I had long seen twin blade saws on display at The Home Depot or Lowe's and wondered if they really made cutting easier, faster, and cleaner.
No twin blade saw will cut faster than a single blade circular saw. But the other two claims--easier and cleaner--are absolutely true.
I tried out a standard, off-the-shelf model that anybody can pick up at their local Home Depot: the 5 inch TwinBlade from RIDGID. It retails for around $149.00 and, thank goodness, is a corded model. I don't know about you, but I've got enough chargers cluttering my workbench. Besides, you really need that kind of power. Lithium ion batteries just won't "cut it."
