Who Is This Saw For

The Sawsquatch Carpentry Chainsaw is geared for the professional who frequently deals with large materials as well as those who need to quickly gang cut materials such as I-Joists. Due to the vertical alignment of the blade, this is also a great saw for anyone doing notches in large timbers or stair treads as this virtually eliminates the need for “finishing “ the cuts with a jigsaw or handsaw.

This saw is currently available for PreOrder and will cost around $650. This will include the saw, chain, auxiliary handle and a stand.
