Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Last of the great small electric saws left This a great "small in size" and one of the few 5-1/2" corded saws left available. Has lots of power (8 amps) and easily cuts 2x's and plywood with a good blade. I grab this saw most when a quick cut is needed around the house using a Oshlun SBW-055018 blade, My Milwaukee is setup as a rip saw and my Skill Mag 77 is setup using a fast cutting wet wood type blade. My 5005BA weighs in at 7.2 lbs. The saw comes with a really cheap blade that is not much use. The sole plate his too thin for a saw in the price range, bends easy so don't drop it! The handle opening is only 3-3/4" wide X 1-3/4" high, large hands will have a time trying to use this saw comfortably. The front grip knob is useless because it's so small but I can easily use the saw one handed so not such a big deal breaker. Other than these complaints, it's a great little saw, well built (except the sole) and not to heavy. Arbor is 5/8" so saw blades must be ordered online (Amazon stocks some good ones) at least that's what I've discovered. I'm not a contractor so my tools don't get the abuse a pro can throw at them so take my thoughts on this saw with that in mind. December 12, 2013
