This worm drive saw model is manufactured by Skilsaw, a company that recently repositioned itself on the market by branching from the Skill Tool brand and focusing exclusively on manufacturing industry-grade circular saws. It is a heavy-duty saw that is geared towards professional carpenters that need to have a reliable piece of machinery. So far, Skilsaw is delivering on its promise, as very little customers have anything but the words of praise for this particular model.
This worm drive saw offer precision of cut and accuracy that is unparalleled for its class. It is made from durable but lightweight magnesium, so it is both easy to handle and maneuver and guaranteed to take a heavy beating and still work like a charm. The housing keeps the motor cooler for extended periods of time, allowing you to tackle longer jobs without the fear of burnout or damage.
While most users agree that this saw is absolutely worth its price some note that there are some smaller issues that the next models could resolve. They say that the bevel stop at 45 degrees sometimes work and sometimes doesn’t, which is not a deal breaker but can be annoying.
SKILSAW SPT77WML-01 Worm Drive Circular Saw is Skilsaw’s attempt to get back on the horse, and judging by customer feedback, they are succeeding at it. It is a great product geared towards working professionals that will use it frequently. It doesn’t disappoint, and even though it is a bit pricier than other saws on the market, its performance certainly justifies the price.
