Customer Reviews

15 Amp 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with Laser is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Really Solid Worker In-store I bought a light-weight saw, which I returned a few days later. So I went online and read a bunch of reviews carefully before choosing a different saw. This one is a definite keeper. The laser is very helpful and easier on the eyes than watching my Sharpie pen line. The saw is hefty, but not unwieldy, and the plate is solid/wide enough for good support/control, even with narrow or angled cuts. The blade cuts cleanly, quickly, with no kickbacks, and the noise level is good. Would like an improvement on the locking lever for raising/lowering the blade cutting depth -- it is awkwardly located and to adjust. To do an angle cut, the locking knob is fairly tight -- hope it will loosen with use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cut like butter only used it to cut a 4x8 sheet of treated plywood and a couple treated 2x4s but it cut real smooth.especially liked the laser on the plywood, a lot easier to keep a straight other 40 year old saw quit. had to replace it and wanted something that didn't cost an arm and a leg as I'm not a builder or contractor. the price was right, the saw had the extra features I wanted and the bag was a bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like it should Laser is spot on and everything lines up as it should. Had just returned a new Rigid saw that was more expensive. The laser was way off the cut line and to cut a straight up 90 degree cut you had to set the base plate on 12 degrees. Nothing right about that saw but the slightly cheaper Skil works great. Good quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it.. powerful and straight. Laser is good too I've used this several times on some laminate flooring as well as mouldings on my house and a condo I own. IT does the job for me - very pleased with it. I installed a diablo 60th blade on it for a smoother cut and it's working very nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bang 4 the buck This is a very good saw 4 the price. Very powerful cuts rite threw heavy wood without bogging down plenty of amps. Love the laser line very accurate. case is well made and it even comes with a free framing blade.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skillsaw model 5680-2 Laser and blade misaliened UNCORRECTABLE I bought this saw because it has a laser.The laser is off 1/8 of an inch and CANNOT BE ADJUSTED ! The foot of the saw is also off making 90 degree cuts 1/8 inch to long,again you cannot correct the problem.The blade of any saw should align with the ,90 degree,cutting guide notch.I have used a variety of saws, left and right bladed saws,wormdrive,brick and tile,compound miter saws all are accurate an most are adjustable. Home Depot specifications say this saw has a dust blower and spindle lock,THIS MODEL DOES NOT HAVE SPINDLE LOCK or DUST BLOWER.I have discovered multiple product description errors by Home Depot ,and now go manufactures site to get accurate description. This saw is not sold in store and must be ordered online. My saw arrived within a week. The saw has some nice features,10.2 lbs in weight, 15 amps and easy to use bevel and depth control.It's inaccuracy of 1/8 inch make it useless to me. I needed a saw and did not have the time ,two or more weeks, needed to return saw and receive replacement. I returned saw to Home Depot and bought a ,in stock at store, Dewalt model DWE575SB from Lowes . Dewalt cost more but is only 8.8 lbs and very accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The laser is a great feature. Great saw for the price! Nice storage and carrying bag, too. The saw does a great job in cutting. I was impressed. I have used several saws over the years in building sheds and additions, even barns. This one is light weight, but heavy enough to do the job. It has safety features to make you think and still flexible to cut the right angle and depth. Great saw for the part time builder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Electrical Brake This is my first circular saw so I'm no expert. But, after spending probably too much time researching various saws this one seemed like it had a good feature set for the price. Now that I have it in hand it definitely seems sturdy and powerful. The only downside was the fact that it is listed as having an electrical brake, but it does not.
