Carrying out sawing tasks professionally and efficiently

A water pipe protruding from the wall, the seasonal pruning, shredding plywood or cutting boards to size – construction sites, the garden and household offer a variety of sawing tasks that can be carried out especially comfortably with a cordless sabre saw.

No matter if you want to perform straight or curved cuts, plunge-cutting, or saw off protruding pipes so that they are flush: The compact and robust cordless sabre saw PRCS 10‑20V (also referred to as a tiger saw, recipro saw or electric ripsaw) with its corresponding saw blades is perfectly suited for sawing plastics and building material as well as wood and metal. 

Durable battery power – compatible with many other Trotec battery tools 
The powerful and durable 20V/2Ah lithium-ion battery provides for a durable and constantly high sawing capacity, even when the battery is low. At the push of a button the 3-stage battery level indication integrated in the housing displays the battery status – even if the battery is not connected to the device. By using the quick charger included in the scope of delivery a completely discharged battery will again be ready for use after 1 hour. The 20V/2Ah Flexpower multi-device battery of the PRCS 10‑20V can also be used with other Trotec power tools. In addition, a matching additional battery can be obtained from Trotec.

Guide shoe adjustable without tools with a 30° inclination
The flexible guide shoe of the sabre saw adapts to the workpiece surface with an inclination of up to 30°. In order to make optimum use of the saw blade length and to accurately adjust the respective cutting depth, the guide shoe can be set to the desired length without having to use any tools. The cutting depth for wood with the PRCS 10‑20V is up to 100 mm, for metal it is 8 mm, and for aluminium it is 10 mm. Furthermore, the guide shoe can be fully removed, e.g. in order to make the blade exchange even easier.

Stroke adjustment suiting the material 
In order to allow you to reliably saw any material, you can steplessly adjust the stroke rate – i.e. the speed of the saw blade movements –  between 0 and 3,000rpm even during operation via the on/off switch: light pressure for a light stroke, full pressure for the full stroke rate. Easy and intuitive!

With these you'll get through with anything

On-demand pendulum stroke 
If necessary, you can optimize your sawing work by an additional pendulum movement of the saw blade of 20 mm. This is especially reasonable if you wish your work progress to be fast. Stage 1 (pendulum movement on) is especially suitable for soft materials and for sawing wood in grain direction. For processing of very thin materials and if the cutting edges are to be fine and clean, however, we recommend switching the pendulum stroke off (stage 0). 

Saw blade exchange without the need for tools 
Owing to the user-friendly quick-action chuck, the saw blades can be changed in no time without any additional tools. One HCS wood saw blade (6 TPI) is already included in the scope of delivery. Of course, all ½” and S -shank universal saw blades for wood and metal as well as flexible bimetal saw blades for flush sawing go with this saw. The matching accessories offered to you by Trotec are 3 multi-piece sabre saw blade sets for a variety of different materials and requirements.

Safety first
The ergonomic U -shaped design of the handle, the rubberized soft grip inlays and the hand protection termination in the front area provide for safe, non-slip hold and strong, precise performance of the cuts. Owing to its optimum weight-size ratio, the PRCS 10‑20V features ideal handling properties in every working position. In order to provide protection against injuries, e.g. by accidental switch-on, the cordless sabre saw is equipped with a switch lock. The transport case supplied makes it possible to safely and easily carry along the power tools and their accessories, or to store them in a dust-proof place.

Convenience and performance are the compelling features
To cut a long story short: If cordless performance, high precision and pleasant comfort are important features you wish to have for your sawing tasks, the cordless sabre saw PRCS 10‑20V from Trotec is most definitely the right choice for you. Now let’s get to work – the next task is already at hand!

Flexpower – the innovative multi-device battery system from Trotec

Even the standard scope of delivery of this power tool from Trotec already includes a powerful 20 V multi-device battery from the Trotec Flexpower portfolio with a high charging capacity of 2 Ah. You can check the current charging status via the three-stage battery level indication that is integrated in the battery housing and clearly visible at one glance.

This power pack that can be fully charged in about an hour not only enables device runtimes extended by up to 33 % – as compared to standard batteries with only 1.5 Ah – moreover, this Flexpower multi-device battery can also be flexibly combined with different Trotec tools, including i.a. the cordless rotary hammer PRDS 10-20V, the cordless multi-function tool PMTS 10-20V, the cordless portable circular saw PCSS 10‑20V, the cordless work light PWLS 10‑20V, the cordless drill driver PSCS 11‑20V, the cordless hammer drill PHDS 11‑20V or the cordless pendulum action jigsaw PJSS 11‑20V.

Thanks to Flexpower you can do without unnecessary batteries and chargers – and the search for a suitable battery has also come to an end. Simply change the device, not the battery. Flexpower puts a stop to the unnecessary amount of various exchangeable batteries; the combination option with an ever increasing number of tools allows you flexibility at all times so you can carry on your projects energetically!

Premium branded battery for constantly full power

Premium branded battery

By now, lithium-ion batteries are widely distributed, after all they come without memory effect and self-discharge. Plus these batteries can be disconnected from the charger and used right away without it affecting the battery’s lifetime. But “lithium ions” is a generic term used for batteries of various qualities and made of diverse electrode materials; including those with a perceptibly weakening performance once the battery charge decreases.

Lithium-ion batteries supplied by Trotec are high-quality premium branded NMC batteries with a high energy density and charging voltage lasting until the end without exceptions – guaranteed! Compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries the performance of our premium branded batteries does not decrease even as the discharge increases.

Consequently, you benefit from lasting maximum power even with an almost empty battery. During longer operation only the battery charge decreases, never their performance – that is the added value of Trotec’s premium branded batteries!


Powerful and strong with 20V/2Ah Flexpower multi-device battery and up to 3,000 rpm for a variety of materials and high-profile cuts. The cordless sabre saw is delivered with a 1h quick charger, a handy transport case and an HCS wood saw blade (6 TPI).

To adapt the desired plunging depth you can simply adjust the length of the guide shoe – and without tools, too. Additionally it can be tilted up to 30° so that it can adapt flexibly to the material surface.
PRCS 10-20V – guide shoe
By means of the selector switch, a pendulum movement of the saw blade of 20 mm can be added. Stage 1 (pendulum movement on) enables a faster work progress in softer materials. Stage 0 (pendulum movement off) is ideal for fine and clean cut edges.
PRCS 10-20V – pendulum stroke
The large rubberized grip area with finger guard at the front allows for an extra firm and secure grip in every working situation. In this way, your hands are optimally protected and you can still securely hold the powerful saw close to the blade and guide it with precision.

Suitable for sawing all common building materials
With the PRCS 10‑20V accurate cuts can be accomplished without difficulty in two-hand operation. At the end of the shaft the sabre saw is additionally equipped with a guard to keep your fingers from slipping, that way you can also safely hold and guide the sabre saw by the rubber front handle close to the saw blade.
