Excavator Wood Saws

From mini-excavators to 30 tonners, we can provide an effective circular saw to suit.

Blade diameters range from 400mm up to 1850mm.

We generally recommend tungsten-tipped blades for wood cutting, as they maintain their sharpness longer, particular when cutting firewood which may have sand trapped in the wood.

Echidna excavator wood saws are based on our range of diamond rocksaws.This means that their construction is robust, with double bearing protection for the motor, and effective seals to prevent dirt and water entering the bearings.

Echidna woodsaws have automatic blade brake for safety. They can be converted to a rock or concrete cutting saw by replacing the blade with a suitable diamond blade.

To discuss the suitability of any rock saw model for wood cutting, please contact Echidna or one of our distributors.

Recommended Blades Diameters and Oil Flow Requirements

The following table gives the recommended oil flow required for good tip speed for wood cutting.
The maximum flow rating is a limitation of the saw hydraulics, and exceeding this can damage the motor.

As a very rough calculation, the hydraulic oil flow available to an excavator can be estimated at
10 x excavator weight in tonnes + 22 lpm. It is best to check the specifications of your excavator, or have the oil flow measured for best results.
