Power saws are versatile and efficient cutting tools that can handle a wide range of materials, from wood to metal to masonry. They are powered by electricity or battery and come in various types, sizes, and models. Whether you are a DIY enthusiast or a professional contractor, having a good power saw in your toolkit can save you time, effort, and money while providing precision and accuracy in your work.

What are Power Saws?

Power saws are cutting tools that use a motor to drive a blade or disc to cut through materials. They are designed to provide more power and speed than traditional hand saws and can handle a wide range of materials and thicknesses. There are different types of power saws, each designed for specific tasks and applications.

Types of Power Saws

At Tiger Supplies, you will find a wide range of Power Saws from leading brands, including:

  • Circular Saws

Circular saws use a circular blade to cut through wood, metal, or plastic. They are versatile and can be used for crosscuts, rip cuts, bevel cuts, and plunge cuts. Circular saws come in corded and cordless models and can be used with different blade sizes and types.

  • Jigsaws

Jigsaws use a reciprocating blade to cut through wood, metal, or plastic. They are designed for curved and intricate cuts and can be used for plunge cuts and bevel cuts. 

  • Reciprocating Saws

Reciprocating saws also use a reciprocating blade to cut through wood, metal, or masonry. They are designed for demolition and rough cuts and can be used for cutting pipes, nails, and branches. 

We recommend the Makita DSS611Z Circular Saw , which has been developed as a cost-competitive sister tool of Model DSS610. This power saw features the same lightweight design, portability and high performance as DSS610. It features a double safety trigger, high comfort grips and a removable dust nozzle.

Another great option is the Black & Decker CS1250L Circular Saw, which offers class-leading performance and value. With easy-to-set integral depth of cut adjustment, the 190mm blade allows for a 66mm depth of cut. Its rise and fall depth setting function provides optimum cutting performance. In addition, this model features a safety lock-off to prevent unintentional starting, and it is fitted with dust extraction ports for a clean and tidy workplace.

Characteristics of Power Saws

Here are some of the most important characteristics to consider when choosing a power saw:

  • Power and Speed

Power saws are powered by electric motors or batteries that determine their power and speed. The power is measured in amps or horsepower, while the speed is measured in rotations per minute (RPM). The higher the power and speed, the faster and smoother the saw will cut.

  • Blade Size and Type

The blade size and type determine the cutting capacity and versatility of the saw. Circular saws and table saws use different blade sizes and types, while jigsaws and reciprocating saws use blades with various teeth and shapes for different materials and cuts.

  • Depth of Cut

The depth of cut is the maximum thickness of the material that the saw can cut. It depends on the blade size and the saw's design, and it affects the saw's versatility and efficiency.

  • Bevel Capacity

The bevel capacity is the maximum angle at which the saw blade can tilt for bevel cuts. It determines the saw's ability to make angled cuts and bevel cuts and affects the saw's accuracy and precision.

  • Dust Collection System

The dust collection system is the mechanism that collects and removes the sawdust and debris generated by the saw. It is essential for maintaining a clean and safe workspace and reducing the risk of respiratory problems and accidents.
