What are the different types of power saws?

There are many types of mains and battery powered saws to suit a variety of cutting tasks for jobs like carpentry, construction, metalworking and DIY projects. Models include various features such as safety guards, laser guides and dust extraction technology to ensure a safer, dust-free working environment.


Different saws can perform different cuts, so knowing which type of saw you need can save both time and money. Take a look at our guide below to help you find the best one for the job.


Circular Saws

These powerful tools use a circular disc blade to make precise cuts through a range of materials including wood, metal, paving and plastic. They come in various sizes and designs and can be used for a variety of cutting tasks such as rip cuts, mitre cuts, crosscuts and bevel cuts.



A handheld power tool that uses reciprocating blades for making straight, curved and complex cuts in a variety of materials such as wood, metal, plastic, laminate, and ceramic tiles. The blade moves up and down at high speed and the user can adjust the angle and direction of the blade to achieve different types of cuts and shapes. With variable speed settings and the ability to adjust the bevel range from 0-45 degrees, this is a useful tool for a wide range of applications.


Reciprocating Saws

Also known as a Sawzall, these power tools are often used in demolition projects as they have the capability to cut through a wide range of materials such as metal, concrete, wood, plasterboard and masonry. Its reciprocating straight toothed blade allows for precise, quick and efficient cuts. The blade can be changed for different cutting tasks and materials.


Mitre Saws

These power saws are best used to cut metal, plastic, laminate and wood, and they can also cut through harder materials with the right blades. They are commonly used in carpentry projects for interior mouldings such as skirting, decorative trim and frames. These saws can be used for a variety of cuts including mitre cuts, crosscuts and bevel cuts depending on the model you choose.


They come in three types; standard, compound, and sliding. Standard models can be used for crosscuts and mitre cuts, while compound models also have the option to tilt the blade to make bevel cuts. Sliding models can perform crosscuts, mitre cuts and bevel cuts. The sliding option has a mechanism that enables the blade to glide back and forth on its rails allowing for greater depth and cutting capacity making it better suited for cutting wider, thicker material.


Table Saws

Commonly used for woodworking projects including carpentry, furniture making and cabinetry, table saws can be used to achieve crosscuts, rip cuts, mitre cuts, dado, square cuts and rabbet cuts.


They come in both portable (tabletop) and non-portable (cabinet) versions. Cabinet saws are often seen in professional woodworking workshops and are larger and more powerful than the tabletop type. Both varieties use a circular blade that protrudes from the base. Cutting is achieved by feeding the material into the blade. The height and bevel of the blade can be adjusted to execute a range of different cuts.


Plunge Saws

hese are great for making highly accurate cuts that can be harder to achieve with other types of saws. They are used to cut sheet materials, wood, laminate, and some types of metal such as aluminium.


The circular blade is mounted on a track allowing for accurate and straight cutting without the need for guides or clamps. They can perform a range of cuts including crosscuts, rip cuts and bevel cuts, and can also be used for plunge cutting where the blade is lowered onto the material at any point along the track.


Tile Saws

A tiler’s best friend, tile saws can cut through incredibly tough materials such as stone, ceramic, porcelain, paving and marble. They use a circular diamond blade and come in either wet or dry options. Wet tile saws are more popular as they have a water reservoir that cleans and cools the blade, while the dry options usually have dust extraction systems.


This tool can perform straight, diagonal, notched and curved cuts with precision.



Bandsaws are a versatile piece of kit commonly used in both woodworking and metalworking. This power tool uses a toothed blade that is looped between two wheels - one above the table and one below - to allow for a continuous sawing action. Material is fed into the blade for highly accurate cutting. This machine can be used for a variety of cutting techniques including straight, curved and complex cuts.
