Product Description

From the Manufacturer

When we sat down to design the new line of Rockwell cordless tools, we decided to take the old-fashion approach. We started with the best motor and highest quality internal components we could find. Then we added our own engineers’ addiction to details to make sure that it all came together to create a durable, great performing tool. Of course, what are cordless tools without the battery and charger? So we also developed a unique charging system made up of the PowerTank™ battery pack and the PowerStation charger. These two components work together to give you the longer run times you need and faster charges you expect. This Rockwell 18V cordless circular saw is designed to be easy to control, lightweight and portable. It makes quick work of small jobs and has enough power to manage larger jobs in material up to 1 5/8" thick. The saw comes with a 5 1/2" carbide tipped blade, soft grip handle and built-in dust port. The base can adjust up to 50 degrees to handle bevel cuts.

First of all this saw is Made in China but that hasn't taken away from the quality in the least...All parts fit together closely and the overall saw is of superb quality...

This not a light and small saw...The saw with battery weighs 7 lbs 14 ozs. as verified by my digital postal scale...So if you are looking for a small lightweight trim type saw then you might want to look elsewhere...But for me its perfect...It's balanced very well and the weight allows it to glide through the wood more smoothly...

The base is huge being a full 5"x11" whereas my other 5 1/2" saws are only 5"x9"...And that includes my Pro Skil model HD5510...But again this Rockwell saw outweighs them both by a pound...Also the picture gives the impression the base might be black plastic but it's 5/32 stamped STEEL with a chromium coating...The gearbox housing and blade guards are all aluminum, not plastic along with the motor having ball bearing construction...Even what plastic there is consists of very thick polymer...All of these extra qualities obviously add to the weight which is a fair trade off in my book...

I also like the 3300 rpm motor which is the same speed as the more expensive DeWalt and Milwaukee units...Plus this package has 2 batteries AND full lifetime replacements if they ever fail...The battery guarantee was what really swayed the deal...

Other than ripping a 2x6 Douglas Fir I haven't had a chance to test any hard woods but it did that 2x6 with ease...Time will tell if the motor and gearbox are as tough as the exterior but since there is zero lateral play at the blade shaft I think it will hold up well...

I did go to a retail store and checked out a DeWalt but I liked the balance and trigger mechanism on the Rockwell much better...

Based on the item description and reviews, I assumed that the battery and charger were included with this saw (see description - "batteries included = YES"). Sonic Electronix's website even shows a picture of the battery and charger. Imagine my surprise when it arrived without said battery and charger. Nothing on the box says "Bare Tool Only". And to make matters worse, it's not Amazon Prime so it can't easily be returned. I contacted Sonic Electronix and they said they wouls send a battery. What are the odds that they'll forget the charger? We'll see, I suppose. So be careful!

EDIT Sonic Electronix made everything right by shipping a battery/charger to me. It only took the better part of three weeks, too!

I contacted seller and received the battery about 3wks later. My husband hasn't used it yet. I will post more after we can review the quality of the battery life and use of the saw.

I have no idea how this saw works. I ordered it and the jig saw. When I went to register it I couldn't find a serial number to get the job done. I called and e-mailed Amazon, they kept telling me it was right on the tool, not. Then they advised me to get a hold of Rockwell. I e-mailed and called them several times. They tried to tell me once there wasn't a serial number on them. Asked how do you register it then for the warranty, then I was told it didn't have a warranty (had 2 year plus life time replacement on the battery's). Then I had to call back to Amazon since thats where I got it. This was done and finally they said they were going to sent me the paper work to return both items and send me new ones. This they did. Would you believe when I opened the replacement order it was the same story no serial numbers. So when I got this I called Amazon and they told me they were going to send me the paper work so I could send them back. At one time I had over $700.00 dollars worth of tools setting in my home and couldn't prove they belonged to me. Amazon advised me they were going to put a stop on Rockwell tools until they got it cleared up. At this time you still can't order the saw or the jig saw. Makes you really wonder what Rockwell was doing.
