6 times

in the description the writer says the saw will cut "6 times" at 90 degree and "4 times" at 45 degrees... did they mean "6 by" as in 6" by 6" or 6" by 8" or 6"x8"?
Asked by: frankie
If you cut at 90 degrees, it will cut 6 1/4" thick and at 45 degrees it will cut 4" plus. We just finished cutting many 6 x 12 cypress and it didn't even slow down.

15 Amp 16-5/16 in. Circular Saw is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita beam saw The Makita 16 5/16 beam saw was the right tool for this job. We are working on a log home repair and needed clean cuts on end of half logs. We have other tools that could have made the cuts but this circular saw with the included 40 tooth blade make near perfect cuts with very little sanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw is a must for a serious deck builder. I am a contractor that has been building decks for many years. I am a premier deck builder. I have had many saws over the years and for cutting 6x6's and 8x8's it makes life easy. When you need to cut a notch in your post for the girders, it will cut the entire way without much hand work. just make a pass on each side and on bottom, tap with a hammer and done. The saw has power and will cut anything. It is however not for the weakhearted because it is heavy. I would recommend it to anyone who plans to use it for serious work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw, Love the saw. Very quite but dont let that fool you. You aren't going to be one handing this saw. It has been chewing through oak and maple 6x8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful with great balance. Saw cuts 6 x 6 pressure treated posts with ease. Also used it for cutting 5 inch white oak slabs with no problem. Very powerful saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious saw Very easy to handle and use. I thought it would be really heavy but isn't bad at all. Only get this if you are serious about timber framing or handling big beams. It's super quiet comparatively. The rip guide works safely from 1/2" to about 3". Beyond that you'll have to do something else. Has a hole for dust collection too. Cut 6" dry cedar beam 12' long with almost no resistance and a perfect cut surface even with the stock 32T blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big saw for very big jobs Used or cutting composite sea wall 18 inches deep and 5 1/4 inch thick and hundreds of identical pieces after making a jig
