6.6 poundsThe verdict:
This saw felt silky-smooth ripping 8-foot plywood. Its ham hock of a front handle offers a solid grip, but don't lean too hard on it; our test unit bogged down faster than the rest. Its shoe flops loose when released, so forget single-handed adjustments from a ladder. Get to know it, though, and this crisp-cutting saw will serve you well. Fine print:
Aluminum shoe and blade housing. Plastic blade guard. Charger and one battery.
