Examine blade flanges for damage, excessive wear and cleanliness before mounting blade.
Blade should fit snugly on the shaft and against the inside/outside blade flanges
Ensure that the blade is marked with an opera ting speed greater than the blade shaft speed of the cutter.
Only cut the material that is specified by the diamond blade. Read the specifications of the diamond blade
to ensure the proper tool has been matched to the material being cut.
ALWAYS keep blade guards in place. Exposure of the diamond blade must not exceed 180 degrees,
Ensure that the diamond blade does not come into contact with ground or surface during transportation.
DO NOT drop the diamond blade on ground or surface.
The engine governor is designed to permit maximum engine speed in a no-load condition. Speeds that
exceed this limit may cause the diamond blade to exceed the maximum safe allowable speed.
Ensure that the blade is mounted for proper operating direction.

INSTALLATION
Introduction/Determining the Right Machine
The machines used for the primary purpose of “flat” sawing. This type of sawing is described as “flat”
because the pavement is cut somewhere close to a horizontal plane. It is the most common type of
diamond blade cutting. Concrete cutters in the industry are available in a variety of types, sizes and styles,
they range from manual or self propelled in horsepower from 7-72hp. It is possible to cut both concrete
(green or cured, with or without rebar) or asphalt with a concrete cutter.
INSTALLING THE BLADE
1. Be certain that the spark plug is disconnected or saw is unplugged.
2. Remove the blade shaft nut and take off outside blade shaft flange.
3. Clean off any foreign particles on the clamping surfaces of flanges and on the mounting surface of the
blade.
4. Place the blade on the blade shaft,lining up the offset drive pin in the blade with the drive pin in the
mounting collar (if the pin system is available on the machine). If your blade has a directional rotational
arrow, position arrow for down cut (diamond tail trailing for down cut).
5. Replace the outside blade shaft flange on the blade shaft. Drive pin on the inside collar must project
through the drive hole in the blade and into the outside collar (if the pin system is available on the machine).
6. Tighten the blade shaft nut securely against star washer and outside flange, using wrench supplied.
7. Reconnect the spark plug or (with switch “off”) plug in the electric supply cord.
Types of Cutting
Cut speed depends entirely on using the correct blade for the material to be cut. Wet or dry, diamond
blades of various specifications are available for cutting concrete or asphalt.
Before Starting/Cold Start/Hot Start
BEFORE STARTING
1. Use correct blade for cutting conditions.
2. Ensure arbors and flanges are clean and undamaged.
3. Mount blade and tighten securely using wrench.
4. When wet cutting, check water jets for adequate flow.
4. Align pointer with cutter blade.
CAUTION: Set unit up in en open area. Avoid close proximity to structures or other equipment. Failure to
do so may cause Inadvertent injury to operator or other persons in the area.
COLD START: Open the fuel valve under the gas tank all the way. Position the engine stop switch located
on the engine, to run. Open the throttle approximately half way and apply the choke. Pull the starter rope
sharply. When the engine starts, open the choke and adjust the throttle as necessary to keep it running.
Allow the engine to warm up for a few minutes before placing it under the load If the engine doesn’t start
after (3) pulls open choke slightly to prevent flooding. Always operate the engine at full throttle when under
load.

OPERATION
NOTE: These starting instructions are general guidelines only. Since many engine options are available,
consult the Engine Manual included with this unit for specific instructions.
CAUTION: Gasoline Engines: To improve the engine service life, allow the engine to idle without load for
(2) to (5) minutes before shutting it down. When the idling period is up, use the stop switch located on the
engine and turn it to stop. Close the fuel valve under the gas tank. Engine flooding can occur if the valve
is left open during transport
TO START CUTTING
1. Start engine and let engine warm up. AII cutting is done at full throttle.
2. Align blade and cutter with cut If wet cutting. Open water valve and turn water safety switch on
3. Step on the left side of PEDAL untiI hear a “click”, then turn on the WHEEL HANDLE on the top
of the machine to remove the equipment forward and reverse step down the right side of PEDAL to
change to “push” driving system.
4. Lower blade into cut slowly.
5. Cut as fast as blade will allow If blade climbs out of cut reduce forward speed or depth of cut.
6. Use only enough side pressure on cutter handles to follow cutting line.
Cutting/Belts & Pulleys
CUTTlNG
Lower the blade into concrete to required depth by turning the tilt crank counterclockwise. Ease the saw
slowly forward. Slow forward pressure if the saw begins to stall.
NOTE: For deeper cuts (4 inches/102mm or more) several cuts should be made in incremental steps of
1-1/2 inch (38mm) to 2 inches (51 mm) until the desired depth is reached.
Push the saw steadily forward using the front pointer as a guide. Exert enough forward pressure so that the
engine/motor begins to labor,but does not slow down. If the saw begins to stall, retard forward movement
until full RPM is restored to the blade. If saw stalls, raise the blade out of the cut before restarting. Avoid
excessive side pressure or twisting of the blade in the cut.
BELTS & PULLEYS
NEVER MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO V7 BELTS AND PULLEYS WHILE ENGINE IS
RUNNlNG
1. The best tension for a v-belt drive is the lowest tension at which the belts will not slip under full load.
2. Take up tension until the belts are snug in the grooves. Run the drive for about five (5) minutes to “sear”
the belts. The impose the peak load. If the belts slip tighten them until they no longer slip at peak load.
Most new belts will need additional tensioning after seating.
3. Remember, too much tension shortens belt and bearing life.
4. Check the belt tension frequently during the first day of operation. Check the belt tension periodically
thereafter and make any necessary adjustments.
