Edco's dual-arbor DS-16A street saw was designed to accommodate 14- to 18-inch diamond blades. It has a large screw-type depth control that makes it easy to raise and lower the blade for cutting. The design of the saw allows users to make belt changes without disassembling the blade shaft and the arbor alignment is not compromised. The saw has a heavy-duty, box-frame construction for faster, smoother cutting and greater durability.

“Dual arbors allow us to cut on either side, and this saw also has the best depth crank adjustment for raising and lowering the saw blade in and out of the cut,” says Richard Bricker, sales manager of Rentals Unlimited Inc., Frederick, Md. “It is very easy to cut a straight line and also has plenty of power for the bigger cuts. This saw is a long-lasting saw with a very durable design and built to withstand the rental business.”

General Equipment Co.

General Equipment Co.'s SG24/GHP propane-powered surface grinder is designed to break up soft to hard deposits and to clean, polish or expose aggregate slabs for a multitude of purposes. The propane conversion allows for use indoors when electric models are not an option. The twin counter-rotating discs can work a 24- by 12-inch area. An increased wheel base places more weight over the rotating heads, meaning added pressure to the floor or work surface to produce better results.
