Titan TTB287CSW 235mm Circular Saw 230V
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.

Rattles like a tin can
A lot of reviews said how good this was so not having one before went for this , big mistake , noisy and cuts 150mm x 50mm no better than my jigsaw, got it for a decking project to get straight cuts on the boards/joists , not impressed 3mm out on all cuts even with clamping a baton to run against

Lets face it - when you buy 'cheap' it normally works cheaply. Imagine my supprise to see this bit of kit doing everything I've asked of it so far - it's going through the sleepers I'm cutting like a hot knife through butter!
The only thing wrong with this bit of kit is it hasn't got a 'brand label' that everyone instantly recognises but if they keep making kit like this, they soon will have!!

dont buy it
Bought this as i have good tools from titan but this let me down.poor build, blade has movement causing kickback and bad cuts.
