Dust free: Unsuccessful placement on the suction system. Here it was by no means dust free. Photo: Øivind Lie

About the Test:

In the test, all cases are tested on all relevant materials. We have cut up plates and construction work at different angles. The only thing we’ve kept away is cleavage. You must leave it to tools with a lead for a while. After testing the capacity and battery life, we have cut 48 x 198 slices and calculated how many each case is doing.

The test was performed by Kenneth Lesteberg. He is a bass and carpenter, and works at Veidekke department Follo.

The cases are rated from one to six where six are best.

It’s been a long time since the previous tool test, just to admit. The last test was rabbit and yeast, but now we are going again. We have tested rechargeable circular cases.

New battery technology and smart designs have made this a tool that can make the lead version unemployed.

With one exception: Cleavage of coarse dimensions.

The bags are compact and weigh only 3-4 kilos. The lightest and most compact are almost as easy to carry as a battery grill, whether you’re going to work on the roof, in the basement, around the scaffold or on a cabin without power.

The best of the cases can handle construction work up to 48 millimeters thick.

With two batteries and fast chargers, you can work continuously without waiting for charging.



Should you cut straight and after the line, you are dependent on seeing the point where the blade hits what is being cut. This is what we call the zero point. Here there must be open line of sight so that you can see the zero point from both sides of the magazine.

A circular saw should also have a good grip and be easy to adjust in depth and angle. It is important to have good, easily accessible handles that are easy to use. Here, there should also be scales that are easy to read.

The visor must open easily and not bite up, it creates irritation.

Has the manufacturer put on useful enhancements, we hate it too. Here a led light that lights down at the zero point is a good example.

Vacuum cleaner and suction is useful when working indoors. At best, this works almost dust free, but in some cases we suspect this is something that the engineers have reluctantly put on after they have finished the story.

Build Quality

A rechargeable circular saw is a big compromise. Much of the point is that it should be compact and light, almost so you can hang it in the belt. At the same time, the construction must be rigid and solid.

Something that means expensive or heavy and powerful materials. Particularly the base must be full wood.

Is it too small or thin and soft, it quickly gets jammed. Likewise, the plant is a small but important detail. A short plant in soft steel is strictly more a trouble maker than an aid.

Slipping and failure in suspension and joints are also completely unacceptable. Then it will be bad and crooked when you add weight to the story.

The visor itself is an exposed part, we realize that plastic is used here to save weight, but it should still be of a high quality and without slark.

The scales must be easy to read, in addition it is important that they are not worn out. Really top is when they are tempted and not just put on a sticker.

Trailing levers and wound switches are annoying. Here there must be proper quality and everything must be easy and effortless.


In order to get approved grades, such a case must be able to cut 48 millimeters thick construction work. It is our opinion, and the easier and more effortless saga jobs, the better it is.

When it comes to service life, two batteries, combined with a quick charger, allow you to work continuously – without waiting for the batteries to be recharged.

Some of the cases come with only one battery, which you must include in the assessment when you look at the price.
