Our range of power tools are among the most sought after - particularly cordless drills and the concrete saw. If you are interested to buy such a power tool for the first time, here are a few things you need to know about this power tool first:
A concrete saw is a power tool designed for cutting through concrete and other masonry material. A concrete saw utilizes hand-held operation or walk-behind, similar to a tiller. Like many other varieties of power saws, a concrete saw can have a chain, circular, or jig blade.
Powered by electricity, gasoline, air, or hydraulics, a concrete saw uses either abrasive or diamond blade cutting technology and is designed for either dry or wet sawing. The primary difference between a concrete saw and a standard power saw is its ability to withstand the heat from intense friction and cool down rapidly. This is typically achieved with well-designed air flow.
There are a number of applications for a concrete saw. Brick, concrete, and cement can be cut out for repair, demolition, or modification. Most concrete saws will also cut through rebar.
Construction contractors use concrete saws for a number of commercial applications where concrete or masonry is involved and road repair crews use concrete saws for cutting out asphalt for repair or replacement. A concrete saw is also useful for smaller home renovations such as driveway, retaining wall, and patio repair or replacement.
Concrete saws are manufactured in a variety of sizes and powers and are designed to cut in different ways. The use of one type of concrete saw over another depends largely on the application. Depending on the volume of concrete to be cut, an operator may choose a hydraulic concrete saw over a gasoline powered saw because they are more powerful and will cut faster.
Though a concrete saw is a useful power tool, most are heavy tools with heavy duty cutting capacities. Inexperienced operators should use caution when wielding a concrete saw for the first time. Novice operators may want to consider using an electric or gasoline powered concrete saw or hiring a masonry professional.
Some safety tips on using a concrete saw
It’s highly important for all the construction workers to wear their safety gears before they start with their on-site work. It means whether you are someone who will be using a concrete saw or a core drilling machine you must put on your safety gears. In addition to that, workers who have nothing to do with concrete saws and core drilling machines but still have to work on the construction site should also take necessary safety measures to prevent injuries.
The most important safety measure that construction workers should consider is to check the machines. See if the concrete saw or the core drilling machine is working properly or not. If the machines are not functioning properly, they either have to repair them or replace them. A machine that does not work properly can create a lot of problems for them, so it’s better to fix the issue before they begin their work, especially outdoors.
Whenever you use an electric tool, it’s your responsibility to stay away from water to prevent accidents. You should try to prevent short circuits to avoid greater problems, so stay away from water while using an electric tool.
If you are cutting concrete with your tool, make sure never to allow anything to distract you, as that can lead to accidents. For example, if you are using a concrete saw, make sure that you do not start talking to a fellow worker or attend a phone call, as that can lead to a fatal accident. so prevent distractions, otherwise, you may end up injuring yourself from the machine.
