Weight and comfort are very important factors to consider when purchasing a circular saw. Simply stated, if you can’t control the blade, you aren’t going to get a straight cut. This tool has a unique feature: the main handle can tilt to accommodate the position that’s most comfortable for you to work in. Another key comfort factor is its weight - only 10.4 lbs net weight. It has a wide and clear sight line that can be easily viewed from either side. The power is substantial: 15-amp, 3.25 max horsepower.
