Titan TTB287CSW 235mm Circular Saw 230V
Great value for money
I bought this circular saw to replace my old one. Immediately from unboxing it i noticed the good build quality of the product and its fantastic carry case albeit rather bulky.
Over the weekend i built a home made table saw using this at its heart. Its first project was to slice 50 long decking boards in order to remove the grooved surface to flatten them out as i wanted to board up the loft and had these from the patio i revently pulled up which I didnt want to waste. Once the table saw was setup correctly this curcular saw ripped through the planks with no issues at all, it was like cutting through butter with a hot knife, and it left a very nice finish (no need for sanding) thanks to the many teeth on the blade. I guess the only thing that would make this product perfect would be to include an addaptor to attach a vacuum to in order to reduce the saw dust. But a great priduct at a great price. I would definitely recommend this to diy'ers alike. I'm unable to comment on reliabilty as i have not had it long but have no doubts this will last a long time.

Solid bit of equipment
Great piece of kit, I would say leans more towards the professional than the DIYer. More than powerful and big enough for 'around the house jobs' My main use was for fencing and decking, more than adequate. Only downside for me is that it was a little heavier than I expected. Price was very good, flexibility was surprisingly good.

Tough piece of kit
I rigged this upside down in a portable workbench to use it as a table saw. The base plate fit perfectly into the groove in the workbench. Not an idea solution, but it worked perfectly in an emergency.

Waste of Time
I'm surprised by the many positive reviews here. Bought this saw to rip large timbers. Powerful, BUT several problems within just a few hours of simple ripping softwood:
- Aluminium side rail bent!
- Side rail clamp slipped repeatedly
- Aluminium base bent!
- Didn't cut at 90 degrees presumably as base bent
- doesn't eject dust - just clogs up so had to stop to free it every 30secs. might be better with an extractor but doubt it.
- Worked better cutting at half depth but not much
Just not up to the job unfortunately so it's gone back. Will save up for a top brand.
