Summary: First saw I received did not function at all, trigger lock seemed to be jammed. Could not power on or plunge the saw. New replacement works, but has bearing growl. Going to have the local service center check it out rather than returning a second time. So far quality seems to be lacking.
Summary: Excellent saw for cutting bottoms on solid 1 3/4" doors,do not have to score the door before cutting,saw blade will not wander even in laminated hardwood. I saved enough in labor to buy 5 saws in one job alone.
Summary: Ready to go within minutes out of the box after adjusting for trackplay and trimming off excess edge guide. Track held in most of my application without clamps. I can see use of clamps where the surface is less than flat.
Pros: Depth gauge in inches and easy to set; Plunge mechanism very smmoth
Summary: Really useful tool, especially as a job-site replacement for a contractor table saw. Having cut panels on a contractor style table saw, I can promise that he track saw is much faster and easier to use, makes much cleaner cuts and only requires one person to do the cut.
Pros: Cuts perfectly straight panels
Cons: Kit should include the DeWalt track clamps. It's pretty useless without them and no other clamps will work.
