Diamond & Carbide Rock Saws for Excavators
Antraquip offers carbide and diamond rock saw attachments for excavators of all sizes for various applications. Carbide saws offer a rock cutting solution for soft to medium hard rock with a minimum width of roughly 4 inches (100mm) while the Diamond Saw offers a solution for the cutting hard rock that other methods of mechanized cutting can simply not handle. The AQD series can cut the hardest of rock including granite, basalt etc. as well as reinforced concrete.
Identifying the correct model for your excavator is an important step. Please see below a general chart to match up the right saw with your carrier based on weight. Please contact Antraquip for more detailed assistance in model selection.
Features and Advantages of Echidna Diamond Blade Rock Saws
The dynamic brake engages instantly and stops the blade from spinning when power is cut from the rock saw. This is an extremely important safety feature. The brake operates at all times when there is no power to the rock saw, which improves ease of handling of the rock saw during transportation to and from the site.
Echidna rock saws can provide cutting in either direction, controlled from inside the excavator. This means that spray can be directed away from the excavator or away from nearby property or persons.
The compact size of the machine case of Echidna diamond tipped rock saws gives the maximum cutting depth from the blade. Often, this means that a smaller blade can be used. This reduces the cost of consumable parts (small blades are cheaper than large blades) and makes handling and use of the rock saw easier.
Short Body Length
Echidna diamond tipped rock saws have a short body length which means that the cut can be deeper and narrower especially in trenches.
Strong Light Construction
Echidna rock saws have been engineered using state-of-the-art CAD technology to provide a strong, light construction. This is important as they cause less strain on the excavator, allow better cut alignment which means a substantially longer life for your blade.
No Need for Case Drain
Echidna diamond rock saws do not need to be fitted with a case drain, saving on installation cost and complexity.
The rotating stand allows easy regripping of the rock saw for alternate side cutting. With the rotating stand, there is no need to travel around the saw with the excavator.
Single or Twin Blade Configuration
Echidna diamond rock saws come in twin and single blade configurations. Twin blades provide parallel cuts to significantly increase productivity during trenching operations.
Fast Blade Rotation
The fast blade rotation of Echidna diamond rock saws maximises cutting efficiency, lowering cutting costs and increasing overall productivity.
High Quality Blades and Cutting Stones
Echidna diamond saws come with high quality blades and cutting stones, to provide long life for your blade.
Independent Bearing Set
The design of the bearing assembly is such that the motor bearings do not support any load. This means that there is little chance of motor bearing failure, high reliability on low servicing costs.
The built in water nozzle provides effective blade cooling in most circumstances, without somebody standing by with a hose.
In-built motor and Oil Cooler - optional
The optional inbuilt motor and oil cooler allows the rock saw to operate for longer hours in heavy duty applications and/or hot climates.
Motor speed Sensor - optional
By providing accurate adjustment to power and oil flow to the diamond rock saw, the motor speed sensor provides greater efficiency in rock cutting.
Hydraulic Test Points - optional
The optional hydraulic test points allow in-field problem solving, reducing down time.
Echidna diamond rock saws have been designed to give easy access to all parts that require servicing, leaving the sealed parts uncompromised.
