Application Specific SAWZALL® Blades Solve Common Frustrations

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands their application specific SAWZALL® blade offering with two new blades. The Ductwork Blade and Drywall Access Blade are focused on eliminating key user frustrations by solving problems often encountered in common applications.

The Ductwork SAWZALL® blade has been engineered to specifically address the unique frustrations encountered when installing ductwork take-offs, where the main duct line branches off into subsidiary lines. This application is commonly done with a hammer and screw driver to make an access point, and a variety of directional hand snips to complete various cuts. The new Ductwork Sawzall® blade completely eliminates the need to carry all of these tools, lightening up your tool belt and greatly speeding up the installation process.  Engineered with a Pierce Point tip, the Ductwork Blade plunges into sheet metal with ease and the tapered profile design allows the blade to make both radius and square cuts, accommodating any type of take-off installation. 

The Drywall Access SAWZALL® blade has been engineered to specifically address the frustrations encountered when doing plumbing and electrical service work behind installed drywall. “When plumbers try to access a leak or Electricians are looking for a faulty wire, there is a substantial possibility that they will puncture an existing pipe or wire when using the standard blade lengths available today,” says Dan Wolfgram, Sr. Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.  “The new Drywall Access blade is only 2-1/2” long, optimized to cleanly cut through up to 5/8” drywall but avoid this type of damage.” In addition, the new blade’s unique multi-directional tooth design allows the user to cut in all directions, for maximum finesse in small diameter cutting.

With the expansion of the application specific Sawzall® blade line, Milwaukee Electric Tool demonstrates its continued commitment to delivering innovative accessory solutions to save time and increase productivity on the jobsite.
