Use converter

Drawing 1440 watts, will this saw work well using a converter attached to the truck battery for a power source? JT
Asked by: JT
This will need a 2000+ watt converter for it to work using that power source.

how do I engage the spindle lock

Asked by: Patrick
OK Patrick, it is easy to find, but first, a safety rule: UNPLUG THE SAW BEFORE CHANGING OR TIGHTENING THE BLADE. It's smart to wear a glove on the hand that is close to the blade; they don't feel very sharp until you slip and drag the heel of your hand across the teeth. If you hold the saw as if using it, there's a back and front grip. The flat topped rectangle (spindle lock) is immediately to the right of the front grip. When changing blades or tightening, you hold the button down. It doesn't lock in place. It keeps the spindle from moving while you use the wrench with the other hand. Please never press this button while the saw is in motion. I work with sharp stuff every day and so far still have all my fingers. Changing that is one careless moment away.

12-Amp 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 142.
Date published: 2014-04-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent price for a brand name saw For the price this is a excellent DIY saw. the only thing to do is throw away the blade that comes with it and put in a better blade like a Freud. It cuts a lot better with the Freud blade and uses less power to get thru a 2x4. Rememer this is only a 12 amp saw. It is not made to be used all day long. If your a professional and need a powerful saw, buy one with more amps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It did the job I was a little intimidated, but this turn out to be a very user friendly tool for a female.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Lightweight and easy to use for nominal usage. Great tool for the non-commercial user.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bad Bad Home Depote! Just got home from purchasing this from HD on 23rd St. in Manhattan. Clearly this item was used and returned; or has been refurbished. Hard to imagine that saw dust was part of the production process. But it still works great for the money. The blade that comes with this item is JUNK. Do not waste your time trying to use it spend the money to get a real cutting blade.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from this is not a heavy duty saw but a fair value for the price for low use saw this is not a heavy use saw, good for the occasional use person

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall good saw I got this saw for small projects around the house and its been a good saw for just that. The only downfalls are the blade that comes with it isn't all that great I would recommend buying another blade when you buy the saw. Also it's very loud louder then most saws I've used. For the money it's a good saw and I would recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor had to buy n ew blade to try to cut a 2x4, not good
Date published: 2014-05-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw for DIY projects I bought the saw for a small floor cut-out and replacement. The saw's light weight made it easy to handle while making several pocket cuts to pry the bad floor from the joists. Great for small jobs like this, but a heftier saw would be better for bigger jobs requiring multiple cuts on 2x's and larger lumber

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light, simple, and cheap Just a cheap, simple saw that works. Has enough power to do the job and is lighter than most. I actually prefer the trigger to "better" saws because its lighter and doesn't have one of those safeties.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice lil circular saw Not sure how it would work for big jobs but it's excellent for honey-dos and small jobs around the house. Pleased with the purchase saw did what it was supposed to do. I would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable This one came as part of a set and I didn't think I would use it ... I was wrong! This is a very portable little saw, I can take it to my truck to trim! Now I love it! Just have a spare battery, it will use up a charge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good saw for price This is the 2nd one I've purchased from Home Depot.The first failed a bearing on the motor rotor;however, gave good service.. I used it a lot to cut metal with a metal cuttung abrasive blade & I believe dirt got into bearing causing failure. I like the rotor lock to use when changing blades.. Great value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good purchase It's contours are comfortable and the placement of grips, accessories and other convenience items are logicle. This drill has the power for all of my around-the-house projects and I was able to get it at a great day after thanksgiving sale price. This is a great pickup, of a serviceable name brand tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good saw I purchased this saw on line for store pickup and it was advertised as having a 10ft power cord and a 20 tooth carbide blade. This is false. it has a 6ft cord and a steel throw away blade. It is still a good saw at a reasonable price even being misrepresented. It performs well at the jobs I use it for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from died 3 months in Bought this saw to replace a B&D 7.25 inch saw. It work fine for three months. Laser works good and so does light. Motor armature went bad. Checked and cleaned the brushes and nothing. Wont buy this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works for my purpose I was thinking to buy Ryobi Circular saw with laser, but thanks to the clerk Home Depot at Noth Ave, Chicago, IL, I bought cheaper at the same time it served my purpose to cut some small stuff as I'm a beginner DIY person. Making shelves and small things, this one is good enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and Excellent Price I bought this for small projects in my home and i highly recommended it.
Date published: 2013-12-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great first saw for a 'first saw' price Circular saws are pretty simple. This one isn't too fancy, so it would be a great one for a beginner or great if you're hard on tools and don't want to spend a lot of money replacing each time. I think this thing was like $60-$70. Very reasonable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has great features This product was just the right size for me to handle. I have enjoyed using it. Most of the saws are too large and heavy for me. I will use this often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I bought one and made a cut on a piece of 4 x 8 x7/16 siding. The motor cuts out intermittently, also sounds like the bearings were bad from the factory. I'm going to try and return it to purchase a Skil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw for any Do-It-Yourselfer This Saw is and excellent saw for any do-it-yourselfer i use the saw for my woodworking shop because it is a very precise circular saw and 12 amps of power is plenty enough power to cut through 2X lumber.
Date published: 2009-07-26
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's OK in a pinch for a home owner with minimal usage. You have to know what your buying. I would never have purchased this particular saw when I was younger. But now, I rarely have need of a power/circular saw so I went for "cheap!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grate little saw Works as you would expect. Grate backup saw. would make a grate gift for the first timer.
