      Comments about XDrive 13 Amp 2.3 HP 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw:

      The Skil 5485-01 is a solid corded saw from the company that I think popularized circular saws. It has a lot of power (12 amps, 2.3HP) without being too heavy and comes with a carbide tipped saw blade so I was able to start work immediately without having to go to the store.

      I had to cut down some 3/4" plywood and the Skil had no problems. Yes, it was a little annoying to deal with the cord, but not having to stop to charge batteries is helpful and the saw felt like it had a lot more power than my cordless.

      The other big benefit is size. This saw has a 7 1/4" blade, but cordless saws are almost always 6 1/2". This can be a problem because certain blades for HardieBoard, Cement fiber board, and other harder materials only come in 7 1/4".

      I like my cordless saw for a lot of general work, but for the specialty projects the Skil is hard to pass up because of the blade size, power, and cost.

            • A:

              The link to the original product page has moved or is not available so I'm not sure which model number you are seeking. However, the product description states "Factory-Reconditioned" and the company who's website I was directed to sells Skil factory reconditioned items.

          New Vs. 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.
