Hand Held Sawing

Hand held sawing refers to portable saws that are fitted with diamond blades such as hand saws and ring saws. This is more convenient for smaller jobs, where manoeuvrability and space is limited and the depth of cut required is moderate.

Hand Sawing
Hand Saw Cutting is very versatile and can be used in almost any situation where cuts are required. Hand held saws have a maximum cutting depth of 265mm. Power options include petrol, hydraulic, electric and high-frequency electric. 

Typical applications include:
• Formation of new doorways and windows
• Expansion cuts in new slabs
• Demolition cutting of walls and floors
• Penetrations for service ducts
• Creating openings for electrical and plumbing services
• Sawing concrete pipe to length
• Precision trimming

Ring Sawing
Ring sawing is a hand held method of saw cutting, used to form cuts up to 265mm deep in all building materials, using a diamond tipped offset cutting wheel, either hydraulically or electrically driven Ring Saws are commonly used where wall saws are not effective.
Ring Saw Cutting is ideal when dealing with restricted access and a clean cut is required. It is low noise and vibration free. The ring saw differs from other saws because the blade is not put on a spindle, the blade has no core (center) and it rotates on a roller system. The depth of cut is limited by the blade diameter, but up to 265mm can usually be managed.

Typical applications include:
• Wall, Door and window openings
• Concrete pipes and man hole covers
• Cutting in confined spaces

Chain Sawing
Chain sawing is used where over cutting is not allowed to form square cut corners, ideally used in masonry openings and capable of cutting up to 600mm deep. Cut with ease, speed and portability through Reinforced Concrete, Brick, Block, Concrete Pipe and Natural Stone.
The unique versatility of a concrete cutting chain saw includes the ability to cut small mechanical openings, deep plunge cuts (up to 20" deep and 19" square), perfect corners and an endless variety of irregular shapes that are simply not possible with conventional concrete sawing equipment.

Typical applications include:
• Precise cuts and openings in concrete, brick and block walls to prevent overcuts
• Create perfect corners in doors and windows
• Cut mechanical openings and irregular shapes (ducting, floor boxes, etc)
• Perfect square corners up to 19" with no overcuts
• Deep plunge cuts – up to 20" deep
