Pentruder to Debut RS2 at World of Concrete
Published: 21/12, 2021
Last year’s launch of the Pentruder RS2 wall saw in in selected European markets generated was greeted with a vary favorable response, with customers in the United Kingdom nicknaming the new machine the “pocket rocket.”
“Now, the RS2 is ready to make its debut in the US market at World of Concrete 2022. We launched the RS2 in selected European markets in order to keep up with the demand,” explains Pentruder marketing director Marie Peil. “We already have a very good order stock and the interest has been even bigger than we expected. The RS2 will now be rolled out in the rest of the world, starting with North America and Australia.”
Pentruder power and reability
Pentruder machines are well-known among professional concrete cutters for their power and reliability, and the RS2 has been developed to meet the high demands and expectations of the customers. The medium-sized wall saw is basically a perfect all-round saw for the majority of jobs. The saw is small, and the saw head weighs less than 55 lb (25 kg), including the integrated 24-hp (18kW) motor. O optimal blade size for the RS2 is between 26 and 54 in (584 and 1,371 mm) with maximum blade capacity of 63 in (1,600 mm).
The HFi-system comes with a new compact and lightweight high-cycle power pack. The RS2 saw head and PP3 Pentpak are connected with only one cable in order to shorten the setup time. The Pentpak 3 is a much lighter power pack than Pentruder’s previous generations, all to keep the total weight of the system as low as possible.
Another important feature is the system’s modularity. The classic Pentruder track system with the TS-track is much appreciated by customers for its stability and low weight. The RS2 runs on the same track as the well-known high cycle wall saws and has the same distance between the blade and the track feet.
“The innovative design especially the integrated motor system, and ease of operator use that the saws showed on the demonstration were a ‘no brainer’ as far as we were concerned,” says Colin Walker, managing director at Truecut Diamond Drilling Ltd. “From the low maintenance build to the 18Kw of maximum power output, simple power and blade connection and the dynamic guard design ‘ticking all of our boxes,’ we very much look forward to the adding the future modular units as they become available.”
