Arbortech's Patented AS170 Brick and Mortar Saw Offers Optimum Safety, Precision and Cutting Speed for Tuckpointing, Masonry Restoration and Repair

LEOMINSTER, MA--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) -  Arbortech's new AS170 brick and mortar saw with its patented Allsaw™ technology, offers extreme levels of precision, accuracy and control, and safety.

Key Facts:

  • Its patented cutting technology uses a unique orbital cutting motion with two forward facing blades that combine to perform both a hammering and a cutting action that allows for the user to have clear visibility and the ability to accurately cut square and deep.
  • Weighing 9.5 pounds, the AS170 saw has a cutting depth of 4-3/4 inches and a cutting width of 1/4 inch.
  • The saw features a powerful, 13-amp motor constructed with a dust-resistant, heavy-duty design to ensure long motor life in the toughest environments.
  • The AS170 generates very little flydust, protecting the operator and creating a cleaner and safer environment. The unique design of the saw prevents kickback and is easy to control, which provides additional operator safety.
  • In addition to brick and mortar, the AS170 can be used to cut fiber cement, fast block, soft sandstone, natural limestone, softer stone, hardwood, chip or plywood, tree roots in the ground, foam, PVC, acrylic and fiberglass sheet.
  • It is ideal for installation applications such as vents, ducts, registers, plumbing, windows, electrical cabling, conduit and switch boxes, air conditioning units, lighting and waste units. Other applications include renovation, restoration and repair work such as tuckpointing, expansion joints and wall section replacement, chimney repair, cutting of archways and windows and removal of built-in fixtures and furniture.
