Customer reviewsValue cannot be argued - Not for pro use
For the money, cannot argue. The laser set to either side of the kerf is nice. There is no slow start, no anti centrifugal element so it s jerky when starting and stopping. Guards and accessories feel cheap. It s not a Kapex. But is a quarter of the price and compares favorably to the other compound miter saws in the market space. Price makes it a no brainer for a saw that has to be precise enough to get by.
