We rate this circular saw as the best for DIY needs. This tool is a cordless, compact circular saw that measures 5.5-inches. It is quite powerful for its size. You can operate the tool with both hands.

Its Gripzone over-mold is designed for maximum grip and maximum comfort. The 5.5″ carbide blade is more durable than a standard blade. The compact and transparent lower guard with the blade is positioned on the left and rotates clockwise.

The carbide blade can be position between 50-degree and 90-degree angles. The base shoe is well built and comes with scale readings. The toot is suitable for light use, and not recommended for more time-consuming tasks.

There is also the spindle lock button for changing blades.
