Rated 4 out of 5Â by woodwormer Nice peice of kit
Bought this saw for a specific job - recladding the outside of the house with cedar shiplap. Very nice tool, lightweight, accurate, easy to use. I agree with the 2 other reviewers - two batteries would have been nice, but then so is an enforced teabreak ! The other slight niggle is that it is opposite handed to my other two 240V workshop saws - i.e the table is on the right. Getting used to it though. I can't comment on reliability as I have only used it for a month, but so far no problem. All in all, value for money, and I would recommend it for light to medium work.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great bit of kit
Using this on a daily basis. Plenty of power and very light weight. I use it instead of my corded circular saw as it's so much lighter and worrying about where the cable is is no longer an issue.
Had to buy the extra battery which I think should be supplied initially. Use it to cut worktops, sheet material internal doors etc. Depth of cut is a little shallow, could do with being 2 mm deeper. but all in all it's a main stay part of my tool kit now.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Technocrat Good value cordless saw
I bought this saw to trim doors, cut kitchen kick plates and laminate flooring. Saw works well. The saw blade gives a fine cut. The saw has all the power that I need for this type of work.
Two minor complaints. It would have been better if the saw were supplied with two batteries and the depth of cut (on my example) just fails to go through a standard internal door.
Having had a moan I must say that the saw is a delight to use and I tend to use it in preference to my corded Makita circular saw even in the workshop. It is great for cutting sheet material even 18mm. It is so convenient not to have a cable to worry about.
I have marked reliability as average as I have not had the beast long enough to assess it.
