ICS PowerGrit Utility Chain Saw solution

Sponsored by

ICS PowerGrit® chain saw solutions address operator safety with their revolutionary grinding technology that eliminates rotational kickback and improves operator positioning when cutting pipe in the trench.

Used by public and private water and wastewater departments worldwide, this patented platform, available exclusively from ICS, is the ONLY saw chain specifically designed to cut ductile iron pipe. And the ability to cut 24" pipe from one side radically reduces the difficulty of the job. PowerGrit chain will also cut cast iron, PVC, HDPE, and Insituform pipe materials.

ICS PowerGrit Utility Chain Saw solution

Key Benefits:

• Designed for safety and control when cutting pipe

• No rotational kickback toward the operator

• Cut pipe from one side without changing positions

• Reduce excavation and time on a job.

Success Story

American Water Works Company Inc. is the largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility company in the US, providing services to approximately 14 million people in more than 40 states and Canada.

General purpose cut-off saws had been a frequent solution for cutting pipe in the trench. However, these saws pose an inherent risk of rotational kickback when cutting the lower 1/3 of a pipe.

Rotational kickback is a rapid reaction force created if the blade of a cut-off saw slows or stops suddenly when cutting within the kickback zone (i.e. front, upper quadrant) of the blade.

Beginning in 2012, American Water began a company-wide initiative to transition to the ICS PowerGrit Utility Chain Saw for increased operator safety, speed and ease of use. Reduction in excavation required around the pipe allows for quick turnaround on main repairs preventing unnecessary downtime to American Water's customers.
