When my whimpy Craftsman cordless circular saw finally gave up the ghost, I replced it with this one by Dewalt. So far it has been a fantastic buy. The XRP battery quikly takes a full charge in under an hour and gives you about 6 or 8 hours of steady cutting. I first used this in framing a loafing shed for our horses and it performed flawlesy, cutting treated 4×4s, plywood, and treated and untreated 2×4s. It comes with a case that has a mounting post complete with a clip for replacement blades, and your local hardware store should have a good selection of the 6 1/2” size. I got a set from Home Depot by Oldham that includes a great 24 tooth blade and a 120 tooth blade that slices through plywood.
The included fence will easily fit on either side. The soul plate tilts right or left and can be adjusted for depth of cut.
All-in-all, this is an awesome saw that will see much use in my shop! You will be happy, too!
