Makinex launches floor saw range
By Sarah Ann McCay09 December 2013
Makinex has introduced three new petrol and electric floor saws, providing a greater cut depth and improved durability.
The new FS-130SP Electric 14 in, FS-150P Petrol 16 in and FS-150ETP Electric 16 in are designed for concrete cutting at a depth of up to 153 mm (6 in) using a 14 in or 16 in blade without needing to reconfigure the pulley system.
The new petrol saw comes with a Honda GX270 series motor as standard; chosen for its fuel efficiency, low emissions and quiet performance.
According to the Australian manufacturer, the new floor saws are ideal for cutting concrete slabs, pavements, crack chasing, roads and footpaths with improved precision as the revolutionary flush cutting angle allows greater depths with less physical force while the pneumatic shock absorber adjusts the cut depth to suit the application.
The floor saws also improve accessibility in hard to reach places as they feature an adjustable rear axle enabling the blade to cut flush against walls and curbs. Other features include a depth indicator for accurate cut depth, guided sight for straighter cutting and adjustable handle bar height for ergonomic operation.
“We are excited about the new Makinex Floor Saws range,” said Paul Weaver, international sales manager. “We now have three models, both petrol and electric, that can help operators do their job faster and easier.”
