this is my fourth circular saw, previous being "black n decker" model unknown, "craftsman" model unknown, "porter cable" 18 volt cordless, but now needed a serious full time circular saw. after serious reviews,and touch n feel, came down to "makita"5007mga, and "dewalt"575sb",need brake for fast cut's. I have big hand's, and my 10/20 vision is now 20/35. need accurate marking's. so "dewalt"575sb,handles my hand's,sight accuracy,and hand's with light gloves. best saw period.very happy !!!
