- Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduces innovative new wood cutting SAWZALL® Blades, in both standard and The AxTM profiles, to deliver the fastest speed of cut, greatest durability against nail impacts, and the quickest plunge cut ofany blade on the market. 

 

"Until now, users have been forced to choose between wood cutting blades that deliver fast cuts, but sacrifice durability, and very durable blades that cut relatively slowly," says Erich Herman, Director of Product Management. "As a result of this frustration, Milwaukee is excited to offer this new-to-world solution that delivers both the fastest speed of cut and the most durable teeth without trade-off."

 

To address speed, Milwaukee has researched and optimized multiple design variables through a proprietary design process.  The most notable change has been the shift from a 6 TPI (teeth per inch) pattern to a faster, more aggressive 5 TPI pattern.  To increase tooth durability, Milwaukee has developed the patent-pending Nail GuardTM tooth design to prevent nails from fracturing the blade's teeth upon impact.  The cutting edge of the new tooth form remains engaged with the nail, rather than allowing nails to drop into the gullets and cause teeth-fracturing impacts.  The combined result is a blade that is tougher and cuts two times faster. 

 

Finally, Milwaukee has created a pair of unique, fang-like teeth and an extra large gullet to deliver the fastest plunge cut available in the industry. While ordinary designs bounce or skate along the work piece surface, this Fang TipTM design bites into the wood on first contact to make the cut virtually effortless.

 

The launch of these new SAWZALL® Blades demonstrates Milwaukee Electric Tool's continued commitment to delivering innovative accessory solutions to save time and increase productivity on the jobsite.
