QUADSAW® – USER GUIDELINES
1. Drill Type
The QUADSAW® will work with a drill driver, not hammer or percussion, with a 13mm chuck, battery or corded PROVIDED THAT the drill that has at least a 2000 rpm no load speed. Recommended maximum drill speed should not exceed 2,500 rpm.
If using the QUADSAW® with a battery drill always ensure the battery has sufficient charge. The QUADSAW® needs a good battery charge to perform as designed. Change your battery to a fully charged battery if you feel your QUADSAW® is slower than usual.
3. Board Types
The QUADSAW® will cut through most drywall materials. It will NOT cut through cement-based boards including any type of fiber cement cladding panels. The QUADSAW® will NOT cut wood, lathe, brick or ceramic materials.
DO NOT USE THE QUADSAW® TO CUT SUCH MATERIALS AS IT WILL LIKELY DAMAGE THE QUADSAW® AND INVALIDATE YOUR WARRANTY.
4. Optimal Cutting Method
Do NOT use excessive force to push the QUADSAW® through the drywall. Let the QUADSAW® do the work for you. Apply gentle pressure to ensure that all blades are working their way through the board. By applying gentle pressure throughout the cut you will ensure that there is no or minimal blow out of your drywall when completing your cut.
Apply full speed with the drill, utilising the maximum rpm performance of your drill to ensure a quality and clean cut from the QUADSAW® .
