Cat® Wheel Saw at Work
An Attachment for Every Job - Cat® Work Tool Attachments
Direct Drive System
Direct drive system features a hydraulic piston pump motor to ensure maximum cutting rate and wheel torque for optimal production performance and efficiency.
Hydraulic side-shift is standard on all models and is controlled from the operator’s compartment. Hydraulic side-shift allows wheel positioning from center to the far right of center. This allows for cutting close to curbs, walls and other obstructions, and minimizes need to reposition the machine.
Hydraulic Depth Control
Hydraulic depth control is standard on all models and is controlled from the operator’s compartment. Hydraulic depth control allows the operator to adjust cut depth on the fly from in cab to quickly adjust to the current job as needed.
Trench Cleaning Device
The trench cleaning device is hydraulically operated from the operator’s compartment. The blade can be controlled up and down to remove spoil and ensure a clean trench.
Deflector plates remove spoil from the machine’s path for smooth operation. Spoil can be discharged left, right, or on both sides of the wheel saw with installation of included blanking plates.
Max Pro Pressure Gauge
Max Pro Pressure Gauge provides operator feedback to adjust speed for maximum productivity in changing material loads. Gauge displays planer performance in real-time conditions and is visible from the cab. Standard on all models.
Concrete bits are standard on all models. Optional all purpose conical bits are available for all Cat Wheel Saws for tarmac and asphalt applications. Extreme life bits are available for extreme duty Cat Wheel Saw applications.
Self standing frame design improves connection and parking.
Stores the OMM (Operation and Maintenance Manual) in a protective case on the attachment, where it can be conveniently accessed.
Attachment mounted tools included to provide quick and easy change out of bits when needed.
Smart Creep is a dynamic drive control system that works in conjunction with the initial creep speed setting. Smart Creep senses load on the attachment being operated, and can automatically adjusts drive command to keep the attachment running at the most productive speed.
Optional Guide Bar
Optional guide bar allows operator to position wheel saw for better visibility of cut path, allowing for a straighter cut.
Water Kit Ready
Ports are strategically located to equip the saw with a water sprinkler kit along hood, which allows for significant dust reduction.
