Customer reviewsWay too heavy for me - returned it.
And whoever decided a circular saw needed a safety switch on it, was wrong. I had to use two hands to push the safety button and quickly pull the on trigger. No thank you Dumb, dumb, dumb feature. It reminds me of all the lighters with safety switches on them. It works the same way, but on a tool that is HEAVY and requires 2 hands to manipulate.
