At just 2.4  pounds with the battery, it delivers a super-portable cordless solution for smaller cutting tasks.

WORX 20V 3-inch Mini Cutter Features

This isn’t the first 3-inch mini saw we’ve seen. We reviewed both the SMC Mastermind 3-inch circular saw and the Dremel Saw-Max. These kinds of tools excel at smaller cutting projects like tile or PVC cutting. Because you can make the cut on-site, you don’t need to keep leaving the area to get to a larger tool like a circular saw. The tool lacks any dust collection, so keep that in mind as you work, however. Concrete, though mentioned by Worx, would seem to be outside the scope of this tool if you worry about silica dust.

I got the Milwaukee version and love it, I’m already into the M12 battery system so it made sense and it has been a very handy tool to have around, I’m finding lots of uses. It is more expensive but comes with the dust collection and bed plate which I find very useful, the big feature that I love is that it’s reversible. This is a great tool at a decent price, it will probably be a hit.
