In my line of work precision cuts matter. This is an incredibly well designing saw and ahead of its time when is compareing to other miter saws. From someone who has a small shop, I really like the rail forward design, not only does it increase precision by preventing head play it creates a compact footprint and allows me to easily transport as wall as place the saw against a wall. The micro-adjustable bevel angle with up-front rotary knob, is awesome and another really nice feature. Lastly, this saw, like many Festool tools, was designing to excel in dust extraction.
