Review

High Points One of only two tested saws (of 10) with a riving knife (if you choose to remove the blade guard). The arbor lock makes one-wrench blade changes quick and easy.
Its large off-switch was easy to reach and bump with a leg. Low Points We could not correctly calibrate the digital bevel display with the blade. Despite a blade shroud and 2-1⁄2" hose that connects to the 4" port, dust collection proved no better than models without a shroud. More Points The rip fence was solid and held with little deflection, but at 2-1/8" tall, it’s the shortest fence in the test of twelve by nearly 1/2". Because the heavy-duty arbor assembly rides vertically on four columns rather than a cantilevered arm, it’s more difficult to raise the blade. With an aluminum rip fence, the price drops to $1,470.
