LA MIRADA, CA - With the housing market on the rise as well as remodeling and renovation, Makita, a manufacturer of power tools and industrial accessories, released an exclusive 7-1/4" saw blade featuring the Mexican National Soccer Team logo to reach its expanding market of demographically diverse contractors.

As the Official Power Tool Sponsor of the Mexican National Soccer Team (Federacion Mexicana de Futbol, or "FMF"), created this one-of-a-kind blade for the growing ranks of Hispanic contractors who follow FMF soccer.

"The passion and loyalty of the FMF fan is unmatched in the world of soccer," said Raquel Portillo, Makita marketing specialist, emerging markets. "With World Cup 2014 fast approaching, Mexico is battling through the qualifying rounds and the focus of frenzied FMF fans has intensified. For the Hispanic contractor who wears a tool belt to work, and wears the green, white and red colors of the beloved FMF on game days, the new FMF blade is a powerful symbol of this fan's unwavering support."

The Makita 7-1/4" 24T FMF Ultra-Coated Framing Blade (#A-95928-10) is engineered with premium features for construction building applications. Each of the blade's 24 teeth have an innovative "M" shape with two cutting points, so the blade cuts quickly but with the smooth finish typical of a 48-tooth blade. The blade is ultra-coated for reduced pitch build-up, with high-grade C-3 fine-grain tungsten carbide tips for improved durability. The blade is ideal for cutting rough framing lumber, pressure treated wood, plywood, OSB, and other engineered lumber.
