The Mitre Saw itself is a cordless saw that matches the performance of most corded saws. Because of its cordless nature this saw is a perfect choice for those that need to transport that saw regularly or get it into positions where eletrical points are hard to come by.
It can be carried one handed, which again makes it very quick and easy to get up and down from a loft or basement. The saw has a sliding bevel so it could handle a wider bit of timber. It can cope with a 305mm width of timber to a depth of around 60mm which is very impressive for a cordless, lightweight mitre saw.
