    I think you are going to find that the 750 is too small. When we were looking at saws, we had a 750 and a K950A. The 950A was ten times better hands down, but not as big and bulky as the 1200. And when you put a warthog blade on the 950, it will damn near eat through anything you throw at it.

    And for once, JT is right. The Stihl TS series cut off saws SUCK for the fire service. Too damn big and bulky. May be good saws for concrete contractors, but carry one up a 35' ground ladder at 3am......NO THANKS! They do make particularly good boat anchors.

    Yeah i agree on the Stihl's we had one and used it quite often i hated it then we bought a used K-12 and it wasnt bad then the motor s*it the bed in it so we shopped around for awhile and my truck guys seem to like this saw alot so we decided on buying were gonna try it this weekend if we dont like it the dealer ensured us we could return it for different model or just get our money back...however i myself liked the k950 it seemed to have more balls which they call me the "tool man" because i like "more power"

    Do yourself a favor now, before you try to cut a thick industrial roof with that 750- return it to the dealer and pay a couple of extra bucks and get that 950!!!!!

    In order for a circ saw (and chainsaws for that matter) to work efficiently and properly, they have to run at or close to top speed. The 750 will slow down way too much when you take a bite out of some roofs.

    The local husqvarna dealer switched them straight up at no cost to the department (which the saw was donated to begin with anyways hehe)
