Saw Box and Hood- The tank not only serves to contain the coolant lubricant essential to the cutting process, it also forms the foundation or chassis for the saw mechanisms. In the TR Series, the tank is made of welded steel plate rather than sheet metal. Legs are heavy-duty angle iron welded to the tank and braced to support the saw and heavy loads. The saw is solid with almost no vibration.

The hood is lighter weight steel plate for easier lifting, with a clear, Plexiglass window for viewing the saw blade in operation. The hood confines the saw while in operation for safety's sake and also confines the coolant which is thrown in a heavy spray from the rotating blade. The TR-36 has hydraulic cylinders to help raise and lower the hood. The smaller saw has locking elbow braces with safety locking pin. Two Safety Switches on all either saw prevent the motor from running when the hood is up.

"V" Guide Rail System and Vise- Since the saws are designed for heavy duty slabbing and quartering of large specimens, the vise and rail system are made to handle the job. V-grooved ball bearing guide rollers glide the vise carriage smoothly on precision ground, steel V-rails attached to heavy steel channels. Exacting tolerances insure matching of hardened bearings, rollers and rails. Alignment of the rails to the blade is within approximately .005 maximum across the full blade diameter.

The vise is readily accessible for loading with wood faced jaws that open extra wide. It's made of cast aluminum for the 24 inch saw and welded steel for the 36 inch saw. The vise is easily adjustable and will hold the material securely as it passes through the cutting blade.

Powerglide Hydraulic Feed System - Is standard on both saws and is superior to screw feed systems by providing control of cutting speed and length of cut. Your saw blades will cut better and last longer because the hydraulic system feeds the material without slowing down the blade RPM. Another plus is the ability to stop and start the movement of the vise, allowing you to cut a "starting nitch" in any surface. This kind of control helps prevent blade damage and "tweaking" of the rock from the vise.

Mult-Stage Filter and Recirculation System for Slab Saws - We've improved and enlarged the coolant recirculating systems for our saws and have made them available in kits for use on most other large slab saws as well. The system can move large volumes of clean oil over the cutting surface of the saw blade to keep it cool and lubricated. The holding tanks are heavy duty plastic with multiple settling chambers to filter out particles from the coolant. The tank and submersible pump are easily cleaned.
