Later, I purchased the Porter Cable 743 and fell in love with it, primarily because of its light weight and blade position. Finally, a few years ago the Festool ATF 55E became our primary panel cutting circular saw, due to its better dust collection, cleaner cut, and integrated guide rail system. The height and angle scales are easy to read, they're accurate, and offer excellent granularity. The shoe pivot is designed to keep the hand low and to the rear regardless of the height of the blade.
The PC 743 is lighter, better balanced, and the left-mounted blade is great for right-handers. Both machines have more than adequate power, though I believe the DeWALT has slightly more. The PC 743 is considerably less expensive for similar or better performance in several key areas. I own or have owned a number of circular saws including a Craftsman, a Skil 5170, a DeWALT 364, the PC 743, and more recently, the Festool ATF. As a general purpose or framing saw, you can't go wrong with either the DeWALT 364 or the PC743.

Especially for a jobsite saw, construction saw, or any application where the saw will end getting thrown around or abused. Until lately, we used it almost daily for panel cutting and I can finish-cut large sheet goods without a problem.

In fact the angled dust port shoots it right at you if you're using the saw from the right side. The PC743 scale is difficult to read and the increments are too large to be totally useful. The DeWALT 364 is no slouch, but for my money, the PC 743 is the saw I would recommend without hesitation as a framing and general purpose saw. On the basis that it is lighter and has the left-mounted blade, I do better free-hand work with the PC743.
I replaced the CMT (moved it to the PC743) with a Forrest WWII, which surprisingly performs worse than the CMT on crosscuts in hardwood veneer plywoods. However, the design of the DW364 pivot keeps the handle in the same location (low and to the rear) through out the height adjustment.
The distance between the edges of the DW364 shoe and the blade don't fall on an even measurement. The stamped PC743 scale is easy enough to read, but does not have the range nor granularity of the DeWALT.
It's lighter and the left-mounted blade is easier to use than standard right-mounted blade saws (for a right hander). But don't get me wrong, the DW364 is a great circular saw, and most anyone would be more than happy with it, especially left-handers.
The exhaust air is filtered to prevent fine particles from coming out the other end of the saw. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's suggested retail price, the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price without further action. It also directs cutting debris straight back rather than to right even when not connected to a dust extraction system. What little I know about this machine comes from the manufacturer’s website and a video starring Matt Risinger and my co-worker, product editor Lauren Hunter.

You may either login with your account to see the price or place the item in your shopping cart. I replaced the standard blade with an aftermarket blade and worked very well with our shop-made guides and panel-cutting table. The video (below) was shot earlier this year at the International Builder’s Show.Roan’s saw is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of this year and will have an MSRP of around $180. These steps allow us to show you our price consistent with our goal of offering the lowest price on a wide selection of hardware products.
However, the Festool ATF beats both saws with its dust collection, guide system, ergonomics, light weight and balance, and finer cut.
It will be distributed alongside James Hardie fiber-cement siding, and is intended to help builders comply with a proposed OSHA rule, which if enacted, will reduce the permissible exposure limit (PEL) of respirable crystalline silica to 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air. Fiber-cement siding is but one of many building materials that contain crystalline silica, which exists in the dust produced by cutting or grinding the material dry.
But those methods have problems; they’re slower than cutting with circular blades and can leave rough edges. Contractors who wish to comply with the standard may be better served by a dust-collecting saw. Ridgid’s R3401 has a built-in exhaust fan that blows dust out through a hose and into a drywall bucket with a special filter bag on top.
Several other dust collecting saws are available but all require the use of a hose and vacuum.The manufacturer posted a video of the saw cutting various materials and says it collects 75% of the dust. It’s impossible to verify that claim but it’s clear that the saw collects a large percentage of the dust.
