Best Practices for Walk Behind Saw Operation

☑ Fill your saw with fresh, high quality diesel fuel. This will improve saw performance and extend useful life.

☑ Clean saw after every use to avoid build up of slurry when wet cutting.

☑ Replace your air filter and oil after every 100 hours. Grease and check blade shaft every 250 hours.

☑ Inspect saw for cracks in the blade guard. Make sure belts are properly tensioned, per owner's manual specifications. Inspect saw for loose nuts and bolts before running.

☑ Inspect diamond blade (wheel) for: visible segment loss, cracking segments, heat marks, core cracking, and/or undercutting. If any of these are found, take the blade out of service.

☑ Use saw blade (wheel) with correct arbor & drive pin for safety and best performance.

☑ Use water when cutting concrete/asphalt to avoid silica exposure. Inspect water flow to insure it is properly working and covering both sides of the diamond blade.

☑ For a 3-speed gear box, make sure the RPM of the saw is matching the recommended RPM of the blade.
