Expert:  John D replied 9 years ago.

How thick is the concrete and what type of saw are they using?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Reply to John D.'s Post: Concrete is 4 to 6 inches thick, Saw is a Stow,gas powered 13 horse power, 16in. diamond blade.Self propelled.
Expert:  John D replied 9 years ago.

With this saw you can cut between 30 to 70 sq inches per minute, depending on the concrete strength, presence of reinforcing steel, and local conditions.

Taking a near average rate of 40 sq in per min, and assuming concrete thickness of 5 in, the length of concrete cut per min is 40/5 = 8 in, which is 8 x 60 = 480 in or 40 ft per hour.

Assuming a daily efficiency rate of 75%, the lenght that can be cut in an 8 hour day would be 40 x 8 x 0.75 = 240 ft per day.

Also please noe that a 16 in blade may not be able to cut through a 6 inches thick slab (more likely up to 5 inches thick).

Hope this helps.
