    Will this saw be able to cut through a 75x75cm post: R185CCSX - 185mm Circular Saw?

    No, but a hand saw will;)

    Handsaw is fine.

    So this won’t get through a post? Really?

    Yes, if you rotate the post whilst cutting.

    64mm cut at 90 degrees, but is the 3x3 really 3x3

    Not in one pass, no. You’ll need a 235mm saw.

    Do they make 235 circular saw?

    I have a 235 mitre, but want to trim posts that I’ve cemented into our field for a veg patch after I’ve attached my paling fence.

    No they don’t, I just thought I’d get your hopes up and pluck a number from thin air to try to up my post count........

    Yes mate, they do make 235mm circular saws. They make bigger too if required, but in your scenario I’d use a chainsaw if the finish doesn’t have to be neat, or a smaller lighter 165mm circular saw and finish with a handsaw, cutting something holding the saw on its side like what you propose is awkward and heavy going. I don’t see why you don’t just use a handsaw mind, five 3x3’s won’t take long to cut and a handsaws only a tenner or so.

    I’ve got good handsaws, so will probably do that. Also have a chainsaw, but the finish may just be too rough. It’ll be a good arm workout.

    It’ll be 20 posts when they all in the ground. Definitely a good arm workout.
