Step Cutting is recommended when using a walk-behind saw for optimal blade and saw performance. It is a method of cutting concrete where the operator makes incremental cuts into the concrete at a partial depth until the desired depth of cut is reached. This technique helps prevent premature blade wear and segment loss. The number of steps depends on the material being cut, the saw size, and the needed depth of cut. Step cutting will increase the life of your blade and give you the desired cut in your application.
