Rated 5 out of 5 by Makita 18v Circular Saw I really enjoy my Makita Saw. It is portable yet strong enough to cut through 2x stock. I can make many cuts before reverting to another battery. Which only takes about 1/2 hour per recharge. I know there are other quality cordless tools out there, but I like the feel, quality, and production from my Makita tools. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tool and Light weight I already had the makita Li-Ion drill and wanted the circular saw for a long time. I was excited to see they sold the tool only online. I used it for the first time a few days ago and couldn't be happier. It ships with a blade, is easy to adjust, is light weight and is just a joy to use. One thing to note, it does not allow the use of the "compact" 1.5Ah batteries like the drill kit comes with. You MUST use the 3.0Ah battery. The 3 amp battery can also be used on your makita drill however. These tools Rock. The batteries are MUCH lighter and the tools in general are much lighter than other brands. The batteries can go a very long time without really discharging, they charge SUPER fast (15 min/30min depending on battery size) so I have never been in a situation where I couldn't work because I was waiting for batteries to charge. I use my tools all day long so these features where important to me. Absolutely worth the money. February 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw! I have used a lot of Circular saws over the year, but this one is by far the best. It is very easy to control and super smooth. I used it last weekend to cut beadboard panels and all the cuts were perfect. For 3/4" Marine Plywood, use the 16T blade that comes with it... But for everything else, get a 24T or 40T blade. I like the Diablo blades myself. You will not be disappointed with this saw! May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Purchased circular saw to have an easy to use , more light weight, no cord tool and it is absolutely fabulous. Purchased circular saw to have an easy to use , more light weight, no cord tool and it is absolutely fabulous. LOVE IT! However.....due to marketing you have to purchase another battery for this particular tool for an additional 100.00. The battery that comes with the drill and other tools is not interchangeable.
