that was 6 amps, and it tears through the wood like nobody’s business. I think that this Worx tool would be good for small projects, or projects involving limited cuts.
But it just lacks the torque to get through this project so I had to return it. And yes I had fully charged batteries. Using the 4. 0 battery didn’t really seem to change the occurrence of seizures either.
(I thought perhaps it’d have more torque). I like most Worx tools but I couldn’t justify keeping this one.
I actually loved this saw however I did return it. I was reading the description on a couple of these little saws and there was one that actually cut thru 2 in wood and I mistakenly thought it was this one.
Unfortunately this one does not cut thru 2 inch wood and that is what I use on 99% of my projects. Having said that I do love this saw. Just couldn’t use it. It is a great little saw for women. Easy to handle.
Just gotta make sure you mark where you need to cut and follow it because it is easy to cut unevenly if you don’t have a guide. Hoping Fingerhut will carry the larger one that I need so I can re buy it.
My children bought this for me last year for Father’s Day because they new that I had several other Worx tools and loved them. This one, however, is a different story. This time I used it which, was about 5 months after they gave it to me, the adjusting lock for the depth of cut broke (made of cheap plastic).
The second job that I wanted to do was to cut some 2 x 4’s – big problem as this saw does not have the capacity for 2 x 4’s. I would definitely not waste money on this tool. Please do let this affect your decision on the jig saw & reciprocating saw combo which is a great tool, or the combo rotating head drill which is another great tool or the turbine leaf blower.
They make lots of great tools but this is not one of them.

I bought this to supplement our other saws and found we use it more than our other saws! It is so handy and easy to maneuver. Our latest project was installing hardwood floors. It was a lot easier to cut the boards right where we were installing instead of running back and forth to the bigger saws in the garage.
I bought this tool and I really wanted to return it, but it is too much work to return. It is very small. The design is good but It only comes with a blade, so it does not work if you want to use it with different materials.
This little tool is perfect for my deck railings install since the deck is already done. Cutting the access holes for the railing posts will be so much easier with this tool. Since I had the batteries already I was able to save a little money with just buying the “tool only” option.
The power is there when I need it and the design and compact size makes it less tiresome to use than other saws.
This cordless circular saw set includes everything you need to get started on your DIY projects with a Brushless 12V 5-1/2in. Circular Saw, a fast-charging PWRCore 12 Lithium Battery with PWRAssist Mobile Charging, and a PWRJump Charger.
The easy-to-handle compact circular saw helps you make quick and accurate wood cuts, and the PWRCore battery ensures a longer run time and battery life on the job. This circular saw kit is designed for compact power, efficiency, and performance.
The Skil Pwrcore12 brushless 12V circ saw seems to have even more power than both the dewalt 12v and milwaukee m12; spinning at 4200rpm, contrasted with the 3600rpm of the DeWalt and M12. For the current price of $69, it is hard to beat the price too.
Now, none of them will stand up to the harder use of a 18/20/36V/corded saw, but for occasional use or thinner materials, they will do fine.
Just not strong enough for real work. I have a ton of batteries for B & D stuff because my gardening stuff is all black and decker. I decided to try the power tools to see if I could get some use out of the batteries in between yard chores.
This stalls out unless you go very slowly. I bought one of those red blades everyone uses since usually those are enough to make a poorly performing saw at least usable. Not this thing. It’s too bad because I love the weed eater and hedge trimmer, actually has more power than the bright green versions I also own.
Shame about this saw. This runs @ 3700 rpm, the bright green saws I have run @ 4400 and it makes a huge difference, they also don’t bog down nearly as much. The matrix trim saw is pretty darn amazing for what it is, I probably had too high expectations for this.
If I need to saw something thicker than 1/4 inch I reach for another saw, and honestly if it’s a 1/4 inch I reach for the matrix trim saw. This will be the back up saw for the back up saw.
Wouldn’t want to have to build a house with it, but it does a good enough job on the things you buy a light battery-operated saw for. I have about 10 other tools that all use the B&D 20vMax batteries, and this is a nice tool to have in that lineup.
