How to choose the best circular saw for the job

There are many circular saws on the market – all renowned for their simple yet efficient cuts. However, knowing which to choose can be easier said than done.

The first thing you need to do is ask yourself what the saw will be used for. Yes, DIY-grade power tools are remarkably powerful and long-lasting – great for light DIY work and weekend projects – but they can’t withstand the long hours of use in professional workshops.

Here we list just a few other things you should look out for when buying a circular saw:

  • Cutting capacity and depth – typically, saws with a greater cutting capacity are best for handling thick pieces of wood.
  • Load speed – the speed of the motor will determine how much control you have over the circular saw when in use.
  • Bevel capacity – any good saw will allow you to make straightforward cuts at 90°, however, a modern one will make bevel cuts at varying angles – thanks to an adjustable base plate.
  • Safety features – circular saws can be dangerous so it’s well worth keeping an eye out for safety features like an electric brake and rail tracks.
