SKIL launches most compact and powerful circular saw in the Philippines

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

SKIL invented the portable circular saw in 1924, and now continues in its tradition of innovation by introducing the powerful new SKIL Circular Saw 5500 with a 184 mm cutting blade which is available at the Philippines' power tool distributors.

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.

The SKIL 5500 is tailored for optimum comfort and ease of use. SKIL has addressed 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. When choosing your circular saw from the Philippines' power tool distributors, the SKIL 5500 is certainly the choice.
