    We use a Dewalt cordless circular saw. Use a level to plumb all of your posts and pickets.

    On the circular saw turn the blade backward, less breakoffs and splintering.

    Here is a quote from this vinyl fence site.

    "The material cuts easily with a hacksaw. "


    Another site suggests using a "saber saw to enlarge rail hole."

    I installed some at my house today, sawzall worked good. My circular saw worked ok but you have to be careful.
