Summary: I am right handed so this saw is perfect for me. I can see the cut line and the blade without bending over the saw. Lots of power at 15 amps and very good quality. I have used mine for over a year every day. As with any saw that pulls 15 amps you need to be mindful of line loss. Fastest way to kill a good saw is to use an extension cord that is too small and/or too long. I use 10 gauge extension cords with anything that pulls 15 amps.
Excerpt: I have been using both, right and left saws for many years. I live and die by my saw, it's an extension of my arm. My issue is withe the shoe and the depth control. The shoe is to soft and bends rendering the saw unusable if it is dropped. A poly-carb shoe would take a beating. If the guys not familiar with the saw set the depth adjustment too tight, it eventually strips, rendering that useless. Once it is done, it's done.
Excerpt: I'm a carpenter with over 40 years experience and this saw is one the best I've ever used. I think it will be the last circular saw I will ever buy and it will probably outlive me. A great machine.
Pros: Best Value, DURABLE, Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Great Blade, Powerful, Professional Quality, Safe
Excerpt: Great saw, its a little heaver than the dewalt but not much, I would also like to see a rafter hook like the M18 fuel line of the Bosch. The left side blade is great much easier to see and its cheaper and lighter than a worm drive. A+ here, i can see other brands offering this once people see how great it is.
Pros: Better View, Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Powerful
