Super Sawcat question

Does anyone remember who made the Super Sawcat? I beleive it was either B&D or DeWalt. They are the same company today but back in the days when SSC's roamed the construction site they were probably separate companies.
Thanks for the replys

Maab asks:

DeWalt was part of the B&D landscape back then, but not in portable power tools. The Super Sawcat was the B&D Professional model, comparable to today's DeWalt (and, in the case of the SSC, better in my not at all humble opinion). I had 2 of them and both have disappeared over the years.

It was one of B&D Professionals great tools, Dewalt still don't make a circular saw that even comes close to the Super Sawcat quality wise IMHO The D384 comes closest I suppose, although they do make a couple comparable to the normal Sawcat, B&D Professional also had a great worm drive saw (3051) that was almost identical to the Skil HD77. I passionately hate DeWalts framing saw (DW378) a crazy design making servicing a royal pain in the ass.

Interesting because the B&D items i've had in the last few years ie cordless screwdriver, toaster oven etc haven't been worth a damn. I'd just as soon turn to Skil for any budget price power tool.
The toaster oven I had the swith that sets bake/toast etc broke and when I opened it it was so flimsily made you wonder how they ever expected it to last.

Nope, the old "professional" stuff was tough. I have a "last issue" B&D 6" ROS that I bought as a "refurbished" unit about five years ago ($79.00!). It's bigger than a Honda Civic and doesn't say no to anything... Dewalt carried it in yellow for a while, but it's been off the shelf for a couple of years now, replaced by....well....nothing I guess.
