Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oscrivera505 Gets the job done and saves you time
This is worth the price if your doing a big project, it's easy to use and really saves you time. The blade can use a good sharpening before using it to get a clean cut.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JH Good Laminate Flooring Cutter
This product makes end cuts for laminate installation easy to do with no dust. Is the cut as good as a saw....No. But it is fast and quiet. You will need some strength to make the cuts so if you haven't visited a gym in a while this is not the tool for you. The cutting blade is not sharp. The manufacturer probably did this to prevent liability claims. Picture a big paper cutter on steroids. Overall construction was good. I would not use this tool to rip a board. It can do it. But the results were not as good as I had wanted it to be. I installed 400 square feet of laminate using this tool and it worked quite well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn Waste of money
Bought online. Process with Home Depot was as expected, but the product was terrible. The blade was a dull 1/4 piece of metal that butchered the laminate. The instructions did not say anything about needing to sharpen the blade so either they all come with a dull blade or I got the one cutter that was not sharpened. Returned to store with no problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HandyGirl Took some getting used, but then awesome!
Had my doubts at first as this is not a sharpened blade - just a 1/4" wide metal piece, but after cutting the first couple of planks I was sold. I wouldn't recommend using this for cuts smaller than 3 inches wide as the force of the blade tends to push the plank up over the guide causing minor damage to the locking grooves. Get out the jigsaw for those. This even cut through a plank with the underlayment already attached.
Having this on the floor worked well to get the right level of force to get through the plank. Tried putting it on a table and didn't have enough strength. Have a broom and dustpan handy to clean up the pieces.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bill great deal for cutting allure flooring
Used this product on 1600 sq. ft of allure flooring that was put into a pre-school. Did all the installation and cutting myself. This cutter save me so much time and effort. Cuts it easily and sure saves time over scoring with utility knife. It can also be used to cut flooring length ways besides the cross-cut. Saved our school consideralbe time and money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Don't buy if you are using Bamboo.
Purchased this to help with installation of the 1500 sf of Bamboo laminate flooring I was installing. Based on the reviews it seemed like the solution to keep me from running to the garage for every end cut. The first cut I made with it mangled the board. I know it will leave a rough cut on the end which would be covered by trim, but it actually seperated the end of the board. Do not buy if installing Bamboo.

Don't try to lay a laminate floor without this. Made the job so much faster and easier. Glad I found it on Home Depot.
