The Husqvarna Soff-Cut saws solve one of the biggest problems contractors face. Once concrete has been laid it begins to dry and as it dries cracks form. The best most contractors and building crews can do is hope the cracks are not too wide or difficult to fill. Until recently cutting the concrete while it was still drying was not advised. This is because drying concrete will chip and break easily. The Soff-Cut range of early-entry saws are designed to cut early in the drying process. The anti-ravel skid plate keeps pressure on the concrete so the saw can cut without breaking or tearing the concrete even though it is still soft. Importantly this minimises the risk of random cracking because you are controlling where the internal stresses are focused.
|As the concrete dries it develops internal stresses, leading to cracks.||With an early -entry saw a joint can be sawn within the first few hours of laying. This helps control the direction of the crack as it forms.|
The husqvarna Soff-Cut Saw range is now available on our website, as are the blades and any accessories you may need. There are a total of four saws available to meet the differing needs of the industry.
Husqvarna Soff-Cut 150
The Soff-Cut 150 is the smallest and easiest to transport model in the range. Designed for smaller areas, this saw is easy to use and convenient to convey between sites. Low noise means this is the right choice for most residential areas, or other sites which need minimal disruption.
Husqvarna Soff-Cut 2000 Early Entry Saw
The Soff-Cut 2000 is ideal for medium to heavy duty commercial and industrial sites. Three different blade widths are available, so you have a range of options when you want to control cracking.
Husqvarna Soff-Cut 4000 Early Entry Saw
The Soff-Cut 4000 is a heavy duty machine for large industrial sites and paving applications. With a larger engine than the smaller models this self-propelled saw delivers great results in larger areas.
Husqvarna Soff-Cut 4200 Early Entry Saw
The Soff-Cut 4200 is the largest model in the range. Fully featured with a 23 hp twin-cylinder petrol engine, three-stage cyclonic air cleaner, oil cooler, full-pressure oil lubrication, hydraulic valve lifters, mechanical fuel pump and an oil alert light. Despite all of these features, the 4200 has a lightweight frame to reduce the footprint on green concrete. Ideal for large area industrial, commercial and paving applications.
These saws offer a revolutionary approach to laying concrete, cutting down on expenses and reducing time spent on site.
