CS Unitec introduces a series of pneumatic chainsaws suited for use in underwater applications or in wet, hazardous environments. Series 5 1028 air saws are designed with a chain brake to stop chain movement during kickback or repositioning of the saw during cutting. These air saws feature two separate lubricating systems that automatically oil the saw chain and motor for easy startup and low-maintenance operation. Safer than gas or electric in hazardous atmospheres, these saws are suitable for use in hot work areas, Ex zones or hazardous environments. The 4HP motor consumes 92 CFM of air at 90 PSI.
The Series 5 1028 saw is available with a cutting capacity of 17”, 21” or 25”. Standard equipment includes a .404 pitch Super Chisel saw chain. Carbide-tipped and ripping saw chains are also available.
