DeWalt’s DWE575SB 7 1/4-inch circular saw is designed to be lightweight, compact, and durable. It weighs less than 9 pounds and has a 15-amp motor that spins the blade at 5,200 rpm. It also has an integrated dust blower that keeps the cut line clear, and a reinforced connection where the cord meets the body of the tool. An electric brake stops the blade in less than three seconds, making repetitive cuts that much faster. The saw can bevel up to 57 degrees and has a 2 9/16-inch depth of cut. Price: $129. 800-433-9258. dewalt.com.
