Just picked up the new flex volt 60 volt circular saw yesterday. I have been waiting for this one to arrive as I got a screaming good deal on it. Its a bit heavier than I expected but all the controls are exactly like my old Sawcat. No cord to drag around though. It has a light which in my opinion is a waste of time. All and all it looks and feels pretty good. It has an auto brake and comes with a wrench that hides under the handle. I was a little disappointed that it didn't come with the rip gauge or the locking wing nut for said gauge ( not that I have ever used them but guess those are extra). Came with a new 7-1/4 blade as well.
The battery is what I am most interested in as it goes from 20 - 60 volts ( actually 18-58 ish volts) Was ripping 18 ft cedar yesterday with it and it acts just like my 120 volt saw. No hesitation at all. Tried cutting some wet wood too and it didn't slow it down at all. I didn't have much heavy use for it yet but it seems to have dropped one bar on the battery pack. I didn't get the ultra quick charger pack that comes with it as I have 5 chargers already so it will charge slower which isn't really a bad thing. will see once its dead as to how long it takes to charge on the regular charger. Will let you know how it holds up in the coming days.
