Milwaukee Deep Cut Band Saws
NEW Line Of Milwaukee Deep Cut Corded Band-saws
According to Andrew Plowman,Milwaukee Product Manager, this new saw line has new designs that provide two times the durability than the competition. “ Externally, the Job Site Armor™ Technology is comprised of a proprietary composite material and crush zone barriers to absorb impacts. Internally, an all metal direct drive system provides maximum tool life and requires less servicing than the chain drive alternative. A gear protecting clutch extends gear and motor life by absorbing high impact forces caused by blade lock-ups, and the completely sealed design of the direct drive protects the internal gears from water and debris contamination over time.”
The new Milwaukee saws feature new patent pending motor technology that packs more copper in a smaller amount of space. One thing I learned at the recent Milwaukee media event is that more copper means more power!
This motor technology also allows for a much slimmer motor housing, weighing 14.5 lbs, these saws are 3 lbs lighter than the existing models, feature an LED light and a tool-free locking adjustable shoe that allows the user to quickly adjust from an extended shoe.
This new band saw can cut up to 5” x 5” material in one pass.
The new Band Saws will launch in January of 2012, and is backed by the MILWAUKEE® Heavy-Duty 5-year warranty.
