Best saw bar none

Review Summary

I have owned this saw for over five years. Still using the same blade. Cuts as good today as when I purchased it. I have used delta Bosch makita and rigid. Nothing cuts as accurately and as smoothly. It is also super light weight. The dust extraction is superb. Expensive? Yes! Worth it? Yes! I see people complain about the price, but after five years I do not have a single complaint, there have been no issues, adjustments, or quality degradation.
Haven't even had to re sharpen the blade. I cut reclaimed oak...no issues...maple, ply...no issues. No other tool in this category holds up like this one. Amazed and would buy another one, but I don't think I will ever have to. If you can afford it, do not hesitate...you won't be disappointed.
