Best Cordless Circular Saws In 2024

Cordless circular saws are a staple power tool for carpenters, joiners, builders, and DIY enthusiasts alike. Armed with a robust circular serrated blade, these powerhouses make short work of softwood, hardwood and plywood, and cut perfectly straight lines for accurate and professional jobs.

Cordless power tools have advantages over their corded counterparts. Not only do they offer fewer trip hazards, but they also have far superior mobility than corded tools, especially for remote job sites where a power source is unavailable. Cordless circular saws are supported by spare batteries and chargers. Innovations in battery technology have given these power tools more runtime than ever before and can deliver cutting performance comparable to many corded models. 

In a market flooded with heavyweights like DeWalt and Makita, the question remains: which is the best cordless circular saw in 2024? In this guide, we’ll help you find the right tool for the job by showcasing our best sellers, industry favourites, and DIY favourites.
