"This is the first circular saw I have used and owned. Any gripes, not really, the battery needs to be cold before you can charge it up again, I would definitely get a spare battery, as there is a space in the case for a spare. Despite the standard blade 140mm (not a very common size) it left a very smooth cut. If you’re wondering about getting this saw, get it, you won’t be disappointed! One more thing, I ordered this online and got it in less than 24hrs, can’t be bad."
