PORTER-CABLE Reciprocating and Orbital Reciprocating Saws  PC75TRS and PC85TRSOK TigerSaw

PORTER-CABLE announces the launch of two new reciprocating saws – a 7.5 AMP non-orbital model (PC75TRS) and an 8.5 AMP orbital unit (PC85TRSOK TigerSaw™). The two saws offer users the speed of cut they require for many applications, including wood cutting, metal cutting, masonry cutting, demolition, fire and rescue, plunge cuts, and more.

Non-Orbital Model – PC75TRS

The PC75TRS is equipped with a 7.5 AMP motor and 1 1/8” stroke that delivers 3,200 SPM for tough applications on the job-site.  A tooled shoe adjustment provides easy depth modification and a twist lock blade clamp allows for a fast and effortless blade change.

The PC75TRS also offers contractors ergonomic benefits, including an over molded handle for comfort and an over molded clam-shell boot for a soft grip and easy control. Weighing 7.2-lbs., the saw features a handy two-finger variable speed trigger and 6-foot durable PVC cord.

Orbital Model PC85TRSOK TigerSaw

The PC85TRSOK TigerSaw features an efficient crank arm mechanism to obtain a compact footprint and robust design. With an 8.5 AMP motor and 1 1/8” stroke that delivers 3,200 SPM and an orbital dial selector, the PC85TRSOK TigerSaw is intended for aggressive cutting applications. The orbital setting helps users cut in demolition applications where final cut quality is not a concern.

The orbital unit features a tool-free shoe adjustment and twist lock blade clamp for fast and easy blade changes. For comfort and durability, the PC85TRSOK TigerSaw includes an moldered handle and an over-molded clams hell boot for a soft grip and easy control.  Additionally, the 7.3-lbs. reciprocating saw features an efficient two-finger variable speed trigger and 6-foot rubber cord that provides durability and flexibility in cold weather conditions.

PORTER-CABLE Reciprocating and Orbital Reciprocating Saws

The PC75TRS and PC85TRSOK TigerSaw units will be available in February 2011 at Lowe’s, independent distributors and Amazon.com.

The PC75TRS is expected to retail for approximately $59.97, and the PC85TRSOK TigerSaw will come with a kit box and is expected to retail for approximately $79.97. The reciprocating saws will come with a three-year limited warranty, one-year service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
