Good trim saw
I bought this little saw a few months back as an addition to my growing C3 set, primarily for panel-cutting of plywood sheets into rough dimensions before taking to my table saw for finish cuts. This saw did a great job with the stock, carbide-tipped blade right out of the box, and appeared to tax the battery very little on 5/8 and 3/4 inch thickness plywood. I have also used it to trim the ends off 2x4 studs with no complaints. It does not have the speed or power of a corded saw, but has the advantages of being smaller and lighter, which are helpful when holding the saw during vertical cutting applications. Buyers should keep the intended use of this saw in mind when purchasing - cutting sheet goods, trim cutting, and rough crosscutting of boards, trim, and studs up to 2 inches thick. Precision miter cuts, finish cross-cutting and rip-cutting of boards should be done with other appropriate equipment (miter saws, table saws, etc.) and sustained, repetitive cutting applications might warrant the use of a corded saw (or a few extra batteries.) I have not used this on sustained projects that allowed me to measure battery life - but I have yet to drain the battery after several small projects (plywood and 2x4 trimming.) As with the C3 saber/jig saw I own, I believe the laser is unnecessary, since its brightness obscures the cut-line on a workpiece, and would recommend Craftsman add an LED light instead, for cut-line illumination. I like this saw, and would buy it again.

great saw - has some engineering problems
I have 2 of these - they are great. Don't worry about how long it will last. Some genius at Sears has replaced the blades with the 3/8 arbor hole with one with a 5/8 arbor hole. When the blade that comes with it wears out, you can use it for a paper-weight or just try to figure out why some dumb#@$ decided that you would not need more than the blade that comes with it. I have used this on 3/4 plywood (when I could buy blades). It is hard to believe how well it handles (with a blade). You probably won't need over 1 battery. I can only imagine how unstable it would be with the blade 1/4 inch of center. If blades were available, I would give it 5 stars and probably buy another one for backup. I would have recommended to a friend, however with no blades available, it might come thru my front window.

Great trim saw, but needs lithium.

Saw works great, but needs lithium batteries to be of extended use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very fast and effective saw that does its job

Cords almost always get in the way of cutting stuff especially if you have a lot of cutting to do so this tool was a great addition to my collection for cutting things without worrying about the cords hanging around although it may not be as powerful as the electric one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Useless if you can't buy blades

I got this as part of a kit with a flashlight (which stopped working almost instantly), a drill and a vaccuum and 3 batteries with 2 chargers. The battery life on these things is terrible. If I take the batteries off the chargers they will go dead overnight, so almost every time I want to use a tool, I need to change the battery. This get's even better, because 2 of the 3 batteries are almost impossible to remove from the tools because the levers you push to release the betteries don't work very well. I htink I would have been better off buying the chear ****** or ******* generic tool sets. The Craftsman name used to mean that you were getting quality, but now it's just more junk made in china.

Great cost to performance

All my old cordless tools were another, much more costly brand, Now I have switched to Craftsman only. The reason being, they cost less, preform the same, and in many cases lighter weight. This saw is no exception.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I love this saw.

I yad a saw lie this one that I had bought as part of a set about 7 years ago. I had a period of inactivity ad the blade tusted to the screw holding iti in place. I went to Sears and they had discontinued their repair centers. I purchased the same saw. It was on sale and I received $12. discount because of my ouints. It only cost me $27.00 instead of $40.00.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Well built saw

I haven't used this is great detail, but it seems like a well built sat. I am using it on some smaller projects and it is doing a great job. I really enjoy the added laser track light.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfect saw for my needs

This saw has plenty of power to cut through anything I would ever need it for. I actually get a lot more done because if I have a few minutes to work on a project, I can just take the saw and get to work. I don't have to get the extension cord out, plug it in, do whatever I need to do, wind up the cord clean up... it's amazing how much time I save not messing around with the cord.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
