Husqvarna Floor Saw
If you are only going to be able to buy or rent one type of saw, a miter saw is a way to go. It is flat and sturdy enough to hold the floorboard or trim in place. It's possible to make right angles for corners and chevron cuts for unique floor designs.
A handsaw can be purchased for making straight or miter cuts, but if you need to make hundreds of cuts, the process will be quite time consuming and tiresome. There is no table on this saw, yet it functions similarly to a table saw. It can be taken anywhere with you. This saw is fine for making simple cuts in hardwood floors. The downside is that you hold the saw in one hand and control the floorboard with the other. When making precise cuts, mistakes are more likely to occur.
Rip-cutting the wood boards lengthwise is easiest with a circular saw. The circular saw's portability can make it a great option depending on the job site and the number of rip cuts required.
