There are many questions that a consumer should ask himself or herself if they are in the market searching for one of the best circular saws. Such As: How much does the saw weigh? Is it a safe saw or does it kick like a bucking bronco? How tough and durable is it? Will it be able to withstand the rigors of the job site? I only need a circular saw for home improvements which one will best suite my needs? How many Amps and RPMs is it equipped with? How easy (or not) is it to use? How is the weight of the saw distributed and is it properly balanced? How large is the cutting capacity? What are the degrees of the positive stops? Is it powered with electricity or a rechargeable battery and which is more efficient? How durable is the cord connection? How enhanced (or not) is the line of cut? I have large hands and I like to wear gloves what is the clearance between the handle and the blade case? How clear are the depth and bevel markings? How durable and reinforced is the footplate? What is the difference between a "wormdrive" circular saw and a "sidewinder"? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? I rip rafters all day long is there a hook to rest the saw while I move or pivot? All of these questions are very important when you make the decision to purchase one of the best circular saws.
However some hypoid and worm drive designs may not spin their cutting blades at as high of speeds as a direct drive. In practical non-construction uses the differences in cutting speeds dont really matter much. The quality of the blade and using the correct blade for the material being cut is a much bigger factor for cutting speed and cutting quality. With this being said there are differences among all styles and within the same designs of circular saws that make a difference. The overall quality of a saw is always a factor. Circular Saw Features to Know About: - Power & Amps: Most circular saws will advertise their power in amps. The most common rating is 15 amps. Some are rated at 14 amps 13 amps 12 amps 10 amps and lower. However more isnt always better. The amount of power the motor of the saw uses doesnt always translate to more power at the actual cutting blade. The design of the motors inner-workings plays a role.

Most budget saws will use a somewhat heavier formed steel base plate/shoe and blade guards. Lighter saws use cast aluminum or magnesium alloys for their base plate and blade guards. The weight of motors can vary based on design. Lighter saws are generally preferred due to less user fatigue but there times with a little extra weight is useful. - Light and Laser guide: These have the potential to be useful but are often found on budget circular saws and may not be accurate. If the laser can be adjusted it may be made more accurate. What many people find more useful than a laser cutting guide is an on board light. - Depth and Cutting Angle Adjustment: Some saws can cut thicker materials than others. Also some can cut at greater angles than others. Among circular saws that use the most common sized blades (7 1/4") the depth of cut limit doesnt vary greatly. However even an additional 1/8" cutting depth can make a big difference in some applications.
