Bought 2nd July 2011
I simply can not flaw this machine. I have been able to do everything I want and it has performed a superbly. Now yes, it could be a bigger blade, bigger angles and longer travel, but the price difference was over the moon. WORX brand are classed as a serious DIY and boarderline trade and many trademan are now starting use many of the WORX brand tools. I have used this machine on 90 per-cent of my projects.
I have a few of the Worx brand tools in my basement now including the; Mitre saw, Jig Saw, Belt Sander, and angle grinder, and I am starting to like the brand. Now I have also been pleasently suprised, that it cuts square, and the mitres are actuallys 45 degree, as is the the bevel. The factory markings are on the dot which is good to see considering the price.
The guard mechinisum is good, and does not interfere with any cutting (so far). The laser guide is adjustable but I have not needed to alter it from factory setting. Another thing I like is the brushes are easily changed if required. Comes with a standard 2 year warranty and if you register it online, the warranty is upgraded to 4 years.
The 1800 watt motor gives heaps of grunt and is actually bigger than the others in its class including the DeWalt with only 1600 watts. I have cut a few big beams with this saw (and having to cut 1/2 way and rolling it over to cut the rest) and it handled that no problem at all and basically looked at me and said ”is that all you got… pffft…”.
It has all the normal bits and going ons you expect from a mitre saw. Overali this for the price is an awesome saw. The only reason I would consider an upgrade from this is for the bigger cut depth… Now on saying that I have had my eye on one of the Bosch saws at my local…
Photo’s are just after I got it and just after we moved in to our house… place is a mess… sheese
