Duotech Oscillation Technology

One of the touches added to its top-of-the-line oscillating tool is the Duotech feature, allowing users to select between two different oscillation “widths” for more precise control, especially useful when making cuts in constricted spaces or adjacent to materials they don’t want to damage.

Excellent ergonomics and balance for extended use

Rockwell goes to quite a length to design their tools with ergonomics in mind. They want their tools to be comfortable to use over extended periods, reducing fatigue and exposure to repetitive use effects. The F80 is well balanced, light, and easy to control. Users do need to keep in mind that this tool works by vibration and that will be felt..
