I expected little better than the old 18v saws when I bought this, to get myself out of a jamb. This saw has been used in every way imaginable, including cutting grout and masonry with abrasive discs attached, and cutting 2" shoulders in white oak for timber frame tenons. The light and blower of the next step up Makita saw would be nice (I am online to buy that one), but, this saw has performed flawlessly for 17 months. Spindle lock and on- board tool storage make blade changes easy, great power for a cordless tool, and durable. My corded circular saws only come out when I have a specific task for the 16 5/16" Makita or the worm drive with the track attachment, the 7 1/4" saws have the same film of dust on their cases as my corded drills. That said, I have several LXT tools and batteries. This would not be the best saw for someone who only has one or two batteries and limited patience.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting, versatile

No, I do not recommend this product.
This saw didn't fit my existing battery...even though it seemed like it should have. I had to return it and continue to look for a saw compatible with my existing batteries.
Pros: Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
Cons: restricted battery compatability
