The WX429L WORXSAW can essentially replace a DIYer's need for a full-size 7¼-inch circular saw. This saw was born to cut wood, especially 2-inch nominal lumber materials. This saw weighs only 4½ pounds, so it is easy to transport and maneuver. The grip and safety trigger provides great comfort, balance, and control. The 4½-inch blade cuts 2x4s in a single pass and is about 50% lighter than conventional 7¼-inch circular saws. Plus, the lightweight saw's left-sided blade design provides remarkable cut-line visibility. The saw's 4½-inch blade has a kerf that is less than half the thickness of larger 7¼-inch circular saw blades. Since this smaller, thinner blade takes much less effort and motor strain to cut through the material, the 4 Amp, 3500 RPM saw can match the performance of full-size circular saws. The saw's maximum cutting depth at 90 degrees is 1-11/16 inches and the bevel capactiy at 45 degrees is 1⅛ inches. The saw also features a dust extraction port and a 1¼-inch vacuum adapter for dust collection and a clean work environment.
