ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw

desertdiamondindustries-info-icon

Tough, powerful, and designed to cut virtually any material depending on the chain.

The ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw is also safer than other saws because it can cut up to the full length of its guide bar (up to 25"), so you can cut pipe with less excavation and greater safety. Not only that, but its external pneumatic power pack (sold separately) also reduces fumes and emissions so you can cut safely in confined areas like trenches.

Can be used for ductile iron, cast iron, HDPE, PVC, and Insituform lining to stone, brick, and reinforced concrete, among other materials.

ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw

The ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw is tough and powerful and designed to cut everything from ductile iron, cast iron, HDPE, PVC, and Insituform lining to stone, brick, reinforced concrete (depending on the chain).

The ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw is also safer than other saws because it can cut up to the full length of its guide bar (up to 25"), so you can cut pipe with less excavation and greater safety. Not only that, but its external pneumatic power pack (sold separately) also reduces fumes and emissions so you can cut safely in confined areas like trenches.


The ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw comes with one 15" or 20" guidebar and PowerGrit chain for ductile iron pipe, cast iron pipe, PVC pipe, HDPE pipe and Insituform pipe lining; or one  15" guidebar and FORCE4 chain for stone, medium and hard concrete, and concrete with light or heavy reinforcement.

You need a separate pneumatic power pack and hoses in order to use the ICS 701-A Ductile Iron Pipe-Cutting Pneumatic Chain Saw!

ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw Benefits

  • Deeper Cuts: The ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw can cut up to the full length of its guide bar (up to 25"), which can reduce excavation needed to cut buried pipe and increase your safety. This is up to three times the cutting depth of rotary saws of the same size.
  • Safer: The ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw's external hydraulic power pack (sold separately) reduces emissions and noise. This makes it ideal for cutting in confined cutting sites like trenches.
  • Durable: The ICS 701-A Chain Saw's body is made of die cast aluminum.
  • Powerful: The ICS 701-A Pneumatic Chain Saw has the power you need to cut even the hardest materials.
