Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DITdidItrythat Great! Used exclusively for stone cutting so far
I bought this to use for cutting Unilock wall block for a DIY wall project. I have the Ryobi one+ circular saw but it's a smaller blade and I honestly thought whatever I used on the wall project would get burned out by the time I was done. So I actually bought this with the intention of using it once.
I also bought the Avanti Pro 7 in. Turbo Diamond Blade to go with it. At $55 total it was still less than renting a stone saw and it gave me flexibility on the time I took to complete the job. So being a "throw away" saw didn't feel so bad.
Not only did it complete my project with ease, I loaned it to a friend who used it to make all the edge cuts on a 20X20 Unilock paver patio. Probably 100+ paver cuts. And for what it's worth that was still with the original blade, which was a bonus.
After all that it still works and looks good as new! Never bogged down on cutting stone, but make sure you have the right blade for the job, with the right blade it should be powerful enough for most things.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Blade Clutch too loose
Saw works great EXCEPT to blade clutch won't let the motor power go to the blade....take 10 minutes and disable the clutch and you will have a nice saw for the price

This is everything a small circular saw should be, light weight and easy to use and not too loud.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScottJ Ryobi 13amp Circular Saw
Bought this saw to replace the Makita I owned and had to give sway when we moved.
I must say this saw is much lighter and has faster start up power than the Makita.
It is much easier to handle as well.
I just hope it holds up and isn't another cheap Chinese product so many former quality manufactures have turned into

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jp1987 Decent Saw for the Price
Being a carpenter by trade I have used a lot of different brands of saws. This saw is a great saw for a DIYer but would not recommend for daily constant use. But for the price you cant hardly beat it. Definatly buy a better blade than the one that is included. Dont even try to use that one its total junk. Saw preforms 100 times better with a decent blade.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Radek Very average but at least cheap
I find it very noisy, it kicks back and tends to get off the cut line even when you use a guide. I used it mainly for plywood so far and I find it powerful enough for the job.
