Top Customer Reviews
1) The saw is nearly useless with NiCad batteries. However, with the newer Lithium batteries it is very handy. Especially with the large 4 AH XCP battery.
2) Many of the specs for this saw list the arbor as 3/8". It is almost impossible to find a blade of this size with a 3/8" bore. But, it IS NOT 3/8". It is 10mm, measured with digital calipers. There are a number of good quality blades that can be purchased with a 10mm bore or that include a 10mm reducer bushing.
3) This is listed as a 5.5 inch saw, but the included blade is closer to 5-3/8. It will however fit a 5.5 inch blade. The major difference is that with a full 5.5 inch blade you can get a full 2" depth cut.
4) The included blade is junky, and you will find better cutting performance and battery life with a better blade.
All in all, for home projects this saw is light, easy to handle, and very useful. Unfortunately without Lithium batteries you would never know this. With a NiCad and the stock blade this saw can barely cut through a 1" board without binding.
The blade depth can be set to just barely cut through 2x lumber. It works fine for typical pine plywood. The included blade isn't half bad, but it's not a Diablo. Craftsman even includes a rip fence.
The downside, and the reason it lost two stars, is battery life. Battery life is absolutely terrible. If you're just cutting a few pieces of wood, it's not a big deal. But for an entire project, especially one where your spare batteries are being used in other tools, dead batteries are a show stopper.
Kickback is virtually non-existent, probably due to the low torque.
