Pros

"Dog" component keeps unit firmly attached to track during bevel cuts - major selling point that adds significant versatility

Handling is smooth and powerful - feels considerably more comfortable than competitors from Dewalt and Festool

1 agrees

Gradual power-on eliminates saw/track jumping - promotes safety, significantly reducing startup dangers

1 agrees

Integrates smoothly within existing track guides and vacuum components - significantly reduces initial setup for making precision cuts

1 agrees

Suitable for downward cuts - further contributes to the safe, functional nature of the unit

1 agrees

Excellent overall value at the price point - consistent, reliable performance is virtually unmatched at the sub-$500 margin
