Nice saw, too bad this isn't what you get.
This is a good saw, too bad if you're like me, the product you get isn't what you think you're ordering. The specs on this page are for model PC15TCSM, which is also available on this site. What I got was model PC15TCS, which is 2 pounds heavier, and only has a 45 degree bevel capacity.

Unfortunately, customer service was only able to insist that I received the model I was suppose to, because the webpage to this and model PC15TCSM are exactly the same. They did offer to ship out a replacement, but said it would likely be the same model that I already got.

Bottom line, fix your website or ship what you promise.

Great tool, Great price
I bought this tool reconditioned about 4 years ago from cpo and it is still in great shape. I've built endless projects with it. It serves me as a miter, table and rip saw.

Great price for outstanding saw
After having my last electric skill saw stolen, I decided it was time to buy a new one. After doing extensive research, I selected this refurbished Porter Cable skill saw from CPO. I was looking and focused on quality and price. I am a maintenance man at a local horse stable, and needed a saw I could rely on. Shipping was extremely quick, and I started using it the day it arrived.

While it was refurbished, at least the one I received looked brand new. After research, I had decided I did not need a skill saw with a laser, as so many reviews I read for those saws complained about the laser alignments. However, I found with this Porter Cable skill saw, it was extremely easy to align and it cut through everything I threw at it with ease.

While it is heavy, I knew that when I ordered it, having compared its weight to other saws. If you want a light, plastic, less well built saw you can certainly buy one... but I wanted a saw that would stand up to all day use, and not break if I dropped it, or it got rattled around in my truck's toolbox.

Simply a great saw, at a great price, from one of the top manufacturers. As for CPO, all the refurbished tools I have bought from them have been outstanding, and I will certainly continue to buy from them in the future.

Nice Saw
I purchased this saw for use at home. This is a nice heavy duty one for casual home use. My son is a carpenter and he thought it was a very good saw from a trusted brand and that I made a good choice. I think it's a great saw at a great price.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
