The circular saw’s power and performance have thoroughly impressed us. It boasts a 15-amp motor that can effortlessly handle even the most challenging cutting tasks.

It delivers a maximum power output of 1,950 watts, translating to an impressive no-load speed of 5,200 RPM. It really makes fast and precise cuts.

Bevel Stops

Based on our test, one of the key features of this circular saw is the two bevel stops located at 45 degrees and 22.5 degrees.  

Thanks to these stops, effortlessly creating precise and swift bevel shapes becomes a hassle-free task, eliminating the need for manual adjustments on the saw. We can effortlessly achieve bevel cuts at various angles, allowing for versatile and accurate cuts.

Additionally, the saw’s maximum bevel volume of 57 degrees allowed us to make angled cuts easily. The bevel adjustment lever, located at the front of the saw, made adjusting the bevel cut capacity a hassle-free task.

Blade Quality and Change

This circular saw features more teeth with high-quality carbide-tipped blades, which are designed to deliver precise cuts with an excellent depth of cut capacity.

During this circular saw review, we tried this tool on wood, plastics, and even the toughest applications, metal, and were still impressed by its performance. 

The saw’s blade can be changed quickly and easily using the onboard blade wrench storage, which provides convenient and easy access to its blade wrench for blade changes. For a detailed guide, here’s how you can change a circular saw blade properly. 


Even though it is one of the lightest circular saws and tools, it is powered by a 15-amp motor, which delivers a high level of torque and speed, allowing it to make clean and precise cuts even through dense materials. 

It has a no-load speed of up to 5,200 RPM, which makes it one of the fastest circular saws in its class. 

The saw’s light design enhances its performance and long life, making it easy to maneuver and control during cutting operations. 


As we conducted this circular saw review, we observed that this great saw is designed with user-friendliness in mind. The saw’s light weight and ergonomic design make it easy to handle, allowing for prolonged use without strain. 

The saw’s handle is comfortable to grip, and its balanced design ensures that it is well-suited for both right and left-handed chainsaw users. 

Safety Features

Our team was amazed by this lightweight circular saw safety features. The dust blower feature integrated into the saw guarantees a clear line of sight and blade visibility while cutting. 

We also noticed it’s a tough corded saw against cord pullouts, reducing the risk of electrical hazards.

The circular saw’s sturdy and durable high-grade aluminum base ensures enhanced stability and control while cutting, minimizing the possibility of accidents due to the saw’s slippage or loss of balance.

Price and Warranty

While it may be slightly more expensive than other lightest saws, its high-quality construction, high-powered motor, and user-friendly features make this lightweight circular saw a worthwhile investment.
