Concrete cutting machines and diamond chainsaws are the two most common concrete cutting tools. Their uses overlap quite a bit, but they are not interchangeable. Today , I will tell some ideals of concrete cutting machine , if that ,you can make the right choice for your next job
Concrete cutting machine
The go-to choice for most concrete cutting jobs, concrete cutting machines are walk behind saws used to cut concrete, asphalt and metal. They use either a composite resin abrasive wheel or diamond blade to cut in various applications.
Typically available in 14"or 16"inch sizes, concrete cutting machines can be powered
by a four stroke gas engine, a hydraulic power unit, an air compressor or an electric motor.
The choice of power source depends on the application. According to Our clients feedback, electric saws are popular with some operators because they’re lightweight, less noisy and simpler to use than other types of concrete cutting machines. They aren’t as powerful, however, and can take longer to complete a job.
“An electric cutter is preferred in enclosed environments,”“In cases like those, it’s less about performance and more about what’s needed in that particular situation.”
Hydraulic saws, on the other hand, have the highest power-to-weight ratio. They’re convenient because most contractors have a hydraulic power unit on hand, but they’re more expensive and less forgiving than a pneumatic saw, for example.
building up pressure in the hydraulic line,Also, a leak in a hydraulic line can be dangerous and expensive.
Pneumatic saws are also convenient, since air compressors are ubiquitous on jobsites. Operation is simple and has fewer potential hazards, If the blade stalls, you just release the air pressure, ,adding there’s also no risk of fluid leaks. Pneumatic saws are lightweight and simple to maintain as well.
pneumatic saws can be more expensive to use, however, due to the need for a compressor and the diesel fuel to power it.Most popular among the various types of cut-off machines are gas-powered units. These tools offer the advantages of portability and familiarity, but they do require more maintenance.
Besides power requirements and maintenance, there’s also the question of weight vs. performance. Operators appreciate a lighter saw because they’re easier to use, but there is a trade-off. “It depends on what the operator really wants,” “If the saw is lighter, it will cut shallow with more passes, so it might take longer. A heavier saw, on the other hand, will cut deeper and faster, but is heavier, which can make it harder to handle for some operators.”
For some, time is money. Others prefer to save wear and tear on the operator
