Over the years I have owned a wide variety of framing saws. Each had their pros and cons. I understand the arguments: heavier saws drop easier and work better for cutting rafter tails; a footplate constructed from steel is more durable than one made from magnesium or composite; more expensive saws aren't worth the money since construction professionals trash their tools due to heavy use.
That being said, the amount of time I'm using the saw on the ground heavily outweighs the times I using it dangling from rafters. The weight difference between a steel footplate versus a magnesium one is worth dropping the extra one to two pounds. Finally, like most, I pride myself on taking good care of my tools. When they break, I fix them. The added maintenance cost is just the price of doing business. Simply put, better tools allow you to do better work.
So when my Makita Hypoid Mg was recently stolen at a break-in at one of my job sites, I jumped at the opportunity...
If you really want to buy this saw because it looks neat then get it. If you are buying a worm drive because you use one to make a living then save yourself the time, money and embarrassment. I read a lot of the reviews and blogs and heard that a lot of people like them and have had no trouble. There is also a fair amount of people saying that their new dewalt worm drive burnt up with very little use. I went ahead and bought one anyhow. The good things about the saw are the better plate compared to your average skil worm drive and There is a detent on 45 and 22.5 that's about it for the good. The first day or so cutting with this new saw was great, it cut like a hot knife threw butter. All the credit should probably go to the new diablo blade. About 4 days into using the saw i could start to hear the gear box more then im used to with a skil saw, it didn't sound nasty it just sounded like machine gears work fairly normal just louder then im used to. the saw uses a thinner lubricant...
Awesome saw. a little heavy, but has the power to cut any wood martial you want to. Makes cutting straight lines easy, Can't go wrong with DEWALT . No other brand works as well, other than they keep making the better!
