Hydraulic Chain SawTired of chain saws that won't start, or that are noisy and vibrate a lot?
You won't have any of these problems with the new all-hydraulic Hydrasaw, according to Hydrasaw Ltd., Mansfield, England, the manufacturer.
The 17-1b. Hydrasaw plugs into your tractor's hydraulic system, or into a portable hydraulic power unit, with 30 ft. of hose and two fittings mounted on the butt end of the saw. The saw's trigger gives instant power control in most situations, according to J. M. Turner, managing director.
"There's no fire hazard or danger from sparks. You don't have any poisonous fumes from combustible fuels so the saw can be used in enclosed spaces, such as in a workshop. It can even be used underwater," says Turner. "There are no dangerous run-on or overheating problems, and little maintenance since the oil that powers the Hydrasaw also lubricates it."
The saw also vibrates less because it has fewer moving parts. Standard Hydrasaw sizes are 18 to 22 in. but other sizes are available On request. It operates off any hydraulic source delivering about 3 to 4 gals. of oil per minute at about 2,000 psi.
Hydrasaw Ltd. is looking for distributors in the U.S. At this time, the saws are available in the U.S. only through factory-direct sales.
