I own one and have for over 2 years. It is contractor version and I re-wired if for 220. It is a great tool. I as most did a lot of research before buying it and do not regret it one bit. It gets used constantly and has never give me a minute of trouble. I did fire it once, when cutting it his the metal fence on my miter gauge but that was my fault for not adjusting it better to accommodate the tilt. I called them and their customer service was excellent. They were very helpful and even recommended I send the blade to forest (it was a WW2) and have them check it before just throwing it out. They checked it out and all it needed was sharpening.

Having grown up in a family of woodworkers (professionals that made their living at this craft I do for a hobby) I know accidents happen even to the most careful. The peace of mind that this also provides is a plus. It does not in any way lessen my resolve to follow all safety procedures but I look at as an added plus. I have used it in bypass mode to cut treated lumber and find that a nice feature on the few occasion is has been needed. Putting it into bypass mode is an involved procedure and resets to normal mode when you turn the saw off.

I cannot say enough good things about the saw and would and do highly recommend it to all.

Enjoy whatever you buy!
