The updated type now offers better capacity and control than the original. The addition of a tabletop handle for portability, a hold-down guard plus splitter that cuts wide material, plus a larger rip fence for control takes it to a new level. The hold-down guard and splitter allow one to work with wider materials and a larger rip fence, unlike other portable table saws, which then provide better control and accurate cuts. 

The saw comes with a no-load speed of 3000/min, plus a stroke length of ¾”, with 5.5 amps of power that gives it the capacity for light to moderate cutting of wood which is up to 1-1/2, ceramic tiles 3/8”, PVC pipes 1-1/4”, aluminium 3/8”, lastly steel 1/8.

The blades switch out almost instantly, roughly in under 3 seconds, that is after you get the hang of the tool-less blade change system. The saw is also protected by a Rockwell 3-year limited warranty, so you know they stand behind their tools a definite plus.
