New forward-cutting saw from Arbortech

Arbortech’s new AS170 brick and mortar saw features a unique orbital cutting motion with two forward-facing blades that combine to perform both a hammering and a cutting action. This gives the user clear visibility and the ability to accurately cut square and deep. Weighing 9 1/2 pounds, the AS170 saw has a cutting depth of 4 3/4 inches and a cutting width of 1/4 inch. The saw features a powerful, 13-amp motor constructed with a dustresistant, heavy-duty design to ensure long motor life. The AS170 generates very little dust. The unique design of the saw prevents kickback and makes it easy to control. The AS170 saw is available with four different blades, including a general-purpose blade, a plunge blade, a tuckpointing blade and a switch-box blade. The blades feature sharpenable tungsten carbide teeth for longevity. The saw comes with a heavy-duty tool bag, a vacuum attachment and a blade-sharpening disk. ?
