That is an inviting price but, when I see these sales I'm always hitting the manufacture up for the latest tool model availability info. On the Skilsaw website all I saw was the SPT70WM-22 10 1/4" model listed. I didn't see this sale (SPT70WM-01) model listed. Hmmm... wondering if this specific model was discontinued and if so, why?

just read elsewhere its about the blade, take a look
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

The 01 version has a Skilsaw brand blade. The 22 version has a Diablo brand blade.

Thanks @duburban

ahhh, and a twist lock vs prong

Looks like the SPT70WM-22 10-1/4" Magnesium Sawsquatch Worm Drive Saw has two available options.

SPT70WM-72: The SPT70WM-22 saw with twist Lock cord connector & 40T Diablo blade
SPT70WM-01: The SPT70WM-22 saw with 40T Skilsaw blade (sans Twist Lock)

(just had to break it down  [big grin])
