EDCO Walk-Behind Saws Celebrate Six Decades of Reliability & Performance

EDCO LogoSince 1960, EDCO has been perfecting the design and function of their walk-behind saws. Their first model was a small 12-inch unit, which set the standard in the market for these machines.

Today, EDCO offers a wide range of walk-behind units from a 14-inch all the way up to a 20-inch, each model building on the one before to ensure the end user is getting the most out of the equipment.

Due to their size, walk-behind saws are ideal for short-run applications where users need both high performance and portability. The different models EDCO produces each have their distinct advantages to the user and the project they are working on.


The SK-14 is the most legacy gas unit in EDCO’s walk-behind saw portfolio with over 50 years in the market. Over the years, the company has been making upgrades to the machine as customers request new features.


The EDCO KL-14 gas walk-behind saw is a unique compact unit that features a foldable handle for easy transportation and storage. This unit is light in weight for easy lifting and unloading and it has an optional water tank kit for cutting in remote areas where water hook up is not available.


Unlike the other machines, the SB-14 is a specialty saw. This saw features an upcut blade rotation. This unit was specifically designed for applications like joint clean out. The SB-14 is also available in electric and air powered versions.


The KL-18 is an 18-inch gas saw that offers quality features at an economical price. The thick steel frame, improved throttle cable and arbor wrenches included make this machine ideal for stepping up to a larger blade from the 14-inch units.


The DS-18 is a dual arbor electric saw where users can cut on either side of the machine, instead of just the right side and is only available in an electric version.


The DS-20 is one of EDCO’s newest machine offerings and was created specifically for the rental industry who asked for a saw with a 20-inch blade capacity.

EDCO knows contractors can choose any equipment for their projects, but prides themselves on creating machines that are not only easy to use, but also built to stand the test of time.
