Floor Saw Usage
Successful flat sawing is a combination of blade selection, blade speed, and common sense.
Pay Attention! -The saw does not follow the cut itself- you have to guide it! - Stay with the
Water-is the blade's life and death. Don't be sparing with it. When road sawing keep the hose out of the traffic lane. Never gravity feed the water to the cut.
Always step-cut - Make a 1" cut as your guide cut- Never cut full depth on the first pass.
Blade Speed -Always match the RPM of the saw to the diameter of the blade. Running a blade at higher than recommended speed is dangerous. At worst the blade could fly apart and at best it reduces cutting efficiency. The maximum cutting efficiency of a blade is at approximately 12000 SFPM
PRODUCTIVITY IS NEVER INCREASED BY INCREASING BLADE SPEED!
Listen to the engine - You will be able to tell when a blade is bouncing, the belts are slapping means lose, and when the blade is lifting itself out of the cut.
