Wall sawing employs a circular blade on a
track-mounted machine. The track is attached to vertical walls or steep
inclines, or floors that will not permit the use of flat saws. Wall or
track sawing is typically specified to cut precise dimensional door, vent
and window openings. Straight as well as bevel cuts are possible with the
wall saw. The wall saw is also an excellent choice for creating precise
openings in any concrete structure.
The power source
for a wall saw system is either hydraulic,
air or electric. Wall saw blades can range from 18 to 72 inches (457 mm to 1.8 m)
in diameter and can cut up to 33 inches (838 mm) in depth.
