Skilsaw Table Saw Video Review SPT99-12

When Skilsaw delivered their heavy-duty table saw to our shop, I wondered just how much of a difference moving from the 70-series to the 99-series motor would really make. Skilsaw’s original worm drive table saw is lightweight and reasonably powerful. So does the heavy-duty Skilsaw table saw offer enough extra muscle and features to make the upgrade?

That’s exactly what we settled in to find out. Check out the video – or head over to our written review if you like reading more than video. While you’re at it, go ahead and see how things shaped up in our jobsite table saw shootout that included Sawstop and the Bosch Reaxx!

How does it compare to the Bosch 4100-10? Seems the skilsaw is more powerful, but they can both make the cuts I need so other factors like accuracy and durability are more important.


what’s the difference between the SPT99-11 and SPT99-12. All I can see is the blade. The SPT99-12 has the Diablo 32t blade whereas the SPT99-11 has the Skil 24t blade. Is this really the only difference?
Also, doesn’t the worm drive require more maintenance that a regular drive?

I bought one of these based on this review. I have a 10 year old Makita which is a great saw but wanted a rack fence and an extension table.

I also have received both wormdrive table saws to review and I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said. One point that you did not touch on, that I had a issue with was the riving knife. For the life of me, I could not get it to stay put, without getting some mechanical help to lock it in place.


Wow I got this on my wish list, looks like Skilsaw put together a great feature rich jobsite tablesaw for everyone.
