Overview
This course covers the essentials of saw cutting, beginning with an overview of the reasons why we saw concrete pavements, as well as an explanation about why concrete cracks (and what to do to control cracks).

The program then covers the different types of saw-cutting machines, as well as some of their basic features and benefits. Next, take a look at blade types and how to select the right type of blade for the job.

The presentation includes many tips and pointers, including:

  • When to saw
  • How to determine the “green zone”
  • How to protect joint intersections during sawing
  • And many more useful tips, all presented with an insider’s view by this leading provider of sawing and drilling services

This is an important program for paving contractors, saw cutting contractors, agencies, consultants, and others interested in concrete sawing operations. Regardless of your experience level, this course provides some exceptional insights and tips to help ensure the short and long term quality of your concrete pavement.
