Quote from KillerCombo :
Agreed for the most part, but I don't think any of the other cordless options are going to be any better. If you meant a corded worm drive, that makes sense and makita makes one of those that's an absolute beast as well.

This is the most powerful circ saw on the market, corded included.
If you go on Instagram and look at the work of lbnlz12 all of his work is hand framed with that saw. He said it is the only saw he uses because the others do not have the power to keep up.

My Porter Cable ni-cad battery crapped out on my combo set so I'm thinking about upgrading to a brushless system.

I'm a casual home DIY'er and really tempted by this, but would need to buy a drill and other tools.

Are there any feedback or good sites for reviews (Makita versus Milwaukee versus Ridgid, etc)?

ToolGuyd is good. Wirecutter isn't bad either.

Quote from Unfocused :
Most people don't need this much saw.

Makita doesn't have a lot of inexpensive tools that operate on this battery system. Their selection has grown a lot lately, but most bare tools are in the $100-200 range.

Most people don't want to pay this much for a single tool.

But for those who use a circular saw enough to appreciate it, or would be more productive professionally with something like this, I think it's a "must buy" deal. Even if you never buy another Makita tool.

My brother who does construction got this deal several months ago and I am extremely impressed. He uses it daily.

For me, the batteries would die of old age before I got my money's worth if I couldn't use them in other tools. Unless I had a barn, shed or garage to build.
I have the top handle makita. I like it a lot, although I still love my corded skilsaw with the laser guide. do I need the rear handle? I am far from a professional, I just play at one in my garage.

I think you can also do no-contact "hacking". Set the batteries as ship to store, the saw kit as ship to home. Just never pick up the store ones and they get refunded. Keep the saw kit.

I can't say why you might need that many circular saws.

But if you're finding yourself short of battery on your Makita, buying this would get you four additional batteries and a charger to go with the new saw to play with...

Roughly two years ago I looked backwards and forwards at which tool line to place my money in. I'm not in a trade, so these tools don't have to make me money. That said, my experience with tools in the past personifies the saying "those who buy cheap, buy twice."

First of all, you want to go with a company that has an enormous selection of tools. IMO, that leaves four choices -- Makita, Milwaukee, Dewalt and Ryobi. If you're simply a DIYer I can see Ryobi being just fine. Ryobi is...okay.

Milwaukee doesn't have quite the same offerings for outdoor power equipment that Makita and Dewalt have. On top of that, to get the full power out of something like Milwaukee's chainsaw or trimmer requires their enormous and expensive high output batteries. When you're not using your trimmer, are you then going to want to put that 12ah high output battery on your impact driver? Dewalt has the Flexvolt system and Makita has a number of 36v tools that double up the batteries.

I love Milwaukee and I have a number of their M12 tools. But as for 18-20v, I would probably go with DeWalt or Makita. I personally chose Makita because their reliability and longevity are top tier, but I have little actual experience with Dewalt's cordless tools so I can't say if Dewalt is better or worse.

It will do 2 5/8" cuts, so it would cut through it in one pass you would have to turn it and cut again

So that means it can cut 4X4 in one pass, but not 6X6 in one pass. If I understood that right.

A 4x4 is actually 3-1/2 x 3-1/2.

So you would still need to turn and cut again based on it doing 2-5/8 cuts.

Quote from ShadySkins :
I just bought it 5 minutes ago and plan to return the batteries.

If you add each item separately the saw kit is $151.96 and the batteries are $97.04

I'm guessing you can return the saw kit and get back $151.96 + tax

I bit the bullet since it's free shipping. If returning the batteries doesn't work, I will just return the entire order. Nothing gained nothing lost.
you can return just the batteries or just the saw to the store even though you ordered online. They will refund the portion. I have experienced in similar purchase from home depot.
