Circular saw
Product description
The housing of the circular saw and the grips were made of plastic, the grip containing the switch has a softer and different coloured insert. Other parts of the machine were made of metal. The unintentional press of the switch is prevented by a locking mechanism, the machine can be switched on by two separate motions, and the switch becomes locked when released. The depth and angle of the cut can be adjusted by sinking and turning the base plate. The protecting shields and the splitting wedge move together with the motor and saw, thus their relative position is permanent. Main components: plug with inscription: " YYEAC YXD-02 16A 250V~"+ marks of approval; mains cable with inscriptions: "YUAO YUXIANG H05VV-F 2X0,75mm2"+VDE; bipolar switch with inscription: "FA6-4/2B 4(4)A 250V~ 5E4" + S; sawing disc with inscription: "185MMX20MMX18T" Technical specifications: 230V~; 50Hz; 1200W; 4500rpm; Class II; diameter of the disc:185 mm.
