Great saw – get either the BSS610 or the BSS611 I’m a big Makita fan, so this may be just a bit biased: I like this saw a lot. This saw is very similar to Makita’s BSS610. The differences between the two are hard to find — and Makita doesn’t always tell you what the differences are. The 610 has three additional features that the 611 does not: a blade brake, a light and a better 45-50 degree adjustment. The 610 comes with a 24 tooth blade and the 611 with a 16 tooth blade; both blades are otherwise of similar quality. The price difference between the two on Amazon.com is about $55 (the 610 being more expensive) Both saws appear to have the same power, run time and handling — either one is a great addition. (I opted for the BSS610 because of the blade brake.)

Great Little Saw This is a great deal for the money if you already have the batteries and charger. This saw does not have the light which I miss and didn’t come with a rip fence or a case; it’s a light duty saw. If it’s your only saw, you’ll be sorry; it just doesn’t have the torque of a corded saw and will choke in a slight bind while cutting plywood sheets or pressure treated 4x stock where the blade’s burried; situations where even a homeowner corded saw will power through. If the blade is touching your work, the saw can’t start. It just grunts coming up short of enough torque to start the cut. Anything but a perfect cutting angle in a perfectly straight cut will bind and stop the saw.The trigger safety interlock is aggravating! I buy pro model corded saws to eliminate that dumb switch, but you need it in a battery saw if you store it with the battery installed; like everyone does. I have incredibly large hands and still find that trigger interlock a stretch to reach; ergonomically,…

Cowboy Up Contracting Got this in the mail two days ago. I intended on using until I got my DeWalt runnig again (Ipe and remodeling, is hard on chordless saws). Well I put it through the paces today w/ the Makita blade that came on it none the less. And it is now the main tool and the DeWalt is the back up. I can’t wait till I get the Freud Diablo blade on it to see what it can really do! Easy to use rip fence, good eurognomics, smooth running and powerful. A great chordless saw. Won’t replace the corded Bosch but it rocks!
