The C7WDM was built to withstand the tough conditions of a jobsite. Its worm drive gears deliver longer life. The steel levers increase toughness and real world durability.

At 45°, the C7WDM can cut 1-3/4” deep. At 90°, the max cut capacity is 2-3/8”. A three-position rafter hook is incorporated for convenient placement at the jobsite and easy storage. 
The carbon brushes are easily accessible and allow for simple replacements for user friendly maintenance. The included blade wrench stores in the base of the tool for fast blade changes.
