The new, 20V, 3-3/8 in. WORXSAW® Compact Circular Saw pushes portability and ease of handling to the limit. Not tethered by a power cord, the go-anywhere WORX® mini circular saw weighs only 4.1 lbs. (including battery), tackles a wide range of DIY projects and is exceptionally easy to maneuver.
The new cordless WORXSAW has a slim, inline grip with integrated safety trigger. Ergonomic design of its nylon-composite body provides comfortable, one-hand operation, especially when cutting overhead. A narrow base plate permits cutting in spaces that are too tight for standard, 7 ¼ in. circular saws to operate. The compact saw also features a left-sided blade design for unobstructed cut-line visibility.
The WORXSAW has a 3-3/8 in., thin-kerf blade that is less than half the thickness of a 7 ¼ in. circular saw blade. This smaller, thinner blade reduces resistance and motor strain when cutting through materials, which boosts efficiency. The saw’s no load speed is 2300 RPM.
The compact saw’s depth-of-cut is 1-11/16 in., making it ideal for making quick and precise cuts, including plunge cuts, in 1-by lumber. A depth-of-cut knob is turned to raise or lower the blade in 1/8-in. increments.
By changing blades, the saw also cuts flooring, plastics, ceramic tile, slate, aluminum and sheet metal. To switch blades, the operator simply loosens the blade screw with the provided hex key.
The cordless saw also features a dust extraction port with vacuum adapter attachment and a parallel edge guide to set up accurate rip cuts.
The WORXSAW is powered by a compact, 20V, MAX Lithium 1.5 Ah battery. As part of the WORX 20V Power Share program, the battery also is interchangeable with all WORX 20V lawn and garden and DIY tools, for cost savings and convenience.
The 20V, 3-3/8 in. WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw (WX523L, $99.99) includes the saw, 24T carbide-tipped blade, parallel guide, vacuum adapter, hex key, 20V Maxlithium battery (WA 3520) and 5-hr. charger. The 20V, 3-3/8 in. WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw also is available as a bare tool only (WX523L.9, $69.99).
The WORXSAW comes with a 3 year warranty and is available at http://www.worx.com.
The WORXSAW also accepts the new WORX 20V MAX 4.0 Ah battery (WA3578, $69.99), which provides 2-1/2times the run time as the 1.5 Ah battery.
