In September 2015, the Echidna dealer for Benelux, ARVI, took a D5HP excavator saw for a demonstration to a customer.
The task was to excavate a large pipe. The pipe was double with inner pipe 850mm filled with concrete and the outer 900mm. Both of the steel pipes were 10mm thick.
They performed 3 cuts, 8 metres apart. The first took almost half and hour with a very cautious driver, however after practice, the third cut took 15 minutes.
The customer was very pleased with the result.
