In response to customer demand, the SawStop now offers its cutting-edge safety technology in a new 1.75 HP Professional Cabinet Saw that uses standard 120-volt power.
“For a variety of reasons, many aspiring cabinet saw users do not have access to 220-volt power,” explains Paul Carter, executive vice president of sales and marketing for SawStop. “Our customers want a professional grade cabinet saw. We are excited to deliver the finest 120-volt saw on the market.” SawStop is the world leader in table saw safety. The company’s saws are designed to minimize saw-related injuries and the costs associated with them.
The new 1.75 HP model features the same heavy-duty cast-iron table, steel cabinet, and cast-iron trunnion found on the 3.0 HP Professional Cabinet Saw and weighs over 360 pounds in its lightest configuration. Just like all SawStop models, this new saw is equipped with a safety system that detects when someone accidentally contacts the spinning saw blade, and then stops the blade in milliseconds.
SawStop introduced the 3.0 HP Professional Cabinet Saw in August 2009. A market success, the saw’s many honors include Wood magazine’s 2010 “Top Tool” designation. Wood editors praised many of the saw’s features, including the unique blade-brake safety system, outstanding dust collection, and tool-free, quick-release insert and riving knife.
