This is a unique saw with a very special 'Axial-Glide'™ system that gives the smoothest, precise cutting action of any of the mitre saws on the market today. Guided by means of a glide arm, mounted on sealed bearings and made from robust die-cast aluminium, it is maintenance-free and guaranteed to be smooth and accurate running for a lifetime of cutting. It has large capacities and a wide angle range plus dual laser-line for precise line-up before cutting and groove function. The machine saves space as it can be positioned against a wall. All controls are at the front and the scales and positive lock handles make setting the machine easy. Fitted with integrated material supports right and left of the main table, it has a back fence with a total length of 1,016mm to give maximum work support. The glide system is lockable for transport.

Recommended. Has some limitations for pro use, but beats all the competition hands downI bought this saw mainly to cut 4” oak rafters and such like for timber framing, as well as general carpentry. It is a good saw. I bought the package deal with the Bosch saw trolley. There is very little choice of manufacturer when you need this capacity: mainly Makita and DeWalt. Bosch is a bit more expensive but not enough to matter for a long term purchase.

So smooth!After owning a comparable makita and using larger dewalt chop saws, this one is in a completely different league!

GCM axial glideJust got the saw, perfect straight out of the box first impressions it's a fantastic saw so smooth and plenty of power even in hard oak, don't think much of the dust extraction though they claim 80 percent recovery but I thinks that's very optimistic hard pushed to recover 50 per cent I would think, any way thanks Axminster, spot on service as always .

Laser light broke real fastSuper saw but laser light lasted all of about three weeks. - For a NZD $1450 saw this is a little hard to stomach . .
