press release

The Lynx garden saw from Skil is a convenient alternative to hand saws. Its powerful 350 watt motor enables fast, efficient pruning of branches up to 80 millimeters in diameter – with little effort. Further advantages of the Lynx are its compactness and its low weight of only 1.5 kilograms. As a result, the Lynx is easy to operate even in difficult conditions such as working overhead or standing on a ladder and trying to reach as many branches as possible. The Lynx can be guided with one hand and also very comfortably with two: whilst one hand presses the accelerator switch on the bow-shaped handle, the other hand supports the garden saw behind the hand protector on the saw shaft. The user therefore has full control over the tool at all times. Softgrip surfaces also ensure a secure hold.

Quick, tool-free saw blade changes
The saw blades are quick and easy to change on the Lynx thanks to its “Clic” system: all you have to do is move the “Clic” lever in the direction shown to release the blade. Then you can click a new blade into the tool straightaway. All conventional saber saw blades with a length of 15 centimeters can be used. The garden saw comes complete with two wood saw blades, which means that once it has been purchased it is instantly ready to use.

“Easy Storage” system for space-saving storage
As with all of the smaller tools in the “Urban Series”, Skil supplies the Lynx with an “Easy Storage” hook for space-saving storage. Several hooks can be combined to form a rail on which the tools then hang close together and are quickly at hand.

The “Urban Series” from Skil
Skil offers a series of garden tools called “Urban Series” which make it especially easy to do work in smaller gardens or on roof terraces. They are designed for users who live in cities and want to create a “green oasis” even in a limited amount of space. The “Urban Series” comprises lawn mowers, line trimmers, hedge cutters, grass and shrub shears, electric weed brush, high-pressure washer, shredder, chainsaw and garden vacuum to offer a suitable tool for each of the typical gardening jobs.

The Lynx garden saw is available now at the recommended retail price of 69.99 euros including VAT. It comes complete with two wood saw blades and an "Easy Storage" hook for space-saving storage.

Skil is a global manufacturer of power tools for pragmatic users, both do-it-yourselfers and professionals. The company's founder, Edmond Michel, launched the first electric handsaw in the USA in 1924. The "Skilsaw", as it was called, was the world's first circular saw. It was a great success and initiated the development of a wide range of similarly successful power tools. Skil stands for high-quality products with innovative features at attractive prices. Since 1996, Skil has been part of the Bosch Group. The headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa are located in Breda, the Netherlands. 40 sales units are controlled from this location.
