RGC HydraSaws use hydraulic direct drive power to cut masonry, concrete and stone without excessive noise, vibration or exhaust fumes. HydraSaws will cut walls and floors in confined spaces and under water. Cutting depths range from 5.25 inches to 9.5 inches and HydraSaws will operate from an RGC HydraPak or other compatible hydraulic sources, such as excavation equipment.
Garry Weiss, owner of Arrow Equipment in New London, Conn., has used the RGC HydraSaw in his basement and says it works well for places where the user wouldn't want fumes or odor. “I've used it myself and it seems to cut like butter,” Weiss says. “It's a nice, lightweight, easy-to-use saw.”

Partner Industrial Products
The new K950 Ring Saw from Partner Industrial Products is designed to operate in extreme environments such as concrete cutting. It eliminates the need for oversized rotary saw blades, diamond chain saws and hydraulic saws, while providing maximum operational efficiency with minimum physical effort, the company says. The saw's deep cutting ability results from a drive principle whereby two engagement rollers fit into a groove on the side of the blade and force the blade, under spring tension, forward on the drive wheel. The blade is guided by four rollers at the outside edge of the blade.
A&R Demolition, a demolition contractor in Austin, Texas, used the new Partner ring saw to cut 10-foot by 17-foot openings in the exterior walls of the historic 17-floor Texas State Hotel in downtown Houston.
“This new ring saw has cut the entire job in half,” says Chris Richardson, a principal with A&R Demolition. “It has saved more than half the cutting we've had to do because it cuts all the way through in one cut. Since we're saw-cutting an entrance onto every floor, that amounts to saving a lot of time and money.”
