PORTER-CABLE® Expands Its Corded Oscillating Multi-Tool Line With New 3.0 Amp Model

 TOWSON, Md. (August 14, 2012) PORTER-CABLE announces the launch of its new, corded oscillating multi-tool kit (PCE605K), which includes a 3.0 amp motor for power and durability on the jobsite. This model delivers the performance needed for tough applications, including cutting, sanding, scraping and grinding.

“The new oscillating tool is right in line with Porter Cable’s commitment to our end users” said Mike Peiffer, associate product manager, PORTER-CABLE. “It gives them our Tool-Free System blade change technology, the power of a 3.0 amp motor and control over that power with a new depth and cutting guide.”  

In addition to a 3.0 amp motor, the PCE605K multi-tool delivers up to 10,000-22,000 oscillations per minute (OPM), which enables users to quickly complete different applications in a variety of materials. The new tool features a depth/cutting guide that provides stability when making long cuts as well as control for making plunge cuts.  For versatility, the PCE605K multi-tool includes a redesigned three-position over mold to provide comfort when operating the tool whether a user prefers to hold the tool in the front, middle or back. The PCE605K also features a 10-foot cord.

Like its predecessor (PC250MTK), the PCE605K multi-tool features a Tool-Free System blade change allowing professionals to quickly and efficiently change out or adjust the position of the accessory depending on the application. The PCE605K multi-tool will be available through Lowe’s and independent distributors in September 2012. The unit will retail for approximately $129.00 and will come with 31 accessories including the depth/cutting guide. The PCE605K multi-tool will come with a three-year limited warranty, one-year service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
