Excerpt: Occasionally need to cut up to 10GA mild steel electrical equipment panels/switchgear in shop or field. This saw is a 1000% improvement over the reciprocating or grinding type tools we have used in the past. Borrowed it one day and then ordered one for next day delivery 2 hours after we started using it. Such a dramatic improvement that listing cons would be petty.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Powerful
Excerpt: I USE THIS SAW IN MY FABRICATION SHOP. IT IS A REAL TIMESAVER OVER USING A TORCH. MAKES A CLEAN COOL CUT, NO WARPING ON THINNER METALS. ONLY COMPLAIN IS THE SHOE MOUNT NEEDS ATTNTION. I WELDED MINE BACK ON. IT IS STAINLESS SO ITS NOT A FIX FOR EVERYONE.
Summary: Great tool, bought it for 2 specific projects, building stairs with 10" c-channel stringers and for some compound beveled cuts on steel tube (more on that below). It cut the C-channel like i was cutting 2x12 with a good sharp worm drive circ saw with mininimal cleanup as others have noted. Note that, unlike a conventional circ saw, it is very had to see your blade hitting your mark.
Summary: Fantastic, this is a must have for anyone doing various metal work. Unbelievable, ripping sheet metal fast as a skill saw can rip a sheet of plywood. The more that I use this saw, the better I like it. When working with metal you likely need one these saws real bad and may not know it yet.
Excerpt: Thje product works well. However, I was very disappointed to receive a product beaten up in shipping by poor packing. Returned unit for another one. Disappointed that the blade was used, not new, obvious signs of use. Probably will not buy reconditioned in the future. Not worth the hassle and not expecting used consumables.
