Based on the SK 14 platform, EDCO's new 18-in. saw is a great option for those just getting into the 18-in. size. It features an 18-in. blade capacity, engine mounted directly to the deck and weighs around 200 lb.
The 20-in. saw is a feature heavy, premium saw based on EDCO's DS 18. The 20-in. saw features a flip-up guard blade. Also, the engine is elevated off the platform to reduce vibration on the blade.
Both saws are designed without a lot of head weight so they stay in the cut and the rear wheels stay on the ground.
