Summary: The Milwaukee suited my mid sized hands best. Factoring hand feel and comfort depressing the safety lever and pulling the trigger with and without gloves on it was the winner over Makita, Dewalt and Rigid.
Summary: This is a wonderful saw, runs smooth, battery last fairly well for a cordless, not overly heavy, and I love that the blade is on the left side so when I'm holding it in my right hand I don't have to look over the saw to see the blade which I find a lot safer, only thing I don't like is it don't come with an attachable rip guide for ripping wood. I would recommend this and any other Milwaukee tools to anybody looking for good quality tools.
