This is my new go-to saw for small to medium sized projects. It cuts 2x easily so it is more than a trim saw. It has excellent ergonomics. It is well balanced. It is light weight. Cuts are clean and accurate. With the blade located on the left of the saw, you can see the cut easily and won't miss not having a laser guide. I would recommend using an XCP Lithium Ion battery with it.
19.2V seems to be very weak for a circular saw. In using it to cut dados on 2x2 lumber does not last more than 5-6 minutes on full charge
it came without battery and as it is outdated hard to find the compatible battery.
It’s light and very easy to use. I really like the sight guide. Makes it easy to follow your line and make straight cuts
I take the craftsman 19.2V portable saw with me as we travel across the country in our RV. Comes in handy and is light weight. Goes with rest of my craftsman tools. Well made. I have several batteries and chargers that come with other tools. If you don’t have any 19.2V craftsman tools you will need to also purchase charger and battery.
