12 amp is now the best you
can get at that entry level price.
We got this 40 dollar Skil circular saw last week and it
seems to be just as strong as its 13 amp counter part, but it's sort of
an unfair comparison seeing how the new saw had a fresh and sharp
blade. Time will tell if the downgrade in motor capacity will have a
noticeable effect. Our use will be low to medium, so we won't be the
best gauge, but I plan to update this review in a year or two because
power tools are beautiful and photogenic.
