Easy to handle, very practical
Rating: 5
I am new to any kind of woodwork, so I purchased this circular saw to get started. The use was super easy and within minutes I was on my way sawing all the wood I needed for my project. Now that I am able to use a saw I'm looking forward to start new projects,

It is a perfect machine to do the little jobs that seem to always pop-up. It is also one of the few machines out there that come with Battery and Charger.

A Cut Above

Retired female and find this small, portable saw much easier to handle than the big and bulky circular saw.

Great compact saw
Rating: 5
First let me say that Worx customer service is second to none. The employees are very polite and helpful. I've had to contact them a couple of times and both times I went away with a great experience. Now. The saw works great. I own multiple Worx products and love them. Great company, great products and great customer service

Portable Powerhouse Saw
Rating: 5
This worxsaw works great and is easy to use. I can use other Worx batteries with it. It's fast convenient and doesn't take up a lot of space. I have recommended it.

This little tool is perfect for my deck railings install since the deck is already done. Cutting the access holes for the railing posts will be so much easier with this tool.Since I had the batteries already I was able to save a little money with just buying the "tool only" option. The power is there when I need it and the design and compact size makes it less tiresome to use than other saws.

Very handy tool
Rating: 5
I'm very satisfied with this Worx compact circular saw. I've been able to use this tool when away from nearby line power without having to use a generator. I've used this to break down pallets and other tasks and have been satisfied with its performance. The portability is a plus but need to be realistic on the type of cutting that is needed.

WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw - thumbs Up...
Rating: 5
Very Pleased with the tool and the flexibility that it provides, I was looking for a quick Compact Circular saw and I have a number Ryobi tools but they do not provide that type of tool. Will be looking at additional tools from WROX... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Wonderful Saw - Horrible Instructions
Rating: 4
This is the expected solid mini-saw that is quite useful in certain situations. However, the instructions I got were virtually all pictures, and they don't even clearly indicate what they represent, so I'd say it is a wonderful saw, but you have to figure out how to operate in by experimentation.

Not ideal for many projects

The blade barely reaches though a 1” board.
