General Equipment Company Offers Random Crack Saw

Updated Oct 22, 2010

Designed to follow random crack patterns in asphalt and concrete surfaces, General Equipment Company’s CS8 Random Crack Saw utilizes 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 allows the CS8 to 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 dust control port. An optional water mist control system can be used for wet sawing applications. 


In business for more than 50 years, General Equipment Company is a family-owned manufacturer of earth augers, ventilation blowers, asphalt cutters and surface preparation equipment.
