Nicely versatile with the ability to cut a wide variety of materials including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, the DEWALT DW872 14-inch multi-cutter saw has enough capacity to cut everything from 5-inch black pipe to 2-9/16-inch solid bar stock. It sports a powerful 15 amp, 5.3-horsepower motor and is designed to stand up to rugged work on a regular basis.
Power and Performance
Designed to outperform chop saws by 4 times and portable band saws by 8 times within its angle iron of 2-by-1/4-inches, the DW872 maintains a steady blade penetration throughout duration of cut with its 14-inch, 70-tooth carbide tipped blade. The 15 amp, 4 horsepower motor has a 1,300 RPM no-load speed.
The DW872 features a specially designed fence that adapts to 45 degrees, equipping the saw to cut sizable angles efficiently. The guard rapidly retracts so you can view your cut line while still shielding from chips with chip deflector so you to direct excess debris into a single safe, neat area.
The carbide teeth deliver fast, precise, virtually burr-free cuts to reduce the need for preparation grinding, and finished cuts are cool to the touch. The carbide-tipped blade also adds affordability compared to standard abrasive wheels with less cost-per-cut, equating to about 1,200 cuts based on material used.
Comfort and Convenience
The DW872 features a vise that provides an immediate grip on a wide variety of applications, a spindle lock for speedy wheel replacement, a built-in wheel change wrench to lessen the chance of misplacement, and handy brushes for easy tool maintenance on the jobsite. The perpendicular clamping system offers more productive results than the professional standard and the broad, sturdy steel base is designed with 4 pre-drilled holes for bolting and is equipped to weld jigs or stops to itself.
A parallel handle comfortably allows you to place your wrist to lessen exhaustion and a ruggedly crafted metal top handle for easy transport. Other features include a chainless lock down pin so the saw head can remain fastened for easy transport, and a compression spring for consistent motion and increased resilience compared to torsion springs.
