Working smarter often means having the right tool, and this floor saw qualifies. Instead of using one tool to cut length and another to cut width, this saw lets contractors do both. It cuts hardwood, laminate, or engineered flooring up to 8 inches wide and 3/4 inch thick. It also makes miter cuts between zero and 47 degrees and quickly transitions to a fixed saw allowing rip cuts to width. Cost: $159. SKIL Power Tools. 877-754-5999. www.skil.com.
