K 760 Cut-n-Break hits a home run
The K 760 Cut-n-Break helps Miami Marlins get ready for the season
To prepare for the 2013 Miami Marlins baseball season, ABC Concrete Cutting Inc. (ABC), based in Pompano Beach, Fla., was contracted to make expansion joints in the four new parking garages at Marlins Park. The project, which will prolong the life of the concrete garages, consisted of cutting one-inch expansion joints around each column in the parking structures, allowing the slabs to move independently from the columns, for a total of about 16,000 cutting locations.
ABC chose four Husqvarna gas-powered K 760 Cut-n-Break power cutters to bring the project home. The saw’s design enabled the operators to work within tight areas, control overcuts and keep consistency in the appearance of each expansion joint cut. The efficiency of the power cutters allowed the project to be completed within two months, with plenty of time to prepare for the season opener.
“The Cut-n-Break was the perfect tool for the one-inch joints,” says Joe Bland, VP of ABC Concrete Cutting Inc. “The saw ran in all orientations, allowing us to make cuts without having to use scaffolding or moving to another location.”
