Spyder Products has launched its new Tarantula line of carbide-tipped hole saws, which range in size from ¾ to 4 ¼ inches in diameter.

According to the manufacturer, the Tarantula hole saws perform up to ten times faster than standard bi-metal hole saw products, and provide up to 50 times more cuts during their usable life. The carbide-tipped teeth may be used to cut through stainless steel, steel, cast iron, nail-embedded wood, and cement fiber board.

The saws feature Spyder’s Rapid Core Eject arbor system, which enables instant hole saw core ejection without the need for additional tools. In a one-second process, users can press a button, slide the assembly toward the drill, and pull the core free of the arbor. The arbor assembly also enables users to make holes up to 2 3/8 inches deep, easily cut at an angle, or layer two saws together to make larger-diameter holes.

"The Tarantula line represents the ultimate in hole saw performance and convenience," says Ryan Campbell, executive vice president of Spyder Products. "The cups are easy to install on any power drill, can be used to make quick work of everything from steel to cast iron to plastics to drywall and plaster, and cores can be ejected much faster than with competitive products."

As of the product’s launch date, the saws are available at Lowe’s in a six-piece kit priced at $69.98. Individually packaged hole saws and a professional nine-piece kit will be available from a range of retailers in the coming months. spyderproducts.com
