Milwaukee expands Sawzall offering with Ductwork and Drywall Access blades
By Alyssa Dalton
April 5, 2013 – Milwaukee Electric Tool is now offering two new application-specific Sawzall blades: the Ductwork blade and Drywall Access blade. The Ductwork Sawzall blade has been engineered to address the unique frustrations encountered when installing ductwork take-offs, where the main duct line branches off into subsidiary lines. Milwaukee claims the new blade eliminates the need of a hammer and screwdriver, lightening up the tool belt and speeding up the installation process. Engineered with a Pierce Point tip, the Ductwork blade makes radius and square cuts to accommodate various take-off installations. The 2-1/2-in long Drywall Access Sawzall blade is optimized to cut through up to 5/8-in drywall, boasting a unique multi-directional tooth design to allow for cuts in all directions. According to Milwaukee, the blade minimizes the risk of puncturing an existing pipe or wire when electricians are looking for a faulty wire behind installed drywall.