( Have to say, though, I bought it to replace another one just like it that quit working after not too many uses. I would have just replaced the switch, but this one was only 10 bucks more, and a lot less work.
It works great for light duty such as plywood cutting. Does cut 2×4’s, but to cut many of them get more batteries. I have several batteries, so I could actually use it all day. Also recommend a good blade it makes a big difference.
It is also much quieter than an electric saw. So, for small DIY work with any size plywood I highly recommend this saw. Remember NO CORDS TO DRAG AROUND!.
This 5 1/2 inch hand saw is one of the best products I’ve ever owned. Small, light-weight, but durable for just about any small to medium woodworking projects one might be considering. I’ve cut through 1/4″ and 1/2″ plywood with ease with this saw.
Two by fours are a cinch, quick and easy. The 20V Lithium battery provides plenty of power to get the job done. However, depending on the type of wood one is cutting and how much needs to be cut, the battery will drain quicker.
I discovered that; after constant hard use for about an hour and a half, the saw would stop cutting through the piece of plywood, indicating that it needed a charge on the battery. It took about an hour to recharge the battery.
I highly recommend purchasing several extra batteries and keep them on charge so that one can continue on with their work instead of having to stop and wait for the battery to charge. If you’re a person who likes to do small projects where a lot of wood cutting is involved, and you don’t like hefting a heavier electric circular saw, this light-weight little saw will not only get the job done, but won’t wear your hand/arm out while doing it.
This saw is light enough for the average woman to handle and not get fatigued in the arms during use.
Nice to have a cordless saw for jobs that require mobility. The battery life was a bit shorter than expected so I wouldn’t recommend this for heavy duty jobs. We used it to cut 2×6 and 2×8 and after about 80% of the job the motor began to strain a bit.
Easy to use and light weight. My sister who has smaller hands, had a bit of difficulty holding down both the safety release and the trigger. No problems otherwise. The blade included is a 12 tooth blade, given the motor size, would consider swapping for a blade with a higher tooth count.
Base plate seems a bit flimsy (formed sheet metal). There was some interference with the blade guard when installing the blade, but after installation no problems. Batter charger is a nice compact size.
I received this product at a discounted price in return for my unbiased review.
I recently switched away from an older, corded circular saw to this smaller, light-weight, cordless saw and have loved the results! Corded tools tend to be a hazard, they are easy to trip over and I constantly have to be weary of cutting through the cord when I change cutting angles/positions.
Not only does this cordless saw solve these issues, but it is actually lighter-weight than my old saw, even with the 20V battery. Since it is battery powered however, the charge only lasts so long—about 1.
5 – 2 hours. Usually, this is plenty of time to finish my projects, however I bought an additional battery so that I always have one in use and one charging. So far, I have loved the product and would definitely recommend.

I like that there is such a great warranty, it says alot about a product that a company will stand by and offer this great of one. This included everything I needed to get going and started with my project, highly recommend!!.
This saw looks great and has great specs. It’s very lightweight and a list of great features. If you have a corded circular saw or even a battery operated saw-za, this will be a disappointment. Definitely does not do anymore than a 2×4.
If you try it won’t even cut, it just stops. Secondly the position of the 2×4 matters. If it is straight on a table or horse it should be fine. If you are cutting a stud or fence post, it may take a few attempts.
Overall if you can get it for less than 60 probably worth it, anymore and you will regret it.
Received the saw and bought an 18v battery and charger. Once the battery was charged I put it in the tool. Tool did not operate. I am truly disappointed. ,as I needed it for my project this coming Saturday.
I thought you verified these tools before putting them on the market. I guess that was not done and the result is I’m frustrated,to have to go through the trouble of returning it. Waste of my time.
Good convenient saw. Was wary of cordless for lack of power but so far so good. Handy and light. Was a remanufactured unit so the price was irresistible. I have many Makita tools and they have remained dependable through the years and this one fits right in.
This is a 6. 5 inch circular saw so I will keep it for smaller projects but I am very happy with ut.
