These pneumatic chain saws are designed for cutting wood and plastic, as well as for underwater and underground mining applications.

Standard equipment includes an Armor Tipped Guide Bar and a Super Chisel saw chain 404 pitch. Carbide-tipped and ripping saw chains are also available for special cutting applications. The carbide tipped saw chain is ideal for cutting plastic and polyethelene material. It will also cut through steel nails, creosoted wood and wood with barnacles underwater.

The Series 5 1026 air chain saw is optimal for cutting wood. It is used for heavy-duty applications by construction, power generation utilities and municipal rail transit systems. Series 5 1027 plastic-cutting chain saws come with integrated water feed to lubricate the saw chain.
