Tough conditions call for tough tools and the Panasonic EY4550X 18V Lithium-ion cordless jigsaw is a cut above the rest.
The EY4550X jigsaw is a body only unit, no batteries of charger supplied, making it the ideal way to build up an existing Panasonic 18V kit or create one to your own requirements.
The EY4550X jigsaw has a low centre of gravity due to the low housing design and 177mm overall height. The Counter Balance Mechanism greatly reduces vibration providing stable cutting of a wide variety of different materials.
It is equipped with a 4-stage pendulum action, variable speed for high speed precision cutting up to 20m particle board, 20mm thick, keyless blade change mechanism, rip fence for accurate cutting and dust blow function for a clear cutting line.
It features an LED job light for use in low visibility applications, a lightweight, compact, well balanced, ergonomic design and soft grip handle making it easy to operate for extended periods without fatigue and a temperature indicator, flashing when the battery temperature is too high, another indicator shows low battery.
Jobsites make tough demands on Power Tools. Unexpected water contact or exposure to dust can cause a malfunction of the tool leading to trouble and delays. Panasonic have developed the Tough Tool IP range for exceptional resistance to water and dust. Tough Tool IP is a reassuring presence in the most difficult conditions.
Leading Battery Technology, Panasonic incorporates some advanced technologies to ensure longer life and battery performance for their batteries.
Panasonic Solid Solution Technology improves safety and provides exceptional reliability and a high output that is unique to cobalt technology. Individual Monitoring of Cells prevents both overcharging and over-discharging. Over-Discharging Prevention uses a sensor to detect low voltage levels, this system cuts power to the motor when a minimal level is reached and a warning lamp flashes on the tools control panel. Battery Overheat Protection System features a sensor that reduces the likelihood of any burnout, cutting power to the motor when a limit is reached.
The IP standard this Panasonic range carries is awarded by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The IP standards test is designed to gauge the level of protection each product offers against dust and water in the toughest conditions.