Metal Cutting Circular Saw generates 15 Amp corded power, faster cuts than 15 Amp corded metal circular saws and delivers up to 120 ft. of cutting corrugated decking per charge with a POWERSTATE Brushless Motor.

Bought this reconditioned because its not something I will use often. It sat unopened for a few months, which I now know I should have checked it and sent it back. When I finially needed it I opened the box only to discover it had no blade.
By the time you add in the cost of a blade I’m saving nothing, so I suggest you buy it new and get a new blade. It works fine but not happy it didnt come with a blade.
I received my Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt 8 in. Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Metal Cutting Circular Saw Kit. It came with a with 8. 0 Ah Battery, Rapid Charger, saw blade and a nice carrying bag. The first thing I did was charge the battery.
With the rapid charger it did take very long at all. I installed the blade to the saw. I looked around my shop and found a piece of thick walled pipe to cut. It cut through the pipe fast and smooth. The allen wrench is stored on the handle of the saw.
Make sure to wear safety glasses when using. There are a lot of chips flying. I would recommend this metal Cutting saw to anyone that has metal to cut. Milwaukee tools are awesome and they have a lot of great tools.
Pros: Accurate, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Powerful.
We used this saw for installing Trex Signature Aluminum railing. The large 8″ blade cuts through the 2 1/2″ square aluminum posts in one pass. The saw does a really good job of catching the metal shavings – probably 75% of them, which is great because aluminum shavings are really hard to clean up.
The user cannot see the saw blade, so you must use the lines on the shoe or measure over to the edge of the shoe (2 1/2″) and use the outside edge of the shoe for a guide. Slightly different workflow compared to using a normal skill saw, but much safer.
The DEWALT DCS391B 20-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Cordless Circular Saw has a powerful 5150 RPM motor that delivers power and speed to make the most demanding cuts with ease. The high strength and lightweight magnesium shoe provides job site durability for prolonged cut accuracy.

Keep your DEWALT 20-Volt power tools powered on the jobsite with an extra battery pack DCB203.
I’ll admit, I was a bit apprehensive about buying this saw. I’m glad, though, I listened to the “other me”, and made the purchase. I purchased this around December, during the “buy the batteries, get a tool” sale.
I’m very glad I did. It’s lightweight, powerful and true. And the battery life is surprisingly long. I’ve used it may times since purchasing, and rarely use my corded circular, at all. The thing I like the most, to be honest, is the weight of the saw.
Even with the 6hr battery attached, it’s amazingly lightweight, which, to me, is important. I’ve yet to cut anything that the 6 1/2” couldn’t handle. As a bonus, the hubby used it, the other day. His remark about it being better than his 7 1/4” corded was all it took for me to know I had made the right choice.
Love this little saw powerful! The DCS565B 20 volt 6. 5”. But why not throw in the rip fence? It’s nearly impossible to find the one for this saw! Not even at Home Depot which is where I purchased! Why don’t they stock it?! It’s such a cheapo move to not include that accessory IMO!!! That’s why subtracted 1 star.
Dewalt offers 2 models of a 6 and 1/2 inch skill saw which are significantly different. The 391b is a sale model but it lacks a brake, a light, a dust port, and a hanging hook. It’s power is questionable.
The unit i purchased was missing the inner blade washer. I made two trips back to the retailer before I got smart and replaced it with the original, non sale, full featured model, which I am quite happy with.

I have been wanting a smaller battery operated circular saw. I did my research and it came down to this and one other. What ultimately decided it for me was that I needed to replace most of my battery operated to tools.
I loved my old set -but after 20 plus years of lots of use – the collets weren’t working and it was time for new batteries. My hands are not as strong as they used to be – so size – weight and battery removal is really important.
I couldn’t pinch my fingers together hard enough to get the batteries off my old kit. Time and time again I found myself in a spot where my project was not portable – and my 5 1/2” circular saw was not able to get into tighter spaces.
I love this 4 1/2” saw. The battery slides on and off with one locking button. The design is slender enough to get into most spaces. Powerful! I purchased more dewalt tools and varying batteries. Quality feel!.
