Tool innovation makes me smile. When I first picked up the Kobalt Tools 24V brushless circular saw I knew the company had done something different. The tool even looks different. The thinner, wider brushless motor belied some kind of engineering voodoo of which I was not yet aware. As it turns out, voodoo had nothing to do […]
The Makita Cordless Rear-Handle Circular Saw was introduced back in February with great fanfare at World of Concrete. It hit the market in April and we’ve had plenty of time to use – and put it up against 15 other cordless circular saws in a shootout. See how Makita did in our cordless circular saw shootout! What’s […]

The new Milwaukee M18 Fuel Circular Saw features a single 18V battery system that runs a 7-1/4″ blade. This entry into the full size cordless circular saw arena made waves because of the fact that it only uses that one M18 RedLithium battery. Questions were certainly raised as to whether it would be able to […]
Admittedly, the last Bosch 18V reciprocating saw didn’t perform all that well against the competition in our cordless reciprocating saw shootout. At the time, Bosch told they had a replacement in the works and it was going to be something special. We saw the Bosch GSA18V-125 at World of Concrete in February and it is […]
Often in our shootouts, we try to keep the list of tools reasonable. With so many features to consider and tons of wood to cut, it doesn’t typically make sense to invite everyone to the party. Sometimes it’s a price point, battery voltage, or top-rated tools that make the cut. But this time, we invited everyone […]
The new DeWalt 20V Max Brushless Circular Saw has hit the market with upgrades we expected to see from their next generation. It’s got an XR brushless motor and 7-1.4-inch blade capacity. That DeWalt brings those upgrades over their previous model is a no-brainer. The question that remains is what kind of cutting power you get […]

Now that Ryobi has officially announced their new 18V dual battery miter saw, it seems that the AEG model is imminent. For the US launch, the Ridgid 18V Brushless 10-Inch Miter Saw will be renamed as it always is. AEG is simply the Australian brand of the same tools. Often, taking a look at their website […]
Ryobi is heading down the dual-battery system road with their new Ryobi 18V One+ 10-Inch Miter Saw. This latest addition to the One+ lineup makes use of a series connection to create a 36V tool using two 18V batteries. The benefit is that you’ll unlock more powerful tools without having to leave the immensely popular […]
You have to admit that DeWalt’s introduction of the DeWalt FlexVolt Table Saw is a bold move. Lithium Ion technology has advanced far enough to satisfy once skeptical tradesmen who thought battery power couldn’t supplant AC power in drills and saws. But now in table saws, too? A failure at this point would still be considered a […]
As cordless tools continue their meteoric rise thanks to lithium-ion technology, circular saws are finally catching up. For a while, we had to be content with 6-1/2-inch models that have what it takes to get the job done, but with a little loss in capacity and not-so-corded power. Now 7-1/4-inch models are making headway with […]
