Customer reviewsI don t think you ll be disappointed.
I replaced my older Porter Cable saw with this one and I m very pleased so far. This saw is loaded with power. Out of the box the blade was square. My Porter Cable wasn t a slide saw and there s no comparison when it comes to cutting wide stock lumber. I cut through 2 x12 boards in one pass with no problem. Some people complained about the laser but I don t see their problem. It works fine. I like that the laser doesn t work separately off of batteries as my Porter Cable did and half the time wouldn t work , though I don t rely on the laser except to sometimes to check my line to the squareness of where the actual cut will be. As for the dust collection....yes it could be better. I used an extra vac hose that fits my 6 gal. shop vac. The largest end fits perfectly into the dust port of the saw. However, you end up with a hose coming out of the saw port that is the same size as the hose coming out of the shop vac that won t connect together. What I did was cut an end off an extra section I had from a floor wand extension just the end that fits over the end of the vac hose, as if you were attaching it to your vac. It will only be about 3 long but It works as a coupler to attach both hoses together. It fits nice and tight. Problem solved and you have a nice long hose. Of course it doesn t vac every minute particle of dust but it s as good as it s going to get. I did a lot of research and without spending big bucks for highly professional saws I don t think this one can be beat. As the saying goes This ain t my first rodeo .
