There are a bunch of slick features on this new Metabo sliding saw, now where do I start? For starters it’s a sliding miter saw that uses traditional rails but because of the way it’s set up, you can place this saw right up to a wall behind the saw without having to worry about the rails extending and bumping into the wall. How do they do this? They fix the rails onto the base of the saw instead of the rails being fixed on the motor unit. The rails are permanently fixed to the saw base and stick out a bit to the front but don’t get in the way of normal operation. And the motor unit slides onto the rails for the forward and back movement.

The next feature is a wild new feature where the saw’s fences pivot forward or back at the same time while maintaining perfect symmetry and keeping the blade smack in the center of angle. It’s hard to describe so it’s best to check out the included video. This feature will allow easy miter angles, especially when used with the included angle gauge.

This saw also features a slick electronically controlled variable speed dial. This allows all sorts of opportunities to tweak the RPM’s to better fit each task and type of material you are cutting.

It also has impressive dust management, in one of the videos, the rep shows the saw making a cut without a vac hose plugged in and a ton of dust is shot out the dust chute. Almost looks like the dust was somehow being forced through the vac port.

And to help guide cuts is an integrated laser line with not one but two integrated lasers that cast a double line to ensure cuts are lined up properly.




The new KGSV 72 Xact SYM mitre saw is a mobile all-rounder for floorers: It is the world’s only saw to combine the classic functions of a mitre saw with a symmetrically adjustable stop system. Thanks to this patent-pending combination, users can accurately cut panels and also skirtings. The user can saw accurate mitres quickly by transferring angles directly from the bevel without any calculating and measuring thanks to the symmetrically adjustable stop system. The saw is constructed with integrated traction bars that do not extend rearwards making it extremely compact and easy to transport. With its finetoothed saw blade and traction function guided by bearings on both sides, it delivers precise cutting results in floor panels up to 305 mm, skirtings and aluminium profiles.

    But it’s not available in the USA. Even if you pay to import, it’s 240v/50hz. Useless without a 30lb power converter. Both impressive and depressing.
