Weighing only 10.4 lbs. and delivering 3.25 maximum HP, this tool offers you 1 of the best power-to-weight ratios in the industry. The 15 Amp motor delivers up to 5800 RPM for power in cutting through tough materials, including headers, Microllams and wet lumber. The 7-1/4 in. blade offers superior visibility and a wide, clear sight line from either side.
As a professional remodeler, I have use a lot of circ. saws over the years. I love this saw most!
It feels right in the hand. The rear handle is adjustable for the user...more a "choose it once" thing than a "switch back and forth" as it's a bit difficult to chance, but at least its there.
The front grip is the best. It's very close to the body and table giving the user better control.
It has good power. Enough to cut through nails and layers of roofing if needed but not enough to jump back at the user when bound...that's a good thing.
The base is heavy duty and has not bent for me.
The blade height is easy to change and the bevel is also easy and very accurate.
This is a great saw.
