I have been wanting to get a corded Left Blade Circular Saw. Initially I was looking for a used one, but I have decided to bite the bullet and spend the extra money to get a brand new one. I will mostly use it to break down sheet material.
I have looked at the worm drive versions, but I think they are too heavy. So, the only left-blade saws in the side-winder configuration to pick from are Bosch CS5 and Milwaukee 6391-21. They both seem to be comparable feature and price-wise. One down side is that neither has an Electric Brake – a feature I would really love to have.
I am having a hard time deciding which of the two to pick from. If you have experience with either one, please share here to help make my decision easy. Also, if there are other options in the Left Blade configuration, please suggest those. I already have a cordless left-blade saw which I am not a big fan of, because the batteries are getting old and don’t have enough juice left, so not looking for a cordless recommendation.
Would highly appreciate your help.
