MT. PROSPECT, Ill. – May 21, 2014

Advanced DIYers and pro-users asked for a multi-saw with more power, faster cutting speed and improved durability. And Dremel® has answered the call with the introduction of the new Dremel Ultra-Saw™. With a powerful 7.5 amp motor, 4-inch abrasive wheels, longer lasting drivetrain and metal guards, the Ultra-Saw takes on difficult cuts with precision and ease through tough materials like metal, tile, plastic, masonry and wood. Beyond its impressive power, advanced DIYers and pros will also appreciate its compact size and clear line-of-sight for truly clean, efficient cutting.

The 3-in-1 tool goes beyond the expected cutting functions with surface preparation applications including rust, paint and thinset removal. Plus, it still does what advanced DIYers and pro users want from their multi-saw, surfacing, cutting — straight and plunge — and flush cutting with incredible efficiency and clear line-of-sight.

What's more, the brand is celebrating dads who, like the tool, go beyond the expected. Now through June 15, 2014, customers can nominate deserving dads in the Dremel Ultra Dad Contest for a chance to win a grand prize of $5,000 and a Dremel Ultra-Saw to help makeover dad's work space.

"We had the remodeling professional and advanced DIYer in mind when we designed the Dremel Ultra-Saw," said Ed Pchola, product director for Dremel. "Rather than a number of tools, Dremel users wanted one tool to help them with complex projects. As a result, we combined all the applications of the popular Dremel Saw-Max™ with a number of new features and the result is a dynamic, new multi-saw that goes beyond the expected."

Dremel Ultra-Saw Product Features:

  • UltraSaw 3-in-1 functionality goes beyond the expected:
  1. Cutting: Multiple cutting wheel options ensure ultra-versatility for cutting wood, tile, laminate flooring, PVC and plastic.
  2. Flush cutting: A dome-shaped wheel and carbide abrasive facilitate efficient flush cuts in doorjambs and baseboards.
  3. Surface prep: Specially designed surface prep wheels remove paint, rust and thinset from wood, metal and concrete/brick.
  • Increased power and performance with 7.5 amp motor and 4-inch abrasive wheels
  • Added durability due to metal foot and guard, which also improves stability and control during difficult applications and lengthy cuts, and improved drivetrain that lasts 3x longer than the Saw-Max
  • Adjustable depth for cutting a variety of material thicknesses
  • Auxiliary handle for additional control and comfort during surface prep applications
  • Onboard dust extraction port to maintain a clean workplace
  • Lock-on button for comfort during extended use
  • Ultra-Saw system includes seven cutting blade variations, two surface prep blade options, auxiliary handle and storage bag
