Review #1

Probably the best feature I’ve found is the light grip required on the
operating handle. I can’t see getting carpal tunnel syndrome from
overuse of the handle, for it is truly comfortable to use, unlike some
of the ones I tried that required both a hard grip on a safety device
as well as a tough pull-down on the handle.

Review #2

The only thing I wish it had was a laser. That’s why only 4 stars. I
purchased the Irwin laser attachment to use with this lightweight
miter saw. I also believe the sawdust bag is usless and I attach it to
the vac when I use the saw.

Review #3

This is a great saw for the homeowner. The professional might quibble with its lack of sliding capability, but for the price this compound miter saw is hard to beat.

Review #4

Yeah I know it only compounds in one direction and it’s only 10″. Tell yah what though, for under $200 it’s a real bargain (no lasers at this price). The saw arrived in perfect condition, spot on accurate out of the box and it now carries a sign stating “finish work only”.

Review #5

Power is good (takes a few seconds to come totally up to speed) and included blade is better than expected – I got additional blade at initial purchase becuase I assumed like most saws the included blade would be crap but standard blade is good general purpose. Dust collection sucks, though some reviewers have not been as “candid.”
