works great but on our crew its called "the death saw" no one likes to use it be warned
Great specialty tool. This tool should only be used by a pro.
Very labor saving device. We used it to cut through the hardwood flooring all around our kitchen cupboards. It enabled us to easily remove the wood flooring that ran under the cabinets.
the saw only kicked backed on me once, but once is enough! make sure you obey all the operation instructions,great handy tool for my job,worth the money
This saw saved me a lot of time removing plywood from the floor, cutting along the wall & under the toe kick on the cabinets. The saw is safe to use, but you need to be careful using as it will kick back. The saw's design allows cutting almost flush with the wall & under the cabinet's toe kick. Very happy with the saw.
Good quality and easy to operate.
Will kickback Push forward only. What a kickback!!!
Read instructions and no matter how far behind you are take your time or it wilkick you back big time.Was able to cut on curve (nort supoosed to)taking my time and going slowly, big help.
Great Saw, sure helped me remove 3/4" wood floor from 500 sq ft kitchen. But wow is it dangerous. I did everything the directions said and that son of a gun kicked back on me and my index finger no longer has full range of motion. I am not sure how it did not snap my finger. Again, Great saw but very dangerous.
Prior to buying this tool I read all the reviews paying particular note to the kick-back issue. After removing 1200sf of 3/4" subflooring I think it only kicked backed 3 times and that was was in the beginning. "IF" I followed the instructions I never had a kick-back problem. When I first started using this tool if I got off line from where I wanted to cut I instinctively backed up, while the saw was running - THAT IS A BIG NO-NO!!!! When I quit trying to back up I quit having kick-back problems. I gave this saw a "con" on poor design only because the top handle is too small. It's not big enough to accomodate a full hand grip and I supposedly got the "new" design with a bigger handle. I can't imagine what it was like before.
