      Heavy

      The saw is a pig. Solid design but most likely will never buy another one. The digital readout is wrong. (It did work good at one point) The bevel adjustment takes some getting use to.

        Heavy, but so what.

        I bought this last year for $300 on clearance. For that price, I love it. It replaced my Bosch, so to me the weight is not an issue. I like the digital readout. Makes it simple to set up again and again. Probably not my first choice if I had to spend $600. As a framer, I appreciate the ruggedness of the saw.

        • Pros:
        • rugged
        • accurate
        • Cons:
        • heavy
        • YES
