    Hilti Circular saws?

    Does anyone have experience with Hilti circular saws? I saw a great deal on the WSC 167.
    $100 new in the box and was wondering what people think of them. I may jump on it.
    I could cry for the time I've wasted, but thats a waste of time and tears.

    I have the 267e, I'm not familiar with the 167. The 267 fits the Festool rail system and has electronic speed control, plus the dust collection is quite good (I assume it is not as good as a Festool).

    If the 167 uses the Festool rail system I'd probably go for it.

    The WSC 167 is a re-branded Porter-Cable circular saw. But don't let that discourage you - it's a fine saw. But not in the same league as the 267.

    Agreed. But what I don't remember is if this Hilti has a brake? If not, I don't believe a note is really a bargain.
