General Equipment’s Random Crack Saw: Ideal for repair of asphalt, concrete surfaces

February 10th, 2012



Designed to follow random crack patterns in asphalt and concrete surfaces, General Equipment Co.’s CS8/GH Random Crack Saw uses a 8-inch diameter, dry cut-type diamond blades to produce smooth-sided cuts for proper crack filling procedures.

Power is supplied by an 11-horsepower 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 lets the CS8/GH center pivot about its own axis to more easily follow random crack patterns. The configuration is intended to maximize blade life by minimizing undercutting. Maximum cutting width is 1/2 inch and maximum straight-line cutting depth is 1-1/2 inches.

Other standard features include an infinitely adjustable blade-height control with quick-release lever and 3-inch diameter vacuum port for dust control. An optional water mist control system can be used for wet sawing applications.
