Another comparison: Dewalt DWS535 vs Skilsaw SPT77WM


Recommended Posts

I will be posting these kinds of topics often, so bear with me. 


For professional construction, which one seems better? 


DWS535: (NOT DWS535T) 


- Known motor power (2.8 horsepower, 2100W) 

- 2-7/16" Deep max cut depth 

- 4800 RPM vs 5300 RPM - more torque 

- Heavier than the Skilsaw 

- Motor looks bigger 

- Two stator windings as opposed to four in the Bosch/Skilsaw 


SPT77WM (Equiv. to Bosch CSW41): 


- Unknown motor power, possibly smaller (2.7 horsepower??) 

- 2-3/8" Depth of cut

- 5300 RPM - Fastest blade speed of any worm drive I've ever seen, but less torque given possibly-smaller motor and same gear ratio (5:1 reduction - I can determine the speeds of most universal motors just by listening to them) 

- Four stator windings as opposed to two in the Dewalt - Bosch/Skilsaw says this motor runs cooler, but I don't know. 


If any of you could add more pros and cons to this, that would be great.
