Platinum Tools, a specialist in products for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, has announced the launch of its updated PRO Drywall Saw (Part No. 10711).

“Designed with the professional installer in mind, the PRO drywall saw’s teeth are precision-ground for fast and effortless cutting in both directions, both push and pull,” explains John Phillips, Platinum Tools' product manager. “The blade is an extra-thick 1.8 mm to prevent bending and breaking during use, whether cutting, punching, or scoring.”

With an MSRP of $12.95 and now shipping, the PRO drywall saw with included sheath is billed as an ideal tool for cutting drywall, plywood, plasterboard, wallboard, plastic paneling, and ceiling tile. The company says the saw's heavy-duty handle is designed with a non-slip grip for comfort and safety, a hardened blade tip designed to score or punch with ease, a clog free hardened steel blade, and a one piece handle and blade design.

“Extremely rugged and durable, the PRO drywall saw also has a rust resistant electrophoretic deposition on the blade,” Platinum's Phillips adds. “Ideal for numerous applications, this saw is a must have for the discerning installer and technician.”
