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.
The thin grip on the 20V mini cutter contains a top-mounted, on/off slide switch. The Worx WX801L also has a lock-on button for extended use. Finally, a spindle lock makes cutting blade or abrasive changes easy. The kitted version of the tool includes a compact 1.5 Ah 20V battery.
