Crack Chasing Saws
Crack Chasing Saws are used to clean and prepare random cracks in concrete prior to the installation of semi-rigid epoxy or polyurea fillers.
Crack chasing saws are available in both walk-behind and handheld versions and use 4 ½” – 7” dry cutting diamond blades. Like joint cleanout saws, a crack chasing saw requires a dust shroud covering the blade with a port connected to a HEPA filtered dust collection system.
Walk-behind crack chasing saws are available with electric motors or gas/propane motors and provide a comfortable and convenient method for opening cracks to receive joint filler without having to be on hand and knee. Walk-behind crack chasing saws would typically provide for greater overall production.
Hand-held crack chasing saws utilize electric right angel grinders in 4 ½”, 5”, or 7” and are equipped with a dust containment shroud with port to connect the vacuum system. Hand-held crack chasing saws, because of their more compact size, are ideal for working in tight quarters and also provide the operator with a bit more control for small crack preparation.
