I wouldn't run a 13a saw on it unless it was a 20a circuit close to the breaker box. Charger should be fine...

Circular saws have universal motors. They handle low voltage much better than induction motors. Should be fine. If he uses it continuously, the connections may get hot, but nobody uses a portable saw that way.
Why wouldn't you run a 13A load on a 15A circuit (assuming the circuit wasn't already heavily loaded)?

Only draws 13 amps under full load. Just feed the saw in slowly, so it doesn't bog down too much. Slow cuts will take less amperage.

You might get by with it. If you measure what you need and cut the boards at the house you will have no problem at all and you will have less weight to carry all the way back to the fence.

Should work just fine for that low load charger. And the intermittent saw.
