Efficient Cutter with Three-Way Dust Management System
The EY4542 features a multipurpose metal cutter that rotates at a speed of 3,600 rpm and uses a 5-3/8 C-6 tungsten steel carbide-tipped blade with 30 teeth. For a much quicker cut, the blade uses a chipping action rather than an abrasive action, and the ultra-thin 1/16-inch blade kerf cuts clean with no need for de-burring after cutting.
What's more, the EY4542 offers the versatility you need to handle a range of materials. Just change from the metal-cutting blade to a wood- or plastic-cutting blade to utilize the EY4542's multipurpose capability. A handy spindle lock button makes for easy blade replacement.
Durable, Safe, and Accurate
Built for long life, the EY4542 features an adjustable base plate that delivers a cutting depth from 1/8 inch to 1-3/16 inches--this minimizes blade wear and maximizes cutting efficiency. And for safety and accuracy, the cutting edge is easily visible through the clear window on the blade guard. What's more, the three-way dust control system and fully enclosed blade helps to reduce metal chip splash and sawdust while you work.
Additionally, the EY4542 offers a built-in LED that illuminates your work area and an electric brake to stop blade rotation once the trigger is released.
Ergonomically Designed for Comfort and Control
With a length of just 13 inches, the EY4542 is compact in size and weighs only 5.7 pounds. Easy to hold, it features a contoured rubber grip that minimizes fatigue and provides control.
Long-Lasting Battery System
Panasonic's 14-volt lithium-ion battery outperforms traditional 12-volt nickel cadmium batteries by as much as 600 percent. Effective battery power means no more tangled extension cords that can limit your movement or cause a tripping hazard. That's why both these Panasonic tools are powered by the highest battery capacity on the market, 3.1 Ah Cobalt Lithium-Ion battery packs that can be fully charged in just 60 minutes.
These battery packs deliver high output with low heat generation, resulting in twice the lifetime total performance of current Ni-Cd battery packs, which you might see used with similar drills. In addition, these tools utilize Panasonic's unique GuardION system. Panasonic's unique GuardION system monitors each battery cell during battery charging and during tool use to prevent over-discharging and overheating of your battery packs, ensuring long battery life so that your tools are ready to go when you reach for them
Panasonic will replace defective parts on tools for two years and batteries for one year after purchase.
