Skil HD5510 Circular Saw Review
The Skil HD5510 circular saw is by far one of the lightest circular saws available today, which makes it extremely easy to control and make precision cuts. In addition, the reduced weight allows you to work for hours on end without fatigue. But, don’t let the feather-weight of the Skil HD5510 fool you, it packs quite a serious punch.
In most situations, the Skil HD5510 5-1/2 inch circular saw can stand up against most of the 7-1/4 inch saws on the market today. It easily rips through 2 by 8′s with surgical precision, and cutting ¾ plywood feels like a hot knife through butter. This little marvel can easily handle 95 percent or more of the cutting tasks that most people do with larger saws.
In addition to a powerful motor in a lightweight package, the Skil HD5510 also has a lot of impressive features you typically only see in much more expensive saws. Precision helical-cut gears and ball bearing construction give the powerful 6.5 amp motor the durability needed to handle the rigorous abuse of the work site. The left-side blade configuration is perfect for right handed people. It gives you a clear line of site and places all of the controls in a convenient and easy to use location.
All in all, the Skil HD5510 5-1/2 inch circular saw is an amazing value and an excellent addition to any tool collection. By using the HD5510 in place of a 7-1/4 inch saw, you will have more control and will feel a lot less fatigued by the end of the day. Backed by Skil’s build quality and craftsmanship, you have an extremely versatile, light weight, powerful and durable circular saw.