The good. great purpose type saw. Low rpm keeps dust and noise to a minimum. Vaccum port enables use right in the room you’re working. With a proper blade you can cut cement/hardi board with ease. Hook it up to a vacuum and cut it right at the tub/bathroom and keep on working.
On the 20v XR platform which is absolutely the best battery in the business. *****The bad. ***** DeWALT LISTEN up!!!!! You put these great saws in ACE, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. But the blade selection is terrible.
The 3/8″ arbor is no big deal as you can use 10mm blades as well but regardless the box stores basically offer the 24 tooth blade for lumber. This saw will cut lumber but it’s real shining use is on other material like cement/hardieboard, tile, etc.
The problem. bad selection of blades. Example. nobody stocks DWA412PCD. The 4 tooth hardboard blade. Nobody has it in stock. Silly!!!.
As an installer of furniture in NYC, I often times have to modify surfaces to accommodate end users. Traveling in the city with tools is always a burden, so when I saw this saw I thought it would be easier to carry around then my usual 6.
5″. So I bought it. I love this thing. Today I made a “rip” cut on a file bank top to have top the same depth as the files cabinets. I cut through 6 feet of 1. 5″ veneered particle board. I had a 4ah battery on the saw.
Not once did the saw stall or bind. The cut was clean and smooth and with the included detachable adjustable fence, set up for the cut was a breeze. I love this saw. It is now my favorite. My Milwaukee will be put away.
I wish the saw was shorter 17″ is long and had to fit in my work bag.
Makita · Cordless · 4 1/2 inch blade · 5. 5 lb The DCS571 brushless 4-1/2 In. cordless circular saw features a bevel gear design allowing users to cut 2x material at 90 degrees and 1x material at 45 degrees.

Elongated handle optimizes reach for rip cutting OSB (Oriented Strand Board) and plywood. On-board dust port for dust control. Hang hook for increased convenience. Removable auxiliary handle for increased control.
Includes wood cutting blade, blade change key, dust port adapter, rip fence. Bare tool – battery and charger not included.
I had this tool for 2 days and the first time I was gonna use it I couldn’t get the battery to connect half way. I tried several tricks and I other ideas offered by the DeWalt fans. I’ve had a remodeling business for 19 years and always had Dewalt tools but a few years ago I decided to go with Ridgid tools.
The power and not-so smooth operation just wasn’t like Dewalt so in January I decided to spend $8K and a dozen batteries, 15 tools and other items. These new 20v tools are very very poorly designed!!!!! The jigsaw has a plastic guide that doesn’t even fit where it should go, the mini saw doesn’t take any battery, the sawzall has no speed/power selection, the 12” miter saw has several loose fitting pieces that should be a lot more tighter but aren’t and make it maybe in top ten of mitre saws.
Great tool, lightweight and compact. The unit works great with a 5 amp XR battery. The blade guard feels rather light and the trigger safety button is a bit finicky. But it cuts fantastic and tracks nice and is easy to manipulate.
However the The 3/8 arbor is a big fault. Which means finding suitable blades or using other 4 1/2 inch blades at Stores is virtually impossible. There are larger arbor 4 1/2 blades for paneling blades, cut off blades for aluminum, thin gauge metal, ceramic/tile, brick, hardwood trim fine tooth blades etc etc out there but they wont fit this tool.
Dewalt, you have great engineering people making great products. But a 5 cent washer/arbor spacer or adaptor to fit other 4 1/2 blade choices would really make this Atomic 20V Max saw a true home run! I purchased two of these Units and recommending this particular saw would be a straight forward no brainer.
But blade availability options make it only a recommendation with clarification on this particular saw.

Backed by Milwaukee’s 5-Year *, The 2782-20 comes equipped with a 30T 5-3/8″ Metal tech carbide-tipped metal saw blade and blade wrench.
Very nice metal cutting cutting saw! It put a blade for cuttinf aluminum in it and it made quick work of the 1/8 aluminum diamond plate that I was working with. I cut about 30 linear feet total in the diamond plate along with 15 or so pieces of 3/16″ x 2″ aluminum angle.
