kanxrus Posted June 3, 2011 Report Share Posted June 3, 2011 New DEWALTÂ® 5-in-1 Hacksaw Provides an Innovative Saw Solution for Contractors. TOWSON, Md. (June 2, 2011) â€“ DEWALT announced today the introduction of its 5-in-1 Hacksaw (DWHT20547). The saw provides general contractors, electricians, plumbers and metal fabricators five saws in one tool, helping to eliminate the need for multiple handsaws for a variety of jobsite applications. â€œOur new aluminum die-cast hacksaw offers professionals the functionality, convenience and comfort of five different saws in one,â€ said Tuck Viyakornvilas, product manager. â€œAfter talking to contractors on jobsites across the country, we realized there was a demand for a versatile and durable hacksaw that eliminates the need for multiple saws and continues the tradition of tough, workhorse solutions that DEWALT tools provide.â€ Meeting the demands of real-life conditions, the 5-in-1 hacksaw is designed to perform five of the most common tasks found on the jobsite. The standard high-tension application acts as a typical 90 degree hacksaw, securely holds the blade up to 330 lbs. and is ideal for cutting PVC and metal piping. For 45 degree flush cuts, the contractor can simply remove the blade, flip the saw over and place the blade on the opposite side of the frame, making a 45 degree angle to the saw handle. The contractor can then remove the blade and the rubber over-molded die-cast nosepiece and insert the blade back in the main frame, transforming the tool into a low-profile hacksaw for cutting in tight or confined spaces. For hard to reach applications on the jobsite, todayâ€™s professional can also convert the saw into a long reach hacksaw. The contractor can remove the hacksaw blade, loosen the blade storage knob on the top of the saw, remove the reciprocating saw blade from the storage compartment and insert and tighten the reciprocating saw blade or the hacksaw blade in the front of the saw for long reach. Finally, the saw can be changed into a pistol-grip jab saw for drywall applications. Professionals can simply insert the reciprocating saw blade into the bi-material nosepiece and tighten. Complete with a limited lifetime warranty, the 5-in-1 Hacksaw will be available through independent distributors and two-step distribution beginning in July 2011, and it is expected to retail for approximately $24.97. The new saw comes equipped with one hacksaw blade and one reciprocating saw blade.
