Skil has just introduced a new miter saw specifically designed for flooring. This saw is different than every other miter saw you have used and I feel it will be a big hit for anyone who has to install hardwood floors.
For me what makes this saw so great is the fact that it sits low to the ground. Most miter saw beds are 2 to 4 inches off the ground making hard to accurately cut long pieces of flooring. They are prone to having sharp edges on the feet so you have to be careful not to scratch your new floor if you don’t have them mounted on a stand. The Skill Flooring Saw sits low to the ground and with just a scrap 2×4 for support you can easily and accurately make your cuts. The bottom has no sharp edges so you can safely work on and around your new floor.

All-in-One Flooring Saw Offers Everything You Need
Tackling a floor installation project usually requires a miter and table saw, each designed for a specific task. However, the SKIL 3600-02 Flooring Saw’s all-in-one design gives you everything you need in one portable, powerful package. Saving you time, energy and money, this flooring saw makes accurate cross, miter, and rip cuts.
Whether your installation project takes you to the attic or the basement, this flooring saw goes right along with you, making it a great alternative to larger bench-top tools. Now you can measure, cut, and place your flooring planks without having to get up and walk back and forth to wherever your miter and table saws are set up, which means you can complete your installation in less time. For further convenience, the compact SKIL 3600-02 Flooring Saw offers a built-in cord wrap, a handle for easy portability, and a convenient push stick that stores under the tabletop.
Cleanly Cuts Many Materials
With the ability to rip through hardwood, laminate, and engineered flooring, the SKIL Flooring Saw features a 40-tooth carbide-tipped blade that provides a clean cut without shredding or splintering. Design engineers at SKIL gave this all-in-one tool an aluminum tabletop height of 1-1/2 inches, the same height as a piece of scrap 2x material or two pieces of stacked oak hardwood flooring. This design safely supports extra-long flooring pieces, so they don’t bend or tip off the table as you cut. In addition, dual sliding rails keep your material in place to provide accuracy and smooth operation during cross and miter cuts.
Simplifies Miter Cuts
This flooring saw has the capacity to make angled miter cuts between 0 and 47 degrees. Offering built-in miter table-top detents at 0, 22.5 and 45 degrees–the most common miter cut angles used in flooring installations–this flooring saw ensures cutting accuracy for all skill and experience levels.
