Like Skil’s “LaserX2” — which we mentioned back in June — Ryobi’s new “dual-laser” circular saw projects two parallel laser beams to show not only the line along which the saw’ll cut, but also the area of material that’ll be lost to the blade. (The area between the two beams represents waste.) Ryobi’s calling this the “Exactline Laser Alignment System.”
Besides the abundance of lasers, this is essentially the same 7-1/4″ corded circular saw that they’ve offered for some time. Features include a bevel adjustible from 0 to 51.5 degrees with positive stops at 45 and 51.5 degrees (“for compound rafter cuts,” says Ryobi), a spindle lock, a dust chute to facilitate vacuum hookup (for almost dustless cutting), and a 10′ power cord.
As usual, it’s available exclusively at Home Depot, currently for $69 according to their website. That’s a little less than the Skil, though careful shopping puts them pretty much in the same cart.
