Simex has introduced a new wheel saw attachment for compact loaders that digs deeper than previous models to fit the needs of underground utility installers.

The RWA 700 has a dig depth of 700 mm and can mount wheels with widths from 80 to 120 mm, providing contractors with a good range of options when trenching. It features fully hydraulic technical features as well as a lateral tilt function.

Hydraulically operated from the cab, the lateral tilt keeps the cutting wheel vertical, even when the machine itself isn't parallel to the road surface, such as while working on sidewalks. The wheel can be tilted up to 6 degrees in either direction to compensate for height differences when needed.

The segmented wheel lets users quickly change the excavation width while maintaining the same base wheel. Expansion sectors measure 80, 100, and 120 mm in width and can be easily replaced with no downtime or dismantling of the whole cutting disc. Hydraulically adjusted working depth varies from 400 to 700 mm.

Outlets for excavated material are designed to clear the trench efficiently without a scraper. Material is discharged on both sides of the wheel but can also be conveyed to just one side by closing off an outlet when working along a road or flush against a wall.
