Original Press Release:
Electronic Feedback and Die-Cast Gearbox Make the New Ridgid® Orbital Jig Saw One Smooth Cutting Tool
Powerful motor and innovative features raise the bar for jig saws
(Elyria, Ohio) Designed for demanding professional woodworkers and contractors, the new RIDGID® Variable Speed Orbital Jig Saw (Model R3120) is packed with features, such as a die-cast gearbox, electronic feedback and auto-stop brushes, that will set a new jig saw standard for years to come.
The R3120 delivers smooth cutting performance, featuring a durable die-cast gearbox that reduces vibration significantly over comparable models for increased user productivity. Its powerful 6 Amp motor and variable speed dial with electronic feedback (1,000 to 3,000 SPM) means the jig saw will maintain cutting speed through almost any material.
A first-time feature on a jig saw are auto-stop brushes that protect the motor. Unlike normal accessible brushes, which must be inspected for wear and replaced before they can damage the motor, the auto-stop brushes halt motor operation when the brushes are worn, before they can damage the motor, eliminating the need to inspect them.
The saw features five orbital cut settings for maximum versatility when working with different materials, and an adjustable base for making beveled cuts. Tool-less blade change capability ensures that changing blades is a quick and easy process.
A dust port and chip shield enable up to 90 percent of excess material to be disposed of through a vacuum collection system. The saw also features a dust blower, which blows dust away from the cut direction, helping the user maintain view of the cut line.
The R3120 Variable Speed Orbital Jig Saw includes RIDGID's exclusive cord package. This package features a 12-foot rubber power cord, providing extra reach without an extension cord. The rubber cord is more durable than a plastic cord and stays flexible in cold weather. The cord also has a lighted plug, which confirms when the tool is "live," featuring a backlit icon of the tool for easy identification. This feature also reduces confusion on busy jobsites where many tool cords are often plugged into one central power strip. Finally, a Velcro(TM) cord wrap organizes the cord neatly for storage, eliminating knots and tangles.
The R3120 comes with three bi-metal blades, vacuum adaptor, anti-splintering inset, Allen wrench and case.
