All Trades Contracting employs the a multitude of concrete cutting machines to get the job done right the first time. Our workers are knowledgeable and efficient and our concrete cutting saws and machinery are the best in the industry.
60-inch Concrete Saw
Using a diamond wire is the best way to saw through large thick walls and other large concrete constructions such as foundations and bridges. Our top-of-the-line diamond wire saw is uniquely designed to be powerful and flexible for any of job, big or small. We can cut deeply in confined spaces, precisely in complex structures, both in steel and heavily reinforced concrete.

From setup to final removal and discard, we offer it all.
The remote control saves on operator fatigue and provides safer operation. Here, we are removing the 35 ton concrete section with a120-ton crane.
As part of our concrete services, we offer concrete cutting and removal. Our new state-of-the-art equipment can cut through concrete block, as well as poured and pre-stressed concrete walls and floors. The equipment is powered by a remote hydraulic pump which totally reduces exhaust and noise concerns associated with other systems.

Chain Sawing and Flat Sawing
The saw blade is lubricated with running water that is easily cleaned up by a helper as the operator continues to cut. The water also eliminates the need for special dust control systems. We use a diamond tooth chainsaw (15" & 30") for cutting through concrete and rebar. Once cut, the waste piece is removed and hauled from the site.
Our larger diamond blade saws are capable of cutting to a depth of 31 inches using up to 72" blades. These saws are the largest in the region, and are operated by training and qualified operators.
We offer Diamond Cutting in coring, drilling, hand-sawing, and flat-sawing.
