[SMALL FOR A REASON] Quick, more efficient cuts and you can take it with you when you don’t want to lug a big saw around

[EZ-SET DEPTH GAUGE] The lever lets you go from 0-45 degree bevel settings with quick adjustment

[MADE FOR LUMBER] Excellent depth-of-cut for slicing up to 2″ stock lumber. Cut 2x4s in a single pass. It also cuts metal, tile, and plastic

[SEE THE CUT] Left-sided blade optimization gives you a clear line of sight on anything you’re cutting

[DO IT YOURSELF. DO IT BETTER. DO IT WITH WORX.] WORX tools are engineered with cutting-edge technology, and above modern efficiency standards, so you can build a cost-effective tool collection that’s been designed to last

[POWERFUL, PORTABLE] At 4-1/2”, and only half the weight of a full 7-1/4” circular saw, you get portability without sacrificing power. The thinner blade makes for less strain on the tool, so it can work harder

[4.4 LBS] Light, so you can operate it with one hand. That weight also allows you to make more precise cuts and work longer with less fatigue

[EZ BLADE CHANGE] First, unplug the Worxsaw. Then a simple 3-step process with just a button push and a turn of an Allen key, and you have a fresh, new blade

[INCLUDES] 4-1/2” Worxsaw, 24T Carbide-Tipped Blade, Parallel Guide, Vacuum Adapter, Allen Key

Full size circular saw can be a pain. The WORXSAW stores, easier, travels lighter, and is much handier on the job site or in the workshop. For quick plunge cuts, without all the setup, just grab it and go.

How is this compact circular saw different than the previous model?

The new compact circular saw is slimmer and more powerful featuring increased motor power enclosed in a brand new ergonomic slim-body design.

What is a compact circular saw and how is it different than a traditional saw?

Compact circular saws have smaller diameter blades and are easy to handle. Smaller, thinner blades take less effort to cut through up to 2 in. thick materials. The handle behind the blade offers excellent cut-line visibility and maneuverability.

How long is the power cord?

The power cord is 6.5 ft. long.

Can I bevel cut with this saw? Is it possible to plunge cut with this saw?

This compact circular saw is capable of bevel cuts up to 45 degrees, at thicknesses up to 1-1/8 in. at a 45 degree bevel. You can also plunge and pocket cut up to 1-11/16 in. thickness.

What kind of materials can I cut with this compact circular saw?

Included is a carbide-tipped, 24T, wood cutting blade. Other blades are available to cut a variety of different materials. Make sure to choose the correct blade for the material and saw size.

  1. Sherry

    as a child I grew up around the basic carpentry work ie: to add a room on the home- but nothing on the simpler basis. I have always wanted to be able to build things like deck furniture or lay attic flooring. Due to my dislike of a “skill saw”, due to it being so heavy, awkward and dangerous, I never did any wood working or building. Recently the need to build for a client has put me back into wood working and knowing that “my men at lowes” can’t cut everything, I was on the hunt for a saw. After watching Anna White, doing research and disregarding 2 men’s opinion and listening to my gut and another female friend.. I purchased this saw and can’t be happier…A few suggestions — I am able to control the saw with one hand and be efficient, but a smaller handle would have been nice and more comfortable.The picture instructions were not as easy to understand .. I think they could be written better to explain about trouble shooting and installing the blade and how the safety switch and stuff worked.. as a newbie, it took me some time to figure it out.. but I did figure it out because the tool is “simple” and that is a compliment because it is what I needed..Got the tool Friday afternoon and around 10 at night, I put it together, learned how to use it and began my first cuts. Built the 2 saw horses on my own in less than 2 hours (and that included the measurement parts)

    Only having the use of one arm, I was always hesitant to use a full size circular saw. I’ve used this saw a few times now and it is pretty much perfect for me – no kickback, no significant torque twisting of any kind, and very well balanced.The hand grip is about the size of a soda can and the safety/trigger setup is not awkward at all, although it may take a little time to get used to finger placement. I always let the blade reach full speed (which is very quick) before starting my cut – don’t force the saw and your reward is a clean cut. So far, I’ve only used it on 2×4 and smaller wood, with the supplied blade, and have had no issues.Another benefit of this saw is its size, it doesn’t take up any more room than a smaller fire extinguisher or a regular size thermos. Long panel cuts, such as with plywood, may be tricky due to the small size of the blade but there was a guide included with my purchase which I have not used yet.

    I am a woman with average-sized hands, and loathed using my circular saw because my fingers can barely reach the various knobs and buttons and I was always afraid I’d cut myself, or drop it, or my hands would get tired trying to use it for a quick job. It’s not a great feeling to try to find a man to cut something for you purely because your hands are too small for the tool. So, I had resorted to using my jig saw for everything, until I started installing 12″ baseboard. There’s just no way to get a good bevel with a jig saw, and mitre boxes don’t fit trim that tall.Enter: this saw. It’s light enough that I can use it with one hand, while holding whatever I’m cutting in place. The markings are easy to follow, and there’re indicators for the 45 degree bevel for precise cuts. So far, it’s cut easily through everything I’ve put it up to. So far I’ve used it for wood flooring, all the 12″ baseboards in my house, and window trim. I’ll probably buy a diamond blade and try to use it to cut a few pieces of tile. 10/10 would recommend for a female carpenter.