Saw only used less than half of a high output 3. 0 battery. Easy to keep straight, small enough to be comfortable to work with for longer periods of time but very powerful for its size. Cuts cool and doesn’t leave burrs on the edges of cut.
Faster than a jigsaw with metal cutting blade and much easier to keep straight. The one thing that I see that could be bothersome to some users is the amount of metal chips it produces. Most users won’t be bothered by this, but it is worth mentioning for some.
I highly recommend this saw for anyone that wants or needs quick clean cuts in metals up to 3/16 of an inch thick. Great for cutting EMT or rigid conduit, unistrut and metal studs also. I’m sure that it’ll cut thicker material just as cleanly but it’ll be slower going.
All in all, another great product from Milwaukee!!.
Great little saw. I bought it before doing a metal roofing job where I had to cut 6 different valleys. What I did was make a little wooden track jig that sits on top of the metal and the saw rides evenly above the ridges and cuts wonderfully.
I find myself using the saw alot at the house and shop too since I do quite a bit of work with metal. Great purchase! Wish I had gotten it sooner. My only minor complaint is the saw doesn’t balance well with a larger battery attached and tends to fall on its side when you go to lay it down.
Plunge Circular Saw Delivers Accuracy and PrecisionMakita delivers precise and more accurate cutting with the XPS01PMJ 6-1/2 in. Add on the optional rail guide system (sold separately) for the most accurate cuts and minimal tear-out.
The powerful Makita brushless motor features Automatic Speed Change technology that adjusts cutting speed and torque for optimum performance. This saw delivers speeds from 2,500-6,300 RPM with the variable speed control dial and includes soft start and an electric brake for added convenience.
The XPS01PMJ has a large cutting capacity of 2-3/16 in. at 90 degrees, a bevel capacity of -1 to 48 degrees, and positive stops at 22. 5 and 45 degrees. Ideal for a workshop or job site, this cordless plunge circular saw serves as a more portable option than a table saw for certain applications when used with a rail system (sold separately).
A dual port charger and two 4. 0Ah LXT lithium-ion batteries are included with this kit. The XPS01PMJ features Makita Extreme Protection Technology for your circular saw. Engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions, a protective seal is added inside the tool to repel water and dust away from key internal components.

Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating.
For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
Purchased this kit last fall as my first dive into Makita and now I see why people love them so much. The plunge saw is Intuitive, precise, and powerful. I’ve used it mostly to rip down sheet goods and it has never bogged down whether ripping at 90 or 45 degrees.
I’m not ready to throw my table saw out, but this definitely improved my workflow for many projects. And the kit is really worth it – batteries charge within an hour and last for many sheet ripping sessions, and the included Makpac toolboxes are a nice bonus.
I’ve had this kit for about 5 years now and it has been a true workhorse. From simply breaking down sheets to precise cuts for finish work, this saw does it all. I’ve found that this gets more use on a regular basis than my yltable sawm.
I love that I can walk it to anywhere on the job site and get a clean, accurate cut when precision really counts. without worrying about dragging a cord with me. The batteries are still going strong and I can’t imagine nit having this on my truck ready to go!.
I’ve had my track saw for a couple years now. So glad I got the Makita, and cordless at that. The dual charger is great. I got a promo that included 5 amp hour batteries, which provide plenty of run time.
As other reviewers have said, it’s so good to run the saw through the panel, rather than the panel through the saw. I’ve used it both on site and in the shop. Saves time in both settings. Can’t live without it now!.
The M18 FUEL 5-3/8 in. – 5-7/8 in. metal saw delivers the fastest cuts with the longest tool life and up to 370 cuts in 3/4 in. EMT. This compact and lightweight metal cutting saw utilizes a POWERSTATE brushless motor with 3,900 RPMs to deliver the fastest cutting speeds and longest tool life on the market.
