The most compact and powerful circular saw is launched in Singapore

The SKIL Circular Saw 5500 now available in Singapore offers great speed, power, and durability in its class.

Having invented the portable circular saw in 1924, SKIL continues in its tradition of innovation by introducing the powerful new SKIL Circular Saw 5500 with a 184 mm cutting blade. With its cutting-edge, user-focused features, the SKIL Circular Saw 5500 is designed to be the premier tool of choice for professional wood workers in Singapore.

The SKIL Circular Saw 5500 is powered by a 1500 watt motor for faster cutting speed. At 3.9 kg, this compact circular saw also boasts the highest power to weight ratio in its class.

Fast, powerful, and durable, the SKIL Circular Saw 5500 is perfect for both standard and heavy duty applications and can be used to cut a wide range of materials, including softwoods, hardwoods, timber floor boards, laminated wooden boards, and skirting boards.

This circular saw is tailored for optimum comfort and ease of use. SKIL is a power tools brand with decades of experience and this circular saw has addressed issues such as the "sight to line of cut" problem by introducing a two-point view of the cutting line, allowing users to follow the line from both sides of the saw blade. The left side also features a cutting window that provides the user with a clear line of sight.

With its gear housed in die-cast aluminum body, the SKIL Circular Saw 5500 also offers outstanding durability, exemplified by its strong guard, stainless steel foot plate, enhanced carbon brush, bevel and depth setting mechanism and end cap design.

The circular saw's upper and lower metal guards have a thickness of 2.5mm, well above the industry standard of 1.2 - 1.5 mm. The lower guard features a patented, anti-snag design, allowing it to withstand the rigors of rough cutting applications, particularly when making narrow cut-offs.

Unlike conventional guards which may bend or break easily, the robust design of the SKIL Circular Saw 5500's lower guard ensures it will maintain its integrity even when dropped on hard ground. The stamped metal foot plate of this circular saw is similarly designed with rough cutting applications in mind to provide extra stability and durability to the tool.

An integrated auxiliary handle provides extra comfort and optimum sawing guidance control. Lock-off switch allows users to operate the switch from either side of the handle. These handy features, together with a combination of the circular saw's compact design and light weight, offer users an efficient and convenient tool for fatigue-free working.

The SKIL Circular Saw 5500 also features an optimized chip ejection system. Chips are bundled as they flow out of the dust port in the upper guard, allowing for improved dust management. SKIL is a power tools brand known globally for its quality power tools and this circular saw will compliment its existing portfolio.
