      Excellent Product
      Per previous warning about the blade not clamping into saw I took the care to make sure it inserted correctly. The clamping is different as it twist around but was not difficult to get blade in. It was used to trim some branches before the cold settled in for the Season and worked very nicely. Very well made and seems to have the quality Sears is so well known for.

      Hazard!
      I had the same problems with blades falling out. I just bought this today, and it took less than 2 minutes to have problems with it. I thought other people writing the bad reviews were just putting the blades in wrong - no, this product really has problems. Not only does the blade fall out, but one time it flew up and almost hit me. This is not just a piece of junk, this is a hazard and should not be sold!

      Poor quality, an unsafe product

      With the exception of a gutless 5.5HP lawnmower (handled like it had 1.5 HP) , I have never had any major issues with craftsman power tools. Light use - 2X4's, 2 X 6's, even a 1.5 inch square piece of wood causes enough friction the blade comes out. I would say that maybe the friction is too much, but some of these I pulled out with my bare hands. To show the folks at the store, I left the blade in the most recent piec of wood, cutting through it with an old hand saw more quickly than I did with the power saw... because any applicaiton of pressure causes the blade to come out. With the power and 2700 RPM cycle this poses a serious hazard if you are doing tree limbs, on a roofe, or ....well... almost any working situation. The blad sort of "clips" in, not screwed in with an allen bolt like higher priced (and higher quality) products. This is what I get by trying to save a little money.

      Good for the price and my use

      I bought it for use to trim tree limbs in the yard. it works well for that purpose. This is not meant to be a commercial all day use, for bigger limbs and trunks, I would have to let it cool down in case it over heats. But it is able to cut limbs down in 5 to 10 minutes that if done manually would have taken over 1/2 and hour and lots of work.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Not bad for small projects

      This is an alright saw. I'd recommend over battery equivalents, but wouldn't for any heavy duty work. Good to have around if you get it on sale. Nice ergonomics.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
