5.0 out of 5 stars Don't head to the job without it!, July 13, 2000
This review is from: SKIL HD5510 6.5 Amp 5-1/2-Inch Circular Saw (Tools & Home Improvement)
I bought Skil's little 5 1/2" three years ago. I have NOT used my 7 1/4" since! This feather weight lets you work all day long without fatique. I have so much more control with this saw, its a miracle. A couple of cautions though. Its kind of hard to find replacement blades for it. B&D's Piranha blade is very good, if you can find one in the 5 1/2" size. Also, its a left hand setup. The motor hangs off to the right. If you rip using a nailed down 3/4" straight edge where the motor rides above it (most righties do,) the maximum depth of cut is fairly shallow (about 1") Other than these two limitations, best buck and a quarter I've ever spent on a woodworking tool.

almost all small ones are left handed set ups, I am glad you alerted me to this because I don't want to reach my arm out so I dont have the blade aligned with my body. I am a right handed person.
