Hitachi C9U2 235mm Circular Saw 240V
Excellent and powerful saw
Bought this for a roofing job at home. Cuts through 6 x 3 timber like a knife through butter. Well worth the money. Only gave it 3 stars for reliability as I have not had it for long.

Bought this to cut some wet treated timber. Ripped a 4.2m 6x2 without a blink..

Sadly no brake on the saw so it takes a while to stop spinning.

The base is really sturdy and well made.
Biggest criticism is the length of the cable, it is pathetically short.
