Concrete chain sawing is used by Fine Cut’s operators who are trained to cut masonry and concrete structures without over cuts with our handheld concrete chainsaws. We are able to create joints, windows and doorways, floor slabs, walls, retaining walls, concrete roof decks, and demolition cutting with chainsaws. We can cut through cinder block, concrete, structural concrete, stone, brick, and asphalt.
Most people think about buying a chainsaw for cutting trees and branches, but if you work in the construction industry, you’re well aware of the need for a specialty chainsaw for cutting into concrete, pipe and so much more. This type of chainsaw, used in concrete chain sawing, is referred to as a concrete chainsaw even though they’re used on other materials. A concrete chainsaw is quite similar to a regular chainsaw but there are some key differences that distinguish it and allow to tear into these hard materials.
For starters, the concrete chainsaw itself contains diamond grit to give it the strength and durability required to cut tough surfaces. Another significant difference is that the chain is lubricated with water in order to overcome the high friction and to wash away the dust as our operators cut, saving them from inhaling it into your lungs.
These concrete chainsaws are serious tools used by construction professionals. For example, they are often used to cut deep holes in concrete, precision cutting, pile cutting or even for removing stone in the pre-carving phase of creating a sculpture. Fire departments often use them to enter buildings in case of an emergency. These are precision tools capable of cutting extremely hard surfaces thanks to the high-quality materials used to engineer such powerful tools.
One of the most common methods used when using a concrete chainsaw is plunge-cutting, which essentially means that the tip of the chainsaw blade is pushed into the hard material. This allows our operators to make small square cuts, which would be impossible otherwise.
