The all-new BladeRunner X2 now features a blade guard that is integrated with and supported by the riving knife, minimizing obstructions on the table surface. This means you can rip materials of unlimited width, without running into the blade guard support. As with previous models, the BladeRunner X2 can perform a multitude of cuts including rip cuts, crosscuts, miters and curves. It uses standard T-shank jigsaw blades with tool-free blade changes that take literally seconds to perform. The larger rip fence is now separate from the miter gauge (both are included) for more versatility and stability. The saw sets up in seconds to cut wood, ceramic tile, plastic, mild steel and aluminum. Unlike a jigsaw, the BladeRunner allows you to use both hands to guide the material for maximum control. The dust port lets you connect a vacuum for dust collection. When you're ready to move on to your next job site, just grab the handle in the table top and whisk it away.Features:Cut wood, metal, ceramic tile, aluminum or plastic with one versatile sawIncludes five blades: a general purpose blade for wood, a scrolling blade for wood, a ceramic tile blade, a metal cutting blade and an aluminum cutting bladeWeighs less than 15 lbs-easy to carry anywhereFast, tool-free blade change for nearly instantaneous changeovers between cutting applicationsUses any T-shank jig saw blade measuring 4'' or lessEasy to use-both hands are free to control the workTraditional guard and riving knife system allows unlimited capacity for cross and rip cutsMiter gauge is adjustable for 0° to 60° angled cuts, right or leftOn-board storage for miter gauge and rip fenceSafety switch with key prevents accidental start
