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.

From the Manufacturer

Rip, cross-cut and miter--now, one saw does it all. Leave it to SKIL to invent a saw that makes flooring so much simpler. There's no need for two saws and no more up and down and back and forth to cut planks. Lightweight, portable, and easy to use, this floor saw lets you rip, cross-cut, miter, and lay laminate, hardwood, and engineered flooring all in one place. Designed to cut through hardwood, laminate, and engineered flooring up to 8 inches wide and 3/4 inch thick, the SKIL flooring saw smoothly makes miter cuts between zero and 47 degrees and also quickly transitions to a fixed saw allowing rip cuts to width. The saw features a large aluminum tabletop with miter detents at the most popular angles, ensuring cutting accuracy for all skill and experience levels. The tabletop has a 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 allows for support of extra long flooring pieces so they don't bend or tip off the table during cuts, increasing accuracy and safety. The SKIL flooring saw comes with a 40-tooth carbide tipped blade, which provides a clean cut without shredding laminate or splintering oak. Additional features include a built-in cord wrap, a handle for easy portability, and a convenient push stick that stores under the table top.

Customer Reviews

Highly recommend this saw for flooring projects.
C. J. Farren
Very easy to use, very safe to use and, though light weight, is more than tough enough to handle laminate and wood sawing.
Rusty Schucklefurd
It makes nice and clean cuts that are still smooth.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )

This is my first shot at doing a video review, so we'll see how it works out.

The video portion of the review contains the following details:
1) Setup of the Skill 3600 Flooring Saw
2) Overview of features
3) Basic operation
4) Switching between miter and ripping modes
5) Lots of free opinions :)

After using this flooring saw for a while, let me say that it is impressive for its size. As a DIY'er with limited space for tools I'm always looking for something that will fill multiple roles and this saw seems to have some promise in that area. Aside from use as a flooring saw, I'm hoping it will work in a pinch for some limited ripping as well; although it is limited by the 3/4" max thickness as well as the little 7 amp motor (both of which are fine for flooring).

So far, the function of the saw has been flawless and the only minor complaint I can even think of is the method used for changing blades (which I cover in the video).

Overall, I highly recommend this saw for either DIY'ers that don't already have a table saw + miter saw or for people who want something portable for installing floors.

I am a flooring contractor.I got this Skil flooring saw at Lowe's for $[...]. Used it on (approx.)a dozen jobs (mostly 8 mil laminate).It is a solid tool that does what it's designed for.Usually when I install laminate in an occupied home I must leave my saws outside or in the garage.And the trips get annoying,as well as slow me down.This tool does the job of a table saw and miter. And is lightweight,portable and clean enough to be by my side all day.Even after I hook up my small ridgid vac and hose to it!It saves time and that makes money!The only drawback is that because of the small dia of the saw(4 1/2"),it eats blades!(1 per room,200 ft).If they redesigned this to a full size circular saw it would be the shizzle!.However,they probably won't.Because they want to make a fortune on these specialty blades!($10. ea.)Above all I would still recommend it to anyone who want to save time on wood and laminate installations.

I recently purchased this Skil Floor saw from Amazon, which had the best price I could find. First off it sets up right out of the box. I mainly purchased it because I will be using it to install 800 square feet of laminated flooring. But in the meantime I have used it to install Armstrong ceiling paneling. I used it to cut the furring strips, and the ceiling paneling itself which is similar to any flooring. It worked like a charm. I have ripped and cut material up to 3/4 of an inch with no problems, What I like about it the most so far, is it the saw and base are light weight and easy to move around. I have the Skil set up on saw horses and a board. The Skil saw is more convenient than lugging my miter saw and stand around to different rooms. Currently I am using it to cut trim work on my screened in back porch. I am making my own screens and this saw has come in really handy for that. I recommend this Skil saw for flooring,ceiling panels, and some trim work.

Watch D. Matheny video in Amazon's reviews. He covers it all.

Pros so far:
Light weight, easy to carry
Easy to switch from ripping mode to miter cuts

Cons:
unusual blade size

I had to install 1,300 square feet of Formica Laminate Quintessa 12mm (1/2") thick.
I started using a cordless Ryobi saw which wasn't very accurate for cutting anything! Less than a third through I came across an ad at Home depot for A Laminate Saw which I immediately purchased/ ordered because they sell it online only ($149)... it was also made for/by Ryobi which was an improvement over the Ryobi Cordless saw, but still had many shortcomings:
1- the visual saw guide for ripping is not very precise: within 1/4" give or take.
2- The fence does not align anytime you move it; and very inaccurate... one has to use a Square every time to align it properly. The fence itself is the cheapest you can get.
3- The Ends of the sliding rails are not covered and saw dust requires cleaning and oiling very often.
4- only one trigger
5- The saw blade needs replacing quite often... and home depot doesn't carry it in stock.

By the time I got halfway through ...I discovered that Lowes sells also the Laminate Saw made by/for Skil ($149) ... When I saw it and tested it at Lowes , I was amazed how much better made it was:
- Very accurate visual saw guide.
- a better fence all around, and very accurate.
- Covered rail sleeves to protect from saw.
- Double trigger: one for ripping and one the miter
- They had replacement saw blades in stock

So I bought the Skil and 2 replacement blades in case, and took back the Junky Ryobi!
Skil turned out to be more precise in every respect and has a cleaner cut... I am finished with the installation and did not need to replace the blade yet.

The only gripe is it can't cut (miter) quarter rounds because they are 1" + thick (the side that needs to be trimmed!)

(it is obvious from the way it is set up that a third Chinese party Manufacturer makes it for both Skil and Ryobi to their own specifications.)

Much easier to do flooring with this Skill saw. Previously I had used a combination of a miter saw, a circular saw, and a table saw to install flooring. I found this saw replaced all three saws for my latest project, a small bedroom. I am a 60+ y.o. do it yourself grandma. I'm really pleased with the saw and will use it to do two more bedrooms, then who knows. It should work well for making pieces for my bee hives and for birdhouses.
