Wheel Saw

Wheel Saw

  • Cut through a variety of hard surfaces including asphalt and concrete  
  • Powered by the carrier’s high-flow hydraulics, the wheel saw cuts trenches for utility lines 
  • The trench cleaner (available with 6-inch and 8-inch wheels only) assures a clean trench for installation 
  • Hydraulic depth adjustment gauge delivers a consistent, uniform cut depth  
  • Operates close to curbs and walls for a close cut 
  • Provides a more precise cut than air or hydraulic hammers  
  • Ideal for road repair crews and rental facilities 

Features & Benefits

Top Tasks

  • Cut trenches for installing water, gas, electrical, utility, and fiber-optic cable lines 
  • Prepare pavement for repairs 
  • Cut through asphalt, rebar, concrete, frozen ground, and wire mesh 

How It Works

The hydraulic motor turns the carbide tipped wheel to cut material which then exits through openings on the side of the wheel saw. A hydraulic cylinder controls the depth of cut. A second hydraulic cylinder raises and lowers the trench cleaner to provide a clean bottom trench.

Additional Details

Powered by the carrier’s high-flow hydraulics, the wheel saw cuts through asphalt, concrete, and other materials to produce a trench for installing utility lines. The trench cleaner (available with 6 in. and 8 in. wheels only), which is raised and lowered hydraulically, assures a clean trench for installation. Use the hydraulic depth adjustment gauge to deliver a consistent, uniform cut depth. For operating close to curbs and walls, the hydraulic side-shift allows the attachment to shift flush with any nearby object for a close cut.

Operate with minimal damage to the surrounding jobsite and eliminate the mess of excavation. The wheel saw attachment provides a more precise cut than air or hydraulic hammers and is easier to transport than dedicated machines.

The wheel saw is the ideal attachment for road repair crews and rental facilities.
