Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by lighter than my old worm drive saw My 25 year old Craftsman worm drive saw which was made by skill and rated at 13 amps seemed to have more torque than this new saw and it looked really cool with the black blade safety cover and black handles. I finally burned the craftsman up cutting block.Hope this new saw lasts half as long. Not sure about quality yet but it seems ok.   April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing I have worked in the industry and have had the 77, mag 77.  Saw they came out with this lighter saw in the mag77lt and since I have a bad wrist I thought I'd upgrade.  After  using this saw now for a few weeks I am amazed how lightweight it is not giving up any of the durability and power that the other saws had.  Am so happy with this new saw and would highly recommend it.  March 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw provides power and stability Recently, I had the opportunity to test the Skil MAG77LT, 7 1/4” worm drive circular saw. I can't say that I had high expectations due to past experiences with Skil brand tools, but after testing this saw, it became obvious that Skil is changing, and now it's time for me to “eat some crow.” I have to admit that I really like this saw, and here's why....Skil emphasizes this saw is 4 lbs lighter than one of their other versions. I weighed the saw, and came up with an unofficial weight of 13 lbs. That's a lot of weight to handle all day long if you compare it to a standard circular saw, but the saw felt very comfortable, balanced, and the weight never became too cumbersome. If you dislike the unsteady movements of a standard circular saw when cutting a straight line, then you'll appreciate the stability and smoothness offered from the Skil MAG77LT.The motor is rated at 15 amps, so there's plenty of power for those marathon rips, and I had the perfect job for it. I attached the factory equipped saw blade, which was a 24 tooth carbide tipped blade, and put them both to the test. I had four 2X6's, totaling 86 linear feet and each board required a 45 degree bevel rip. About 40 feet into the rip, a circuit breaker was thrown. The factory blade didn't take long to overheat and bind, so I reset the circuit breaker and purposely pushed it through to keep the amps high (this is what ruins most saws). After tripping the circuit breaker for a second and third time, I was finally 80 feet into the rips and the saw had literally began to smoke. I reset the circuit breaker and finished the remaining 6 ft rip. The motor performed like a champ, plain and simple, and it still does, even after a good smoking. With the task of rip cutting, the factory blade did not perform so well, but it still crosscuts just fine.The oil, brushes, and bearings are serviceable. For extended tool life, I believe this is a necessity when abuse (like the smoking I gave it) is inevitable. Also, there is an adjustment to ensure the blade is 90 degrees to the base. The check I made showed the blade was only out 1/16”, which is perfectly acceptable for it's intended use, but I decided to adjust the blade anyway.This saw has a feature called “Vari-Torque Clutch,” It's basically a kickback clutch which allows the shaft to turn while the blade remains motionless in a bind. This is something I find hard to manage with 2X material. The clutching action works as intended, and a couple of times I never knew the blade was in a bind, because it only felt like the blade guard was hanging. Admittedly, I finally had to tighten the blade and bypass the clutch to keep cutting bevels, but the Vari-Torque Clutch later redeemed itself with crosscut and plywood pinching.The 53 degree bevel is great, and it's better than the comparable 51 degrees or less that you get with other models. You can never have enough bevel.The multi-function blade wrench is stored on the base, below the handle, and is locked into place by a detent spring. It is hard to grasp and remove with the saw set to full depth, but at least it won't fall out.The two position saw hook is a major plus. Consider it piece of mind when you can hang your saw on a ladder, joist, or even a low pitch rafter without it falling off. You can also protect the cord by climbing with the saw hanging from your tool belt.I think other than the blade wrench storage location, the only other needed improvement would be the depth bracket gauge. The depth bracket is grooved with some of your most common blade depth settings. On one side, you have markings for plywood depths of 1/4”, 1/2”, and 3/4”, and on the other side you have two lumber depths labeled as 1X and 2X.. It's by no means a deal breaker, but more depths in between and outside of those provided would better suit a wider range of materials. Also, the actual cutting depths are 1/4” deeper than what is stated on the depth gauge. In most situations the blade is set to penetrate your material, but it really helps to quickly and accurately adjust to an exact depth setting, where the individual can make allowances for penetration depth based on needs.That's it in a nutshell. I believe the Skil MAG77LT, 7 1/4” worm drive circular saw, is a formidable opponent in the worm drive market. If you like or need power and stability, this saw delivers both. April 24, 2013
