Diamond Products – Core Cut CC150-EE
Diamond Products now offers a new Core Cut CC150-EE early-entry walk-behind saw. It features a 4.8-horsepower Honda GX-160 engine and 1 3/16-inch maximum cutting depth.

Hilti – DCH 230 and DCH 300 Electric Diamond Cutter
The new Hilti DCH 230 and DCH 300 Electric Diamond Cutters are powered by a 2.6-kilowatt motor. They boast cutting depths of 3.4 inches and 4.7 inches, respectively.
One of the key features of the DCH cutters is optional direct attachment of the Hilti VC20U or VC40U vacuum cleaners. Also, both models guide away from the operator’s body for protection from debris. Low vibration helps increase operator comfort even when the tools are used for long periods of time. The DCH 230 and DCH 300 also feature ergonomic design, with the grip and cutting blades in exactly the same axis, allowing more precise guidance with less pressure.
An intelligent electronic control system that constantly regulates motor power to suit the material being cut and the pressure applied to the tool, Hilti Smart Power makes these electric cutters ideal for materials such as reinforced concrete, granite curbstone, slabs, bricks, metal beams and steel pipes.
Husqvarna Construction Products – Soff-Cut 150 D
The Husqvarna Soff-Cut 150 D is an ultra-early-entry concrete cutting system used to reduce random cracking. It was designed especially for the contractor who wants a no-hassle way to make decorative cuts.
An economical and durable saw, the 150 D has a low-noise, low-vibration 4 1/2-horsepower Robin engine and is ideal for light- to medium-duty usage on decorative cuts, driveways and parking lots.
Additional benefits include mechanical blade depth control, nonmarking and nonstick polyurethane wheels, self-aligning guide wheels that guarantee proper blade alignment with the saw joint, and an integrated weight block that maintains proper weight balance for a consistent cut.
