Nice Saw for Small Jobs
A good saw for use in small projects or in locations away from power outlets. It won't compete with 18/24v saws, but a nice addition for M12 tool users. Don't expect to go all day or make very fast cuts, that's not what it's for. Also, you need to use a 3 or 4 Ah battery to not be frustrated with its power consumption. You won't like it if you expect to get by using the standard 2 Ah M12 batteries.

Best 5-3/8 Circular Saw to date.
This is my favorite circular saw. I have 2 other cordless circular saws and I would pick up this M12 Fuel one over the others any day. It is more powerful then all the 18v brushed circular saws that I've had the chance to use. The only time I would choose a different tool is because of the cut capacity. I am invested in the M12 line and looking forward to more M12 Fuel tools.

Great saw for the price
I picked up the saw due to doing a home renovation. The saw is great for doing quick cuts right on the spot. It's so light and portable you can go anywhere with it. My only complaint is currently I only have the original 12v batteries and they don't last long when ripping OSB. Picked up the newer bigger battery and works like a charm

Just what I needed
I work as a grounds manager for a summer camp and the M12 tools have made my life much easier. The weight and power can't be beat. This saw does everything I need it to do and more. I would make sure you get the extra capacity battery for this item.

powerful, light weight saw, a winner
This is a great saw with power to spare. It can handle 2x4's with ease. This saw is very light and is more than adequate for the work I do around the home. It being so light takes the fatigue out of ripping 2x4's and plywood. If I need to cut larger lumber than 2x4's, or need to cut outdoors for an extended period of time, I will bring out my AC powered 7 1/4 inch circular saw. Great combination of weight and power. It would have been nice if it came with a guide to attach to the frame since it has the attachment points for it. I use it with the XC4.0 batteries which should give it plenty of cutting time (have not verified this yet, though).

Excellent tool
I use the saw for jobs around the farm, building and repairing fences and stock shelters etc. It has worked flawlessly, plenty of power and battery life is amazing which is very important to me as I'm away from electrical outlets most of the time.

Useless
Bought this saw for light carpentry and when fully charged would only cut about 12" of a piece of plywood before battery died. Would not buy this again.

Can I use my battery for this? #48-11-2401
Craziedusa on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all the M12 batteries will work, thought you'll probably want a bigger battery, or more than on of those if you are doing a lot of cutting.

What is the depth of cut for the 5 3/8" circular saw?
JoeCarpentor on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depth of cut is advertised as 1.5". I've actually found it a TINY bit
deeper than that, which has come in handy occasionally. Like maybe 1/16th
over that. So approximately 1.563"

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
