MK-2000 masonry saws on the roll

New saw series

By

The MK-2000 Series of masonry saws has been designed for high-production cutting. The saws are engineered to cut a variety of masonry types, including cinder block, slump stone block, wall brick, pavers, brick, concrete block and cylinders, roofing tile, marble, granite, decorative rock or almost any other non-ferrous material. They are available with a Honda, Kohler, Vanguard or Subaru engine or electric Baldor 1.5- or two-horsepower motors.

The MK-2000 features an open-back design, which allows for material up to 16 inches long to be cut. The pull-down handle on the cutting head prevents operator fatigue and increases visibility during all cutting operations. Jig-welded, reinforced steel construction, combined with sturdy die cast aluminum uprights, provides positive alignment.

The MK-2000 is designed for use with a 14-inch-diameter segmented wet or dry diamond blade with a .110- to .375-inch cutting width, providing a five-inch depth of cut. The cutting head can be locked in the down position when cutting smaller pieces. It features a spring-assisted cutting head to allow for easier step cutting. The cast aluminum blade guard, with stainless steel water tubes, will not bend or rust. For safety, the stay level blade guard gives 180-degree coverage at all times. Specially located forklift brackets under the frame provide lifting control points for ease of transportation. All saws include a diamond blade, rip guide and water pump.

An optional rolling cart with a rust-resistant, powder-coated finish is inches from the ground, so moving and cutting around the jobsite is fast and easy when setting pavers, stone or brick. The welded frame, with wire mesh decking for easy cleaning, has eight-inch casters and a 38-inch-long handle for easy mobility. The cart has 360-degree swivel casters on the front and locking fixed casters on the rear. The weight capacity of the cart is 1,000 pounds. It cuts down the back labor and work time for installers, so they can get more done in the same amount of time.
