This is a very versatile compact saw that can take a range of cutting wheels so it is able to cut a host of different materials such as wood, metal, plastic, masonry (including stone), wall and floor tiles. The maximum depth of cut is 20mm, line of sight is clear, depth is controllable and there are several cutting guides so that a very straight line can be achieved. The side of the guard can be removed for flush cutting which is great for fitting laminate flooring. A 710W motor allows powerful cutting even in difficult materials. The trigger can be locked if required.
Supplied with multi-purpose cutting wheel, 3 metal cutting wheels, straight edge guide, a 2X4 cutting guide, vacuum attachment and storage case.

BrilliantDon't listen to this other review, I've got one of these and it's ace. I do a lot of refurb work and so I'm often cutting small pieces and making alterations..I bought it initially as I had to cut a teak wardrobe down in depth and that's one thing that's great about it is because the blade basically sands through things with carbide you get no chips it cut the veneer with no disruption and as far as I can see the wood blade goes on and on.. It gets clogged with resin and burns over time but it still cuts..router cutter cleaner may fix this. I've cut lots of sheet and it flys through.. It can bind a bit but it doesn't stop and what's brilliant is you get no stuttering as there's no teeth.. So you can hold work with little support. You have to be aware it will cut in any direction though so if you work back into a cut it will open it up so do it in one. It plunges beautifully, leave the depth gauge open and the foot in contact to keep it square and drop it in. I've also cut a galvanised bath in half with the metal blades and some aluminium and it works well, those blades do wear fast though but they are thin..and not that pricey..what do you want??. The dust extraction is excellent but you have to position it so it doesn't slip off..it could be better secured..but for a tool this size..I think it's good it even has this! The fence looks a bit monkey but it is accurate. The stone blade I've also used, I trimmed some dry wall that would have taken ages with a multi cutter..a bit dusty but excellent. I think this tool is as ggame changing as a multi cutter..everyone will copy in time. The 2x4 guide is useless..it won't fit a 2x anything! What I think is the biggest shame is it doesn't cut 25mm deep..then you could do 2x4 in two cuts..as it stands you need to cut the middle out with something else..still..you can't win em all.. if you do fiddly jobs GET ONE.
