HITACHI C7SB2 Circular Saw With No Riving Knife


I am considering upgrading to a pro circular saw after having worn out two DIY models from lengthy but not rough usage, so I have plenty of experience cutting timber. I was thinking about buying the HITACHI C7SB2 model. It has plenty of power 1700 watt, but no riving knife (It is designed for plunge cuts). Would it be difficult to steer the saw and prevent it binding? How about following a line marked on timber, would it still be easy enough to do this?

HITACHI C7SB2 Circular Saw With No Riving Knife


a riving knife on a circ saw?????? never heard or seen this and im a carpenter by trade.. you must be talking about a table saw.. the only attachments for circular saws that even come close to what your talking about are rip guides which act as a fence when your making rip cuts and want to keep the peice the same width all the way along

if in fact you are talking about a circ saw and want something to keep the wood from binding up the saw the simplest thing to do is to take a butt chisel and slip it in between the offcut and the piece you want to keep it from closing up and binding the blade

I think there must have been an error in the advertising blurb on the online store. There doesn't appear to be any reference to this in the product manual. Anyway thanks for the reply!
