Part of sawing through concrete is finding the best tools for the job. When you are torn between choosing electric saws or their gas-powered counterparts, the easiest method is to compare them side by side. Here is a look at the advantages of both. Once you make an informed decision, you will find that your workers will have a much easier job than they did before.
Looking at Electric Saws
These concrete-cutting saws, relative to others, are much more lightweight. They don’t need a canister to hold fuel, and this means that it isn’t as heavy. This means that the saw operator doesn’t tire out as quickly. Fatigue on the job can be dangerous for a multitude of reasons. Since fatigue is less of a problem, these saws are less inconvenient to store.
They won’t cause a fire hazard when they aren’t in use. Plus, in areas that ask for silence such as libraries, schools, and places of worship, these saws are more appropriate since by, and large they are much quieter. They don’t need as much maintenance and are more suitable for indoor use when those applications become necessary. There are corded saws and cordless saws, depending on the situation in which you will need to deploy these cutting devices. Finally, the electric saws are much friendlier to the environment and pose less of a risk to the operator as well.
Looking at Gas-Powered Saws
Now let’s take a closer look at why gas-powered saws can be better suited for your next job. For one thing, these saws are much more flexible and portable, which can be helpful when cords and wires could present a job hazard that otherwise wouldn’t need to exist. Many more workers know how to use gas-powered saws are feel more comfortable operating them as a result. When it comes to a heavy-duty task, these are the ones that are preferred. One bonus is how durable they are, and can withstand wet cutting along with dry cutting. Because of this, your team won’t have to worry about how much dust and silica is ejected as the saws slice through the concrete slabs and blocks that they need to break down.
