WORX Compact Circular Saw: 4-1/2 WX429L
Here is the Worx WX429L compact and lightweight circular saw that maneuvers and transports easily from job site to job site weighing just 4.5 lbs. It was born to cut through wood such as 2″ nominal lumber materials. Carpenters, especially the siding guys, will enjoy the ergonomics of this compact circular saw as you’ll benefit from the balance and control the safety trigger and grip deliver. You will cut through 2x4s in one single pass with the 4-1/2″ blade.
The circular saw is roughly 50% more lightweight than other conventional circular saws that are 7-1/4 ” and it offers a clear line of cut. Since users will need minimum effort when cutting and less motor strain to cut material, the 4 Amp 3500 RPM saw will match any full-size circular saw’s performance. We like the clean workspace the circular saw provides with the dust extraction port that includes a 1-1/4″ vacuum adapter that is built for dust and debris collecting for delivering a cleaner work environment.

The circular saw comes with a single 24-tooth carbide blade. It has a nice "blade lock" button that will make changing the blade a much easier experience (as long as you remember the allen bolt is a reverse thread!). The maximum depth of cut at 90° and is just under 2", so make sure you're cutting 2x material or thinner.
Weight comparable to an angle grinder, so very comfortable to hold. Safety switches underneath and in front of the squeeze trigger readily available. Initial inspection of blade cover, fence, and sliding blade cover is tight; well fit; solid plastic guards with pressed metal fence. At initial starting of the motor, little rotational torque ( a slight chance for the saw to "jump" in hand), so should be easy to stay on line.
Overall, this saw works terrific on small jobs where you are working with limited materials like 2x up to 8" wide. We think for the much greater in width materials such as 4x's, and new or extensive construction we'll have to a worm drive.
