MT. PROSPECT, Ill., Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Increased power and durability are key features that pros continue to demand from every tool on the jobsite. With this in mind, SKILSAW introduces the first-ever 10 in. Worm Drive table saw. Known for its deep heritage in engineering Worm Drive handheld saws, the new SKILSAW SPT70WT-22 offers great rip cutting performance and reliability while maintaining a portable size.
Built with Worm Drive gearing for maximum torque and power, the SPT70WT-22 features a best-in-class Dual Field™ motor to increase cutting speed and keep the motor cool, extending the overall motor life. Large cuts can be managed more easily with the saw's ability to rip full sheets of plywood in half with more than 24 in. of cutting capacity. And with a cut depth of 3-1/2 in., cutting 4x material is quicker than ever.
"We've worked closely with carpenters, framers, general contractors and custom builders to ensure the Worm Drive Table Saw is engineered to help them work more efficiently," said Nancy Struijk, Group Product Manager. "With a cut capacity large enough to rip full sheets of plywood and the performance benefits of Worm Drive gearing, this saw will tackle wood cutting jobs with ease. And with SKILSAW's great heritage of pioneering the Worm Drive Technology in circular saws, we're proud to offer the first-ever portable table saw with the same innovative technology."
The SPT70WT-22's all-metal roll cage design and a die cast aluminum table top add to the saw's durability while staying lightweight, making for quick and easy setup and transportation. The SPT70WT-22 includes the Smart Guard System, providing a physical barrier between the user and the saw blade, and an anti-kickback device.
Included with the SKILSAW SPT70WT-22 10 in. Worm Drive Table Saw is a 10 in. Diablo® carbide blade, a miter gauge & self-aligning fence blade, an insert plate, push stick and one blade wrench. Available in March 2016, the saw can be found at home improvement stores nationwide with a suggested retail price of $379.00 (USD). More information will be available on www.skilsaw.com in the future.
