Goodbye sleepers
22 Jul 2012
By
, Newport
"I bought this when I put some new sleeprs into my garden. It cut them with ease even at 85mm depth.
It is a bit noisy so I used some ear muffs but well worth the money."

"Having just used the Titan circular saw for the first time I am left wondering why I took so long to replace my old saw. This unit does everything I want it to and the laser guide helps even me to cut a straight line. Great value for money and reasonable quality."

Very good value for money saw
22 Apr 2014
By
, London
"I purchased this saw as the one I wanted was out of stock. Recommended by Screwfix assistant in store. Very pleased. Cuts with ease and has plenty of power. Only slight downsides are accuracy of alignment, as cut is a little difficult to work out and the saw is quite heavy to keep accurate for more lengthy cuts, despite the lasser."

Overall not bad BUT...
6 May 2012
By
, Shrewsbury
"A Good Value for money Circular saw thats cut everything I've thrown at it so far!
That ranges from 2" MDF, Aerated Concrete Blocks, 1.5" Wood to Thin Wooden Dowel.
The laser CAN be a bit "funny" at times and turn itself off for no reason, but otherwise its a useful little gizmo to have.
Main drawback is the Blade Guard ... a lot of the time it wont open automatically when you introduce the item to be cut.. so you have to release the guard and hold it open with one hand... which controlling the saw with the other... and its NOT a lightweight saw!
Otherwise a good value Saw thats well worth looking at!"

A real "muscle" saw
29 Nov 2011
By
, Merseyside
"Not used it extensively but when used it's performance was great. Yes, it's a bit big (especially the box) & heavy, yes it's spindle feels a bit "slack" but the performance more than compensates. Probably more suited to trade use than the casual DIYer."

It done the Job
24 Oct 2011
By
, United Kingdom
"On use it rattles a bit but did not hesitate even at the max cutting depth.
Could have done with a longer lead, But that is a small gripe compared to the price.
Good Bye

Expectations crucial
29 Mar 2011
By
, Ledbury
"The first reviewer is right about the gearbox-it is noisy, but many high speed gearboxes such as circular saws,angle grinders, etc are not quiet. Its not an excessive amount of noise and theres no play in the bearing (plus a 2yr guarantee remember) so Im not concerned at all.The blade on mine is perfectly true -I think the first guy just got a bad blade (on a bad day possibly!)
I wasnt expecting Dewalt quality for £70 so I wasnt disappointed.
The machine is very big and quite heavy compared to a 185mm model despite the use of alloys.The cable is around 10ft long and is good quality witha decent tough plug .
The laser is mains-powered so no more flat AAA batteries to replace.The beam is sharp and lines up to the cut out on the baseplate and the blade perfectly.The only bad point is the quality of the button switch (think about christmas crackers...)
The trigger is reasonable quality and the motor is softstart, so it doesnt jump as you begin cutting.The baseplate is thick aluminium plate and the chassis is an aluminium casting-Im not sure if these would take much of a knock.
The adjustment screws fairly chunky and easy to use while there is plenty of clearance between the handle and the blade housing for large hands.
It could have benefited from the inclusion of a front handle.Overall, I'm really pleased with it.

Probably the worst
5 Feb 2011
By
, Surbiton
"Looks are decieving. First, scales are way off, second, blade runs like a wobble saw, thirdly, gears sound like a barrel of bolts going round.
It is cheap, but its also very poor. Its going back tomorrow !.
