Great little trim saw

This saw is great for light trim work, It's compact size and light weight make it very handy for light cutting. It does fall short for framing and sheathing type work.It is a very comfortable saw to use. The LED light is handy for working in areas with less than optimum lighting.

If your thinking of cutting much 2 X stock I think you would be happier with a 36 volt saw. If your doing cabinet installations or trim work you'll like this saw.

A minor gripe of mine is this saw being blade left with a left facing dust port end up filling my pocket with sawdust. I would buy another one of these saws if I could get it in a blade right configuration, like all good sidewinders should be.

Pros
Compact, light,
Cons
fills pockets with saw dust
