Excerpt: My son is a framer/building contractor, he had his saw stolen so I got this saw for him, he liked the new design of the blade guard in that it does not catch like the older style. He has used the Skil worm drive for many years and wanted to replace it with the same model. CPO was prompt filling and shipping the order.
Excerpt: We use these saws for granite fabrication with a diamond blade wet. They last 3-6 months each before the strain of stone cutting and water kills them. I have tried other brands and this is one of the best lasting and value.I have had one doa in the last 6 years and I took it to an authorized shop to get repaired under warranty.
Excerpt: Skil has been THE saw for decades. The left hand blade design ensures accurate cutting, plenty of power (hard to bog it down), but...it's a bit heavy for all day use. Nothing new there, power vs.
