CS Unitec's PowerGrit air chain saw is designed for utility, municipal, construction and industrial pipe-cutting applications. The saw allows the user to cut from one position unlike abrasive cut-off saws that require the operator to maneuver the saw 360 degrees around the pipe. Special patented diamond segments grind rather than tear the material, which reduces vibration and eliminates kickback for a precise, clean cut in less time. The PowerGrit air chain saw has a cutting capacity of up to 20 inches in diameter.
