The Rockwell VersaCut is a compact circular saw that's easy to control with just one hand (view larger).
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.
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.
|The VersaCut easily handles various types of cuts in wood, concrete, metal, and more (click each to enlarge).|

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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...
