Review:

I wanted to give five stars. This is clearly an amazing tool. Small, light, and effective. I’m perplexed at all the reviews stating this saw won’t cut stuff or is too weak. It’s a battery powered saw with a 3-3/8 inch blade! Smaller, lighter, and less powerful than larger saws. Simple logic tells us it’s not going to cut nearly as fast or with as much force as a corded 7-1/4 inch or larger saw. I’ve used it a few times on some 3/4 inch common wood, cutting and ripping. It takes longer than a bigger corded saw, but it gets the job done with less noise and less hassle (cords and sawdust spray.)

Review:

I bought this to rip some fence panels and it works great. It is easy to keep on track and make very accurate cuts with. My only complaint is that it will eat up some juice on your batteries. I only have 1.5 Amp hour batteries and I can only cut about 3 boards at a time. I ordered some bigger batteries for it.I just moved into an older home and have used it everyday in every room and have no trouble lifting and moving it around. It is very sturdy and I feel safe climbing up and down on it. An excellent buy for what I needed and now some of my friends want one.
