Use of a Quad Saw

The use of a Quad-Saw against a multi-tool for electrical cut outs in plasterboard was demonstrated on site. The results found the Quad-Saw to create less noise and less vibration exposure. The Quad Saw also completed the cut outs in less time and created less dust exposure, due to the fact that on-tool extraction could be fitted, whereas on-tool extraction isn’t possible with a multi-tool. Comparative results are as follows:

  • Quad Saw average noise output: 93.4dB
  • Multi-tool average noise output: 99.5dB
  • Quad Saw measured vibration (ms-2): 11.4
  • Multi-tool measured vibration (ms-2): >20
  • Quad Saw time in minutes to reach limit value: 5 ms2 – 92 mins
  • Multi-tool time in minutes to reach limit value: 5 ms2 – 30 mins
