Skilsaw SPT88-01 Worm drive Miter Saw And SPT55-11 Worm drive Carpentry Chainsaw

Skilsaw is known for their worm drive saws and now they’re taking the next step which is only natural. A worm drive miter saw and carpentry chainsaw. Yup you heard right, Skilsaw has built a full size 12” dual bevel sliding miter saw SPT88-01 and a worm drive 16” carpentry chainsaw SPT55-11 . As the name implies both units feature a worm drive gearbox which allows for a larger motor to be placed inline with the cut line, resulting in the ability to use a larger motor without adding width to the tool.

My thoughts: Skilsaw is pushing into new territories with these two new saws and it should interesting to see how they perform. Knowing Skilsaw’s reputation they should have excellent power and durability. On the miter saw features included dual beveling up to 45° left and right, 4”x14” cross cut capacity, and a 15 amp dual field motor hooked up to a worm drive gearbox.

The carpentry chainsaw also features a dual field 15 amp motor with a worm drive gearbox, an on board chain oil tank, and a 16” bar and chain featuring more teeth than a standard chainsaw chainsaw chain.
