My wife bought this for me as a gift. I'm a tool junkie and have most any tools, for most any trades that a man could ask for - mechanics, wood, metal, stone; building, repairing, etc. This one looked like it would complement my shop. It looked so good at the time that I bought one for a friend for his birthday. He hasn't used his yet so doesn't have any feedback. I've seen reviews that talk about the blade guard - a pixx-poor design if I ever saw one and nearly impossible to deal with; and the motor overheating and not cooling - another oops if there ever was one; and the 'couple of times used and quit' - their bad; and the counter-rotating blades grinding to a halt without lubricating them - and I understand that too. This saw is not well engineered or implemented. But more and worse than that is a total lack of support for it by Sears. The local store has saws for sale BUT NO BLADES! What are they thinking of? Blades are more than $65 from the catalog - HA! It's junk.

Good for easy, short, light weight jobs. Cutting thin metal, plastic pipes, etc. is good, no kickback. Cutting cedar wood burned mine up fassssst. Used relatively little. Out of warranty. My loss. I would rate it up there with **************'s Chicago Electric tools. Oops.
You would have to just have $150 extra dollars you are willing to give to the Craftman's cause. This tool did NOT last a full year and without a "proof of purchase" I could not even get it repair. Pityfull excuse for a "Power Tool"!!!!
I bought the saw and used it to cut aluminum. On the third use it turned off and would not start again.The metal was thin and easy to cut so there was not a heavy load on the saw.It worked great up until it shut off. The one year warranty was past, so I am sol on the saw. I took it to my local sears, it was a waste of time,all they did was give me an 800 number.

Many reviews derate this saw because of overheating . It is probably because the saw was run beyond the recommended duty cycle. Which is "30 minutes on,10 minutes off under normal load" or let it cool to ambient (normal) air temprature. See page 12 in the manual. I do not recommend using this saw for prolonged or industrial cutting. It is for the occasional home user. I use it to cut up pallets for firewood, easily cutting stray nails that would make a normal saw dull or dangerous. When I feel too much heat, I just do something else such as stacking or moving the cut pieces to the storage area so no time is lost. Another feature is the large 6-1/8" blade that other twin cut saws don't have.