    I bought this for pretty much one reason, which was to build wooden shelves, ledges, and huts for my chinchillas’ cages. Nothing too extravagant. I have never used a circular saw, and have never even used power tools outside of my 7th grade woodshop years ago. I was very nervous to use this as I thought I would drop it, lose control, whatever. Under the supervision of someone more experienced I tried this out on a piece of scrap wood (likely pine), probably a piece of a 1×6. I was VERY surprised and very excited at how easy it was to control and how well it cut the wood. I did have to use two hands to hold it the first couple of times because I do not have much upper body strength and was worried, but after a bit of practice I was able to cut with one hand and hold the wood with the other. All in all, as a small and relatively week young woman who is not in the world of construction, this is perfect for me!!

    Update 6-12-2020 I bought another blade for it and am just about done replacing my entire floor in my living room and kitchen 14ft x 35 ft. This saw has cut through 2 layers of linoleum, glue, and 3/4 inch OBS like a champ. I wish this was around 40 years ago when I was helping my father remodel the houses we lived in. I am really just astonished what a beating this little saw takes and just does not skip a beat. Just a amazing purchase hands down. I bought this September of 2017 to cut out a section of flooring in my bathroom to replace in my trailer. It was a very tight space but I needed to be careful how deep I went so this fit the description. This saw chewed it right up like it was nothing and I completed the job in one day no problem. Over the next two years I used it for other projects but the last month I abused this thing like no other. I ripped up my bathroom floor, hallway, part of my bedroom, and half my kitchen to replace all the grey pipe with PEX and this little saw was a life saver. Up tight on the walls, easy control, beautiful lines, what more could you ask for. My last job before winter is the front door and floor in front of it but it will be a piece of cake with this. Even after all that it still looks like I bought it last week and that shows how well it is made. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a smaller Circular Saw.

    Finally got to use this and it works great. I’m not handy at all and using tools isn’t my forte. Using a power tool that could cut off a body part is especially risky. However, I was able to use this Worxsaw and still keep all my digits. It’s lightweight and handles well. The trigger lock and trigger are well placed and easy to use. Used it to cut through several 1″x10″ boards and it made short work of it. Depth of the blade is adjustable up to 2″ and this will cut on angles. Adjustments are made easily. For me, it took a few cuts to do a straight edge but considering my expertise, that’s not the saw’s fault. The one thing that would be great is if it came with or could buy separately a storage case.

  7. RPetty

    We bought this little saw after reading the reviews. We used it for cutting 1″ granite and it was great. After cutting several pieces it finally would start to heat up and we’d have to let it cool down for quite awhile. I would definitely buy another one. The price was more than fair and considering that we totally overworked it and it’s still going strong I’m more than happy with the purchase. We just use it for cutting lumber now and it’s doing great.

  8. Satch Carlson

    First of all, I liked the price. I had to make a few straight panel cuts in order to rebuild some cabinets, and I work in limited quarters with no table saw. My radial-arm saw is theoretically capable, but is never truly parallel with the fence. So I thought that a small circular saw, running next to a firmly affixed straight edge, would give me a decent edge.Using a thin Freud blade (link:  Freud D0436X Diablo 4-3/8-Inch 36 Tooth ATB Cordless Trim Saw Blade with 20-Millimeter Arbor and 3/8-Inch Reducer Bushing ), I got excellent results. However, like many other reviewers, I find these small saws (like this one and my Dremel) a bit awkward—too fat for comfortable one-hand use, but not exactly suited to a two-hand grip.Ah: But like Spiccoli’s dad, I have bitchin’ tools.The Worx dust port exits to the right of a plastic housing. The left side is flat, enabling me to drill a hole and tap it to take a 6-mm Allen-head cap screw from my where-the-hell-did-these-come-from bin. Onto this I screwed a foam-covered handle from a—well, I really don’t know; it’s a handle with 6-mm female mounting threads, and it’s been lying around for years. I had to use a 3/8″ standoff between the handle and the housing, but once everything was screwed together, I had a two-handed saw! And the very first thing I did with it was to cut across a three-foot quarter-inch Masonite panel following a pencil line—without any clamp or guide!So I’m giving this saw all five stars. I figure they would have added a handle if they’d thought of it first.

  9. Kimberly A. Bradley

    I love this thing. I have always wanted to make things with fence boards and my confidence in using saws was what stopped me. I bought this little gem and jumped right in. As a 53 year old woman with no experience with power tools, I have found my tool! Easy to use, light and very easy to control. Highly recommend!!!

  10. DanInSeattle

    I got this because of reviews on this brand. I have been using it for a week cutting 1×6 toung and groove cedar for my walls. Hasnt let me down and the blade is still working good. I have cut both ends off of 124 boards for the walls and also to cut old cabinets and various wood to fit in my firepit. Has barely gotten warm. I really love this saw, nice handling, weight, easy to use!
