Background and Identification
This cement saw is a walk-behind model, which means that it is much larger and stronger than handheld cement saws. The 18 inch diameter blade can be used for professional concrete cutting in a variety of applications including construction work, rescue crews, and other uses. It is capable of cutting through concrete, metal, stone, plastic, and masonry. Large power tools like this one should be handled carefully, and the operator should always read and follow any instructions and safety guidelines given in the owner’s manual.
This machine uses a four-stroke engine, which doesn’t require the user to mix oil and fuel to use it, unlike a two-stroke engine. Four-stroke engines are usually more efficient and clean than two-stroke engines. However, four stroke engines aren’t always better than two stroke engines, and which one you should look for in a machine depends on what the application of the machine will be. For a more detailed explanation of two-stroke engines vs four-stroke engines, you can read this explanation by the Chainsaw Journal.
