New wheel saw attachment from Bobcat
First publishedin World Highways
The new wheel saw from Doosan Bobcat is said to be tough and durable
Bobcat is launching the new WS-SL20 self-levelling wheel saw. This hydraulic attachment is approved for use on the Bobcat S630, S650, S770 and S850 skid-steer loaders; the T590, T650, T770 and T870 compact track loaders and the A770 all-wheel steer loader.
The new saw is designed to cut through asphalt, rock and concrete surfaces efficiently. It has a variable segment design, which allows the user to quickly change the width of the wheel onsite, instead of replacing the complete wheel in a workshop. This can save 10 hours of workshop time, with widths of 50, 80, 100 and 120mm available. Meanwhile the self-levelling feature allows the attachment to follow the contours of the ground while the new design means that a trench cleaner is no longer needed. Using well-proven Bobcat components, the new wheel saw has an integrated stabiliser system and a standard rubber shield for stone ejection/dust reduction. There is a water kit option for dust reduction, while removable deflectors are also standard, allowing the unit to operate close to a pavement edge.
Applications include fixed width trenching for the utilities, creating excavation sites, slot cutting and for maintenance work, including trenching vertical edges for road and pavement repairs.
