For generations, the name SKILSAW has been synonymous with quality and durability. With the recent introduction of a new family of worm drives, SKILSAW continues to build its hard-earned reputation as the “go-to” saw on job sites.

The new worm drive family includes three saws: the SKILSAW SHD77-02, the SKILSAW SHD77M-02 and the SKILSAW MAG77LT. Each is designed to achieve different cutting applications.

The main feature of the new SKILSAWs is their reduced weight. Each saw is lighter than its predecessor, which was a big improvement noted by SKILSAW user groups. The new saws also feature a multi-function wrench that stores on the saw foot for convenience, a Cut-Ready Depth of Cut SystemTM for quick and easy adjustment and a 24-tooth carbide blade.

Perfect for concrete forming and masons, the 7 1/4-inch Aluminum Worm Drive SKILSAW is one of the most versatile saws on the market, making it the rugged workhorse of the job site. The new SHD77-02 Aluminum Worm Drive Saw continues to provide power and performance, and is now a pound lighter at 14.1 pounds. Specific features include:

    · 51o bevel with Zero Adjust and positive stop at 45o
    · 15 Amp, 5300 RPM
    · 1 pound lighter than SHD77*

The SHD77M-02 is a 7 1/4-inch Magnesium Worm Drive SKILSAW that is ideal for general contractors and builders who need power to get through demanding cuts. The saw weighs-in at 12.5 pounds, which means less stress on your arms and back when making rough cuts. The SHD77M-02 features:

    · 53o bevel with Zero Adjust and positive stop at 45o
    · 15 amp, 5300 RPM
    · 3 pounds lighter than SHD77*

Weighing four pounds lighter than the standard worm drive saw*, the MAG77LT offers the durability of a SKILSAW but is significantly lighter, making it ideal for framers and remodelers. This worm drive saw is known for its speed, which can make or break any job. At 11.6 lbs, the lighter magnesium construction of the MAG77LT reduces fatigue for less wear and tear on the user. This 7 1/4-inch Magnesium Worm Drive SKILSAW features:

    · 53o bevel with Zero Adjust and positive stop at 45o
    · 15 Amp, 5300 RPM
    · Anti-Snag Lower Guard

The introduction of the new line of saws kicks-off the “What Are You Made Of? Challenge” taking place April through August 2014 throughout the West Coast and Southwest United States. At more than 40 events, tradespeople will be challenged to hold a MAG77LT at arm’s length. Those who meet the challenge will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a new 2014 RAM pick-up truck. In addition, all participants who qualify will receive a $5 Buffalo Wild Wings gift card.

Visit the “What Are You Made Of? Challenge” event details and event calendar.

All three SKILSAWs will be available online and in select retail and distributor locations nationwide beginning March 2014.
