Kelvin Power Tools stock a range of chop saws, also known as cut-off saws and abrasive metal-cutting saws, from top brands like Bosch, Makita, Metabo and Alfra. They generally cut using an abrasive disc similar to a thin grinding wheel but can also use metal-cutting saw blades, and the blade is normally mounted on a pivoting arm that is attached to a fixed base. These saws have become very useful on jobsites, as lightweight steel fabrication that previously needed to be performed in a workshop with stationary tools can now be done on site. They are lightweight enough to be portable but still robust enough to withstand the rigours of site conditions.
Things to consider when choosing a cut-off saw include bevel/mitre options, portability, speed and rpm, and maximum cutting dimensions. For more information on our range of metalworking tools, contact our Glasgow showroom where a member of our expert team will be able to offer help and advice.
