Customer Questions & Answers

How deep does saw cut

Asked by: Cmjr
It will easily cut 3-1/2" thick lumber. (4" nominal)
Answered by: John
Date published: 2016-09-14


It can but is not made to cut metal. Most metals would wear the aluminum shoe out and the saw would no longer be accurate in its cuts. The power of this saw could kick back severely when put into a bind causing grave injury.

Will this saw cut metal?

Will this saw cut thew about 2/8" metal?
Asked by: Mark
Test, with a metal blade. Not recommended because the guards are not designed for metal and could possible get a metal shaving into the motor.

The first time I used it I put it in my best buy, good tool catagory. I know it will perform for years down the road. Good feel, plenty of power, made well. Its only flaw is the weight, but for the quality that is made into this saw, I'm not gonna complain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have for building Decks If you have to cut anything larger than a 4x4 then you need this saw. Not only is it larger than your normal 7 1/4 circular saw but it is powerful too! It will keep on cutting even with a dull general construction blade. This worm drive system saw is powerful with it's 15 Amps motor. The motor stays cool even when cutting hard wood all day unlike other saws with their straight shaft designs. This model SKILSAW will increase your productivity by making a one cut pass instead of two with a smaller saw on large wood products. SKILSAW has built in several handles to tackle those odd angle or complex cuts where it takes two hands to make the cut. One handle can be reversed for left hand cuts. It has a degree marker for making angle cuts that is spot on with no guessing. It also has a built-in wrench storage slot to make quick blade changes for different materials and cuts. This saw will make the DIYers look like a professional with it's many features. SKILSAW uses Magnesium and Aluminum in its construction to make this saw lighter with more long lasting durability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Saw! Terrible blade choice! The saw is everything you expect from Skilsaw. I personally prefer the worm drive over a makita or milwaukee 10 1/4 saw, however I don't understand why such a thin kerf blade was put on a 10 1/4 saw! The blade deflection (wobble) is incredible. This saw will be amazing once a new diamond arbor 10 1/4 blade is made. Until then this saw won't be used for any precision cutting. Stick with a Makita or Mafell (different league) for making nice cuts on timberframe projects, this saw/blade combo is good for quick 6x6 and 4x4 cuts on decks and fences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monster of a saw recently our company got a contract to build a private waterfront wharf.. We ordered marine grade pressure treated hemlock and pine.. the beams consisted of 12x12`s, 6x12`s and 6x8 purlins. We didnt want to have really rough looking cuts by using a chainsaw so the Sawsquatch was in order. The saw performed amazing cutting through such large timbers, mind you on the larger ones i had to make multiple passes on the 12 x12"s and 8x 8's but its far better than using a regular 7 1/4 saw. the motor didnt bog down one bit cutting through the lumber, in the 3x8 pine deck boards it cut clean through with its 3-11/16" cut capacity . Though weighing in at 17 lbs the saw is very balanced and glides along nicely. a few very nice extra features i liked were the rafter hook which allwed me to hook the saw on to sawhorses keeping it in arms reach instead of setting it down on the ground. The auxillary handle which screws on and off adds additional control when i made long cuts. The 2nd best feature on the saw for me was the bevel table which has 1 degree markings all the way up to its full bevel capacity. making much much easier setting a specific angle compared to most other saws which only have markings on 5 degree increments. The only flaw on the saw that i could find has nothing to do with Skil but with the Frued 40 tooth blade.. the stock blade is a 1/16th thin kerf blade, it does cut clean but with such a thin blade it warped after only moderate usage.. had it been a full kerf blade like frued makes for tablesaws or mitre saws the warping with be a non issue. All in all i highly recommend this saw to the proffesional timber framer, framer or deck builder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skilsaw 10.25-inch Worm-Drive Circular Saw OK. A little background on what I do. I am not just a DIY'er. I am a construction professional by trade and I do this for a living. It supports my family and I and is not just a hobby. Part of my job involves building decks. We use 4x6 and 6x6 beams and occasionally for the biggest ones 8x beams. Some of these are posts and some are custom hand rails. Without this saw, these would have to be cut with a chain saw and then planed and sanded until they take a smooth shape. With this saw I am now able to slice right trough the 4x6 timber and able to do 22.5 degree miter cuts. The saw is heavy but you have to remember, you are holding 3.75 horsepower in your hands. It is like a table saw in your hand, not just a typical "just enough" circular saw. It has a heavy plate with a good support while ripping. Amazingly, it weighs about 2-3 pounds more than the cheap 7 1/4 saws that do not have aluminum or magnesium on them. The miter angle locks in at 45 degrees, but with a push of a button, it can go to 51 degrees. The people that have come to watch me work my magic refer to the saw as "Son of Hercules". It is strong, powerful and does not like being connected to a 16 gauge 100 foot cord. A 12 gauge is better as it allows the saw to run and full potential with no harm to the brushes in the motor. Can you imagine making your own miter box and slicing through crown molding for the perfect angles? A 7 1/4 saw could never do that. Yes I have 12" compound miter saws but do I carry them everywhere I go? Would I carry it for one small job? No. This saw and a Miter box does it all. There are a couple of things I wished Skilsaw had improved, though: First, the forward handle is skinny and not as comfortable as I expected, and the ~3/16" gap between the gearbox and the base when the saw is set to full depth could be eliminated. Some people have complained about the Diablo blade included with this saw. Many users mention blade wobble. I was able to almost completely avoid this problem during long rips by first making a small cut with a 7-1/4" saw. Then I would switch over to this saw, enter the cut, stop just before the end of the cut I made with the 7-1/4" saw, plunge in to full depth, and then proceed to finish the cut. This helped reduce the blade wobble to about 1/32" per side and allowed us to make perfectly straight cuts. All I can say is COOL SAW!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome saw this saw is heavy but like all worm drive's it has a lot of power I love the one pass on a 4 x 4 and two pass on a 6 x 6 it makes my life a lot better and easy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as the Original Big Foot I purchased a Big Foot saw about 14 years ago and the motor burned out. I purchased the new Skil Saw Squatch and it broke within 3 months of normal use. I have been cutting stairs for over 25 years so my guys know what they are doing. Skill didn't cover this under warranty because they said the parts that broke were "wearable items" and do not reflect the manufacture quality. I've already placed an order for another tried and true Big Foot Original.
