I have used a Bosch. It was the barrell model ( I think that is what they called it). It has no handle and you hold the motor by the barrel andI must admit I didn’t care for it. Probably just me but that is the one I had to please. fortunately I didn’t won it. I went in on Black Fri a couple of years back and ACE had this Dewalt on for $60. It has the roller buides for the blade, quick release for the blade (no tools req to replace the blade) it has a handle on the top like I wanted, I had adjustable feed rates and a carrying bag. I like it then and still like it today. Good luck in you shopping. BTW I had one of those big Craftsman saws and never cared for it either. It still sits there and hasn’t gotten any better. Maybe I can find someone I don’t like that will take it off my hands. LOL I might give that to my brother-in-law…....ha ha ha ha ha
