Concrete Chains Saw Wall Saw Wire Saw
When you need to cut an opening in a concrete wall or cut through a block of hard material, why use a concrete chain saw instead of other well known methods? Money. The start up costs and training needed to successfully use a concrete chain saw are less than wall sawing or wire sawing.  Faster set-up and lower startup costs!
Safety Tips:
  • Avoid pinching the bar and chain in the cut - NEVER FOLLOW THE CUT from another saw.
  • Check for electrical wiring, gas or water lines near the cutting area
  • Inspect the chain frequently for damage and proper tension.
  • Wear proper safety equipment including: Eye protection, boots, gloves, hard hat, hearing protection, and rain suit
  • Select the correct chain type for the job and material.
