Pros:Great sight line and all-around ease of use.
Cons:None that I have experienced.
The Bottom Line: I recommend, that If your going to buy a saw , seriously consider this one!
If you are in the market for a new saw, this one is the only one you should consider. The sight line on these saws are beautiful , and plenty of power to boot.Although alot heavier than a typical circular saw, you get used to it.

I have tried out many saws in my carrier as a Carpenter / Everything else I do, The Skil SHD77M 7 1/4" Mag Worm Drive Saw wins my vote for best saw around. My entire company uses them , and we all love them. The Mag base is very smooth and glides across wood with ease , and more importantly without scratching the wood. The handle is positioned to the back of the saw , which makes ripping plywood a "piece of cake". Cross cutting is just as easy, For it seems that no matter how you hold the saw it is very easy to see your marks.
The saw that I have, came with a very generously sized cord. It is very simple to adjust, whether it be depth or angle of cut. Very powerful and hard to jam up. Personally, I have not gotten the" kick back" from this saw that you get from many others.This is good because "kick backs " lead to injury.
