Circular saw with features
6 Aug 2014
By adup1968

" The saw came with canvas bag and essential accessories.
Was easy to handle and adjust.
Came with laser guide which was a bonus and not expected on a saw at this price level .
Was the best value circular saw.
Although the instructions were minimal they were adequate and concise.
Would highly recommend.

Good, budget tool
27 Sep 2014

" I had to cut few floor boards and then utilise cutoffs. Using jigsaw was nat giving nice line. So I went to SF and got this tool. Now I know it is a must for any DIYer. It is not for professional use, but cuts nicely so cannot complain. I have done maybe 100m of cuts so far and cannot complain.
I do connect it to vacuum cleaner but does not help too much. Dust is everywhere.
I was hoping that piece to adjust width of the cut (you know, that sliding stuff on the right :) ) will be more usable but it is too weak and does not help very much.
I would say you have tot, what you pay for. "

" This machine is a workhorse and is strongly made... the other reviewers points are valid but the cost to quality of the machine make them less important for myself. It's so good i'm buying a second to take abroad with me. "

" In general good quality saw BUT has NO electric brake(as stated in sellers guide) so blade spins on after trigger release and guide/fence due to angle of securing screw moves when tightening .Contacted customer services very helpful and went to local store replaced item in case faulty regarding brake but same as previous .SO disappointed that sellers details not been updated after notification.

User Unfriendly
13 May 2013
By Lancman

" When my faithfull old AEG pegged out after 28 years, I had to replace it. The Erbauer looked good , so I bought one. It cuts beautifully, but I echo the comments of the other reviewers. You can not set the rip guard accurately because the angled flat tipped locking screw moves it as it is tightened. The old AEG had a vertical screw with a shim separating it from the rip guard. The guard then says where you put it while tightening up. You can not set the cutting depth accurately either because the index mark is located behing the locking screw. Did the designer never actually try using this saw? It really is frustrating to use.
I am dissappointed in the saw and in Screwfix for selling such a poor product. "

Great Entry Level Saw
2 Mar 2012
By kurrazyman

" Good solid saw with a good ergonomic design. Only negative things I would say are that: -
It isn't very easy to read the measurements on the depth adjuster.
The laser guide is only accurate very close to the saw and seems to wander off target the further away it stretches. I personally found it easier with the laser off.
Despite these two points it is a great entry level saw with a quality carry bag. "
