The 75mm cutting depth is the best in its class, with an increased bevel capacity of 50°. There is a non-slip elastomer fitted to front and rear grips, and levers for increased comfort and control. Positive stops at 22.5, 45 and 50°. The twin LED lights improve the visibility of the line of cut for precision every time and blower function keeps sawdust at bay. Easy to read depth scales.
