  • New Saw?

    I noticed this the other day and have yet to see any discussion on it, has this been covered before or is this a new item?

      Skill now has a new model, the MAG 77 of their flagship saw the HD-77. It is of Magnesium construction probably in answer to Ridgid's saw or maybe it came out before Rdgid'd, don't know. Anyway the MAG 77 is supposedly 2 pounds lighter than the HD-77.

        While they put out an aweful lot of cheap junk, Skill is still the "gold standard" on worm drives. Unless Ridgid has a good price incentive, why would you change?

          Skil is the standard form worm drives. Thats why Ridgid used it as a template and then supposedly improved from there. We just got these in our store this week so I haven't had a chance to play with it yet. But I will soon and we'll see if it is better than the skil.
          And the price on the Ridgid($169.00) is right in between the HD-77(159.00) and the Mag77.($179.00)
