Now for the review. Upon receipt I found the blade lock defective and no blade installed. In other words no way to loosen the overtightened blade spindle bolt without using some device to reach inside the saw to hold the motor shaft while attempting to unscrew the bolt. Note: there is no easy release blade changer on this saw. The review above is flawed as the writer must be referring to another model entirely. In any event, this one has to go back for replacement. I would normally place the blade against a wooden surface while loosening the spindle bolt, but cannot as the blade isn't installed from the factory. Anyhow I'm sure amazon will replace this with another saw without any problem and I'll update upon receipt.
I received the replacement saw in record time of one day. Great service from Amazon. The original took nearly a week so I feel great about getting the replacement so quickly. I took the saw out, the blade lock worked 100%. I was able to install the blade, test all the features and try it out. Works great. Not one problem with the replacement. Guess the first was made on a Friday afternoon or Monday morning. The saw is lightweight for a circular saw, has a nice feel and cuts good with the included blade and even better with a Diablo 60t ultra finish.
I considered the Makita top of the line model for around $180 (this one was $111), prior to deciding on this one. Price was a big factor, but the over-riding factor was the fact that Makita is still making the stone age right side blade models exclusively in this size/type. I think once you get used to a left blade model you will not want to ever go back. I don't see any of the problems mentioned in other reviews such as the tube getting stopped up with sawdust (maybe they were pushing the saw too fast) or with veering to one side, etc. This is excellent value and I highly recommend it.
Not sure about the safety issue that one reader raised. I don't see the problem, but would appreciate it if someone could explain why a left-blade saw is unsafe for a right handed person. Actually, I almost cut my thumb off about 20 years ago on a long 2x4 rip cut. The blade bound up in the cut and "walked out" of the cut backwards and ran over my thumb (the one holding the 2x4). I think the blade-on-left saw would have made the situation better because I wouldn't have had such an awkward material holding position.
Here's the criticisms: There really should be on tool storage for the hex wrench, a rafter hook would be nice as well. Tried and didn't like the cord keeper - kinda felt it made the cord get more in the way. If you do need to cut with the keep side on the right, there is a very tight sight line to the blade. This could be a bit bigger, you just need to move around and find where the best view is on these cuts. Overall, a great saw for the money.
Any improvements from the 743 to the 423 were more than offset by a tremendous increase in noise. Running my "loaner" 743 side-by-side with the 423 showed the new 423 to be at least 25% louder. It had a spine-tingling whine that drove me nuts.
A fluke? Maybe. So I bought another 423 locally; it had the identical whine. I returned both, and found a seller that still had a 743. Same price, much less dB, and I'm a happy camper.
If you're looking for a quiet saw, keep looking. If you're already going deaf, I had no complaints with the PC 423.

For the life of me, I just can't get used to circular saw with the blade on the right side.Read more
