The Ergo-Schnitt telescopic rods are made from glass fibre braid (GFB) covered with a layer of resin. The material offers 5 x higher resistance against breaking compared with aluminium. No corrosion occurs to the GFB and it is very low wear-and-tear. GFB does not conduct electricity when it is clean and dry. This has been confirmed and certified by an accredited inspection laboratory. Ergo-Schnitt telescopic bars can be steplessly set to any height. A tensile strength of 75 kg is attained via an eccentric lever which can be set with the opposite nut (left handed thread). The saw blade is made from time-proven Japanese SK5 steel. The rows of teeth are induction hardened and every fifth tooth has a special position so that the dust is removed from the cut more easily. Medium tooth width (8 teeth on 30 mm (1.18 in)) for universal use in fresh, soft, hard and dry wood.
Available from 1,48 meter to 7,86 meter.
