WORX WORXSAW 4-1/2″ Compact Circular Saw Review (WX429L Model)
The Worx brand is not as famous as some brands on the market; it is still a relatively new name in the market, but it has already had a significant impact on users. One of their products, the Worx WX429L Worxsaw Circular Saw is a good solution for individuals that require a tool capable of handling lightweight jobs around the home. From trimming small tree branches to cutting up pallets, this unit is ideal for various working conditions and applications.
This tool is fitted with a 4-1/2-inch 24-tooth general wood cutting blade. It has a cutting capacity of 1-11/16 inch and at 90 degrees; the 45-degree cutting depth is 1-1/8 inches. However, you cannot work on long panel cuts due to the blade’s size. If planning to make long accurate cuts, you may need to upgrade to a bigger capacity unit. But, if you are planning on doing some overhead work in tight areas, this is the tool for you. It also works fine on plywood.
The saw is capable of cutting your 2 x 4’s in one pass, and it’s easy to maneuver. The unit has a thin blade, which means you do not have to strain while using it. The result is a circular saw that offers you cutting speed and performance. The left-sided design of the blade provides you a great cut line visibility.
However, this doesn’t matter even if you are left-handed since the pointer is still easy to see no matter what side you are on. The grip is fitted with an integrated safety trigger and designed to offer you better balance, control, and comfort.
Bevel Cutting Capacity
Just like your regular full-sized circular saw, the WX429L is capable of making angled cuts. It has a bevel capacity of 0 to 45 degrees, and a guide on the unit helps you adjust to the desired angle depending on your application. The bevel angle and cutting depth adjustment levers are easy and fast to use. In the packaging, you will find a parallel guide, an Allen key, a vacuum adaptor and a carbide-tipped wood cutting blade.
The adjustable edge guide makes it much easier for you to attain a straight line, while the in-built vacuum port makes cleanup comfortable and much more efficient.
This is a corded electric saw that you could plug into any electric outlet and offers you a no-load speed capability of 3,500 Revolutions per Minute. The WX429L draws 4.0 Amps and is an excellent tool for DIYers. The long power cord allows you to move freely in your workspace. At only 4.4 lbs, this unit is easy to use with one hand, an excellent option for people with no power tool experience.
WORX WORXSAW: Conclusion
The Worx WX429L Worxsaw Circular Saw will not obviously replace a full-size circular saw. Its included 24-teeth woodcutter and adequate cutting power for its size make it a unit you’ll use for long. The manufacturer has included a three-year warranty on the product. This is a practical solution for anyone looking for a lightweight saw. Its accuracy and easy adjustment of cutting depth make this a nifty tool you will love in your shop.
