West Chester, PA, August 31, 2004 - Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, announces the availability of its new PSE1200 reciprocating saw.
The PSE1200 offers several features that increase its versatility. The non-slip rubber coated handle can be rotated through four positions without the use of a tool.

The PSE1200 is ideal for rough separating and sawing of wood, plastics, metal pipes and foam mortar in demolition or new construction.
