Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Cordless Saw Reviews

Our cordless saw reviews cover cordless miter saws, cordless circular saws, and cordless reciprocating saws. Then you have the one-handed models, specialty saws, and other tools. There’s even the DeWalt cordless table saw, a product once thought unthinkable (or at least impractical). We expect more and more of these high power cordless saws to hit the market over the next few years. Cordless Saw Reviews for Construction Pros With such a wide segment of tools, cordless saw reviews are a bit varied. The most popular category clearly includes our cordless circular saw shootout followed by cordless miter saws. While cordless circ saws have dominated job sites for years, the cordless miter saw breaks fresh ground. These powerful yet compact cross-cutting tools have literally changed the way Pro work on the jobsite. When you can pull a cordless miter saw off your truck and get right to work, that’s progress. As dust collection and vibration control improve, more and more of these products implement better safety and ergonomics. Look for that in our individual and head to head reviews.