The metal saw also features REDLINK Plus intelligence, the most advanced system of cordless power tool electronics, for maximum performance and unmatched durability. The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 5-3/8 in. – 5-7/8 in.
metal saw features a compact, low-profile design for easy handling and increased control. At only 5. 9 lbs, this lightweight circular metal saw delivers easier overhead cuts and less user fatigue.
This saw is great. Ordered it and immediately started using it that day, and was very impressed by the power this has. Cut through 3/16 angle iron like it was nothing. It actually took me by surprise at how quickly.
it cut. My only complaint is the clear plastic guard on front. If you cut for a while the heat from the sparks build up and it will actually soften and distort the plastic. Not sure if this will cause further issues down the road, but for now it is fine.
This saw is a monster, yet it is so versatile and easy to use. It’s right at 12lbs, uses the popular and dependable M18 batteries. This thing will cut just about any metal you’re going to run into on the jobsite.
Its depth of cut is up to 2-9/16”. So, you can cut steel studs, decking, roofing panels, up to 1” steel plate, 2” steel pipe, 2-1/2’x2-1/2”x1/4” angle iron. It goes through aluminum siding and plate like a hot knife through butter.
All of these while making a smooth clean finish. It has the standard 5/8” arbor, tool included and a place on the saw just for it. The chip container catches most of the chips and there’s a window to check the level of chips in the container.
Emptying is quick and easy by unlatching one latch. There is an overload indicator light on the saw, to let you know when you might be pushing too fast. Let the saw do the work! It has a large and very comfortable handle, with ambidextrous safety switch or lock-off button.
I really like that the shoe has clear markings as to where the blade travels and where the front of the blade is, so there’s no surprises there. The saw has a spindle lock, depth gauge, rip fence slot and depth adjusting lever like other Milwaukee circular saws, but this saw is not the same.
It is a metal sawing beast and I don’t have to wrestle with cords or a generator. Just grab it and go. For those that have used Milwaukee’s corded saws, you know how good they are. Get that and more without the cord.
This kit came with the heavy, well-made contractor bag, the powerful and long last High Output XC8. 0 battery, the Rapid Charger and a blade. Read the manual, there’s always good information in them and then go and enjoy your new saw.
The DEWALT DCK489D2 Combo Kit is ideal for most drilling, driving and cutting applications. This kit includes a drill/driver, impact driver, oscillating tool and compact reciprocating saw. The kit also includes 2 batteries and a charger.
This brushless cordless 4-1/2 in. circular saw comes with 1 blade, rip fence, dust port adaptor and blade change key. The DCS571 features a bevel gear design allowing users to cut 2X material at 90° and 1X material at 45°.
With convenient on-board blade key storage users can change blades with minimal hassle. Elongated handle optimizes reach for rip cutting OSB and plywood.
For the price, this set is amazing. I bought them thinking it would be a nice cheap set for work for random jobs that I need to do. This set isn’t going to cut it for real heavy use in professional settings (i.
e. demolition), but has so far has exceeded my expectations. Portable, tough and smooth. The reciprocal saw cut a 12″ PVC sewer pipe with no issues and I’ve used the oscillating saw to cut 2×4. This set is only marginally more expensive than budget tools I have used in the past, and 100 times better.
Circular Saw delivers cordless cutting power to the job site. The XSS02Z (tool only) has a Makita-built high-torque motor and a compact design for a range of cutting applications, and will cut 2X material at 45 degrees.
The Makita-built high torque motor produces 3,700 RPM for faster cutting. The heavy gauge, precision machined base is engineered for smooth, accurate cutting and added durability in harsh job site conditions.
I bought this after having 14. 4 DeWalt (way-way back) and thought i would give another cordelss saw a go. And i was extremely happy with the performance and ease of cutting the tool provided. It enabled me to not bust out electrical cords when i needed to rip some long boards but didn’t need 20 boards cut- Although I think this could do it with dual-batteries on a full charge.
I am switching out all of my cordless tools to Makita – as having one system makes life simpler!.
Saw came as expected and included blade and rip fence. Plate is good and all bolts work and angle, tighten, and loosen well. Got my batteries and charger elsewhere and confirmed saw works great. Minor negligible damage to the handle but Im totally fine with that.
