Rated 5 out of 5 by 3reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by good saw Use to rough cut and dimension green wood with lots of moisture content. Quiet operation high torque awesome tool. January 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by All the power I needed I bought this 8 1/4 inch saw because the blade was large enough to notch a 2x6 in half at full depth (2 3/4 cut). I have also heard that they are powerful saws and I knew this project (notching 24 treated 2x6's eleven times each to create a grid ceiling for my cabana) was going to be tough. I planned to use the saw to cut either side of a 1 1/2 inch notch and then pass it through a few times in the center and remove the waste with a chisel. I soon learned that the saw was willing and able to clean up the notches on its own. I then clamped 11 treated 2x6s together to be more efficient and accurate with my cuts. The saw didn't even whimper. I wore out a blade in one 10 hour day and abused the saw through misuse (working the saw side to side and occasionally backwards to clean out a notch is a big time no no) but it handled it beautifully. I will keep this one forever and recommend worm drives by Skil to anyone strong enough to handle them. May 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's worth its weight in gold, with best line of sight, power, and reach. I use side winder saws, and they work fine, but I prefer the worm drive saws. I use the super 77 daily for work, and I own the 8 1/4 for projects where I need to cut rough, 2x, true dimension lumber. In rough sawn, it will cut clean through at a 45 deg where a smaller 7 1/4" will not. The super 77 and the 8 1/2 are the most rugged hand power tools I own and will motor through treated, engineered and wet wood without bogging. The great line of sight to the cut line allows me to make more accurate cuts than any side winder I have owned. The handle in the rear allows me to gain 5-6" more in reach, and this is great when cutting sheet goods. Having the handle in the rear makes the saw more stable and helps it to track better. The extra weight and the rear handle are an advantage. If you turn your stock so you cut down hill, gravity works to effortlessly cut through the material. It is a change from a side winder but to me, it is worth it with the better line of sight, rear handle, increased power, and the gravity assist cutting. October 18, 2012
