How Much Power does a Circular Saw or Skilsaw use
Circular Saw or Skilsaw: 932 Watts
- A circular saw, or Skilsaw uses a powerful electric motor to spin a circular blade.
- Uses a variable speed motor and trigger, so it uses a variable amount of power, up to about 932 watts. There is a note on the side of the saw that it produces a maximum of 2.4 hp. I can't see that happening.
- Watts: 932
- Kilowatts: 0.932 Kw.
- cost per minute: 19 hundredths of one cent (0.19 ¢)
- cost per hour: 11.2¢
- cost per day: 89¢
- cost per month: $17.01
Power use of these items was actually tested. Individual items will vary, but these are the actual measurements.
