Iím looking for advice for what to get. I am a long frustrated handyman. I have had zero luck with handheld circular saws. I donít need anything industrial, but Iíd like something that will last a long time, be manageable enough for me to learn and be big enough to handle a piece of plywood.
I have pretty much decided on a Dewalt of some sort. Place near me is having a decent promotion on them. They have a portable one, but Iím sure how much Iím sacrificing (and whether what Iím sacrificing is beyond my needs anyhow). They also have a rechargeable battery operated unit.
Any carpenters out there?
I haven't done carpentry in almost 5 years, but I can give you a little input if you would like. Feel free to message me if you have any specific types of questions.
So for on job performance, nothing beats Dewalt brand in my eyes in terms of durability. If I am being honest though, for non handheld equipment, the gap in quality isnt huge.
And as a side note, my fathers company sold hardware for years, and he swears by dewalt products. Just my 2 cents.
