Nice Circular Saw

I gave the Nextec Circular Saw a 4 star because of the weight and convenience. It saves me the hassle of bringing out my DeWalt battery operated circular saw.  The setup time is quick for this saw, as the battery is small and light. For the performace, I would recommend it for base board cuts or for woods that are no thicker than 2x2 wood.  2x3 you can get by but will be taxing the motor. The cut is not very fine, it nicks the wood at the end and that is because of the blade that is provided. The circular blade sold at Sears looks more idea for the everyday small diameter cuts.

Not as good
I did not expect that the saw is not fit for cutting a wood with thickness more than 1/2 inch and it's cannot be use for more than five minutes continuously.

Great Little Saw

My husband has a model train layout in the basement and he said this is the perfect size saw for the smaller cutting jobs that are needed to maintain the layout.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Wasn't sure at first

From some of the reviews I wasn't sure if this saw would be a good investment. Glad I took a chance as it turns out it is better than I expected. No it's not for the extended use but for on the spot quick cutouts or trims this does the job. Tough to find in stores but not sure why that is.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A little sweetheart

Bought one of these for my son for his starter tool box. We used it together with great results. Perfect for small jobs. Easy to handle and it cuts through 3/4" plywood like butter. Amazing for a 12V cordless. So good, I bought one for myself. I've used it on dozens of projects over the last year. It is sturdy, yet lightweight. Recommend it for home projects on wood less than 1" in thickness. My corded mini-circular saw is collecting dust (from it's cordless shelf-mate.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So far- so good

I purchased this saw for one reason and one reason only...to plunge cut into sheetrock. I am a remodeler, and when I have to cut into a sheetrock wall, I need one, a lightweight saw, two, a saw that spins slow and doesn't throw dust everywhere, and it must be cordless. This saw fits the bill and has done well so far on the first few jobs. A bonus on this saw is the vacuum connection to suck the dust as you cut. Battery capacity is a little low, so Sears if you read your reviews please offer a higher capacity 12 volt battery.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So so..

I've used this a few times, and it really only works fair on 1/4" ply. But it does come in handy for this purpose. I would recommend, but for only light work.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worked for me!

I used this saw to cut 12MM laminate flooring and it worked very well in this application. I can see that this will be good for other small DIY projects around the house. It would have been better if the purchase had included the battery and charger. Luckily I noticed that it didn't at the store and purchased them separately. If I had to make a separate trip to Sears I would have been more annoyed.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The little saw that can

I was skepticle when I purchased this saw that is only 12 volts. But I had a repair on the siding of my house to do so I took a chance. The little thing can slice through 3/4 inch cement board as if it was a/c. It went through 3/4 treated plywood also. It did the job eaisly with one battery.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

SAW FAILED

It was a nice little trim saw while it lasted, but it failed after only two years of occasional light use.  Sears Blue Crew explained warranty is for one year with receipt, so I lose.  Lesson learned.
