When it comes to concrete chain sawing, Fine Cut’s team of operators are trained to cut masonry and concrete structures without over cuts with our hand-held concrete chain saws. With the use of concrete chainsaws we are able to make plunge-cuts for creating joints, windows and doorways, cut floor slabs, walls, retaining walls, concrete roof decks and demolition cutting with chain saws. Concrete chain sawing requires the use of a specialty saw for cutting into concrete, pipe and so much more. A concrete chain saw contains diamond grit to give it the strength and durability required to cut tough surfaces.
If you need an opening cut deeper than five-inches, concrete chain sawing is right for the job. Concrete chainsaws have a 12-inch bar and work great for cutting out openings in concrete for plumbing, electrical components, windows and more. Concrete chain sawing is also designed like a chainsaw using a power head, guide bar and diamond chain.
A two-stroke gasoline engine powers concrete chainsaws and the saws use a chain that incorporates diamond segments that are laser welded to the chain in place of the cutting teeth typically found on a wood chainsaw. The diamond segments create a grinding action that wears away the concrete. This grinding action creates a very safe cutting operation with no kickback and each chain will cut from 30-feet to 60-feet of concrete.
While similar to a concrete cut-off saw, a concrete chainsaw is designed to plunge nose first into the concrete and has the ability to cut more than twice as deep as a 14-inch cut-off saw. Concrete chainsaws provide a deeper cut with no over-cut, allowing you to make square corners, which is not possible with a cut-off saw. They can be used to make openings as small as four-inches by four-inches and to cut odd shapes and sizes.
Fine Cut may specialize in concrete chain sawing, but we’re able to chain saw through cinder block, structural concrete, stone, brick and asphalt as well. For more information about concrete chain sawing and the types of projects we can do, call Fine Cut at (816) 540-5787,
