Application Specific SAWZALL® Blades Solve Common Frustrations

Application Specific SAWZALL® Blades

MILWAUKEE, WI Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands the new wood-cutting SAWZALL® blade offering with two new Application Specific blades focused on eliminating key user frustrations.  While the recently launched wood-cutting blades appeal to the majority of users by delivering the fastest cuts, most nail durability, and quickest plunge cuts on the market, the new Flush Cut and Rough-In blades fill critical voids in the market by solving problems often encountered in trade-specific applications.

The Flush Cut Sawzall Blade has been engineered to specifically address the unique frustrations encountered during window and door cut-out applications.  When attempting to cut bottom plates from a doorway, traditional blades will bend and break when the tip impacts the floor or the teeth will dull from rubbing against the floor. The Flush Cut blade solves these issues with a unique shape to protect against floor impacts and a Floor Guard design to shield the teeth from floor contact.  Additionally, the Flush Cut blade features a Double Truss design that guides the blade for straighter window cut-outs.

The Rough-In Sawzall Blade has been engineered to specifically address the unique frustrations encountered when cutting through-holes in nail-embedded wood during plumbing and HVAC rough-in work.  It features a low profile for cutting holes as small as 2-1/8″ in diameter and an optimized 7-3/8″ length that allows the blade to cut holes through double top plates.  “Users want more options for creating through-holes,” says Erich Herman, Director of Product Management.  “Traditional blades are a poor option as they will warp and break under the stress of cutting a tight radius.  This new design will easily cut small diameter holes with great control and no concern for nail impacts.”

Both blades also feature the award winning Nail Guard™ and Fang Tip™ designs that were introduced in November 2010.The Nail Guard tooth design keeps nails out of the gullets and protects against tooth fracture.  The Fang Tip design bites into the wood on first contact for faster plunging.

With the launch of the new-to-world SAWZALL® Blade design and this expansion into application specific blades, Milwaukee Electric Tool demonstrates its continued commitment to delivering innovative accessory solutions to save time and increase productivity on the jobsite.
