Pittsburgh, PA – FEIN Power Tools, Inc. announced three redesigned Slugger saw models… FEIN Will feature two redesigned Slugger metal cutting hand saws in the 7-1/4” and 9” blade sizes along with an upgraded 14” Slugger metal chop saw. All three are designed to perform best while using Slugger metal saw blades that provide significantly longer life than disposable composition blades. These versatile saws are high quality power tools, well suited for work in the shop, on the jobsite or anywhere power is available.
The new 7-1/4" saw has a powerful, double insulated 1400W, 120V, 12A, 3800RPM soft start motor for providing continuous power. Its electric brake is activated when the trigger is released eliminating blade free-spin and the specially designed blade cover provides integrated chip and spark collection. An internally powered laser guide aides cutting accuracy and eliminates the need to replace batteries. Unit weighs 15lb (6.8kg) with a vibration rating of 7.20m/s2.
The 9" redesigned metal saw has a 1800W, 120V, 15A, 2300RPM motor with a worm gear drive. It weighs just 21 lb (9.5kg) with a 7.20m/s2 vibration rating and can be used for plunge cuts. It shares all the other same features of the 7-1/4" model saw with an addition of an on-board work light.
The upgraded 14" Slugger metal chop saw is a high-performance portable unit having a clamping saw table with a table mounted vise for safety and fast, accurate cuts no matter what shape metal is being used. Its 1800W, 15A motor delivers 1300 no-load RPMs and weighs 54lb (25kg). It features a double trigger safety start and a spring loaded split guard shield, electric brake to eliminate free spinning of the blade and an integrated chip collection tray. The unit also provides a clear view of the work being performed.
These saws provide several advantages over other competitors. Slugger saws leave a workable edge when cutting steel plate, angle, pipe and square or round tube while making straight or bevel cuts up to 45 degrees. The chop saw can also easily handle round and square stock plus threaded rod with ease.
FEIN recommends that all these metal saws be used with Slugger metal cutting saw blades that are designed for fast and accurate cuts. The blades create a cooler cut surface because the heat is transferred to the cut chips. The Slugger blades are also more accurate and maintain a constant diameter throughout the cut.
