We use a Skil worm drive with Freud blades. I can’t remember the number of the blade but it never bogs down even in 1 1/2 ” Alder or Oak. I think the problem is your blades. The saw should cut the ply like butter. I had ply blade cut a crooked line in a sheet of plywood one time. When I took it out it looked like a potato chip. I’ve never used a plywood blade since. If you are worried about tear out use masking tape and for sure use a straight edge.
