iQ Power Tools Dry-Cut Power Cutter With Quick Change Options


If you’re not already familiar with the iQ Power Tools Dry-Cut Power Cutter, you should get to know this tool. It allows you to make cuts in all sorts of masonry but it does the job without creating a mess of concrete slurry. At this year’s World of Concrete event, iQ Tools announced some new quick-change options that open this gas power cutter up to even more efficiency.

10-Second Summary

  • 93cc, 6Hp, 2-stroke engine (EPA 3 Certified)
  • 12-inch blade diameter
  • 34 pounds
  • Eliminates the mess of wet cutting and the additional equipment required for dry cutting
  • OSHA compliant
  • Swap dust guard and paver skate attachments in less than 5 minutes

What iQ Tools Says

“This saw is truly game-changing for construction professionals; not only eliminating dust and slurry but for saving time and money with its quick change options. This saw can go from “V’ to “SK’ in under 5 minutes. The interchangeable attachments make it ideal; one tool – two applications.”

-Sarah Hurtado, iQ’s Marketing Communications Manager

iQ Power Tools Dry-Cut Power Cutter Design

Before we get into these attachments, let’s talk about the power cutter that showcases them. iQ’s Dry-Cut Power Cutter features a 93cc, 6Hp, 2-stroke engine that powers a 12″ diamond blade.  Where most other power cutters use water to trap dust particles, iQ Tools opts for a strong vacuum coupled with their quick-spin filtration system.

The result is a power cutter that remains OSHA-compliant but that doesn’t make a horrible, wet mess throughout the project. The iQ Power Tools Dry-Cut Power Cutter traps the dust in a cartridge filter and stores it in a lower chamber for easy and dry disposal.

Even a quick glance reveals that this saw is quite a bit longer than other 12″ power cutters. At 34 pounds, it’s also heavier than similar Pro models – by more than 10 pounds in some cases. The filter system is part of that equation and iQ Tools uses a more powerful engine than most 12″ models as well.

Upgrades

While this tool is pretty innovative in its own right, the hot news has more to do with its quick-change attachments. You can swap them out in less than five minutes. You’ll use the dust guard attachment when cutting into concrete, masonry, and pre-cast materials.

When it’s time to cut into horizontal surfaces like asphalt, installed pavers, and flat concrete, you’ll use the paver skate attachment. It allows you up to a 4″ depth of cut, cutting both forward and backward.

Pricing

At $1950, the iQ Power Tools Dy-Cut Power Cutter exceeds most every other power cutter’s price. As you consider it, weigh the benefits of not needing a water source or a separate vacuum system to get the job done. It’s an all-in-one product – just start the engine and go instead of connecting your peripheral dust collection or water.

Final Thoughts

iQ Power Tools really impressed us with their well-built and highly functional dry cut tile saw. If they’ve conquered the power cutter like they have the tile saw, we can look forward to a dry and dust-free job site. Just be prepared to dig a little deeper in your tool budget.
