Designed to follow random crack patterns in asphalt and concrete surfaces, General Equipment Co.'s CS8 random crack saw uses 8-inch diameter dry cut-type diamond blades to produce smooth-sided cuts for proper crack-filling procedures. Power is supplied by an 11-hp Honda engine equipped with a Cyclone-type air filter system for maximum protection against fine-grained dust contamination. An available propane engine conversion allows use in confined areas where gasoline exhaust fumes are not permissible. A center-mounted blade configuration allows the CS8 to center pivot about its own axis to more easily follow random crack patterns.

CS Unitec's PowerGrit Air Chain Saw is designed for utility, municipal, construction and industrial pipe-cutting applications. It safely and quickly cuts ductile iron pipe, PVC pipe, HDPE pipe and cured-in-place piping, and has a cutting capacity of up to 20 inches in diameter. The PowerGrit Air Chain Saw allows the user to cut from one position rather than having to maneuver the saw 360 degrees around the pipe. Additionally, pneumatic power eliminates the exhaust fumes associated with conventional saws, especially in confined spaces. It is available with 15- or 20-inch bar lengths.

The new K970 power cutter from Husqvarna replaces the K960. Features include an X-Torq engine that produces more output than the previous model at 6.4 hp, while reducing emissions by up to 75 percent and lowering fuel consumption by 20 percent. The Active Air Filtration system is designed to extend filter life and ensure minimum motor wear even in the most dust-filled environments. Ergonomic improvements include a rear handle that has been equipped with a soft insert to ensure the operator has a better grip and hip support; a tank lid located to better accommodate filling; and a vibration dampening system that reduces operator fatigue.

Makita introduces its new 7 ¼-inch Magnesium Hypoid Saw (Model 5377MG), 7 ¼-inch Magnesium Circular Saw with LED light (Model 5007MG pictured) and 7 ¼-inch Magnesium Circular Saw with LED light and electric brake (Model 5007MGA). All three saws feature highly durable magnesium components and a powerful 15-amp Makita-built industrial motor. The use of magnesium allowed Makita to develop a more rigid platform while shaving nearly one pound from the 5007MG's final weight and two pounds from the 5377MG's weight.
