Skil Power Tools Introduces LASERX2 Circular Saw

The 2-beam laser ensures most accurate cutting saw on the market

Mt. Prospect, Ill. -As the inventor of the SKILSAW in 1924, Skil Power Tools is proud to introduce the latest circular saw to the market with increased features including the LASERX2 two-beam laser system. Users will appreciate the two-beam laser system on the new 5755 circular saw, as it helps determine the cut line for accurate cutting every time.

The LASERX2 system on this new SKILSAW identifies for the user exactly what portion of the material will be removed, taking the guess work out of cutting. While the old adage "measure twice, cut once" still applies, the new system helps reduce the possibility of an imperfect cut. The two beams provide the perfect guidance system for any novice, or expert, using this saw.

The 13amp motor makes it one of the most powerful saws on the market and provides the necessary strength for cross cutting and ripping in all wood types. The 7-1/4-inch blade provides the cutting capacity necessary for most cutting projects.

"As the inventor of the circular saw, Skil takes its commitment to this product very seriously," said Gregg Mangialardi, group product manager at Skil Power Tools. "We are constantly looking for new ways to innovate and provide useful features on our tools. We anticipate the new LASERX2 system will be a feature that our users appreciate each time them pick up the saw."

In addition to the excellent cutting mechanisms provided on this tool with the LASERX2 system, the new 5755 circular saw also boasts many valuable features. The anti-snag lower guard, a professional-grade feature, reduces hang-ups in the materials when making narrow cut-offs. The spindle lock ensures blade changes are a breeze, while the wrench storage on the saw provides convenient accessibility. A rear-depth adjustment helps the user quickly identify the depth of cut, and the safety lock on the trigger prevents accidental starts. Finally, the ergonomic Grip Right(TM) guide handle provides ergonomic comfort, while the soft grip on the switch handle offers added control.

The powerful 2.5HP motor provides enough power for most applications and its ball bearing construction ensures a long life. The tool comes with a carrying case, 18-tooth carbide blade and wrench. The manufacturer's suggested price is $79.99. It will be available in July at home improvement centers nationwide.
