Torrance, CA, January 27, 2009 For many years MK Diamond masonry products have delivered the features and quality professionals need. The trend toward pavers makes the new MK-1280 16-inch Paver/Brick saw the ideal solution for cutting the larger paver and brick products that are popular today. Designed for professional paver installers, landscapers and masons, the MK-1280 is built rugged for maximum durability.
The MK-1280 has a fully welded steel frame that provides rigid support for the cutting head and blade that ensures straight, fast cuts. The wear resistant steel roller wheels provide the table with greater load carrying capacity.
The 16 blade capacity provides a depth of cut of 6. The table provides a length of cut of 28. This gives the MK-1280 the capacity required for cutting the new large format bricks, pavers, and architectural stone materials.
The reliable and easy starting Honda GX240 gas engine offers plenty of power for cutting all masonry materials. Also available is the 2 horse power heavy-duty 120 volt AC, single phase, Baldor electric motor. This motor comes with a watertight switch, thermal overload protection and 6″ power cord.
The closed back design with vacuum port helps with dust control when dry cutting and the standard size port allows vacuum hose attachment to any wet/dry vacuum. The blade guard has a garden hose style connector with adjustable nozzle for optional wet cutting that furnishes a clean water supply thus saving wear and tear on the blade.
The optional rolling cart, with a powder coated finish, is inches from the ground so moving and cutting around the job site is fast and easy when setting pavers. The welded frame, with a wire mesh decking, has 10″ pneumatic casters and a 38″ long handle. The weight capacity of the cart is 1000 lbs. It cuts down the back labor and work time for installers, so they can get more done in the same amount of time.
