Worm Drive Vs Hypoid Circular Saw

Worm Drive Vs Hypoid Circular Saw

The major difference between hypoid saws and wormdrive gears is their power transmission. The wormdrive works like the steering gears on a car while the hypoid resembles the rear gears of a car i.e. bevel gears. They can be used together especially where long precision cuts are required.
Our fastest framer runs with the latest class of 7-1/4-inch wormdrive and hypoid saws.. We tested nine saws in our shop and out on the jobsite: the Bosch 1677MD (in-line), Bosch 1678 (top-handle), Craftsman 2761, DeWalt DW378GK, Makita 5277NB, Milwaukee 6377-6, Ridgid R3210, Skil.
Weight is a key factor with Hypoid (rear handle) saws, and with the extensive use of magnesium, the weight of Makita's new hypoid saw is reduced to a very competitive 13 pounds.. Hypoid gears deliver more power than traditional worm drive gears found on other rear-handle saws.
Worm drive saw vs hypoid vs sidewinder saw (direct drive saw) motor orientation. A worm drive saw has the motor at right angles to the blade and is positioned .
