02 May Menards Introduces New Cordless and Corded Masterforce Brand Circular Saws
Among many recent additions to the Masterforce® tool line from Menards are a couple of 7-1/4” circular saws. The Boost™ model is a 20-Volt, brushless, cordless tool (item 5415.1) that has on-board wrench storage, and electric brake and an LED light that stays on for 10 seconds after the trigger is released, to help illuminate the work area. Boost tools can communicate with Boost batteries for maximum performance. The cordless saw has a shipping weight of 8 lbs. and its heavy-duty aluminum base is engineered to be lightweight yet durable. The company says that the saw’s brushless motor delivers up to ten times longer motor life and up to 50% more power compared to a standard 2-pole motor. There’s a spindle lock for easy blade changes and an integrated rafter hook for easy storage on the job. The saw has 0 to 56-degree bevel adjustments with a positive stop at 45 degrees. Menards lists the tool only at $149 and there are a range of different Amp Hour batteries available.
The other new Masterforce saw is a 15-Amp corded model (item 3281.1, $89) that also has an electric brake. Equipped with a powerful 6200 RPM motor, it delivers both power and speed to easily cut through tough materials. It too comes with on-board tool storage and an LED work light, weighs just over 12 lbs. and has magnesium construction to help reduce weight while still delivering jobsite durability. It has a 1-1/4″ hose adaptor for an easy connection to a vacuum hose, a spindle lock, the same bevel capacities and the rafter hook.
