DeWalt announced the launch of its new 14-inch Abrasive Chop Saw (model D28710), which has been designed to offer contractors power, durability, capacity, ease of use and portability. The D28710 is ideal for a variety of end users including steel stud framers, mechanical contractors and metal fabricators who require a high-performing, durable saw at a great value. The tool addresses common concerns contractors have including durability and power, cut capacity and weight. A 15 Amp, 4 HP motor provides power and overload protection, so you can cut through tough materials like cast iron pipe, angle iron, threaded rod, conduit and square tubing. Contributing to the tool’s durability is a stamped base and bracket.
The D28710 14-inch Abrasive Chop Saw offers contractors the ability to cut 5-inch round black pipe, 4-3/4″ square tubing, 4-inch by 7 5/8-inch rectangular steel stud bundles and 5-3/8″ angle iron. To allow for jobsite portability, the D28710 weighs only 36.5 pounds, which is lighter than many competitive units on the market. Additionally, the tool has an integrated carry handle, which provides balance and comfort for transporting the saw from jobsite to jobsite. The horizontal “D” handle also offers contractors comfort and control when using the product.
For ease of use, the new 14-inch Abrasive Chop Saw includes a “quicklock” vise for material clamping and releasing, on-board wrench storage, and an adjustable spark deflector. The D28710 14″ Abrasive Chop Saw is now available at independent construction distributors. The product will retail for around $179, and it comes standard with a 3-year limited warranty, 1-year service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
