To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I read many reviews before making this purchase and was warned the saw may not contain oil. It wasn't and so I purchased worm drive lubricant (Skil) and filled it before using. I've cut about 400' of quartersawn white oak and it works great. It's powerful, well balanced, and has a good brake. Just be sure to check the oil/lube before using it.
