Summary: Plows through large pieces of wood without any issue.. It's really powerful and cuts really well. I did a bunch of work with very dense pieces a of 1.5 inches thick woods and this saw is cutting through them like nothing. The box is a big plus to keep it clean when you don't use it.
Summary: I've seen and used a lot of these types of saws but have never expected this to look and work and feel anything like this one, i'm extremely impressed with this saw and count the minutes till i need to use it again! P.s This saw looks way more professional grade then the price tag suggests!
Summary: The downside is that it is quite heavy, though that can be a advantage to keeping the saw stable when starting a cut. The aluminum base seems very rigid and gives confidence on keeping the cut on course. Nice hard case with space for a few additional blades though you have to be careful stowing the cord to keep it away from the blade. Hard case is much better than the bags supplied with my other DeWalt purchases.
