Rated 5 out of 5 by Jason09 The only saw I care to use
I have ran all makes and sizes of saws over alot of years and if given a chance to chouse a saw this is the saw I took with me it cuts 50% faster than smaller saws and I like the handal
All the way at the back you can get a lot of leverage with it there it also runs just as good upside down too also the drive belt is the best out there they run a long time with no matiance and never had it slip when using water they start good and idle vary well too if money was not a object this is the only saw I would have on my truck if you are out to make money this saw will save you time and money go and get yourself one and you won't regret it

Rated 5 out of 5 by KrisK The Stihl TS700 is the best choice for all your cut-off saw needs, no matter how demanding.
I typically use a cut-off saw to install vehicle loop detectors in asphalt and concrete driveways and roadways. In the past I have rented a Makita saw from a local rental agency. Much to my despair, this saw didn't have enough power to allow me to keep it in the material being cut very long at all. I would have to plunge the saw after holding down the trigger all the way and would only be able to cut a few inches at a time. This was very time consuming and very physically exhausting, especially on my back. A good friend of mine owns an older TS700 with a quick cart, and suggested I borrow his saw to see how I liked it. After completion of a job in literally 25% of the time it took with the rented saw with no pain, I was sold. The TS700 did not bog at all in the hot asphalt. Not only did I purchase a TS700 saw with a quick cart, but I also purchased a BG86 blower to keep the dust down while using the TS700. So now I have a Stihl chainsaw, weed trimmer, cut-off saw, and blower. Stihl products are definitely the way to go for professional grade tools with the the best performance and dependability in the industry. I'm sold!
