Craftsman Evolv saw works very good

Great price for a great item.  This Craftsman evolv 12 amp saw is a very good item to have.  Ive never owned a saw so didn't really know what type I would need.  After being helped buy a great salesperson it was this one that made it home.  It is light, powerful and very handy.  I love that it still carries the Craftsman name.  This cut all the plywood and 2 by 4s for the fort I made my kids.

Great for the money

the saw works well but as soon as your blade gets the least bit dull it kicks like a mule, never had that problem with other circular saws, but as long as you have a new blade works very well,

Good Deal for the Money

If you or your loved one tinkers around the house and does not use this daily this is defiantely a good deal. Works and handles very well. Problematic if building anything of large size that needs straight percision cuts, as it is a 7 1/4" saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Saw is okay

HATE the safety start button. I have small hands and this adds to my effort. The saw does not go to exactly zero degree for straight/square cuts. I am going to have to take to the store to see if someone there can get it straight. Did I mention I am a girl?

Great Value

It's one of the least expensive saws available. I was able to get it on sale, so it was a really bargain. With a good blade on it, it cuts straight and true. It might not be as smooth as a Makita or Bosch, but it gets the job done. Perfect, if you just need a saw occasionally.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice, but too light.

Ergonomics and power are great for this entry-level saw. However, the thing is simply too lightweight for me - and this loses cutting bite.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
