Comparing Sailrite® Blade & Acu-Cutter Foam Cutter
Having a high-quality, efficient foam cutter can save you both time and frustration when working with foam. If you’ve ever been curious about which one to chose for your next project, Sailrite offers two superior options in the way of foam cutting tools. This blog will provide a side-by-side comparison of the Sailrite® Blade Foam Saw and the Acu-Cutter™ 350 Foam Cutter.
The Sailrite Blade and Acu-Cutter create smooth clean cuts, even in high-density foam, making them ideal tools for both DIYers and small upholstery shops. They also feature a locking trigger and dual blades for fast, accurate foam cutting. This means that one blade remains stationary and holds the foam while the second blade quickly saws through it. The Sailrite Blade is offered in 110V (60W) and 220-240V power options, and the Acu-Cutter is offered in a 110V. While the Acu-Cutter is the more expensive of the two tools, they are both covered by a one year warranty. The Sailrite Blade also comes with a padded carrying case for safe storage and transport, unlike the Acu-Cutter.
Version 2 (V2) of the Sailrite Blade Foam Saw includes a stainless steel blade guide and mounting plate as well as a new stationary blade and captive design. This makes replacement of the blade much easier and also helps to retain the blade better with a new restrictive plate at the top of the cutting (moving) blade. This enhances the tool for greater durability and longer life.
In the chart below, you will find a detailed table indicating a few crucial differences between the two tools.
As you can see, the Sailrite Blade and the Acu-Cutter are superb when it comes to dealing with a plethora of foam. Your choice may depend upon price point and added features, but Sailrite has you covered no matter what. Good luck on your next project!
