Esco APS 438LRC Low Radial Clearance Air Powered Saw

The Esco APS 438LRC Low Radial Clearance Air Powered Saw is a highly compact air-powered saw, that is designed for applications with tight space restrictions.

This saw works exclusively with EscoWrap Tracks and requires only 8 inches of clearance around tube, pipe, tank, panel, or pillar cutting applications.

Like the Standard and Low Profile air-powered MILLHOG saws, the APS-438 LRC performs perfectly square cuts, and leaves no heat-affected-zone.

EscoWrap tracks securely clamp to the pipe O.D. and the trolley is attached to it for mounting the saw.

This ultra-stable platform permits the operator to easily move the saw around the circumference to produce a clean, perfectly square cut.
