"Zipping Right Through..."
"The reviewer watched the XSH01X repeatedly "whack chunks" off 2x4's before "zipping right through" 3/4" plywood -- all on a single charge. Features he especially liked included the full 7-1/4" capacity (versus the 5-1/2" and 6-1/2" of other cordless saws), as well as the performance, run time, and fast 30-minute charge time.
