    Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw with Laser (Bare Tool):

    This saw performs very well but keep in mind you must keep a sharp blade in the unit. Also this saw should be operated with the extended run battery only as it does require a heavier amp draw than most of the other 18v Porter Cable tools. I rarely use my corded saw any longer because of the convenience this tool provides. Always have an extra EX (extended run) lithium battery charged and a fresh blade ready to go and you will not be disappointed. Note blade life depends solely on what you are cutting and do not try to cut through nails. Let the saw do the work and don't force it through the material and I believe you will agree this saw is worth the investment.

      Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw with Laser (Bare Tool):

      I build beehives and set up trap-outs for bees.
      I use this saw to cut 3/4 inch plywood, 2x4's, 2x6's and such.
      If you cut steadily and not dog the saw it will cut about anything you put it on.
      It's a terrific tool to use out in the field where there isn't an electrical source.

      Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw with Laser (Bare Tool):

      Saw is as advertised, but certainly could use more power. It is mostly plastic so it feels cheap. My last cordless Porter Cable saw was metal, heavy and still works!

      Great Price but Poor Proformance

        Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw with Laser (Bare Tool):

        I tried using this saw in my workshop. Very poor power. Saw is not strong enough to cut through a 3/4" ply without losing power every few seconds. I've tried it out many times thinking I might have been doing something wrong. But I can truly say it's a waste of time.
