From admittedly fairly limited research I noticed that all corded circular saws have blade on the right of the handle, whereas battery operated ones have the blade on the left. What is the reasoning behind that?
Ok, so in light of the comments: somehow, all the saws I came by so far follow this pattern, this is why I asked. Let me ask this then: why are blades on different sides then?
I guess the last edit makes this question a duplicate of this: Why does a cordless circular saw have the blade on the left?
