Review Summary

Great saw.Smooth cut and packed with features. I only wish it had a better dust capture system. The capture opening is way too small. If you use this saw in a fixed location close to a wall you will have wood chips everywhere. Other than the chip capture, the saw is awesome.

One of the better shop miter saws.

Review Summary

I've used this saw for probably over ten years now and it has been accurate and reliable. I've never had to readjust the settings on it in all those years. It's a heavy duty versatile miter saw. I too wished that the dust collection receptacle was larger and that it had come with an on-board clamp. Otherwise an awesome saw set up. In my opinion a little to heavy for on the job transport. I was fortunate to find this at a wholesale tool distributor for $375.00.
So for me it has been a good value
