Cat® Wheel Saws are designed for high-performance trench cutting on a variety of hard or compact surfaces, such as asphalt, reinforced concrete and rocky or frozen ground. Direct drive system with hydraulic piston pump motor delivers maximum cutting rate and wheel torque for optimum production performance and efficiency. Hydraulic side-shift and depth control is controlled from the operator's station and hydraulic side-shift allows wheel positioning from center to the far right of center for cutting close to curbs, walls and other obstructions, without re-positioning the machine. The trench cleaning device is hydraulically operated from the operator's station. Blade can be controlled up and down to remove spoil and ensure a clean trench and deflector plates remove spoil from the machine's path for smooth operation.
