It cuts accurately and offers good visibility for the cut. The shoe is a cheap stamping, and I had to adjust the bevel adjustment screw to get it to cut at a true 90 degrees. It would have been nice if Porter-Cable had been able to supply the handy battery charge indicator on this tool. It is great on the drill and impact driver. But overall a great value.
A nifty feature is the depth scale incised into the semi-transparent blade guard.
I think that the most impressive feature of this line of tools is the power output–these little motors really smoke! And the battery life is impressive. A great candidate for anyone looking for a cordless circular saw, and a fine addition to the 20-volt line for contractor who need all the tools and want to make a sensible decision for a whole line.
Let’s hope that Porter-Cable takes advantage of this line’s quality features and expands it with a planer, sander, caulk gun, nailer, etc. This line compares favorable with DeWalt’s excellent 20-volt system, and costs considerably less.
