It’s designed purely for cutting through wood (the blade doesn’t spin fast enough for other materials), which makes it ideally suited to DIYers and carpenters. It has a 15amp motor that spins the 24-tooth carbide blade at 5,300RPM (no-load). The maximum depth cut is 2.375-inch and it has a 51º bevel with a positive stop at 45º. All of these stats read similar to the premium circular saws on this list, so it shows that the SKIL 5280-01 is no slouch.
