This skil saw is really good to work with if you right handed. Plus it's really light you not going to get tired if you use it a lot.

This is a great lightweight saw. It cuts through pressure treated lumber quick and effortlesslyon 2x4s but not much larger size boardsSkil HD5510 6.5 Amp 5-1/2-Inch Circular Saw. I use it for 80% of my cuts.

Bought this saw at a flea market 4 yrs ago,have never used the 7 1/4 in saw since.You can buy blades at home depot.A little pricey but everything you read positive about this saw is true.
 
4 Star Rating  "Good saw but needs a carbide blade" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
I like this saw for its size and power, and the blade on the left side. The only drawback is that it comes with a steel blade instead of a carbide-tipped blade. Order an accessory blade at the same time you buy this and save on the shipping.
 
4 Star Rating  "Skil HD5510 5.5 inch circular saw" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Orange County CA.
Great saw, love the blade on left hand side, easy to see your cut. The blade that came with the saw was poor, Chinese made, not carbide tipped, and I used it for one cut before changing to a quality blade. Saw is light weight and well balanced, will cut a 2X easily, should come with a sliding guide for the price. Otherwise a great saw and welcome replacement for my other 5.5 inch saw which I finally wore out in over 18 years use. Good size to have around the 7.25 inch becomes heavy after awhile, this saw is really useful and does everything its big brother can do in most situations.
 
3 Star Rating  "Great size, not such a great value" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from NE USA
From the moment I pulled this saw from the box my heart sank a little bit. With a street price in the $120 range, I guess I expected a bit more than the average $40 DIY type circular saws offer, but that's what my first impression was. Other than the ball bearing construction in the gear housing, it's built like a average saw, has the features of a basic average saw, and basically sells from the virtues of it's small size. It does offer an interesting design that fills a niche though. Having the blade on the left side makes the cut line very visible, and it's light enough to easily handle with one hand most of the time, which is a good thing because there's no designated knob or handle to safely place the left hand on the saw.

The motor is somewhat underpowered...you squeeze the trigger and instead of springing to life, the blade ramps up to speed a second or two later. The same lack of power also leads to easy slow down of the blade when it encounters challenging materials. I didn't expect it to react like a 15 amp motor, but I hadn't expected it to give such an impression that it's weak. It'll do a reasonable job with plywood and even hardwoods if you give it ample time, but if you push it moderately hard, it'll bog down fairly easily. It's more comparable to an average consumer grade battery powered cordless saw than a 120v corded model.

The stock blade is as cheap as they come. Motor power and saw blade quality pretty much determine the performance of any circular saw, and this blade doesn't even have carbide teeth. To add to the woes of the HD5510, the selection of aftermarket blades that will fit this saw is severely limited. Features and accessories are just about non-existent. It seems as though this saw hasn't been updated in over 20 years, which would be ok if it didn't still fetch a premium. It's time that Skil added some new features to this saw...possibly some dust collection options, an 8 or 9 amp motor, a laser guide, edge guide, composite shoe plate, and/or possibly a nice carrying case to make it more competitive with the PC345, PC314, Makita 5005 and 4200, and the Ridgid Fuego.

The HD5510 is a mixed bag for me. Compared to a 7-1/4" 15 amp saw, it's nice and light, easy to control, and can make most cuts if not pushed too hard, but it's fairly weak and offers little in the way of convenience features. I managed to squeeze a decent quality 6" Freud Diablo 40T blade in by removing the blade guard...definitely not a move I'd recommend, but it's what I felt I needed to do to make it function to my satisfaction. Another 25%-30% more power would be welcome too. I bought this saw sight unseen based on many positive reviews, but other than the benefits of it's lightweight, I don't feel that it offers anything to merit its $120 price tag. If I'd had the opportunity to scope this out in person, I think I would have passed and opted for the PC345 or the Ridgid 3400...both more expensive (though not by much), but both offer quite a bit more saw than the Skil. It's not a bad saw, it's just fairly expensive for what you get, and I'm disappointed about the value.
