The Sawtec CC-100 crack chaser is a high-productivity, walk-behind crack-chasing saw that cuts concrete or asphalt to a 1-inch depth. The unit cuts 6 to 8 feet of crack per minute or up to 3,000 linear feet in a day, depending on the material being cut. It features a swivel caster and a retractable control handle and uses small 5- or 6-inch dry diamond blades in 0.250, 0.375 or 0.500 widths. The smaller blade allows a tighter turning radius, making it easier to follow random cracks.
