Cuts faster than our electric powered saws. The 4 amp hour battery is long lasting. also the blade stops quickly when you release the trigger a great safety feature
UNUSABLE because it did not include a battery!! Was not clear in the description and photo showed it apparently operating without a battery attached which is essentially false advertising. Battery is very expensive making this at this price no bargain. Item might be fine if you already have a battery?
This is an excellent tool for remodeling. I use it all of the time. It has plenty of power for the tough jobs.
I have used 3 of these saws over the past 5 years. The motor lifespan seems to be getting shorter with each one. The safety trigger on the latest model is not in a good location. A person has to loosen their grip on the saw to hold the safety button. This makes it an UNSAFETY feature. The tool-less blade change feature is made of plastic and fails so that you can't change the blade without pliers and a screwdriver. Fix these problems and I'll buy another one when the current one dies.
