A negative aspect of it being portable is that it is recommended to bolt it down wherever you use it as it is lightweight and will move about. A big flaw reported is the fact that considering that it’s meant to be portable, there is no cord storage area on the product which can make it awkward and cumbersome to carry the cord along with the saw.

It is perfect for cutting different materials, as you don’t have to know which blade to use, it’s all down to the one superior blade. It’s lightweight, but that does mean it’s plastic and needs bolting down for use. If you’re looking for something simple and versatile this is the saw for you.
