Looking to cut big lumber in one pass? We visited Skilsaw during the 2018 World of Concrete event, and it just so happens that they’ve recently released a saw that can tackle your larger beams. The Skilsaw Super Sawsquatch is a 16-5/16″ circular saw that can cut clean through lumber up to 6-1/4″ thick.
Even at a 45° angle, the Skilsaw Super Sawsquatch can tackle up to a 4-5/16″ cut. It features a 15-amp motor and Skilsaw’s worm drive for plenty of torque. Due to its magnesium construction, this massive saw weighs less than 30 lbs. This saw features a dust port, repositionable auxiliary handle, and electric brake as well.
Who needs a saw like this? It’s certainly not the framer using 2x and 4x to frame out a house. This is a bigger deal in homes that go for a more rustic or natural look with timber beams that can often run in as 6x lumber. So while the market isn’t as deep for this large a saw, when you to cut large beams, this is the kind of saw you turn to.
