WOOD magazine review

Great saw, but be ready to blow away dust

Review Summary

This saw earned high marks for its absence of blade deflection, low vibration, powerful motor, comfortable handle and trigger (despite having the variable-speed dial located there), and a shoe that tilts tool-free. But the poor performance of its dust blower makes cutting along a line difficult, and though its blade clamp proves easy to open and close, it’s hard to tell when a blade is fully installed without tugging on it.
