At a Glance
Rockwell VersaCut
The Rockwell VersaCut is a compact circular saw that's easy to control with just one hand (view larger).
Powerful Mini Circular Saw
The Rockwell VersaCut possesses the power of a large, bulky, and heavy circular saw in a compact, well-balanced, lightweight design. Make professional-looking results in wood, flooring, plastic, ceramic tile, metal, and more using exclusive Laserguide technology that indicates a precise cutting line. And thanks to its small size, the VersaCut gives you power and accuracy in tight areas that cannot be accessed by regular circular saws.

Professional-Style Results with Just One Hand
The VersaCut—equipped with a 4-amp motor—provides professionals and everyday do-it-yourselfers alike with the fantastic-looking results; users can make perfect rip cuts and plunge cuts with assistance from Laserguide technology that ensures users won't have to measure a cut twice (saving time and money). A dust extraction adapter that keeps the cut line clear of dust further improves visibility. And unlike most saws, the VersaCut is designed to cut through materials thicker than 1 inch.

Streamlined Silhouette
Thanks to an extremely slim design, the VersaCut provides you with better control—and its ergonomically balanced design with rear-motor construction improves user comfort and decreases fatigue. The lock-off switch prevents accidental starting, and the durable full metal inner and outer guard design extends product life. Quick access to the depth-adjustment lever allows you to move the indicator to the desired depth and lock the mechanism with ease.

What's in the Box
One Rockwell RK3440K VersaCut circular saw with one 24T carbide-tipped blade for cutting wood, one 44T HSS blade for cutting aluminum and PVC, one diamond blade for cutting ceramic tile and cement board, one no-mar plastic base plate cover, one parallel guide, one vacuum adapter and one carrying bag.

I have been a pro cabinet and finish carpentry contractor for most of 30 years. I bought this saw after my little Makita battery operated trim saw crapped out. I never did like that saw from the start, it was too weak for professional use and kicked back on plunge cuts EVERY TIME unless I held it with a death grip.

This Rockwell saw is very well made. Fit and finish are very good. The handle is a little big for me, and I have average size mitts. Nevertheless, it is easy to control. The laser guide is pretty cool, I have never been one to use laser guides before, I almost always set up a straight edge guide for accuracy.

I also like the fact the blade is on the left side of the saw like a worm drive. This is completely natural for right handers like me, and you can see your cut a lot more easily. Why "sidewinders" have the blade on the right has never made sense, in my humble opinion.

Others have mentioned the carrying bag which is very convenient for throwing a jig saw in with the Rockwell. Very cool.

The two "BUTS" I have are somewhat serious. The first is the footplate is spring loaded with a fairly heavy spring which means you have to press the plate down rather firmly to expose the saw blade for cutting. Good safety feature I suppose, especially for plunge cuts, but I would prefer a blade guard similar to the big worm drives.

The second "BUT" is you can't make bevel cuts. This really limits the saw's capability. It seems that some engineer was overcome with how neat their footplate mechanism design was and decided to forego the practicality of enabling bevel cuts.

All in all I give the saw 4 stars and would definitely buy it again. Another plus is that it doesn't kick up huge dust clouds, it's more like a jig saw in that respect. And I will buy the new improved bevel capable saw when IT comes out!

I bought this hoping it would be a nice alternative to my cicular saw when cutting things 1-inch thick and less. Just used it for the first time on some 3/4" plywood and it did just what I had hoped. I have a few Rockwell tools (JawHorse and Sonicrafter) and all are solid quality tools. This is no exception. You can't cut 2x4s with it, but as long as you realize its limits (designed in), its a great addition to a workshop.

I wish that the ratings would allow me to give this a 4 7/8 star rating because I have 2 comments...

1. I had to put a little bit of duct tape around the vacuum attachment because my vacuum's end was a bit bigger (1/16") than the attachment's outer diameter. To be fair to Rockwell, I don't know if this is the fault of my vacuum or the Versacut.

2. As much as I like the "plunge" design, it would be nice if this had a convenient means of locking down the blade to not require the "plunge".

Neither of these issues were serious enough for me to even drop my star rating to 4.5. I'd recommend this to a friend without a doubt.

One other thing... the last two tools I bought from Rockwell were in strong tool-bags rather than the typical molded plastic boxes. I love this! Much more useful 'cause I can throw other handtools in the bag as needed.

I really wanted to like this product. I have 4 other Rockwell tools that are among the best designed and manufactured tools I own. And I own a lot of tools. I am an experienced carpenter and have used many different brands and sizes of circular saw over the past 30+ years.

The grip on this tool makes the operator rotate his hand 90 degrees forward from the grip on every other circular saw I've ever used. In this position, it is very difficult to maintain precise control when pushing the saw forward and it would be very dangerous in a kickback situation. No matter what your skill level, kickback can happen to anyone if you hit something hard in the wood. It's not a big deal if you use proper technique and know how to control it. This grip makes it hard to control even if you are experienced.

To make matters worse, the grip is very large and narrows only where you place your finger on the trigger. This makes it impossible to get all of your fingers wrapped fully around it -- only the first two fingers can fully wrap around it. In the event of kickback with any circular saw, the user must maintain a firm grip and release the trigger. With the handle angle on most circular saws, a saw that kicks back normally does so right against the heel of your hand. Not so with this tool. And, since your index finger needs to release the trigger, in a kickback you will be torn between maintaining a firm grip with only 2 fingers (one of them on the trigger) and releasing the trigger.

Very dangerous. I sent it back.

I had the Craftsman's version of the Mini-Saw and I did like it... It was very compact, enough power, and was really good for small cuts... But one major flaw that I could no longer over look was the fact that you can't see the blade...Not a problem on straight through cuts, but made it really dificult when you needed your cut to stop at a particular point. As a result I had to find a replacement... I stumbled across the Rockwell... I've used it a few times so far and it works... It's got a nice laser, long cord, and powerful... For my purposes, I would have liked it more if it had a little smaller of a foot print (like the Craftsman)...And like another reviewer, I also agree that the springs on the shoe are a little too strong (You have to pay attention to the downward pressure you're applying or it will "spring" up).. I don't know if it will loosen up over time, but I'm hoping it will... I've seen several reviews complaining of kick back problems and a problem with the handle not being comfortable.... Please show me a circular type saw that isn't succeptable to kick back... However, as far as grip comfort, I agree it isn't the most comfortable handle and I to wish it was a bit smaller in diameter... I actually disabled the safety switch, which makes holding the saw a bit easier (It was a real pain trying to engage the safety switch and the trigger with one hand).... Setting the depth adjustment is also a bit of a pain... Hard to get it exact and it does tend to loosen up over a period of use...

Overall, a decent saw that needs a few improvements.. I probably wouldn't buy it again knowning what I know now... Hopefully Rockwell will come out with a next generation to address some of the issues found on this generation...
