Expected far better from the dewalt stable
I've been a long time DEWALT user and very disappointed with this saw and from a safety angle. Near lost my hand on the stupid, dangerous start switch fitted on these saws, most of these type of power tools have a lift up emergency stop paddle on the front then the start/stop buttons underneath and when I lifted the paddle, the saw started near losing my right hand very close to the blade and this same event could happen with small curious kids about, now I'm a retired electrician and been around hand tools far too long for this crap,anyway tha...t same week I went to CARBETEC and bought a NVR [NO VOLTAGE RELAY] start switch [about $27] and replaced the original one on this saw at least making it a lot safer to my mind, now the crunch is that voids my warranty on a brand new saw, but what good is warranty if you lose a hand because of an unsafe tool, anyway, I'm a lot happier using the tool now, but the really stupid part is DEWALT fits these NVR switches on their dearer machines but seriously for $30 would you choose to run the risk and lose your hand or best part of it, no second chances with the power of these saws, this tool I'm fine with now but check the switch out BEFORE you buy one, it could be your fingers or hand involved
