The CB18DBL W4 joins the ranks of the new Hitachi 18v Li-ion Cordless & Brushless range. Its a BandSaw which can make cuts of up to 83mm and has a blade speed of 1.2 - 3.2 M/S.
Having a brushless motor makes the CB18DBL W4 one of the most ligthweight and compact 18v BandSaws around. The new and improved motor doesn't have any carbon brushes in it, so energy from the battery is not wasted on generating unwanted heat or friction. Because of this we get slightly more power out of our batteries, and also a vast increase in runtime and overal liftime of the battery.
It is capable of cutting max. 83mm workpieces with a 900mm blade and 108mm saw wheels. The handle is positioned near the center of gravity of the tool body and the weight distribution is well-balanced, with the battery positioned on one side of the tool body and the motor on the opposite side.
Dual mode settings: Standard Mode or AUTO Mode is selectable depending on the application.
Standard Mode: The blade speed can be set freely from 80m/min to 195m/min.
AUTO Mode: Depending on the workload, the blade speed is automatically switched between 120m/min and 195m/mi
As its part of Hitachi's 18v Li-ion cordless it is cross compatible with every Hitachi li-ion battery, from 1.5Ah - 5.0Ah.
