The convenience of the Makita hand-held circular saw
The Makita hand circular saw proves how different construction methods can influence the weight. The weight of the machines varies depending on the model. This is due in particular to the design, whereby the mini hand circular saw has a lower weight than the large machines. Not only the weight is decisive for the carrying comfort, but also the owners, who want to take the machine with them to the construction site.
A rubber handle ensures that the machine case lies comfortably in the hand and that the weight is therefore easy to carry. This at least prevents accidental slipping. After all, the products can weigh between three and five kilograms. However, smaller offers sometimes weigh less than larger machines. When you make your purchase, you can still consider what importance the cutting depth has for you and whether you need a pronounced cutting depth. Otherwise, you are well advised to choose an alternative that weighs less than a Makita Mini Circular Saw.
