Description

Construction

SKILSAW SPT70V-11 Review Construction

This circular saw can cut through 6x material including lumber 6-1/4 inch thick. So the 6-1/4 inch cutting capacity is quite impressive. Especially since the blade cutting capacity is supported by a solid magnesium footplate and a dual-field motor.

The magnesium footplate absorbs maximum impact. So as a result, the circular saw rattles and shakes less and makes barely a noise during use. The die-cast magnesium has a lighter weight which improves portability without feeling too flimsy and thin.

The 15-amp dual-field motor, based on the way it’s designed, works to keep the machine cool and well-ventilated for a long time. This, I’m sure you must have guessed by now, reduces heat and keeps the exterior and interior at a comfortable temperature.

The SKILSAW SPT70V-11 Worm Drive is an ergonomic and convenient circular saw to use. It has a balanced weight and size for a worm drive circular saw. And proves useful if you’re a professional who needs something solid, sturdy, and durable.

Speaking of things sturdy and durable, did I mention that this offers a 32-tooth carbide-tipped blade?  Nothing feels dainty or “just-average” about this circular saw. It’s powerful and direct!

Motor Performance

SKILSAW SPT70V-11 Review Motor Performance

The durable 15-amp motor stays cool which keeps it running consistently for a long period of time. While this alone should convince you to buy the SKILSAW SPT70V-11, what really seals the deal is the straight-cutting performance with no kickbacks. 

The motor performance promises smooth and effective cutting of 6x and lumber. The blade is sharp and has a reduced weight which makes it easier to manage.

This looks like any other traditional circular saw but the SKILSAW can handle some really intricate cuts. It can cut through big boards easily and without a hassle.

The bevel depth of 6-1/4-inch at 90 and 4-5/16-inch at 45-degrees makes things simpler and faster. What this really means is that the SKIL can cut through a board without overheating, reversing, or choking.

After weeks and weeks of cutting using this circular saw, I’ve figured that the SKIL beats down the competition in more ways than one. It stays true to its appearance which means I can consistently cut through 12×16, 16×16, and anything below. And what’s really shocking is the worm drive motor produces zero kickback. It’s so smooth and adequate to use – I’m impressed!

Ergonomics

The SKILSAW also includes a dust collection port to keep things clean. It really streamlines the design of the circular saw because it makes the saw easier to use and the area stays clean even under pressure.

You can easily connect the dust collection port to standard vacuums. The power is long and flexible enough for versatile use.

Another amazing thing about the circular saw is the electronic brake. This will instantaneously stop the blade after the trigger release.

The flexible auxiliary handle can be moved from one place to another. That is, on the top or to the front for better control and ease of use. Allowing you to choose your ideal position for a stronger grip and better visibility.

The additional accessories like the multi-function wrench and saw stand contribute to the ergonomics of the circular saw. Making it easier to cut through thick wood in a variety of ways – with or across the wood’s grain. It can do so in a single pass with no ragged surface lines or saw lines.
