Rockwell's new Sonicrafter® F30 whips competitors in
speed, oscillating angle and ability to tackle tough jobs without bogging down.
The redesigned oscillating tool is leaner, more tapered and at 3.5 amps, packs
twice the speed of its nearest competitor. Evolution in oscillating tools is
well underway and Rockwell® is in the forefront with product innovation.
New features and performance characteristics shatter other manufacturers' tools
and these changes are on the heels of previous intros of true Universal Fit and
Hyperlock. Universal Fit means that Rockwell's new accessories not only
fit the company's tools, but every other major competitors' brand as well
without sacrificing fit or performance.
Rockwell's Hyperlock eliminates blade slippage. This feature applies one
metric ton of force against the accessory so there's no fear of blade slippage
in the midst of a cut. Most oscillating tools' oscillating angle is 3.2°.
The Sonicrafter F30's oscillating angle is 4°; the greatest angle of any
oscillating tool in the industry next to the Sonicrafter F50, which is 5°.
Typically, an increase in the oscillation angle causes more movement and
unwanted vibration. Rockwell® engineers employed a counterweight called
Vibrafree in the tool to offset this movement, providing a smoother, more
efficient cut. TheF30 works harder too. In fact, it can absorb 30 lbs. of force
before stalling out, while competitors drop out at 20.5 lbs. or less.
The F30 can clip nail heads all day, but now with the faster speed and
greater oscillating angle, it's capable of doing tasks typically reserved for
other power tools.Cross-cut and rip wood, sand tight spots such as corners with
professional results, cut through sheetrock like its butter, and make perfect
cutouts for light fixtures, junction boxes, wall outlets, recessed medicine
cabinets and more during remodeling projects. Oscillating tools can handle a
myriad of jobs and projects around the house and shop to save time, energy and
money. However, a tool is only as good as the accessory doing the work. Several
innovative accessories, plus a new line of Extended Life accessories are now
available from Rockwell. Rockwell's Extended Life accessories offer bi-metal
teeth for added strength and durability in rigorous applications.
The Rockwell Sonicrafter F30 is variable-speed with 3X faster cutting speed
than Rockwell's model RK5121K. It has a 30 lb. maximum cutting load and
features constant speed control, which electronically maintains speed-of-cut
under load. The 3.5 amp tool with oscillating angle of 4° oscillates at
11,000 to 20,000 oscillations per minute. The 2.9 lb. tool also features
Universal Fit and Hyperlock. Sonicrafter F30 comes with 32 Universal Fit
accessories including (3) 1-1/8" end-cut blades (metal, precision,
standard), (1) rigid scraper blade, (1) sanding pad, (26) sanding sheets, plus
hard case. The compact case features separate bulk storage areas for quick and
easy access to the tool and accessories. Its rigid, durable construction
provides ease of stacking and transport.
The new Rockwell Sonicrafter F30 (RK5131K, $119), and other models including
Sonicrafter F50 (RK5141K, $139), Sonicrafter (RK5121K, $79), 20V Cordless
