Features & Benefits
Ace Cutting recommends the ICS 680ES chainsaw for general contractors who needs to cut through concrete 7-14" deep. If using this saw everyday or each week, we suggest the Pro Series ICS 695XL model geared for heavy use and higher production rates. This saw is still very reliable and easy to start with a maximum 14" depth of cut.
Proper Chain Tension is very important. Rule of thumb is a diamond chain can be pulled freely around the guide bar by hand easily without binding. Proper chain tension should allow drive links to hang below bar. Click here for full ICS Chain Tension Tip Sheet.
If cuts are consistently crooked, turn the guide bar over and use the other side. Note: normal life of a guide bar is 2-3 chains. Heavy rebar can shorten bar life. With new chains it may be necessary to open up the diamonds, do this by making a few cuts into an abrasive material such as cinder block. Opening the diamonds will increase cutting speed.
Chains measure .220" wide, pre-cutting with a .235" blade will allow the chainsaw to cut freely without any premature wear on side clearance of chain. Important in keeping your saw cut straight by scoring the cut first. This also helps in blade life by using a standard pre-cut diamond blade with cut-off saw. Pre-Cutting is most commonly achieved with gas K970-14" or K970-16" or hydraulic K2500-16" combined with the Vanguard series blades.
