I only paid $50 for it. Home Depot ordered too many and were trying to get rid of them. I wasn't planning on buying one at all. I was looking at the Ryobi ones, my dad has a lot of Ryobi tools. But this was cheaper than any other saw there. lol. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't going to stop working after we use it for the first time.Hunter said:Good brand but spendy.
I am more of a Ryobi guy, but I very seldom use my tools so there is no reason to buy the spendy ones.
If you will be using it on a weekly basis then it will be a good purchase, if you plan on using it once a year take it back and buy a Craftsman or Ryobi.
