Customer reviewsTry Before You Buy And Buy Extra Blades
Works decent but nowhere near expectations. This is supposed to be the best of the best. Buy extra blades Did a 15 x 15 room and had to finish with my vibratory trimmer because the Crain blade was toast. Design has a couple irritating issues The blade guard is awkward for any cutting position besides the default. The fence really should be covered with some non-marking material UHMW would be great . The base is not held parallel to the blade, you need to be careful when adjusting blade height. The dust collection is OK for wood but totally useless when cutting masonry. I really appreciate that it is made in the USA. Wish I would have tried the 825 before buying. Thinking the 835 redesign was more cost reduction than improvement.
