The SS-24 is a 24-in. self-propelled, gear-driven saw with a maximum cutting depth of 9.5 in. Heavy-gauge steel construction and heavy-duty shaft and bearing assemblies allow it to cut miles of roadway with little to no vibration. A screw-type Blade Depth Control ensures accurate cutting, and the Blade-Saver prevents accessory damage by stopping the saw if the water supply becomes disconnected. Power is provided by a 24-hp gasoline engine with electric start.
