Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

For a basic circular saw (not that this has no features) Skill is the way to go. Just taking it out of the box the weight, the feel, I knew I got the right saw. I changed out the blade for more teeth and carbide tip (which is normal for me, for a cleaner cut, from what I've seen in this price range you will always get like an 18 tooth steel blade.). I am sure for my purposes this saw will serve me well for many years.

The saw is great, it replaces a similar saw I bought 5 yrs. ago, that simply wore out. Too bad that my Junction City Walmart Supercenter, haven't had any of these in stock/on the shelf for at least a week. Would have been better if the store would have had one.

I got to use this a few days ago to make a separate aviary in the greenhouse. It made it so much easier since it was portable and can use a cord. Instead of cordless and heavy. Though, my dad said that the skill saw's are one of the best to get. "I didn't know when I got it. But, I have a good knack for finding things that are better quality." The only difficulty I had was the safety button; when you have to lift it, get the angle right, hold down the safety button the whole time, and press the trigger to turn it on. 'Could just be because I am left handed, dun't know.' Otherwise it worked like a charm and cut the wood smoothly. Now my baby chicks can be safe from the fully grown adults! Now to go for a table saw for a mini shed/barn for cattle or goats.....

Things are not made like they use to be.. My previous saw was a "Skil" and it lasted for 15 years at least, so when it finally laid down on me I went right back to Walmart and picked up another one. A month or so later I find myself needing to rip some OSB and to my surprise it could not even come close to doing the job, the motor was running but the blade would not spin. I attempted to cut a scrap 2X4 with it and had the same results. Needless to say I am very disappointed with the saw. My biggest diaspointment is that I was so impressed with my previous Skil saw that I threw away the box and receipt.

Awesome saw for general around home projects. Good power and ruggedness. Same price as the Harbor Freight specials but blows them out of the water. I am 100% satisfied with this product.

I bought this tool and had to return it right away. As I tried to cut a 2 by 6 it did not had the power to go across. I had to end the job using a sawzall. Stay away from this tool if you are cutting anything thicker than a 1 by.

I could not it well. All metal guard is good. May be able to cut light metal with the right blade. Needs a decent carbide tipped blade. That is a extra coat. Just look for a little better saw in a brighter color and with a full metal blade guard like the blade guard on this saw.. If the lower blade guard is plastic on any circle don't use a metal cutting blade. Many makes now have plastic blade lower guards. Stupid idea imho. In most ways this saw would be fine IF the color was not black.

I bought this saw because of the price and I didn't need an expensive one all the time. The first time out of the box I had to cut a little and then re cut for about 15 minutes to cut off a piece of 2x6. I waited again until recently (probably about 5 months) to use this saw again while I had a more experienced handy man with me. Everything was on right. I can't even get through cutting lattice with this saw. WORSE BUY EVER.

For the price you get a very good tool Wall-Mart web site has to offer. going on line to order and then stopping by the store when you get a chance for easy pick up...made finding a parking spot the only hard thing to do.
