WOOD magazine review

Soft-start motor and 5-year warranty

Review Summary

+ Hits: One of only two tested models with a soft-start motor, it does not “kick” at start-up and shutdown. It’s the only saw in the test to identify angle settings for crown molding with a 45° spring angle, and it still has the traditional crown-molding stops. Blade changes were easiest on this unit because the blade guard locks out of the way and the arbor locks in place. It comes with a 5-year warranty. – Misses: Table pivoting felt stiffer than most when changing miter settings.
This model’s vertical handle was less comfortable in our hands than a horizontal handle. There’s no onboard storage for the blade-changing tool and it lacks table extensions.
