Very good tool.
James R. Wade
As others have said, this is likely a one trick pony, but it does exactly what it's advertised to do.

Great for most rip cuts across entire length of laminate.

I bought this saw elsewhere because of a significant price difference. I also bought this saw as a reconditioned unit. With the exception of the "Reconditioned" tag on the saw, the "One Year Warranty" stamped in red on the photocopied owner's manual, and the absence of a retail box, you'd never know it wasn't new. The blade was new, too. More on that later.

In an email response from Skil, I learned that the differences between the 3600 and the 3601 are: The 3601 loses the dual on/off switch in favor of a single lever switch that can also be operated with the thumb while the hand is on the saw handle. In either case, the saw stays on when the switch is activated and stays that way until you deliberately turn the saw off; the carriage lock is near the top of the handle on the 3601, where (I think) it was on the side of the carriage for the 3600; and, (again, I think) the saw handle sits at a little bit lower angle on the 3601 than on the 3600. In any case, the 3601 is comfortable to operate.

Out of the box, I made some 90 degree crosscuts in 1/4" thick Jatoba. I was disappointed on two counts: Regardless of the rate of feed, there was considerable burning (and while Jatoba burns easily, it is still a flooring material and a saw has to do a good job of cutting it); and, the Jatoba splintered where the blade emerged from the Jatoba. I'm old, and "this ain't my first rodeo." Most often, when a blade is included with a tool, it is a "throw in" and not of the quality you find in blades made by companies whose only business is making blades. In order to give the saw a fair chance, I had purchased a Freud Diablo blade from Amazon at the same time I bought the saw. Attempting to change out the blade is where the saw lost one star with me.

There is one issue with this and it is not the product. The price of this tool is low, but the box is huge taking up retail space. It is also basically a one-purpose tool that a homeowner will use then probably sell off as they won't have a future need for it and it takes up too much space. Great idea for a tool but with limited utility. These were selling at big box stores for $159, then $149, then they were put on Clearance in one of the stores only for $129 (though online they show $149,99 and so did the register at the store which had to overridden). Simply put they were slow sellers and took up too much space. This is a NEW Skill tool at this I am writing this so going on clearance was simply following the rules of selling/retail space. I made sure I got one before they were discontinued at some point. This tool was originally a Lowes exclusive. Even though I have every tool to accomplish the same thing this made the job easier and was more convenient. I am doing too many projects right now and I needed to do the floor cutting as efficiency as possible. I saved a few thousand doing three rooms of floors doing by myself as I used 5/16" real hardwood Bruce flooring.

ONE IMPORTANT LAST POINT!!!! Cutting angles is easy on flooring because it is flat and you can flip it over to get the angle the other direction. But if you hoped to cut angles on molding you can only do it one direction because one side of molding is curved so you can't flip it over and get it flat. It was never intended for molding as for angles.

Used this to install laminate flooring. Cutting was a breeze and made the job easy. empty the vacuum bag often or even try a good trick of attaching your home vacuums hose to it for added dust free conditions. perfect for straight cuts on wide boards and miter cutting moulding.

I'll keep it short and sweet. Great for most rip cuts across entire length of laminate. Dust bag catches some dust but you want to use this with a vacuum if you're using it indoors. Also good for many (but not all) miter cuts. Blade will dull over time (of course...) but the stock blade makes quite a few cuts before it begins to slow down -- nothing unreasonable. The only significant drawback I noted is that, during operation, it's difficult to see the exact position of the blade. This means that you need to exercise a bit more care with these cuts and that it's difficult to cut to a given position with mm precision. However, the upside is that, if push comes to shove and you need to use the saw for these types of cuts, the saw does travel very smoothly on the rail -- this makes it relatively straightforward to estimate about where one needs to stop and then bring the saw in, back the saw up out of the cut a bit, eyeball where the cut was and, then bring the saw in again and cut a bit more until you're where you want to be.

I've decided to put laminate to my living room's floor. I've a miter saw, but it's not sliding, so laminate is to wide for it, I also have a table saw, but still didn't make a precise cross cut sled for it (shame on me :-), so I was in dilemma to buy an expensive compound miter sliding saw which is about $500 and actually a nice tool or to give a try to this little thing. So, it works perfectly well and it's designed to work with different sorts of floor. I've tried both rip and cross cuts, both work well for me, may be only suggestion is to replace a blade with more finest to make cut cleaner. Highly recommend it for everyone why does flooring.
