Rated 3 out of 5 by from very useful if used carefully used professionally can be very handy tool. powerful motor, can be great for cutting flooring using the crosscut guide. kickback can be ferocious!!!! be careful and make sure you have a firm grip. excellent crosscutting guide, not so sure about the ripping guide, blades don't last long, i would say more for occasional use, heats up really quickly

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shoddy engineering Scheppach I bought this for a project, the first thing I felt as soon as I opened the case was a stupidly thick diameter body, I have large hands yet failed to grip this properly. The rear pivot is ridiculous, you have to tilt the body forward which helps tild the saw so it can easily kick back. compared to new saws on the market costing 1.3 the price, Scheppach have really messed this up. I now have a Cheap make saw with front pivot that just works.......No more big brands for me

how close to the wall will this cut please? I want to use it to cut the bottom off skirting in situ.

Asked by: Johnstjohn
Hi The pl 285 cannot be used on its side as it is not stable and the blade is not to one side of the base plate , the scheppach pl 45 / pl 55pluge saws can be used for this purpose giving a cutting distance of 16mm from the floor to the top of the cut .
