The saw carriage slides on two precision-ground steel rails that are fitted with ball bearing guides. The result is a vibration-free smooth-rolling saw that produces precise, consistent cuts, even at the outer limits of the slide mechanism. By the way, this 49-pound tool can crosscut a 2-by-12 and bevel-cut boards up to 3-5/8 inch thick. The LS1013 has a 3,700-rpm direct-drive motor that transfers cutting power to the blade much more efficiently than typical belt-driven saws.
The saw comes with a dust-collection bag, hold-down vise, two extension wings, 70-tooth carbide-tipped saw blade and blade wrench. This versatile saw can handle a wide range of carpentry jobs from house framing and deck building to cabinetmaking and interior trim work.
I really enjoy this saw! I have mounted it on its own box that includes rollers in the back so I can pick up the front end and move it around like a wheel barrel so I am not limited to where I can use it. If it’s a nice day out I will pull it out onto the driveway apron and enjoy the sunshine! (Sorry for all the junk in the picture!)
