    i use battery saws to cut hardi plank siding because they turn at 1000 rpms of less and there is minimal dust. they have appox. 3 3/8 carbide blades. the speed is the key to dust free cutting. i am tired fo battery's because of the extreme cold and there low life span. i want a tool that has a cord. what is out there that will turn at these low rpms.

    Check out the Milwalke metal cutting circular saw. It should accept a wood blade, and it turns about 3500 RPM whereas a typical skill saw I believe turns about 4500 RPMs.

    Harbor frieght sells a cheapo version in store only.

        I've seen a number of favorable write-ups on this saw on various web sites and in a couple mags.
