Winner of the Taunton Press 2005 Best Value award, the C7SB2 features a single-phase 120-volt, 15 Amp motor that generates a no-load saw speed of 5,800 RPM and an output of up to 2,100 watts.

The 7-1/4-inch, 24-tooth, carbide-tipped blade with 5/8-inch arbor powers through tough cuts with ease. It has a 1-27/32″ depth of cut at 45 degrees and a 2-3/8″ depth of cut at 90 degrees. And with a cutting depth lever, the C7SB2 makes it easy to select the right depth for the job.

Perfect for a Wide Range of Beveling Applications
The C7SB2 Circular Saw is capable of not only making accurate 90-degree cuts, but it can also make clean bevels from 0-55 degrees in just about any common framing material.

An adjustable lever makes it easy to find the bevel stops at 0, 45, and 55 degrees. It helps keep your blade true and accurate by locking the blade in place at the desired angle. A blade guard protects your hands during angled cuts, and a spindle lock provides an extra level of safety.

Full of User-Friendly Features
The C7SB2 has a host of features that will make your next cutting job as easy as can be. To start, a one-piece die-cast aluminum alloy base features easy-to-read front and side scales for accurate measurements.

The non-slip Elastomer-grip handle keeps you in complete control of the tool and provides comfort for all-day jobs. What’s more, this saw weighs only 10.1 pounds, so it is extremely easy to maneuver and transport.

To top it all off, an easily accessible carbon brush lets you replace the brush as needed to prolong the life of the tool.

The C7SB2 Circular Saw is backed by a five-year limited warranty.

Good circular saw value I compared the Hitachi C7SB2 to several other saws in its price range and chose the C7SB2 for the following reasons:* Lever locks used for blade height and angle adjustment instead of wing nuts or knobs. My old saw used wing nuts that are difficult to tighten and loosen.* Aluminum saw base makes the saw lighter and feels more solid than pressed steel bases.* Blade lock makes it easy to change saw blades.* Replaceable brushes for easy maintenance.* Carrying case…

Purchase the Hitachi C7BD2 Instead Consumer Reports (August 2005 Issue) reviewed this saw and recommended it as a Best Buy. If your budget allows, I would recommend going with the Hitachi C7BD2 (also a CR Best Buy). The C7BD2 includes an electric brake for much quicker stopping of the blade and therefore better safety. Like the C7BD2 this saw has a powerful 15 Amp motor and a sturdy alumimum base.I also wish both saws had better depth adjustment (there are no measurement markings to approximate the depth of cut)…

Not bad for the price I purchased new from Amazon for $69.95 which is a good deal. However if the price is over $100 your better off getting the Dewalt for an additional $15-$20. This saw is lightweight and powerful. It is a great home owner saw for occasional use. For full time construction/carpentry use, it falls short of the Dewalt, Makita, or Portacable. The carry case does not have a place for the wrench and the rip fence, which is not a big deal, but wrapping the power cord and closing the case is a challenge…
