The handheld saw features two forward-facing blades that move simultaneously in an elliptical motion, instead of the spinning circular blade that is at the business end of a traditional saw. The AS170 offers levels of accuracy and control that are unique for a masonry power tool. In fact, it’s the only power tool that can precisely cut deep, square corners, allowing contractors to remove single bricks with surgical precision without damaging the surrounding wall. In contrast, the AS170 performs a hammering and cutting action that lets it glide into brick or mortar cleanly and deeply, with precise stops and starts that make square cuts possible. The saw can cut directly into flush walls without stitch drilling, and it is the only small handheld saw that goes as deep as 120 mm when outfitted with the right blade.
