ESCO Tool's Saw & Track System Evens Off Concrete Pilings, Minimizes Operator Fatigue

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2011) - ESCO Tool is introducing an air-powered saw and track system for evening the tops of concrete pilings or forms and cutting through steel and rebar. It adapts to virtually any size piling, speeds the cutting process, and saves wear and tear on the operator.

The ESCO APS-438 Universal Air-Powered Saw and FlexTrack® system features track sections that can be attached to the circumference of pilings and forms from 6 in. dia. and up. Gliding along the track on a trolley with four "V" grooved stainless steel roll guides, this piling cutting saw is fully supported to minimize operator fatigue and produces square cuts.

Capable of cutting accuracy to ±1/16" when mounted to a smooth surface, the ESCO APS-438 Universal Air-Powered Saw features a 14" fiberglass reinforced abrasive blade that cuts to 5" depths and has a trolley that mounts rigidly to the FlexTrack® system. Suited for cutting concrete and highly alloyed steel, the saw has a 3HP motor and operates on 90psi @80CFM.

The ESCO APS-438 Universal Air-Powered Saw sells for $5,995.00 (list) or can be rented and FlexTrack® is priced from $124.00 per ft., depending upon length.
