Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Skilsaw has introduced its 8-in. Outlaw worm-drive saw, model SPT78MMC, optimized to cut through metal. The worm-drive design and left-side blade offers superior ergonomics and ease of use, and a Dual-Field motor provides more power, precision and durability than competing products, according to company officials.

Reportedly the industry’s first metal-cutting saw to feature a blade window for added visibility, the saw’s largest available chip tray can hold 33-percent more material than standard.

Also in Skilsaw’s new metal-cutting lineup is the SPT62MTC 12-in. dry-cut saw, weighing-in at 38.2 lb. One of the lightest-weight saws in its class, according to company officials, this model features a 15-amp motor, a soft-start feature to reduce torque and extend motor life, and a 4.5-in. cut depth in a compact frame. Other key features of the Outlaw include a depth-of-cut stop that easily adjusts for materials of different sizes and shapes, and on-tool wrench storage for quick and convenient blade changes.
