POWERGRIT Chain Saw Cuts Underground Pipe and Minimizes Excavation

CS Unitec's PowerGrit Air Chain Saw is ideal for utility, municipal, construction and industrial pipe cutting applications. Cutting ductile iron pipe, cast iron pipe, PVC pipe, HDPE pipe, and cured-in-place piping is now safer, faster and easier. It has a cutting capacity of up to 20" dia. This saw offers significant advantages over conventional gasoline cut-off saws using abrasive blades. It increases operator safety, reduces physical effort and boosts productivity. The PowerGrit Air Chain Saw allows the user to cut from one position. Abrasive cut-off saws require the operator to maneuver the saw 360 degrees around the pipe. Cutting from one side reduces excavation for underground pipes. Special patented diamond segments grind rather than tear the material which reduces vibration and eliminates kickback. The result is a precise, clean cut in less time. Additionally, pneumatic power eliminates the exhaust fumes associated with conventional saws, especially in confined spaces. This CS Unitec saw requires minimal excavation when cutting underground utility pipes, saving time and budget expenses. Maintenance for the pneumatic saw is minimal, as there are no belts, pistons, gas fuel lines or carburetors to service. Available with 15" or 20" bar lengths, the PowerGrit diamond chain saw can be used hand-held to cut pipe up to 20". It cuts wet with water lubricating bars. Typically 3 or 4 gallons of water are sufficient for one cut of an 8" diameter ductile iron pipe. Options include a pipe clamp with up to 12" capacity.
