This product has many features that are important to have in a circular saw especially for professional DIYers or people who use their tools on a regular basis. The brushless motor provides longer motor life while still being compact and more powerful than traditional motors which is very useful when needing the tool for heavy-duty projects.

Cons

This saw does have some cons about it that are typical of most power tools but it still works great even with these issues you might run into. The blade teeth up close to the handle could get in the way when working with longer pieces of wood so this can slow down your process slightly, especially if you’re just getting started using this tool since you want to make sure you don’t damage it. You also will need at least one extra battery so you don’t have to stop working in the middle of a project if your battery dies. The blade also runs at full speed right up until it stops so there is no slow down, making this tool ideal for professionals who are used to working with power tools that have gears that need to be switched out.

Conclusion

Overall this is a great saw to have around the house or in a shop. It has many features that are important to have in a circular saw such as a brushless motor, compact size, and power enough for most applications. The built-in LED work light which can be fully compatible with the Kobalt 24-Volt Max system is extremely helpful when working with other power tools and illumination is always nice so you can see what you’re doing. The electric brake stops blade rotation when the trigger is released making this tool even safer at all times so it can be used with other tools like drill presses, table saws, or band saws without worrying about kickback since these are very dangerous if not used properly. Even though there are some cons, it doesn’t change the fact that this is a great tool to add to any shop or home.
