Review Summary

I've got several different brands of these and they all seem to work well and are invaluable in the construction industry. This brand has been very reliable and useful over the years for me , especially with the upgraded features over the lesser models I have, such as the quick change blade and adjustable shoe. These types of saws do tend to be a little heavy an awkward to use, which requires some practice to use accurately.