This 18v Makita Saw was a Fathers Day gift to a pro construction worker. He had been wanting this specific saw for some time because he had used a borrowed one with great pleasure. It has all the features and power desired for his purposes.
He and his son, who has this saw, prefer this saw since it has the blade on the best side/position for a right handed user to accurately see the blade and cut. This higher performance and rpm version (versus lesser models) has power and battery life to work effectively.
Strongly recommend this Specific Makita 18v brushless circular saw.
My “Tool Man” neighbor has a battery-powered skill saw, and together we used it to cut 2X4’s and plywood to repair our roofs after Hurricane Ida knocked us off the power grid for 19 consecutive days, and our generators were dedicated to powering house lights, refrigerators, freezers and room A/C units.
Since I’d already invested in the Bauer line of 20V drills, and had the batterys and chargers already, I got this saw as soon as the local stores re-opened. The kerf blade cuts true and effortlessly, the saw is light and a joy to use; should have bought one before now.
Followed the review posts’ suggestion and bought the 5 Ah battery, too. One caution: his tool has left-handed threads on some of its nuts and bolts – the saw’s blade fastener is the first one you’ll see.
(Hint: Look for the Direction arrows cast into the housing. ) I have two sons who work in Construction, and both tell me that they use battery-powered saws and drills on all their jobsites anymore; and they can carry a smaller gas generator to work because all it does is power their bank of battery chargers.
Cuts down on the need of long extension cords, too.
I recently sold my flatbed trailer, and I knew the plywood I needed wasn’t going to fit in the back of my van as a whole sheet. I grabbed a couple of my 5 amp batteries and headed to harbor freight before swinging by Home Depot.
I picked up this saw only to discover the (1) one, yes only ONE option for blades is a 24T. I was hoping for something more fine since I was picking up a finish piece, but sadly, harbor freight offers only the one blade.
The saw itself is very light weight, I think the battery weighs more than the saw does, and it’s surprisingly quiet. In fact, when I first powered it up I giggled and said “HA! This’ll go well!” But as I started ripping through the 3/4” plywood it had no issues whatsoever, and it did it quietly.
I’m old, I’m old school, I’ve used circular saws for 36+ years, they are loud and angry, and create a symphony of noises as you cut through would, that’s just what they do, but this saw does it with grace.
I made the cuts necessary to fit the wood in the back of my van then went home. At home I decided to use the saw to make several other cuts, just to see how long the battery would last. After I was finished cutting, I pressed the little button on the battery and saw I still had 2 of the blue lights left, so it was ready for more.
As an old school former mechanic/former contractor, I had reservations about the saw, but it’s proven itself worthy of my tool bin. I own acreage off the grid, I’ve taken my harbor freight generator up and used my power tools to do my building, but if I can’t carry my generator and power tools, like a Home Depot parking lot for example, this puppy is coming with me.
I recommend the saw, but if you need more than the one 24T blade option, hit up eBay or Amazon until harbor freight can produce more blade options. It’s a 6 1/2” blade so don’t think you’re going to get through a telephone pole, but for general, quick, portable light cuts, this is my go to.
Pros: •great for portability •great price •decent power for its size •light weight •quiet •relatively battery life friendly Cons: •limited blade options •doesn’t come in a kit option with battery/charger.
I got tired of my Bosch circular saws cord and bulkiness. My one major complaint which is why I have this a 4 star is because the set screw and nut that holds the blade square was completely loose. The nut was barely in the top of the screw.
I don’t have a digital reader to tell me if it’s square or not, but luckily for this first use it was very thin board I was cutting. I will need to pick one up before I use it for thick boards. My other minor complaint is the website isn’t clear that the saw didn’t come with a blade.
Luckily I picked a finer toothed blade elsewhere as I prefer a precision blade. They only offer the 24 tooth on the 6 1/2″ blade at HF. Please get finer toothed blade HF!.
