  • This is the finest power tool I own

    Sep 16, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: There is nothing cheap about this tool. A bargain at only $100.
    Cons: None. Period.

    Summary: A cheap power tool is clumsy, noisy, slow, ruins wood, flimsy, and can be dangerous. If all that is just fine with you, do not buy this tool. Save money and go buy that $40 disposable thing from Wal-Mart, with a cheap motor, steel-tooth blade, and a ... read more

  • "Heaven...I'm in Heaven" or Who Needs Blue?

    Dec 24, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Left-side blade, 15amp motor, it's black.
    Cons: Dust chute isn't integrated like new models, it took so long to make this!

    Summary: Whoa Whoa Whoa Let me see a show of hands for everyone who is right handed...Keep those hands up if your saw blade is on the right...OK, now form a line, we have support groups for your frustrations. "My Neck Hurts" Maybe you don't ... read more

  • Awesome, professional grade saw

    Oct 24, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful, Blade Left is neat. A manly saw.
    Cons: Case is a little small and the sawdust chute is a pain to install.

    Summary: My first experience with this saw was as a youngster on a construction site. I was but a lowly inspector/concrete tester that needed to build a box to keep concrete samples from freezing. The contractor pointed me to a pile of scrap 3/4" plywood and ... read more

  • Does the job for which it was built.

    Dec 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Appears to be solidly built.
    Cons: Heavy, rough and ready. No rip guide. Case is too small.

    Summary: I recently bought this saw from The Home Depot. The only circular saws I've used before are a Delta table saw for ripping and a Craftsman radial arm saw for cross cutting. These are both table-mounted, rock steady and run on 240V. I'm wary of all ... read more

  • This Saw Rocks!

    Nov 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of power, very smooth, no vibration, lightweight
    Cons: price?

    Summary: My first Porter Cable tool was a sander that I got for Christmas last year. I loved that sander. Compared to the Black and Decker sander that I had used for 2 years, before it literally fell apart, it was heaven. When I decided that I needed a Circular ... read more

  • L/H saw is WAY better for R/H guys.

    Jun 30, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, and the left hand blade makes a remarkable difference in ease of use.
    Cons: Dust tube doesn't help, cord doesn't fit well in case, rip fence costs extra.

    Summary: For years, I have wished that the blade on my circle saw were on the other side of the motor. The usual blade placement always seemed to put the blade where you had to stain your neck looking around your elbow, to see your cut line. That ain't no fun ... read more

  • Porter Cable Left Blade Circular Saw is a winner.

    Aug 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well built. Plenty of power.
    Cons: The saw dust spout is a mess when it is windy.

    Summary: When my wife and I decided to build a deck, I figured it was time to buy a circular saw. After speaking to some of my friends and relatives in the construction business, I decided on a Porter Cable saw. On a recommendation, I bought a left-handed model ... read more

  • Great Buy

    Pros: Great deal, Buy one.
    Cons: You pay for quality!

    Summary: I brought a porter-Cable circular saw about three years ago. I have used this saw over the past few years. I have had no problems with this saw. I have used it on numerous job sites, and in many different operations. This saw is heavy enough that it can ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light weight, more powerful than competitors, well designed.
    Cons: cord does not fit easily in case.

    Summary: Recently the Porter-Cable Corporation was selected by IndustryWeek magazine as one of the top 10 manufacturing plants in North America. And when you take a look at their model# 743 circular saw it is easy to see why. My Porter-Cable circular saw was my ... read more

    Pros: Reliability,ease of use,price
    Cons: none

    Summary: I bought this saw from the PC site,refurbished about a year ago. I've always used a blade-right saw to date.This is not a saw for "left handers",it's a blade-left saw! It has plenty of power,easy to control and only an idiot would complain about it ... read more

  • Left Hand Saws

    Dec 6, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: None
    Cons: Left Handed, Bulky

    Summary: If you're right handed a left handed saw does give you a better view of the cut, which is probably why it's become almost a standard for battery powered saws. On the other hand it's not very safe when you reach the end of a cut and the saw falls away ... read more
