Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Astonishingly good little saw I expected little better than the old 18v saws when I bought this, to get myself out of a jamb. This saw has been used in every way imaginable, including cutting grout and masonry with abrasive discs attached, and cutting 2" shoulders in white oak for timber frame tenons. The light and blower of the next step up Makita saw would be nice (I am online to buy that one), but, this saw has performed flawlessly for 17 months. Spindle lock and on- board tool storage make blade changes easy, great power for a cordless tool, and durable. My corded circular saws only come out when I have a specific task for the 16 5/16" Makita or the worm drive with the track attachment, the 7 1/4" saws have the same film of dust on their cases as my corded drills. That said, I have several LXT tools and batteries. This would not be the best saw for someone who only has one or two batteries and limited patience. January 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Brought it home, snapped in the battery and started using it right away. It does the job as designed, nothing special. Only issue I have is while using it with my right hand, standing on the left side of it to view the cut, all the dust shoots out at me. Requires a pat down every few cuts. March 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by very useful. the weight of this cordless saw very light after 5 - 6 hours of using it. Didn't make any sore on the arm and easy to use. March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best 6 1/2" I've ever used Great saw for quick work where you don't have power or when you don't want to drag a cord around. Is it as fast and strong as electric? Of course not, but it's better than any comparable cordelss I've used. It's light weight without being too light to where it's hard to keep it straight. The base is smooth, so it glides easily over material. Adjustments are easy to make, and all the controls are easy to see and use. Run time really stands out. I've noticed significantly more work done between charges then the guys I've seen using yellow orange and red. April 22, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not as it seemed This saw didn't fit my existing battery...even though it seemed like it should have. I had to return it and continue to look for a saw compatible with my existing batteries. January 27, 2015
