Features & Benefits

40% less vibration

The unique anti-vibration system reduces machine vibration by 40%. Its full power is directed into its saw blade and does not go into the machine or the user's arms. Everybody benefits from noticeably lower fatigue when working, a longer service life of the reciprocating saw and more efficient sawing progress.

For a longer saw-blade life

To be able to use the saw blade for as long as possible, the saw table can be locked in different positions and the different loads on the saw blade thereby compensated for.

Blades for a wide variety of materials

Available blades for cutting wood, metal, iron, stainless steel, insulation, fiber cement and plasterboard panels.
