Burns the wood.

JM, Amazon
20 October 2015
  • Summary: It is my first time using a circular saw. With that said, I am able to successfully cut a 2x4. However, the blade has to be installed backwards in order to cut. It refuses to cut if the big print on the blade faces outside. When it cuts, the wood got burn.

Husband was really impressed

Shannon, Amazon
7 October 2015
  • Summary: My husband has been using his saw for nearly 14 years. He hated the idea of having to replace it but for safety reasons I decided to get him this one. At first this wasn't really what he wanted and it took about two weeks for him use it the first time.

You get what you pay for

  • Summary: I purchased this saw 3 months ago, for light use cutting and was initially happy with the results. Over the next 3 months, the saw saw :) very light and infrequent use. However, yesterday I noticed that the blade actually moved 1/16 of an inch.

Good quality saw and easy to use

Denzel Jackson, Amazon

  • Summary: Pro: Good quality saw and easy to use. Con: 1> The package design is not good! You have to completely tear off the box in order to take the saw out. If you like to repackage the saw back to the box, you have to tape the paper box.

Christopher K. Wolfe, Amazon

  • Summary: Very nice Skil Saw for the price. I have used mine for about 5 months of steady use and it still works very well. I would recommend this product to those needing one for home projects or side jobs.

Reliable and Easy to Use

  • Summary: Great saw that never fails me. I have used this tool on several home diy projects and it has been very reliable and easy to use. I don't use this saw for precision cuts for obvious reasons, but it is easy to operate and with the safety features I feel comfortable using it.

Cheap saw. Skip it.

Jah Redd, Amazon
1 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought this saw based on the price and the positive reviews last year. This year, when I really needed it (of course), the depth-adjustment mechanism broke. And not just broke a little bit, I mean this thing BROKE.

Good Quality Saw

LA, Amazon
13 April 2015
  • Summary: This Skil saw is a great value and is the perfect balance between price and function for the non-professional. I purchased this model saw 25 years ago and it recently died on me. It began making noises and the bearing probably wore out.
