I heard this item is being discontinued, is that correct? If so what are the plans for the new saw blade size? Thanks.

Asked by: Jimp1023
Can barely cut through a 2X4 so they need to discontinue it. It spools up slowly unlike any circular saw I've ever used. Total piece of garbage. They keep deleting my review so the review score is biased. Do not buy!

Why do you recommend a 4h battery but sell your kits with only a 2h battery. This is frustrating. Marketing strategy?

More money more money more money
Asked by: Bo
The obvious answer is to get you to buy the 4amp hour battery
