There is increasing demand for a high-speed and powerful saber saw in overseas markets. The new Model CR 13VA, which features a powerful motor and a swing cutting action, has been developed to meet that market demand. The swing cutting action is a new technology, in which the saw blade is swung like a pendulum, regardless of whether the saw blade is mounted upward or downward.
4-1. Selling Point Descriptions (1) Fast cutting speed The Model CR 13VA can cut various construction materials fast and efficiently thanks to the high-power motor whose maximum output is over 1000 W (Model CR 10V: 680 V). (2) Saw blade can be mounted and removed without the use of tools (patent pending) Generally, conventional saber saws required a blade holder and a bolt to secure the saw blade.
(3) Saw blade can be mounted in either direction, upward or downward The Model CR 13VA is convenient for cutting materials on the floor or near window frames, and also for plunge cutting on plywood panels because the saw blade can be installed upside down.
(5) Dust- and water-resistant triple-sealing construction <patent pending> The Model CR 13VA has a triple-sealing construction to protect from the large amount of dust generated when cutting construction materials, autoclaved lightweight concrete, etc. and also from waste water when cutting pipes.
Base of saber A base with an added shock-absorbing spring Portable electric The entire design of the Model CR 13VA (design right) (The design is the first of its type including the new front cover design.) A curved saber saw blade that can cut stainless materials Saw blade for It is under development with a saw blade manufacturer in Japan.

Loosen the Nylock Bolt (W/Flange) M6 x 35  which secures the fan of the armature ass'y (approximately two turns). Remove the four Machine Screws (W/Washers) M5 x 60  and then pull out the Gear Cover  from the main body. Remove the Nylock Bolt (W/Flange) M6 x 35 , then Second Shaft (A)  section and the Sub Shaft  can be removed from the Gear Cover .
(3) Disassembly of the blade mounting section (Fig. 5) Remove the Retaining Ring (E-Type) for D14 Shaft  from Plunger (A) Set  with a flatblade screwdriver. At this time, be careful that Spring (A)  is pushing against the retaining ring. Next, slide the Guide Washer  backward and remove the two Steel Balls D4.76 .
(5) Disassembly of the Second Shaft (A)  section (Fig. 7) Remove the Retaining Ring for D17 Shaft  from Second Shaft (A) . While holding the side surface of the Recipro Plate , push the end surface of Second Shaft (A)  (parallel with the side surface of the Recipro Plate ) with a hand press and remove the Recipro Plate  in an assembled state.
(8) Disassembly of Handles (A)  and (B)  section (Fig. 10) Remove the six Tapping Screws (W/Flange) D4 x 25 . Remove the Grip Cover  by pulling it backward and remove Handle (A) . Then, the Switch Trigger  can be removed. Fig.
2. Reassembly Reassembly can be accomplished by following the disassembly procedures in reverse. However, special attention should be given to following items.
