This morning whilst at Screwfix I happened upon the deWalt DWS773 sliding compound mitre saw which appears to have a lot going for it as an ultra portable site and DIY saw. The spec is generally quite similar to the DWS777 216mm saw with a couple of exceptions (48° left/right mitre as opposed to 50° on the heavier machine, 1300 watt motor instead of 1600/1800 watts) and the cutting capacities are almost identical but the base is somewhat smaller and DW have provided two large, removeable, handles for transport and at 11.5kg this saw really is the most portable trade rated saw I've ever come across. Could be very handy for the mobile handyman as well

Available in 240 volt and 110 volt (24 hour delivery only). SFX are throwing-in a free deWalt DT1953-QZ 216mm x 30mm x 40T TCT blade (the saw comes with a 30t one) until 04/09/16 if you add item 7089P to the order. Generally positive reviews on SFX apart from the one guy who expected a £200 saw to give him trench cuts and actually uses the hold down....... :roll: Read the spec, maybe, buddy?
