Towson, Md.-based Porter-Cable launched its new 15 AMP Chop Saw (PC14CTSD) that has been designed to offer contractors performance, ergonomics, ease of use, and durability.
This chop saw is well-suited for mechanical contractors, electrical contractors, metal fabricators, fence builders, and many other tradesmen, according to the manufacturer. The PC14CTSD is capable of handling a number of metal cutting applications on professional jobsites.
“Our new Chop Saw is the perfect choice for value-driven contractors who are looking for professional-grade jobsite solutions at a reasonable price,” said Wil Granger, group product manager, Porter-Cable.
A 15-AMP, high torque motor delivers 3,800 RPM, which enables the new chop saw to cut through tough materials, including cast iron pipe, angle iron, threaded rod, conduit, square tubing, and more.
To address one of the most frequent user frustrations associated with chop saws – ergonomics – the PC14CTSD is equipped with a “D” handle design for comfort and control when making cuts.
