Lightweight saw delivers power and comfort to the professional
TOWSON, MD (April 13, 2010) – PORTER-CABLE® introduces its new heavy-duty 15 Amp Circular Saw (PC15TCSMK) designed with quality features that users demand. The new lightweight circular saw (9.5 lbs) supplies users with power, accuracy, and control at a good value.
Based on feedback directly from the end user, the PC15TCSMK was developed with improved weight distribution and balance for a lighter, more comfortable grip. Other ergonomic enhancements include an angled auxiliary handle that gives users the ability to naturally and comfortably hold the saw without impeding the line of sight. The outside mounted depth of cut lever is easily accessible, and a smooth 0-55 degree bevel capacity offers stops at common 22.5 and 45 degrees with change increments between one degree. These attributes, combined with a soft grip handle and optimized trigger force, help reduce user fatigue and increase jobsite productivity.
The powerful new circular saw also features a 15 amp motor with 5,600 RPM to muscle through tough applications on the worksite. An optimal line of sight, complemented by a blower that clears dust away from the cut-line, enhances visibility for accurate cutting from any angle. A cast magnesium shoe provides added accuracy at a lighter weight, while the 10-foot high-grade cord offers sufficient length to make cuts in one uninterrupted motion on longer material.
"The new PORTER-CABLE 15 amp Circular Saw offers the best combination of features and ergonomics on the market, all at an excellent value," said Rachel Lombardo, Group Product Manager, Corded at PORTER-CABLE. "This tool aligns perfectly with what our users are asking for: a lightweight and balanced saw with greater ease of use."
The PC15TCSMK includes a 24-tooth carbide thin-kerf framers blade, wrench, rip fence, and kit box. The PORTER-CABLE heavy-duty 15 Amp Circular Saw will be available in May 2010 and carries a suggested retail price of $99.99.
