Rated 5 out of 5Â by RMFSERVICES TOP NOTCH SAW
HAVE BOUGHT LOTS OF CIRCULAR SAWS IN THE PAST BUT THIS IS TOP QUALITY AND WELL WORTH THE MONEY. AS YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A WORLD LEADER OF ELECTRIC PROFESSIONAL POWER TOOLS.
HAS A LONG LEAD AND A GOOD BLADE BUT WILL BE UPGRADING THE BLADE AS I DO A LOT OF FINE CUTTING AND DETAILED WORK AS A KITCHEN FITTER. TOP SAW AND WELL WORTH THE MONEY.10/10

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Diyman Not a bad saw
The quality of the build is fairly good and all the features you need for a skill saw. I rarely use the guide but choose to run up against a straight edge for trimming doors etc.
I had a problem with the saw running off the straight edge and after investigation found that the steel base edge wasn't parallel to the blade.
Using a vernier for measurement bent the back pivot on the base to align with the blade.
It is now working perfectly for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Danbyman Quality saw
Bought this to replace my 25yr old Black & Decker saw that has been a really good saw. If the Dewalt performs as well as the old one does I will be a happy man. up to now its been a nice saw to use, nice and light, not too noisy and very stable.

I've only recently bought this DeWalt Circular Saw after looking at many others and their reviews. It doesn't come in a case, which is why I gave 'value' a 4*. Can't say what reliability will be like, but DeWalt tools are usually extremely good.
I think the instructions and diagrams could have been better arranged for clarity to set up the saw and check out it's features. I think it's well balanced in use, is easily adjustable and I like the way the cut line is blown clear for viewing during the cut.
My experience to date with this saw only extends to cutting down some oak doors and it was so easy to cut straight even without the fence being fitted. I haven't fitted the vacuum attachment as it won't fit my machine, but I didn't have any trouble with the saw dust.
The build quality is great and adjustments for depth and angle very easy.
This is a nice powerful saw, which enables smooth and easy cuts. It's great and priced competetively.
