    Default Large Circular Saw

    Hi,

    Am looking to purchase a new cordless circular saw that will cut deeper than my current 65mm saw. I find it very frustrating when building that I have to always finish off cuts by hand.

    Currently all Dewalt tools so my first option is cordless large blade Circular saw. I need to be able to plunge cut 90mm minimum but will buy a cord powered saw if I have to.....any ideas?

    I am in Australia too so makes it a bit more difficult.

    Dream on dingdong, 235mm cordless don't exist, and even if they did they still won't cut 90mm, maximum is 85 - 87mm.

    Learn to cut from both sides cutting around 47mm per side, with some practice you will get it perfect.

    Not sure why being in Australia is a problem, even in the centre of the universe USA they don't have what you want.

    What exactly are you cutting? Anything that you can't use a drop saw / SCMS on?

    As matrix stated no one does or probably ever will make a cordless version.

    As long as the wall joist are secured against the floor studs, all is OK

    That is not a saw

    This is a saw
