A New Generation

SKILSAW Introduces Improved Line of Worm Drive SKILSAWs

MT. PROSPECT, ILL. – 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 jobsites.

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.

"Developing saws specific to the various cutting applications and trades allows contractors to cut more efficiently," said Nancy Struijk, product manager, circular saws. "This in turn allows them to make the most out of their day on the job."

New SKIL 7 inch Wet Tile Saw Features Unique HydroLock System™ for Less Mess and Easy Clean-up

MT. PROSPECT, ILL. – The cold winter months are a popular time to complete interior home improvement projects, unless the task involves cutting and installing most types of tile. Cutting ceramic, glass or stone tile with a wet saw is a messy job that results in water spray and tile dust going everywhere. Consequently, tile jobs are usually put off until warm weather arrives so the wet mess can be relegated to the outdoors...until now. SKIL's new 7 inch Wet Tile Saw (#3550) makes completing tile projects easier with its unique HydroLock System™ that effectively cuts tile without the mess.

The 7 inch Wet Tile Saw's innovative HydroLock System™ keeps water splash to a minimum so tiles can be cut in the room where they're being installed. The #3550 also comes equipped with a durable rust-resistant aluminum table top and a sliding side extension that can be used on either the right or left side to support tiles up to 18x18 inches, the largest capacity amongst its competition.

MT. PROSPECT, ILL. – Who else but SKIL could invent the world's lightest worm drive saw? The new SKIL MAG77LT weighs in 4 lbs. lighter than the standard worm drive saw* but offers the same power and durability consumers have come to expect from their SKILSAW.
