Diamond Rocksaws Features
Reversible Blade Spin
For site protection and horizontal cutting.This is an optional feature of all Echidna diamond tipped saws, including high speed and multiple blade models.
It allows the operator to control he direction of spin at will, so that the debris can be directed away from the excavator cabin, or exposed property or persons.
In residential areas, mud in your face will often be the best option.
Rapid automatic blade brake
Echidna has designed an hydraulic braking system to stop the blade almost instantaneously when the power to the saw has been removed.
Being integral to the hydraulic circuit of the rock saw, the brake does not contain parts that wear. This means there is no maintenance required, no periodic replacement of parts, and no contamination of the the working parts of the saw with abrasive powder from worn brakes.
The added advantage is that the brake operates automatically, and stays on when power is removed from the saw. The blade is locked at all times unless the saw is in use.
This is an important safety feature designed and developed by Echidna.
Convert to Multiblade saw
The robust construction of the spindle bearing support or all of the Echidna diamond rock saws allows for the mounting of two or more blades, with an offset spacer for cutting of trenches.Trenches from 20mm up to 500mm in width can be cut this way.
Multiple blades can be fitted for quarrying finished slices of stone.
For wider trenches, we recommend using our DX2 range of diamond saws, with blade(s) on either side of the saw.
The protective shield on Echidna Diamond Saws is made up of two independent assemblies.
The inner shield rotates by 360 deg. (ie full circle) around the blade. It is constrcted so that the outer rim sits flush with the outer face of the cutting blade.
The outer guard swivels around the inners shield independently by approx 45deg.
With this arrangement it is possible to open the shield angle to cover most of the blade in situations where surrounding property must be well guarded from the cut debris.
The outer guard provides full protection ofrom both sides of the cuttting blade. The outer guard can be removed when cutting along a boundary wall is required.
The construction of the front bearing hub and its sealing arrangement gives a life time warranty for protection against any dirt entering the bearing space and even allows to use the saw fully submerged in water.
Rotating Head Bracket
Rotate the saw by 90 deg. increments without disconnecting from the excavator. This is available for saws up D3 size
The standard stand for all Echidna diamond saws has a rotating cradle. Rotating the cradle allows easy regripping if cutting on alternate sides of the excavator.
Direct Drive - no gearbox
Standard, high power and high speed diamond rocksaws are directly driven from the hydraulic motor. This means there is no gear box. The advantage is higher efficiency and less maintenance.
Narrow body for trenching
One of our design criteria is to minimise the width of the saw, to allow it to be inserted into trenches.
Wood Cutting and Stump Grinding
Our diamond rocksaws are built with full bearing protection, which allows them to be converted to wood cutting saws and stump grinders. The high speed models in particular have enough speed for serious stump grinding.
