Probably the first thing that will attract any user to the Skilsaw SPT77WML-22 is the blade quality. Diablo blades are far more superior than standard blades because of their triple tooth design. This guarantees burr-free cutting and finishing.
Diablo blades combined with Skilsaw’s exceptional power provide users with improved cutting capabilities. And the ability to handle a large variety of tasks in less time and reduced consumption of power.
The Skilsaw comes with a unique set of features that complement the 7.25 inch Diablo blade. The high-strength aluminum housing stabilizes the movement of the blade. While the laser cut stabilizers on the Diablo blade prevent vibration and absorb noise.
While it’s impossible to find a dead-silent circular saw, the Skilsaw comes very close to quiet operation and vibration and burr-free consistency.
Next is the Diablo blade’s non-stick coating that keeps it sharp, edgy, and smooth for long. It also resists heat build-up and overloading while sawing through steel or thick wood.
The Skilsaw has everything in its power to avoid premature wear and tear. And that’s one quality that’s hard to beat in a worm drive saw. It accelerates performance while avoiding inaccurate cuts.
The cut quality of the blade combined with the motor capacity makes the Skilsaw a precise pick. It cuts like a beast without any of the pushback that a worm drive saw often resorts to. The Skilsaw runs smoothly over most materials.
The 53-level bevel adjustability offers incredible angled cuts. This, joined by the worm drive gear, makes the Skilsaw an even better competitor. Because it is rugged and sturdy enough for serious chores.
You can use it for framing, ripping, and building. The front of the saw has large, noticeable markings that are stamped in the metal shoe rather than painted on. This keeps your cutting line more visible and accurate than before.
For cutting through really tough or long materials, a grip handle is necessary. It improves the body’s weight, even if the circular saw is a bit on the heavier side. The Skilsaw is a heavy-duty saw but I didn’t find that an inconvenience.
Thanks to the sturdy, firm handle that feels solid and reduces user fatigue. It has a foolproof grip that I’m sure will last for a long, long time. The grip is large enough but so is the design between the front and rear end of the housing.
Handles that are inaccurately placed on the die-cast shoe design can end up taking unnecessary room while also getting in the way. But that’s not the case with the Skilsaw. It’s ergonomically placed, more comfortable for long-term use, and sturdier than ever.
The next important feature is the trigger safety switch. The Skilsaw has fewer levers which makes the trigger safety easier to spot and push. It really ties down the whole mechanics of the worm drive saw. And it doesn’t compromise the way the blade feels under while it’s still running.
The blade guard is strong and sturdy so it feels great to push the saw through the material without stopping. With the Diablo blade, this feels even better because it offers smoother finishes and edging.
The top handle that sits over the guard and blade is easy to use. It can rely on it for maintaining speed and stabilizing my cutting line for tough materials. Making things easier, faster, and more efficient than before.
