iQ Power Tools, manufacturer of premium power tools with integrated dust collection systems, debuted the first prototype of their new iQ914 Dry-Cut Power Cutter, specifically designed for the masonry and hardscape industries at this year’s World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The iQ914, the world’s first 14” dry-cut power cutter with integrated dust control, captures up to 90% of the dust right at the source...resulting in a cleaner, safer and more efficient jobsite. “This saw is a game-changer for construction professionals, “ Sarah Williams, iQ’s Marketing Director. “The iQ914 is our new and improved version of our iQPC912 cutter. The entire machine has been reengineered with an improved ergonomic design and upgraded dust collection system, designed around our innovative cyclone technology. Plus, as an answer to contractor demand, it will offer a 14” blade”.
The OSHA-compliant iQ914 features a 81cc German-engineered, two-stroke, high performance engine and an anti-vibration system with five steel springs and a rubber-coated handle for fatigue-free operation.
The motor offers a choke-free easy start system, and a one Push Stop-System that stops the engine and immediately prepares it for renewed operation. The 914 also features automatic oiling, a benefit where oil is automatically mixed with the fuel by an electronically-controlled pump. The user never again has to worry about having the correct fuel mixture.
The integrated, powerful vacuum sucks dust through a retractable blade guard. This dust containment has a capacity of up to 5 pounds, with the ability to connect to the iQ426HEPA Dust Extractor for additional dust collection capacity. “We’ve also created a bucket docking station accessory for efficient dust collection,” added Williams.
