Big Foot Tools is a great company with excellent service. Dino provides top notch service. My first Big Foot was purchased over 20 years ago and it was still running strong and somehow disappeared over the last year. So I purchased the newer Big Foot model which is improved over the previous model in many ways. The Big Foot far surpasses what the Sawsquatch provides as it is lighter, more well-balanced, has a wider table, and comes with a much better Big Foot blade. The Sawsquatch comes with a POS Diablo 40 tooth blade that will wobble and if you are ripping, do a really bad job leaving the top side somewhat straight and the bottom cut really wavy; whereas a Big Foot blade, are best in the market for these larger beam saws! I ripped a bunch of headers down with the Big Foot & Big Foot blade in place and cut straight on both sides perfectly! The Big Foot also cuts at a 90 degree angle depth of 3-7/8” where the Sawsquatch cuts 3-5/8”, both cut the same at a 45 at 2-3/4”. Both saws are made in China; however, the Big Foot is assembled in the USA. Big Foot has is 5300rpm where Sawsquatch is 4700rpm, which may be the only thing the Sawsquatch might (apparently the lower RPMs are too cut through the material better) have over the Big Foot; however, I have had no bogging down problems with the Big Foot saw at the 5300 RPMs. They also both cut up to a 51° angle. You can buy an accessory for the Big Foot though in which you remove the table and add a 75° table which you cannot do with the Sawsquatch! You can purchase a 24” Big Foot rip guide to use with the Super Sawsquatch or the Big Foot.

One of the divisions in my company is building heavy timber structures. I have bigger saws but this is the one that gets most of the use. It feels like a regular worm drive but will cut nearly 4" deep, perfect for 4"x6" and 4"x8 rafters and joinery. We even use it on the bigger timbers and just flip the timber to access the other side for the second cut. It's easier than breaking out the big saw. If there's lot's of big timbers to cut the big saw would be better but for most of our joinery and cut offs we use this one. I wish it had more power but it still does fine. A bump up in power requires 240 volts and converters, too much headache. The blade that comes with it is pretty good but put a real good carbide blade on this thing and you can do some very cool work! You won't be disappointed.
- Thomas Brasby
I used one of these to rip dozens of 8x8x18 reclaimed timbers of varrying Species, red, white and yellow pine. Full depth passes, at a reasonable rate of feed. 8+ hours a day for 4 or 5 days straight, milling drop joists for a timber frame loft.

I was so impressed with this tools abilities that I had to own one for myself. Saved my pennies and bit the bullet.

Very satisfied.
- Kas Simpson
Used it for the past week and love it. Visibility in line of sight is good, powerful motor. The wider base plate i thought would be bulky at first, but turns out is super nice. Motor has plenty of power. I read some reviews where people were have issues with the guard spring being to stiff. I haven't had any issues. The weight is surprisingly low when factoring in the size of the saw. Great saw, recommend it over the Skil's Sasquatch.
- Timothy D Halzerig Jr
This saw is a must have for the guy or lady who cuts lumber larger than .2x4. Great for headers and post. It performs great and has a lot of power, use the recommended power cord. I would recommend this saw for the builder, pro or homeowner.
- Richard Manley
This saw will get the job done, no matter what. The quality of construction is excellent and the saw works every bit as good as promised. It has plenty of torque and is easy to hang on to. It is a bit heavy but with this kind of power it works to your advantage. Would recommend this saw to anyone.
- Alex
I'm really happy with this saw. It performs just as I expected. I've been using the Big Foot for several years now. If you're cutting 4x stock, you shouldn't be without one of these.