Circular Saw delivers up to 40% more power than circular saws with brushed motors while providing up to 30% more run-time as well. With 5,000 RPM that 2631 provides smooth cutting and at only 9. 0 lbs.
It is lighter than most corded saws. The saw also features an integrated rafter hook, magnesium guards, an aluminum shoe and LED light. M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT CP3. 0 Starter Kit provides 50% more power and runs 50% cooler vs M18 REDLITHIUM CP battery packs.
This increased performance results in the same power and runtime of a M18 REDLITHIUM XC extended capacity battery in a lighter and more compact package.
As stated above, this saw is awesome when it works. I’ve owned this saw since August 2021 and at first I thought this was the true replacement to corded saws until about 3 months ago the trigger just gave out after sitting on the horse for 20 minutes, not even in the middle of a cut.
I took the saw apart and the contacts in the trigger seem fine and clean, all the springs are in place on the safety thumb lever so I put everything back together and it worked perfectly. Then a few days later the same problem happened, being the only saw on my truck, the day was halted until I went home to get my corded saw.
Now I keep both saws in my truck, this one to cut until it decides to take a nap and my plug in to finish the day. no its not a battery problem, I use all Milwaukee batteries xc 5ah 6ah 9ah. its not a binding problem, im not building canoes and I dont push the saw through material, especially if im missing a tooth or two on the blade.
seems like its some thermal overload feature or something that saves the motor or possibly a faulty switch/trigger. Don’t get me wrong I love my m18 framing gun and impact wrenches/drivers, this isn’t a Milwaukee bash.
Just seems like a steep price for a saw that hasn’t even worked flawlessly for a whole year while my corded saw is a hand-me-down from my dad and has a good 25+ years of framing in the rain/snow, demo jobs, ect.
I’m a carpenter so I use my tools regularly. I treat my tools really well, blow them out with an air tool when I’m done for the day. This saw was fine for the times that I did use, though honestly, I haven’t even really used it that much.
It was in my truck tool box, we used it a week ago for just a few quick cuts. It got cleaned and put away in my truck toolbox. Now it won’t start at all. No reason. I have been told Milwaukee has a serious problem with their switches.
My drill has some intermittent stops in the trigger from day one. I’m starting to worry that it may be the plague of Milwaukee switches other carpenters are talking about. Some people have had two switches replaced per year per tool.
I give it two stars because it did work well for the first year, even though it was pretty light use. We do a lot of very high end trim so it’s usually just cutting some boards quickly. I really did not expect this low a quality from Milwaukee.
I’m trying not to spend $700 on a Festool drill, but if this doesn’t get replaced under warranty then the writing is on the wall for my entire series of Milwaukee tools. I’ll sell them all and upgrade.
I’d be real weary and research Milwaukee trigger problems before you purchase and see if it’s something you want to roll the dice on.
I had to add this to my tool arsenal, as I own the m12 circular saw and it just kept bogging down while cutting old subfloor up from our house. Overall this M18 Fuel version is a very solid product and I am extremely happy with it.
It is very well built, well balanced considering it’s size and has enough power to cut through anything from 3/4″ plywood, to OSB, to 1/2″ oak boards nonstop. I’ve even hit quite a few nails with it while cutting subfloor up and it went through them like butter and the blade withstood no damage! Like to Haves: – I was hoping there would be a laser or at least a light to work in conjunction with this.
– If the blade alignment marking on the shoe was a bight color (red) to help it stand out and cut with better results staying on the line without a guide. – The dust shoot could use another attachment that allows the dust to be redirected based on where I would want it to point.
Using this in a house/in a room cutting up old subfloor the saw dust. – I tend to remove the joist/rafter hooks off my products, so if there was a cap that was able to cover this empty area that would be a nice detail.
The cordless compact circular saw is a great tool for making quick, clean cuts in a variety of materials. It is easy to operate and maneuver, and the compact size makes it ideal for use in tight spaces.
The saw is also relatively quiet, making it a good choice for use in residential areas. The saw comes with a blade guard and a rip fence, making it a safe and versatile tool. The only downside to the saw is that it is not as powerful as some of the larger corded models.
