Can the wire saw method save you time and money? TMG recently saved over $1,000 on a stormwater pipe construction project. The project inserted a large structure on a 60-inch reinforced concrete pipe that had walls 10 inches thick. Traditionally, when cutting a pipe that size, the pipe is cut in stages using concrete cutoff saws and concrete chainsaws. This process usually takes two-three days. For this project, TMG used a wire saw which required less manpower, less equipment, and half the time. Not only did this method save time and money, but it allowed the stormwater pipes to return to full function in less than a day – important during summer thunderstorm season!
