Who amongst just does not have one of these bad boys? This is my circular saw. I have it for years. It is powerful. It is heavy. It has got a seven on a quarter inch diameter blade and it has got this big cord that powers it. But what if I told you that there were other circular saws out there that did just as many things as this one did but they are lighter, there is powerful, they have got a smaller diameter blade and they can work without a cord. There is not just one type of circular saw. I have got two here for you, two for one special.
They look practically identical and in many respects they are but one of this tools is in 18-volt and one is a 24-volt cordless. Now, what is the difference? The bigger the number, the more power you have. So, depending on what type of job you have got to plan around your home, make sure you purchase the right saw.
If you remember before, I talked about the blade diameter. These cordless saws have a six and a half inch diameter blade that is 20 of saw blade to cut thick materials such as 2 x 4 to 2 x 6.
You are already in leveled cordless tools. I love this cordless circular saw. they make great gifts anytime of year. Buy one for yourself maybe for a loved one and remember, cordless tools, they are cutting edge.
