Light weight but powerful
1 Sep 2013
By
, Surrey
"I was not certain if I should buy this 165 mm blade diameter saw or go for the larger 190 mm saw. Having now used this one continuously for two weeks, I am glad that I chose this one. It is more than capable of cutting 2 in thick wood and is lighter than the larger blade saws which make it much easier to use for long periods of time. It also has great build quality and features. I am now pleased that my old saw gave up the ghost otherwise I would never of bought this saw."

Good quality circular saw
19 Aug 2012
By
, Reading
"Firstly the description is inaccurate with regard to features. There is no soft start or electric brake and the blade it comes with has 18 teeth!
The current catalogue also gives the wrong blade size, it's 165, 20mm bore.
I hope that helps when comparing with other saws!
Although it has no soft start it doesn't try to jump when you do start it up so if you've lined up the cut line it won't move upon starting as I have experienced with other saws.
it has a very long flex a real plus so you can ensure you don't get snagged whilst performing a cut.
I checked the stops for 90 and 45 degree angles to ensure they were true and on my saw they were straight out of the box.
As with most DeWalt tools it's very solid in build quality and feels good in the hand, two notches for 90 and 45 degree cuts made in the front end of the base plate allow you to follow a pencil line very accurately and connecting a vac hose removes most of the saw dust while cutting.
The 55mm cutting depth is more than enough for me and probably most people, deep enough for all sheet materials, kitchen worktops and of course all 2 inch by whatever lengths.
No dust catcher bag or carry case are provided but that's not a bad thing for everyone, for me the cases for my power tools take up too much room in the van so I don't use them.
At the end of the day it's a good quality circular saw that will perform the task it was designed for with ease. For a decent cut don't buy a cheep alternative and remember the more teeth the blade has the cleaner the cut, a selection of blades that fit this model are available from Screwfix to suit the task in hand."

DeWalt 165mm Circular
19 May 2012
By
, Burton Latimer
"If you want a small Circular cant do better than this. DeWalt build so you know its good. Ok not got all the fancy bits on, but, for the small quick jobs it does the trick in style. Easy to use and handle - being a bit lighter than its big brothers. Overall, if you do a lot of smaller cuts then this is the one. Cracking."

"Well worth paying the little bit extra from some entry level saws as solid, steady and reliable, gauge also holds firm and is accurate as other saws that I have owned have tended to drift"

Decent Wee Saw!
17 Sep 2012
By
, Inverness
"As pointed out the description is a wee bit out.....My one was 3° out from the 90° But easy fixed. The front notch does not line up with the cut on both sides and is too wide for the blade, Only the right hand side one is true. Excellent long limp power cable on this light easy to use powerfull saw, The gaurd is sprung very well and not like many saws that are way too strong, Nice easy to use trigger even for left handed use. Great saw shame about the front notch but ive adapted to it now."

mini marvel saw
27 Mar 2010
By
, South Lanarkshire
"For years I preferred to use the larger circular saws, purely for reliability. But had this little mini marvel a few months now and its more than paid for itself already. Very easy to handle and comfortable in grip and manouverability. Typical Dewalt build quality not surprisingly and very good value for money.
My only critisism is, when using in conjunction with a long clamped straight edge guide on sheet materials be careful the clamp is always in contact with the work surface or the base of the saw very easily slips under the clamp and you lose your guide line cut. The base plate does have a very slight lift upwards at the front but for added ease of guided cuts a more pronounced base plate upturn would have been better, but being aluminium I found it very easy to remove the baseplate and form a better rise at the front to ensure it cant slip under clamp guides.

A real cracker
26 Sep 2008
By
, Dorset
"I recently purchased this item and was a little dubious because of the low price tag. However i neednt have worried its a real cracker and the quality is of the standard you would expect from the name DeWalt. My one gripe is that it doesn't come with a dust bag. In this day and age of MP3 players and air-con as standard it seems a little chulrish they couldn't throw one in!"

Dewalt Circ.saw
26 Jul 2008

, warrington
"Excellent saw and very light for a saw of this size. Beware of the initial 90 degree set-up; mine was miles out. Dust extraction facility is excellent (exactly as advertised) but a dust extraction bag is not included which seems a bit churlish."
