Milwaukee® announces Double Duty Upgrade

Largest accessory overhaul in the company’s history


Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation announces the largest accessory overhaul in the company’s history with the complete transformation of their Metal SAWZALL® Blade line. Aptly named Double Duty Upgrade™ for delivering over 2X more life than our current generation blades, the new blades will be available in both a THIN KERF profile for fast, flexible cuts and a DEMO blade profile, known as The TORCH™, for tough, straight cuts.

“When blades break at the tang and buckle under stress, users have to waste valuable time on the job replacing them to continue the task at hand,” says Dan Wolfgram, Sr. Product Manager for Milwaukee Electric Tool. “As a result of this frustration, Milwaukee has created several new-to-world solutions that strengthen the blade at its weakest points, delivering the longest lasting blade on the market today.”

The Double Duty Upgrade ™ TORCH™ blades feature a tooth form optimized for long life and maximum durability. They also feature a new stamped honeycomb pattern throughout the body of the blade called Grid Iron™ that greatly increases the rigidity of the blade, making it the stiffest metal cutting SAWZALL® blade on the market. These blades are ideal for making tough, straight cuts.

The Double Duty Upgrade ™ THIN KERF blades feature a tooth form that is optimized for long life and speed. Maintaining a short profile and thin body, these blades are ideal for making fast, flexible cuts.

Both of the blade profiles feature a deep stamp design in the tang of the blade, where it connects to the tool, appropriately named Tough Neck ™. Engineered to protect against breakage, Tough Neck™ delivers the strongest SAWZALL® blade tang on the market.

The launch of these new SAWZALL® Blades demonstrates Milwaukee Electric Tool’s continued commitment to delivering innovative accessory solutions to save time and increase productivity on the jobsite.
