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?
