"This saw is aright for the money it cut’s ok but it’s a little slow but I used the blade that came with it. As far as cutting OSB or Plywood it doses the job but the laser guide is off so don’t trust it also the fact that it won’t cut thru a 2x4 at a 45 is a bit of a draw back. It seems to be a well built saw tough enough and make sure you use a heavy enough cord as it dose draw the power. For rough cut’s it’s a good saw again I used the blade that it came with"
"This saw is light, powerful, and easy to use. The built in laser guide helps me cut straight which I could never do with my old saw. It comes with a rough cut blade so if you want finer cuts, you'll have to change out the blade. The tool provided does not include a hex wrench for changing the blade so many rank amateurs won't know how to change the blade. Otherwise, a great saw."
"Let me say first that you cant beat the price for this saw with a laser guide. Cuts true right out of the box no playing around...Laser very ture to the cut. Built my work bench with this saw. Just one problume the tool for removing the saw blade does not work well bent the prongs on the tool trying to remove trying to change the blade that was the only down fall other then that a great saw"
"I purchased this product based on need, price, amps, and service. Product works great - the price was right compared to all the other competitive products, and Northern services their own equipment so if something were to happen, I have a place to bring it for repairs. Really happy with my decision and would recommend it to everyone who has a need."
"Saw was shipped promptly. Saw is not to heavy and has performed flawlessly. Has plenty of power to cut 2 x 6's easily. The laser is extremely helpful in making accurate cuts. I would recommend this saw to anyone needing a good saw for weekend projects."
"This saw is very nice for the price. Comes with a manual with warranty information on the last page of the manual. The warranty basically says that if you don't abuse your saw, If you use it correctly and if it quits, take it back to the store and let them deal with it. I love the laser. The saw is powerful and it's much quieter than all of my other saws. Why buy a name when you can buy a great saw with a five year warranty?"
"I have used this saw to repair my back and side decks. It is relatively light and very powerfull. I especially like the LED aiming light. It makes for accurate and straight cuts. It cuts through 2x6s like a hot knife through butter. It has the appearance of quality and I expect that it will last a long time."
"This saw came fairly quickly and appears to work fine. My frustration has been that there was no user manual included with either of the 2 saws I purchased. It supposedly comes with a 5 year warranty as well, but there was no warranty information included in the box either. I've had to call the company and ask for the documentation to be sent separately. Really annoying."

This rating addresses NT&E, not the tool
November 6, 2011
"I know the frustration of getting a tool without an owner's manual or warranty. It's irritating. But Northern Tool & Equip's failure to include documentation in the box has no bearing on the quality of the tool. I'd like to see reviewers wait until they have contacted NT&E, received the papers, and THEN write their reviews. I know this is only one man's opinion, but I think a rating should apply to the tool, not to NT&E. It's fine to include a note in the review that the tool arrived without papers, but when I look at the overall average rating, I assume reviewers are rating the quality of the tool."
