for a circular saw like this, you get a lot of speed in a small package, this is far more portable than my heavy 7-1/2" circular saw, I would still keep my large saw for the heavy duty cutting, depths greater than 3/4". I used the Sawmax to make quick work of an old broken down hollow core door, by slicing it up into small pieces to go into a trash barrel. This is a very appropriate use of this tool and not my 7-1/2", as the larger saw has too much torque and would have required to clamp the door down. While this unit has a lot of speed, it has very little torque, meaning no turns or it will slow down or stop. My only complaint would be that the handle, for whatever reason, gets very hot to hold onto after extended use. I certainly noticed it when cutting the door. For intermittent use, it should be okay. I have a wood blade and metal blade.

I got it for Father's Day and it's been very useful however the fact that it has no blade cover like my worm gear tends to make my wife a little nervous which I guess is a good thing D

This saw worked well for metal cutoff. It's small enough to handle with one hand and cuts quickly.

Using the tool last 6 months. The tool is easy to use. But the life of the Blade is poor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thebighash A very handy tool for home use
The Dremel 6A Saw Max Tool is a very handy tool that can be used to cut different types of material.
Size & Design:
The size and weight of this saw are reasonable and allow handling with ease. The tool is well designed and fits in your hand like a glove. This allows you to cut with confidence.
This saw is corded (runs on 110V) and the cord length is approx 6ft. The tool is powerful enough for most home projects.
The tool feels sturdy and of good quality. It comes with a 2 year warranty which gives me more confidence and assurance. I have had it for a few days only and I cannot comment on its durability.
My first test of this saw was to cut an opening in drywall (check the pics). Cutting was a breeze but it produced an unbelievable amount of dust, whereas a cleaner job could've been performed using a manual jab saw / drywall saw. Of course this was just a test so it doesn't matter, but something to keep in mind if you plan to cut through drywall in a furnished home.
What's in the box:
My saw came without a case for storage/transportation. I also received only two wheels: one for metal and one for wood/plastic. The picture of the product on the HD site shows two more wheels: one for tile and one multipurpose. This could just be because I received this product through the Seeds program. I received no other accessories.

The saw was ready to use. It was exactly what I had been looking for and had not been able to find elsewhere.

Have all the tools in the world but, this was one of the best purchases I have made. Was redoing my pantry and had to made a lot of plywood cuts and this made it a breeze. Not having to drag out my bigger tools was great! Am looking forward to using it on other types of projects. I also sent my brother in law a text about this tool. A must have for anyone.

I bought the SM-20 to do some finesse tile trimming in a bathroom renovation. I felt the tool worked extremely well. It was easy to hold, light in my hand and allowed for the control needed for a very fine straight cut. The only thing I felt could be improved was the direction of air flow. As it is currently configured the flow of air blows directly toward my face and eyes. Even with eye protection, I'd prefer the flow move under the tool toward the rear of the tool. In fairness to Dremel, they do have a slot for an attachment that would allow a shop vac to pull away residual dust; however, that was not available locally without going online to purchase it. I would have made the purchase if it was available as I am very keen on keeping my eyes, ears, and throat protected from the hazards associated with cutting.
