I need to add to the review I gave on this saw that the dust bag is just extra weight. It should never need emptying. Still, it's a bargain. Just wear a dust mask.

I just bought one of these saws on sale for $79.99 because I needed the ability to cut wider lumber than my Hitachi chop saw can do. Also, I can't afford the same size Dewalt, Hitachi, etc all of which seem to start at $500.00.

I figured I'd have to tweak it some but this saw cut dead on accurate right out of the box. It's not as robust as the more expensive saws but it is well made and very adjustable when the need arises. Fortunately, for me, the one I bought is dark red, not that crappy orange that you normally see at HF.

The bad part. It is top heavy so it probably should be bolted down to a work table. The only other criticism I have right now is that the sliding action is not as smooth as the high dollar saws. But what the hey. This thing was $79.99.

It is not as accurate as I like. But I cut a whole house full of laminate flooring with this and it didn't blink. Also my version is the previous generation of this one. This update seems to be more solid and accurate. So I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. The 12in version is also a great choice, especially when it is on sale and a 20% coupon can be used.
