Circular Saws that Get the Job Done

Ready for any tough job, this 7 1/4" Circular Saw brings the power of a 14 amp, 5,000 rpm motor to the site. Whether you’re ripping through plywood boards, plunge-cutting a floor to make way for new plumbing or putting a sharp mitered edge on a board, this saw delivers fast, accurate cuts you can count on. And featuring the clear visibility of a laser guide, you can stay on mark while moving fast, even in low light.

A wide, flat-ground aluminum shoe gives this Craftsman more stability than other Circular Saws while the easy to grasp bevel adjustment locks in angles up to 54-1/2 degrees for clean, tight fitting joints. For added workshop and jobsite safety, a Live Tool indicator glows whenever this saw is plugged in, not the only notable light, this saw features the illumination of a bright LED that makes even the faintest pencil mark clear even in dark working conditions. Ergonomically designed and built for job after job of solid service, this circular saw helps you get it done for years. Toss it in your tool kit and get to work.

  • Kit includes: 7-1/4 in. circular saw, 24-tooth carbide-tipped blade, 8 ft. extension cord, blade wrench, owner's manual

For the price, this is one of the best 7-1/4 circular saws you can purchase. I looked at several models from other manufacturers before deciding on this craftsman. I have found the laser beam to be very accurate (you can turn it on or off before the cut to either double check the proposed cut line or to use it for final cutting). At a hefty 14 amps, you can plow through about anything you're confronted with. The scales are clearly marked on the plate and for the adjustment levers. They are quite easy to use because of their placement and they are generous in size. The user friendly handles makes the saw itself very easy to hold and operate. I have only one concern when cutting a 4x8 sheet of plywood. The sturdy aluminum plate is about 1/8 thick, and if care is not exercised when using an 8-foot guide, the thin plate can easily slip under the guide about mid-point and throw off the cut. Although not a critical issue, the case is surprisingly well built and securely holds the saw, laser glasses, wrench and edge guide. All in all, it is my opinion that this Craftsman is one excellent circular saw.

7 1/4 Circular saw
I buy all of my tools with the crafstman logo and I am usually satisfied, but this tools has made me change my mind about Craftsman. I have had used this saw twice and foud out that the Laser,Blade and Guide are not in line with each other. This tool has plenty of power and works good as long as you don't won't to cut straight. I have tried to exchange it at my nearest sears store refuses to satisfy me. I my have just gotten one in a hundred but but sears is not standing behind there product.

7 1/4 " Circular Saw

I have used Craftsman tool ever since I have been able to buy my own tools and I am 65 years old now. I needed a new circular saw when my about 30 year old circular saw burnt up so I bought this saw. It has more updates on it than my old one and I look forward to using it for another 30 years or more.

Great Circular Saw for the Money

The saw is actually quieter than the 1975 vintage Craftsman saw that it replaced and has all of the extra features to go with it like the laser line, it is lighter, it is built well and I expect that it will last just as long as it's predecessor. I recommend this saw to anyone that is into DIY or light commercial usage.

Great Saw

The saw is better than me! LOL, I have decided the projects I am currently working on require a steadier hand than mine, so next purchase from Sears will be a nice new table saw. I like the laser but in bright light I seem to lose it, so I have to follow the line I snapped closer than I like visually. But the saw does not bog down and really does a great job.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I gave this 4 stars because the saw didn't come with a case. It would have been nice with a hard cover case instead of a bag.Other then that the saw runs and cuts great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
