Masonry Saw FAQ

Want to know more about masonry saws and masonry saw blades? Browse these frequently asked questions below and contact Dynatech if you want to know more. We carry a variety of masonry saws and want to help you find the one best suited to your needs.

Q. What are the advantages of wet-cutting masonry saw blades?

A. Wet cutting masonry saw blades offer increased safety to the machine operator and equipment longevity for your masonry saw. The water is pumped over the blade as it spins, which decreases the heat and wear on the blade, keeping it cool and reducing the friction caused by unwanted dust and debris.

Also, the operator will be protected from the large amounts of dust produced in dry cutting. When the water runs over the blade, the dust particles are washed downwards rather than becoming immediately airborne. This reduces the dust inhaled by individuals operating or nearby the cutting site.

Q. What types of safety features are available on masonry saws?

A. It is important to protect workers who are dealing with saws capable of going 5,000 revolutions per minute. Some of the safety features available on our MK masonry saws include:

  • Sturdy Steel Frame
  • Blade Guard on the MK-2000 and MK 5000
  • Low Fatigue Cutting Handles
  • Emergency Stop Switch
  • Water Pumps to Reduce Dust
  • Hinged Blade Guard on the MK-1080
  • Foot Petal/Handsfree Control On the MK-5000

Q. Does Dynatech sell gas-powered masonry saws?

A. Yes. You may want to consider gas-powered masonry saws if you are looking for more mobility or power. With a gas powered engine, you will not need to hassle with long electric cords, which can be difficult to manage at remotely located sites. A gas-powered model, the MK-2005 is available with a 5.5HP engine and is a useful, ideal masonry saw.

Q. What are Paver Saws?

A. Paver saws are masonry saws designed specifically for cutting pavers. They offer an optimal control over the cutting job. Our MK-1080 offers a hinged blade guard so changing the masonry saw blades is easy and a specially-designed cutting head handle limits operator fatigue for safety and ease of use.
