This was purchased to replace my 5 1/2 Skil saw ...

  • Summary: This was purchased to replace my 5 1/2 Skil saw which I've had a very long time and which I've used and used. When the depth is set shallow on this saw the control is diminished a lot. It wants to "walk". I'm not sure if this is a quality issue or a blade issue.

Saw work good but a little too pricey

  • Summary: Saw work good but a little too pricey. I was buying the skill trim saw for$120.00 till they stopped making. Pretty pissed Makita is getting over $300.00 for theirs. Since I need it for work they got me over a barrel!!!!

A wonderful saw.

Jeremiah, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this saw for a 76 year old retired carpenter. He is somewhat of a frail man and has limited physical strenghth. He claims that it is a wonderful saw with the lightweight feature he was looking for. He does finish work with it and installed a nice finish blade in his and it runs very nicely.

Balance and weight distribution problems.

Anett Allbrett, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: To my eye this saw looked like it could deliver. For me, it was awkward and I had to fight it to get a descent cut. The angle and shape of the handle and the trigger in proportion to the overall weight aren't positioned ergonomically enough to allow me to become " one with the tool " .

Throw away your 7 1/4" Skillsaw or useless Worm Drives

Charles Seiler, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I own a left drive standard (non worm drive) skillsaw, and it sucks. I have never liked how the blade is setup so you have to cut with you left hand. I also own a Makita 13 amp worm drive saw. This little 5 1/2" saw does everything the larger saws does, but it does it so much easier.
