MEDUSAW 7 IN. WORM DRIVE FOR CONCRETE
Oct 23, 2016
MEDUSAW™ is the first worm drive concrete saw that delivers a complete concrete cutting system with legendary SKILSAW worm drive power and durability. SKILSAW engineered this saw with an integrated wet/dry dust management system to control dust, allowing for cleaner cuts, and GFCI protection. Both features extend the life of the saw and protect the user.
MEDUSAW features a Cut-Ready™ adjustable plunge lock that allows users to quickly and accurately set and make consistent plunge cuts. The saw also has an integrated rolling foot plate with rubber wheels that help users to move it smoothly across hard surfaces and rust resistant brackets and fasteners to protect against corrosion. Finally, the tool includes a retractable front pointer to accurately guide the saw along the cut line and retracts for tight spaces.
“SKILSAW launched its first concrete cutting saw as part of its commitment to professionals and jobsite productivity. With MEDUSAW, we built features into the tool so you don’t need a second person to hold a vacuum or water hose to collect the dust; or a third person to hold a board down onto the surface to make a straight cut.” said Gregg Mangialardi, SKILSAW product manager.
He added, “We are very excited to watch MEDUSAW revolutionize the way workers cut concrete in a way that creates jobsite efficiency and cost savings by combining all of the attachments of aftermarket products into a single, dedicated tool.”
MEDUSAW comes equipped with an onboard multi-function wrench, making it easy for users to change their blades, oil, brushes, water feed attachment and wheels.
MEDUSAW will be available at World of Concrete in January 2017 and through industrial distributors nationwide afterwards and has a suggested retail price of $399 (USD).
