When it comes to a circular saw, there is only one real circular saw and that is the Skilsaw.  Skilsaw is the saw that built America.  The reason is they were the first portable circular saw and on top of that, they had the best drive system, the Worm Drive.  While technology has changed over the years, the concept hasn’t.  The worm drive is still the best circular saw design for power and performance.  Skilsaw changed the game when they came out with the first 7-1/4″ cordless worm drive.  Well, they just upped their game with the first cordless 10-1/4″ worm drive circular saw.  Yes, as crazy as that sounds, they designed a 10-1/4″ circular saw for production.  Let’s check out the Skilsaw 10-1/4″ cordless circular saw.
