ATOMIC 20V MAX* Brushless Cordless 4-1 2 in Circular Saw Tool Only

Among the homeowner saws we tested, this one is about as close to pro-grade as you can get. And given what it costs and its price-performance ratio, it would be fitting for a contractor to keep this saw on the truck as a backup or a tool. It’s going to replace dewalt circular saw my full-size circ saw in my truck, since I don’t have a true need for something that large on electrical jobs. It’s definitely powerful enough for me to use on any job I currently need it for, and the compact size makes it a plus for stowing in my work truck.

Some irregular shaped or oversized items may include a special handling charge. The charge will show in the cart during the check-out process on any applicable products. Brushless motors — like those on some DEWALT cordless circular saws — add power while extending the life of the tool. Other features available from many brands include laser guides, dust blowers and electric brakes for added safety. This Kobalt multi-material cutter is the perfect addition to your tool cabinet.

The motor delivers 5,300-RPM for greater speed, while the 51° bevel with positive stop at 45° allows for a range of angled cuts with the durable carbide-tipped blade. The single-beam laser cut line ensures accuracy, and the dust blower increases visibility while cutting. The lower guard provides dewalt circular saw smooth, snag-free operation and narrower cut-offs, while the lightweight design allows you to work for longer durations with less fatigue. Vital safety measures include a power-on indicator and a safety lock/guarded trigger to prevent accidental starts, giving you peace of mind on the jobsite.

This DeWalt Sledgehammer was essential during our hardwood floor removal – I absolutely LOVED wielding this thing. It was lightweight enough for me to manage, yet it packed a powerful punch. I think this is an absolute game-changer for saw technology and I hope to see it adopted as an industry standard across all circular saws.

The blade sits off to the right side of the tool while both grips sit off to the left as you’re holding it. This means that neither hand has to reach over the top of the tool to secure with the auxiliary grip. Yes, the Craftsman’s motor is a bit smaller than the Skil in terms of its amperage, but the cutting performance between the two tools is negligible. Fortunately, if you apply a little extra due diligence, you can keep the saw cutting true. Electricians don’t often need a full-sized circular saw, more often than not we’re either cutting sheetrock or studs, so this little saw does a great job of dealing with small cuts like this.

There’s also an auto start/stop ignition for quick one-hand ignition. The applications for this tool are also wide – use it to kill weeds, solder, braze, and bend metal, burn designs onto wood, and more. It’s clear after the first cut that this saw is built for power and speed when using the FLEXVOLT 60v battery.
