Can't say enough good about this saw! Very light, but plenty of power. We do alot of remodeling, so it's nice to have this ready to go when we need to just rip a few studs or sheet goods. I wouldn't rely on it to cut all day long by any means, but if your a remodeler, it works very well. That said it will not replace our corded DeWalt, it's just a nice compliment to it.
