Pros: when this saw works there is none better, comfortable handle even with gloves
Cons: if you buy this saw get two because you will need a backup!!!
made the switch from craftsman pro series saw to lenox 5yrs ago. this is my 3rd saw & its became unusable. on every saw the front section of the saw becomes loose on the saw spine which makes the blade come off during use. being a professional plumber i use my hacksaw many times every day & i am not happy with this. in the past when exchanging the broken saws at my local supply house there were always 2 or 3 other lenox saws there with the same problem. my latest effort to exchange a broken saw was not good as i was told lenox no longer warrants this saw over the counter. looks like its back to craftsman!
