I have this saw, it is great. Although it is still fairly heavy at 14lbs it is still 2lbs lighter then the original skil. It is very powerful,it won't bog down in tough, wet material. The blade lock lever is helpful for changing blades. When you first start it is does not kick, or atleast i don't think it does.
The handle is very good for cutting straight down,
good saw, buy it
(ski should be paying me for this :p)
Seems to work fine, though only a few weeks old. I don't like the feel of it and the bevel adjustment sucks.
I have replaced it with a Makita.
The first saw i ever used was the 77
and every saw ive used since has been substandard
the only complaint i have with the mag77 i own now
is its not made in the USA
this saw will cut as straight as your hand is steady
with a decent blade not much pushing required
Framing, Demo, Concrete forms, Sheathing, Decks, Fencing,Siding
There is no substitute
(in my opinion,of course)
