What We Like
What We Don't Like
A small circular saw design that is a combination of 7 different saws may sound like a dream to most, but it raises some concerns for others that our experts will put to rest. The saw is very easy to use and comes with three different blades. The lightness and small size also give you more maneuverability and ease of use to create precision cuts. The Rotorazer Compact Circular Saw can also come in different colors.
Rotorazer Motor Power
Our experts in this Rotorazer Compact Circular Saw review speak about the impressive power generated from such a small body. The motor is 480W at over 4200 RPM, or revolutions per minute. Compared to a full-sized saw, the tiny model does lack some power, but for simple DIY jobs, it is more than enough. The Rotorazer can slice through different materials up to half an inch thick with minimal issues.
Weight & Ease of Use
Of course, with such a small profile, one would expect a lightweight and easy-to-use saw, which is what the Rotorazer saw is. Our experts were impressed with the mere 6.85 pounds and the relatively easy to grip handle. Even though it’s a corded model, the Rotorazer Compact Circular Saw still offers lots of room for movement because of the small size.
Blade Sizes and Type
Aside from the motor, a saw is only as good as its blade. The Rotorazer saw comes with three blades, the diamond blade, tungsten carbide blade and also a high-speed steel blade all meant for different purposes. Our team stresses using the correct blade for the materials you plan on cutting to prevent the blade from sticking.
The tungsten carbide blade is our experts’ recommendation for wood materials and the diamond blade is excellent for ceramics, tile, and marble. Lastly, our experts like to use the high-speed steel blade for metals. All the blades measure in at 85mm.
The cutting depth for these blades is adjustable and the capacity for the blades are materials no thicker than half an inch.
Cutting Capacity & Depth
Since the Rotorazer comes with multiple blades, you can easily change them out with the quick blade-change feature.
Our team saw no problems with carpet, metals, glass, and anything else you may need to cut through for your DIY project.

As a convenient hand tool, the Rotorazer saw is highly maneuverable and can cut in any direction. You would move the saw to accommodate the material rather than the other way around with larger stationary power tools.
Rotorazer Dust Collection
A good dust collection system built into power tools can help decrease cleanup time, which is very important to our experts. The Rotorazer Compact Circular Saw comes with a dust extraction system that will work while you go, clearing a path for your line of vision. The dust collection system will also reduce the amount of debris you breathe into your lungs, making it safe for long-term use .
A proper dust collection system also minimizes the chances of dust getting lodged in small nooks and crannies, and building up over time.
The Rotorazer handheld saw comes with three different blades for multiple applications, a carrying case, dust collector, and blade guard. It is seven saws in one small handheld option!
The Rotorazer comes with a blade guard with a release lever. This nifty feature will keep your fingers safe as you cannot operate the saw without first releasing the blade guard. Since there is virtually no limit to the cutting capacity and direction, our experts say the blade guard will increase the safety of the saw especially when you’re busy moving it around.
As such a lightweight model, the Rotorazer saw is highly portable. It fits into the palm of your hand and is only 6.85 pounds measuring in at 17.44x 9.57x 4.76 inches. You can get an idea of how compact it is. The saw can fit easily into your work bag and not add any extra weight to your shoulders.
As a corded model, it may not offer the same range of motion as a cordless one, but our team members felt that the cable length is long enough not to hinder your movement and you won’t need to worry about charging the saw before moving to the next job site.
Rotorazer has customer support ready to assist you should any problems arise. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee just in case the saw isn’t up to your expectations. There is also a 1-year manufacturer warranty that the customer support is more than happy to uphold.
Is the Rotorazer saw any good?
Yes, the Rotorazer saw is good. The Rotorazer is a handheld model that is essentially seven saws in one. This increases the versatility of the item and gives you a ton of freedom for maneuverability. You can cut from any direction and through any material.
