Circular saws are preferred by professionals for power and performance. Powered by a 15-amp motor this saw cuts fast without bogging down or stalling. An extra wide shoe provides greater stability and allows use of a speed square without motor interference. With a bevel capacity up to 50 degrees you can cut joists, rafters and trusses. Maximum depth of cut at 50 degrees is 1-5/8 inch. This saw has fast, smooth adjustments and easy-to-read scales and adjustable bevel pointer.
